Nic’s Grill Has Great Food but Little Seating

· No Comments

Oklahoma City has a lot of different cool little burger joints, but none of them is quite as little Nic’s Grill.  This small building sits on the corner of Pennsylvania and 12th street, but without its sign, you’d think it was a small house or even a storage building.  However, don’t judge Nic’s by its size—it’s a really awesome burger place!

Ingrid’s Kitchen

· No Comments

Ingrid’s Kitchen is one of those places I’ve heard about but just, for whatever reason, never visited.  I recently had the chance to go there for lunch with a friend, and while the food was pretty good, the bakery is what blew me away.  You’ll be amazed at the sheer number of cakes, cookies, and other desserts Ingrid’s master bakers whip up each day.

Ink Life Tour Comes to OKC

· No Comments

Do you love tattoos and tattoo culture?  If so, you’ll be very interested in the Ink Life Tour Tattoo & Music Festival.  It’s coming to the Cox Convention Center April 13, 14, and 15, and it’s bringing a lot with it!

The Ink Life Tour is the world’s largest tattoo and music festival (according to their promotional materials, anyway).  This three-day event is sponsored by the House of Pain Tattoo Studio in EL Paso, Texas, and will be visiting a number of other cities in addition to Oklahoma City.  They’ll be in Texas, Florida, Missouri, and Wisconsin.  In addition to many famous tattoo artists who are travelling with the festival, many of Oklahoma City’s top artists will be on hand, too.

The Disney Magic Comes to Oklahoma

· No Comments

Do you love Disney?  If you’re like me, some of your earliest childhood memories include watching Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, and Dumbo.  If you’ve got kids, you’ve probably introduced them to Belle, Mulan, and, of course, Mickey Mouse.  Disney fans of all ages will love the Disney exhibit currently being displayed at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art.

Entitled “A Century of Magic: The Animation of the Walt Disney Studios,” this exhibit is made up of over 80 animation cels.  The cels come from the private collection of Janis and Domer “Jay” Scaramucci.  It opened March 3 and will be on display through September 16.

Oklahoma Film Festivals and Movie Series

· No Comments

Are you looking for some good movies?  Sure, you could go to one of Oklahoma City’s many movie theaters—Harkins, TinselTown, The Warren—but you might be looking for something other than a popcorn flick.  Oklahoma has a number of film festivals and movie series, and many of them cost much less than going to a theater.  Here are a few different movie series and festivals going on this spring.  Check them out.  Many include great movies that are not only entertaining but also very educational.

Construction has begun on a new Oklahoma City landmark: the I-40 Pedestrian Bridge, also called the SkyDance Bridge, will allow pedestrians to cross the new route of I-40 near Robinson Avenue.  It’s a part of the MAPS 3 downtown park, which will be built in 2013.  The bridge was designed by Professor Hans Butzer and is supposed to resemble the scissor-tailed flycatcher, Oklahoma’s state bird.

Great Ways to Save in Oklahoma City with the Keep it Local Card

· 2 Comments

If you are like me, then you probably like to go and explore the city and all that it has to offer as frequently as you can.  I have found that I am particularly fond of finding things that are local and are distinctively Oklahoman.  Because of this I was very excited to find out about the Keep it Local card.  I hadn’t read anything about it or seen any advertisements, but rather I noticed this stack of cards sitting on the countertop of my local coffee house.  So, I was excited to learn that this card offered a wide variety of discounts at local merchants that I would frequent anyway.  Plus, the ten dollars that I spent on the card was going to be used to help boost the local economy, which is something that appealed to me greatly.

New Bill Would Make OK Law Immune to the Supreme Court

· No Comments

Every now and then, I have to take a break from talking about the great restaurants and fun events of Oklahoma City and talk about some of the interesting, crazy, or just plain weird things our legislature is doing.  I recently learned about a new bill introduced in the Oklahoma state Senate that fits all three categories.

State Senator Ralph Shortey of Oklahoma City recently introduced Senate Joint Resolution 84, a bill that would amend Oklahoma’s state constitution.  This amendment would prevent the United States Supreme Court from reviewing the constitutionality of any Oklahoma law.  Basically, it would remove any federal oversight of Oklahoma laws.
