OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
It’s Pure Country as George Strait performs at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno. Opening is none other than fellow superstar Martina McBride, who, in OKG7’s humble opinion based on the accompanying photographic evidence, is far more fetching. Tickets are $72.50-$92.50. Call 800-745-3000 or visit chesapeakearena.com.

Art it


OKG7 things to do
