First Street Flea
First Street Flea
Downtown has plenty of shopping venues, but a new venture delivers on all things unique.
Once a month, First Street Flea welcomes more than a dozen vendors to 823 E. First St., where a carefully curated selection of goods is for sale — from books and records to furniture, collectibles, clothing and jewelry. Plus, there’s always a food vendor on site, like Chimera with its craft coffee and breakfast tacos.
First Street Flea is open 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on select Sundays. Mark your calendars for March 19 and April 23.
Let’s do brunch
Brunch is big downtown and local eateries cater to the crowds every Saturday and Sunday.
Bramble’s brunch menu features standards like omelets and pancakes, but with a twist. Try the savory and spicy white cheddar short stack topped with jalapeño maple syrup.
Weekday breakfast and lunch hotspot The New Atlas Grill has expanded its hours to include brunch from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays in the art deco-laden Atlas Life Building.
Inside the historic Ambassador Hotel, try the Chalkboard’s famous Bloody Marys and the Okie Benedict — two biscuits, sausage patties, poached eggs and sausage gravy.

The Tulsa Foundation for Architecture hosts Second Saturday walking tours where expert guides lead informative and educational tours of some of downtown’s most storied districts. Each month’s tour carries a different theme. In March, modernism is the subject followed by historic renovations in April.
Reservations are suggested. The tour costs $10 with all proceeds going back to TFA.

The performing arts
Downtown has been home to the arts for decades. Up for some musical theater? Try “Motown the Musical” March 14-19 or “Sweeney Todd” March 3-12. Tulsa Ballet’s performs “Swan Lake” March 24-26 — all at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center.
And, while big names like Miranda Lambert and Kansas will headline shows at the BOK Center and Brady Theater this month, don’t forget to check out local acts at venues like the Shrine, Vanguard, the Fur Shop and more.
