What is the Blue Jackalope anyway? Find out at the Crosbie Heights' October 4th Block Party/Fundraiser in Tulsa!

My husband and I first visited this neighborhood grocery & coffee shop to meet some friends. We now pass it every time we drive to the Joe Station Bark Park.

It's located at 306 S. Phoenix Avenue (off Charles Page Boulevard) and is open 9a-7p Monday through Friday; 8:30 a-5p Saturday and 9a-7p Sunday. They serve great sandwiches too.Tulsa's Blue Jackalope Grocery & Cofee in Crosbie Heights

The Blue Jackalope Grocery & Coffee promotes sustenance: that which sustains life and spirit; nourishment; food.

Owner, Scott Smith, is re-creating a gentler time of foraging for dinner while gettin' to know the folks around town. "It ain't just groceries and coffee: it's Community."

In the middle of Crosbie Heights, a Front Porch community where neighbors help neighbors, it's an older neighborhood just west of downtown Tulsa. We are witnessing a rebirth of sorts - once dilapidated homes being brought up to date and repaired by families and individuals wanting to live close to downtown.

I sold a house at 7th & Quanah about the time the Blue Jackalope was opening and am happy to report that it's turning out to be a huge success. It has been fun to watch its popularity grow.

In his quest for community involvement, Scott is active in community gardening and is organizing the Crosbie Heights Community Farm Potluck & Music Festival to be held this October 4th. Full Moon Fiesta! 5 Bands. FREE! (bring your favorite dish)Tulsa's Crosbie Heights Community Garden

On Sunday, October 4, 2009 the Crosbie Heights Community Farm, located at 311 S. Phoenix, will hold a block party/fundraiser. (Garden photo to right.)

Musical guests include Travis Fite, Joe Mack, Jesse Aycock, Sapien and Scales of Motion.

  • Family Friendly (dogs on leashes welcome, too)
  • Potluck (bring your favorite homemade dish)
  • Fresh produce from the garden
  • Bicycle-powered blender c/o Bike Soup co-op
  • Kids Art Zone
  • FREE!

The event kicks off at 2pm with the first band scheduled at 3. The Farm is located across the street from the Blue Jackalope Grocery/Café, just west of the BOK Arena on 3rd Street.

And, if you are wondering . . . the jackalope — also called an antelabbit, aunt benny, Wyoming thistled hare or stagbunny—is an imaginary animal of folklore consisting of a cross between a jackrabbit and an antelope, goat, or deer, which is usually portrayed as a rabbit with antlers.
