Gazette staff
Whether you’re walking or running, the 26th annual Renaissance Run begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at the Midwest City Community Center, 200 N. Midwest Blvd. Too early for you? Perhaps this phrase will change your mind: “concludes with a pancake breakfast.” Thought so. Registration is $30. Call 739-1293 or visit signmeup. com/84804.

Skate it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Turns out there’s a reason 1979’s Skatetown, U.S.A. has never hit VHS or DVD: It really sucks. The alleged comedy starring Scott Baio and Patrick Swayze will get a live, Mystery Science Theater 3000-style beating from The Movie Clubbed, whose members include a few Oklahoma Gazetteers, at 8 p.m. Saturday at Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch. Also to be skewered: a 1972 short by the OKC Urban Renewal Authority. Tickets are $5-$8. Call 236-3100 or visit okcmoa.com.

I can’t this fight this feeling any longer: I’ve gotta tell you that REO Speedwagon rolls into Shawnee for a 7 p.m. Saturday concert at Grand Casino, 777 Grand Casino. (Beyond that, they’re still going to keep on lovin’ you, ’cause it’s the only thing they wanna do.) It’s going to be a good show; we heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from another. Tickets are $49-$84. Call 964-7777 or visit grandshawnee.com.

Here’s hoping the stars come out Saturday night for this party: the 7 p.m. one celebrating International Astronomy Day. The Oklahoma City Astronomy Club invites the public to check out their telescopes (not a euphemism) to see Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus (again, not a euphemism). Head to the park on Old Lakeshore Drive at Lake Hefner’s northeast corner, just south of Hefner Road. Admission is free. Visit okcastroclub.com.

We like this art show for the name alone: Holi-Day of the Dead. We love it because it benefits the art department of the low-income Emerson High School. Starting at 7 p.m. Saturday and running daily through Nov. 23, Holi-Day features works inspired by various big days of the calendar. See ’em at Six One Six Studios, 616 N.W. Fifth. Call 306-0343 or visit sixonesixstudios.com.
