A Fresh New Take on the Traditional Salad at CoolGreens

· 1 Comment

Every now and then I find myself going somewhere to eat that I am sure I will not like.  However, since I do not like to be the squeaky wheel or prevent people from going somewhere just because I do not think I will like it, I go along.  Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised though, and this was the case the other day when I went into a new restaurant based on salads, CoolGreens.

Tombstone Tales—Not As Scary As It Sounds!

· No Comments

Just west of Oklahoma City is the city of El Reno.  I grew up near El Reno, so I know many of its ins and outs.  I’ve also been to many of its different events, including Tombstone Tales, an event held at historic Fort Reno.

While it’s not in Oklahoma City, I can safely say that Tombstone Tales is worth the short drive. 

There are really two parts to the event.  First, you can wander around Fort Reno and check out all the different historic buildings.  These buildings have been carefully preserved so that they look exactly like they did when they were built.  One, the Fort Reno Chapel, is actually still used for weddings today!

The State Fair Returns

· No Comments

September means a lot of things to many different people, but to Oklahomans, it means it’s time for the state fair!  The Great State Fair of Oklahoma, as it is officially called, opens September 16th and runs through the 26th.  The fair always promises a fun time for everyone.  I know I always enjoy the atmosphere, seeing all the different exhibits, and (my absolute favorite part) eating all that amazing fair food!
