Do you have any plans tonight?

If you don’t and are searching for something fun to do in Tulsa, we might have a solution. This week the George Kaiser Family Foundation announced a new app called Root Tulsa.

It is similar to apps like Yelp and Urbanspoon letting users know about places to eat around town, but also it features events near you.

The app is only available on an iPhone for now, and it's free.

A program officer at the foundation says if users have any ideas for the app, you can submit them at the app's website.

Friendly reminder: Of course, if you are planning to attend an event outside, don't forget to download our app!

There are a lot of cool things about this app for those who might be new to Tulsa or just looking for something new to do.

First: It’s free and available on iTunes already.

Click HERE to download! 

Second: Easy to use

There are four categories to choose from including places, stories, guides and events.

Places includes local attractions, restaurants, bars, music venues and museums.

Stories gives context on the history of certain areas and introduces the user to “notable Tulsans.”

 

Guides offers shortcuts and tips from locals

Events shows all the things happening, just search the dates and find upcoming events! 

Third: There are so many cool and interesting facts about Tulsa included in the app.

The app serves as an urban field guide for those trying to navigate through Tulsa, especially for downtown.

So, what are you waiting for? Go out and have fun!
