If you’re a fan of Star Trek: Voyager, you know Robert Picardo as the holographic Doctor, one of the most popular characters on the show. He’s also appeared in Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, Smallville, China Beach, The Wonder Years, and much more. Would you like to meet this awesome actor? If so, just be in Oklahoma City on November 6 and 7!

If you are like me, then you may have been previously oblivious to the fact that Oklahoma is becoming well known for its wine. While it is not a traditional wine region like the Napa Valley in California, there are several interesting wineries popping up in the region. Plus, for a relatively inexpensive amount of money you can take a tour and own a bottle of your own Oklahoma wine.

On November 2, 2010, Oklahomans will make history. How? We will elect the state’s very first female governor. The headline election is between Representative Mary Fallin (Republican) and Lt. Governor Jari Askins (Democrat). Both women bring experience and knowledge to the position, and I’ve been impressed by both in the debates. Fallin brings to the table her experience as both a member of Congress since 2006 and as a former Lt. Governor, while Askins has severed as Lt. Governor since 2007 and has experience as a judge and as a member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives.
In the warehouse district there are many old buildings that loom over the streets, but for the last twenty-six years the Bricktown Haunted Warehouse has been an attraction that has taken the scary aspects of one of these buildings and turned it into a three story haunting free for all. In fact some claim that the start of the recent revival in that area began with the opening of the first season of the haunted warehouse back in 1984.
If you are looking for a good family Halloween scare, then you will definitely want to look into the FrightFest celebration at Frontier City. It has been at least five years since I’d decided to venture to the popular Oklahoma tourist destination during their October celebration of all things haunted, but I thought that this year might be a good time to stop in and see what (if anything) had changed.
Ready to hit the river for another Oklahoma Regatta Festival? The 2010 festival takes place on the Oklahoma River in what is now being called the Boathouse District. It features rowing and kayaking competitions between university teams from around the country. The regatta is being held October 9 and 10.
What does it include? Well, on Saturday, the Head of the Oklahoma Regatta event starts at 11:00 a.m. Visitors can cheer on their favorite collegiate or club team as the row the 2.5 miles against others. Later, at 7:30 p.m., the river will host the OGE Night Sprints, short races featuring many of the same teams. The day tops off with a fireworks extravaganza. Of course, food, live entertainment, and more are available during the day to keep you entertained between races.
