STUFF 2 DO: Events around Green Country January 4 and 5

This is Stuff 2 Do -- our weekly guide of great things to see and do this weekend in Green Country and beyond.

If dirt-flying action on four wheels is what you're after, get in on Monster Jam, the motorsport show packed with big trucks on big wheels in high-flying stunts at the BOK Center Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. Count on plenty of fast, flying, car-crushing fun for all ages both days.

Expo square hosts its own motorsport event. The Tulsa Shootout revs up the micro race car engines for its final day of racing today. Gates are open now for races in all car categories. The Tulsa Shootout is a prelude to the popular midget sprint car race event, the Lucas oil chili bowl nationals, which begins Jan. 14 at Expo Square's River Spirit Expo.

Don't miss your chance to get in some outdoor ice skating.  Arvest Winterfest, the outdoor holiday festival at the BOK Center, closes tomorrow.  The month-long event, which opened after Thanksgiving, features the outdoor ice rink open from noon to 11 p.m. Saturday and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday.  And if you still haven't taken the downtown horse and carriage ride, Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. is your last chance of the season.

Looking for a good book to read?  Join the Tulsa City-County Library and Tulsa Library Trust for Now Read This: Take 5.  Five librarians will give 5-minute presentations on five new titles for the New Year at the Hardesty Arts Center. The night includes book trivia and door prizes, plus it's a great way to begin that New Year’s resolution many of us make to read more. Join the conversation at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. .

Later in the week, the Tulsa Playboys band brings western swing back home to Cain’s Ballroom.  Honoring that toe-tapping medley of jazz and country-western music made famous by bob wills and his Texas Playboys almost 70 years ago, the Tulsa playboys play favorites Friday night.  Doors will open at 6 p.m., and the show is for all ages.
