New Tulsa Center Is Main Event’s 20th

by Bob Johnson 0

Main Event Entertainment has opened its second bowling-anchored entertainment center in Oklahoma and its 20th overall.

The new center is located in Tulsa, near the intersections of Highway 75 and West 81st Avenue.

“The Tulsa community has welcomed us with a great deal of enthusiasm,” said Main Event Vice President of Marketing, Sherri Landry. “We share our 20th location milestone with the Tulsa community, and we welcome them to come in and create lasting memories with their friends and families through our ‘Eat.Bowl.Play.’ experience.”

The grand opening of the center featured a $2,500 donation made to the Sand Springs Tornado Relief effort, providing non-perishable food, water, clothing, assistance with medical resources and financial assistance to victims of the late March tornado that devastated the Sand Springs community. Sand Springs is about seven miles west of Tulsa.
