If you are like me, then you enjoy finding small, out of the way restaurants because you never know what you are going to find. The other day I joined my brother and his family for dinner at The Caffé Pranzo. When we first stepped into the restaurant I was not sure of what we were going to find; however, we were instantly greeted with a warm welcome and seated at a nearby table. The atmosphere is intimate and the walls are decorated with a wide variety of local art that is readily available for sale if you find a piece that you like. Also, each table has a different interesting set of salt and pepper shakers, and there is a small collection of other shakers on display, creating a unique look and feel.

Last year, I mentioned that a local Harry Potter group was hosting their first annual charity ball near the new year. Well, this year, the Oklahoma Wizards League (OWL), is back, and they’ve moved their ball to the day before Valentine’s Day. While last year’s wizard rock extravaganza was called the Yule Ball and was winter-themed, this year, the theme is Carousing With Cupid. Once again, it will feature some of the top wizard rock bands from around the country. This year’s concert will be hosted by the one and only Professor Gilderoy Lockhart, the only Hogwarts professor to acknowledge Valentine’s Day in the book series.
Mmmm, Chocolate! Who doesn’t love that rich, sugary taste of one of life’s greatest treats? And if you’re in Oklahoma City on February 7, you can attend a very special, very chocolatey event. Chocolate Decadence 2008 is both a widely anticipated event and a pre-Valentine’s Day tradition for OKC. Chocolate Decadence 2008 runs from 5:30 until 8:00 pm at the Hudson-Essex Office Lofts located at 825 North Broadway.
What will you find at Chocolate Decadence? Obviously, a ton of chocolate! You’ll be able to sample treats from some of Oklahoma City’s finest restaurants and caterers. Some of the attending sweet makers include Brown’s Bakery, CocoFlow, Deep Fork, Mickey Mantle’s Steakhouse, Nonna’s, Tom & Jerry’s, and the Bricktown Brewery.
Are you ready for that white Christmas that you didn’t get in December? If so, then you’re ready for Oklahoma in February. This is typically our coldest month (I say typically because March can sometimes surprise us with its bitter coldness). Snow finally hits the ground, turning everything into a sparkling, blindingly white wonderland. However, just as with January, the dreaded layer of ice is often hanging around. It’s especially dangerous on the roads during these winter months thanks to black ice, ice that has combined with asphalt, oil, and other things. It’s called black ice because it’s nearly impossible to see, making it twice as deadly.
