Only in OKC – the Conservatory

· No Comments

Sometimes, you want to be among thousands of people at a huge concert, but sometimes, if you’re like me, you want to go to a smaller venue where you won’t be trapped in wall to wall people.  One of the best places to hang out with friends and listen to live music is the Conservatory, a small music venue and bar that books smaller groups and local bands.  The musical style is mostly indie and punk with a bit of Goth thrown in.

Looking for a great steak?  Then you need to look no farther than Cattleman’s, one of Oklahoma’s most well-known restaurants.  Opening in 1910, Cattleman’s first catered to the ranchers and cowboys who worked and lived new Oklahoma City’s stockyards area.  Today, the restaurant still operates in the same area, but people from all over the city and state come to have one of their classic sirloins.

February 2008 in OKC

· No Comments

February is one of the colder months in Oklahoma City; in fact, our cold season usually centers around February.  This year has been no exception – while it was in the 60s the other day, most days of the month have been freezing cold.  To that extent, very few people want to be outside during the month.  Fortunately, there are a variety of events for OKC citizens and visitors to attend that don’t require spending a lot of time out in the chilly weather.

Dinner in the Deuce – Jan. 11 through Feb. 23

· No Comments

There are many different art exhibits in Oklahoma City, but few of them are as unique as Dinner in the Deuce, an event held by Untitled [ArtSpace].  A relatively new art gallery and nonprofit art organization in Oklahoma City, Untitled [ArtSpace] strives to host a number of different kinds of art shows, and Dinner in the Deuce is definitely one of these one-of-a-kind events.

So, what is Dinner in the Deuce?  Well, sadly enough, it doesn’t involve food.  At least, not food you can eat.  Dinner in the Deuce is an exhibition of different themed dinner tables made by artists from Oklahoma, Texas, and Kansas.  The main focus of these tables is to show off how practical, everyday objects like silverware, plates, and tablecloths can be combined to create incredibly artistic sculptures.
