Top of the Town, downtown Tulsa, T-Town, that is!

Tulsa is commonly referred to as "T-Town," and when we refer to downtown, it is "downtown Tulsa." What an amazing spot for the Child Care Resource Center to host its 3rd Annual "Top of the Town" fundraiser! Held Thursday June 16, 2011, the event was sold out before it started. On the route, there were eleven venues in downtown Tulsa to visit and food was provided by several restaurants. You could start wherever you wanted and visit each stop for as long as you liked.

My friend Linda and I began at the Atlas Life Building at 415 South Boston Avenue. We visited the Atlas Grill and the Tulsa Press club, both on the first floor. Now housing the Courtyard by Marriott, we toured several rooms there - we received a massage in one hotel suite, tasted sushi in another, enjoyed tequila injected strawberries in another, then returned to the bar for a glass of wine and great piano music.

From there, we traveled north to the elegant Mid Continent Tower where we enjoyed music and bruchetta from Ti Amos on the 36th floor - what an amazing view from that roof top!

Next on the tour was the Kennedy Building where champagne and chocolate were served on the 10th floor. We traveled through The Tunnels connecting the 320 Building and Kennedy Building. If you've never toured downtown Tulsa's tunnels, you need to make a point to do that! In the 320 South Boston building, we enjoyed scrumptious mini pot pies and music in the lobby, then went up to the 21st floor to enjoy the amazing view.

Next stop on the tour was First Place Tower, then we headed over to 5th Street to visit The Mayo 420 Building and the Mayo Hotel Penthouse Bar - yet another spectacular view.

With tired feet by then, we took advantage of the Goldzern Tulsa Pedicabs to ride back to the Elote Cafe and Mod's Coffee & Crepes. Last stops of the tour included the Waite Phillips Penthouse/Philcade Building and a VIP reception for sponsors in the Philtower Building.

Downtown Tulsa is enjoying a revitalization surge, and it was a delightful way to re-visit many buildings I hadn't entered in years and see some I had never visited.

I'm very excited about the Atlas Life Building being re-vamped and turned into a Marriott and of course, it was a treat to see the rental apartments at the Mayo 420 Building. I recently visited the Mayo Hotel Penthouse Bar for another social function and have attended several wedding receptions there - the restoration job for the hotel is simply exquisite.

My dear friend Nancy Feldman was Honorary Chair of the Top of the Town Committee, and we were happy to see Nancy and her husband Raymond as we toured. The Child Care Resource Center (CCRC) is on the cutting edge of best practice for children, families and teachers, promoting quality care for EVERY child. CCRC provides services in Tulsa, Creek, Rogers and some Wagoner counties. If you haven't donated to CCRC, please consider doing so.

It was an evening to be treasured and I hope you enjoy some amateur photos taken by my point & click camera. Linda and I ran into several friends as we toured downtown Tulsa and met some new ones along the way. This is definitely going to be on my 2012 calendar for the 4th Annual Top of the Town event!

Lori...what a fun event indeed! In fact, it's given me an idea for here in Atlanta....we've got LOTS Of highrise buildings......many are condos so the top would be limited, but, hmmmmm....my wheels they are spinning.

Now, tell me...what is the unusual round building near the river?

I'm telling you guys, it was an AWESOME fundraiser! Thom, the round building is called University Towers, a very posh apartment building.

I know it was a lot of work organizing this fundraiser, and I also saw many friends volunteering. The food was donated from area restaurants, the massages were given by students of a community college, there were a few drink tickets that came with the package and other places had cash bars. It was truly a great way to tour downtown Tulsa and benefit a great local charity at the same time.

Thom, if you decide to start something similar in Atlanta, I'm happy to mail you my program or put you in touch with one of the committee members!
