Only in OKC – Coffy’s Cafe

· No Comments

Are you trying to get away from the fattening, unhealthy foods that seem to be all that fast food places serve?  If so, you may want to check out Coffy’s Café.  This new little café in OKC features all gluten-free and natural meals.  They have selections for just about any diet, including vegetarian.  I stopped by Coffy’s the other day and was quite surprised by the number of different things on their menu.  They had some incredibly tasty looking donuts, brownies, cakes, and cookies, all of which were gluten-free.  I tried one of their brownies, and it was very good.

Only in OKC: The Belle Isle Brewery

· No Comments

Looking for a great place to eat?  One of my favorite locations is the Belle Isle Brewery, a restaurant located in the upscale shopping center of 50 Penn Place.  While I can’t really afford to shop there (with the exception of the Full Circle Bookstore, which I’ll be covering in another post), the Belle Isle Brewery is a great place to eat that is really affordable. 

 

The Belle Isle Brewery does, as the name suggests, have a number of beers available.  Not sure which one you want?  You can always ask for a sampler—you get four tiny little shots of beer to try out.  The restaurant also has several different types of wines and some mixed drinks if beer’s not your thing.

Spraygrounds in OKC

· No Comments

Lately, I’ve noticed something different about some of the parks in Oklahoma City.  Some of them have taken out some equipment (or added a new area) that’s full of tall pipes and such.  At first glance, I had no idea what this was all about.  Then I saw some kids pull on handles and press buttons.  Suddenly, the whole area looks like a rain storm—all those pipes turned out to have water sprinklers inside them.

Movie Theaters in OKC

· No Comments

Looking to catch a movie while you’re in Oklahoma City?  There are a number of theaters you can go to, but the largest (and, in my opinion, nicest) are Harkins, Dickenson Penn Square 10, AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, and Cinemark TinselTown.

Harkins 

Harkins is the newest theater in Oklahoma City.  It’s one of the centerpieces of Bricktown, the revamped downtown area of Oklahoma City.  The theater has sixteen different screens, including the Cine Capri.  The Cine Capri is the largest movie screen in Oklahoma City, and if you really want to feel like you’re in the middle of the action, this is the theater for you.  The seats are incredibly comfortable, and all theaters have stadium seating, so you won’t be trying to look around anyone’s head.

Only in OKC – Rococo Restaurant

· No Comments

Looking for something a little different than the usual steak, seafood, or lobster?  Then you’ll want to try Rococo’s, an East coast restaurant that features some very different entrees.  Oh, sure, you can get a burger, fettuccine alfredo, or a chicken salad, but you can also try things like Prince Edward Island mussels, Long Island duck, or the roast rack of Colorado lamb.

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.

Only in OKC – Cattleman’s Restaurant

· No Comments

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.

Only in OKC – Will’s, Saturn Grill, and Madison’s

· No Comments

Are you hungry?  I hope so, because I have three great places to eat for you!  I love to eat out, so much so that sometimes, I’ll actually have every meal at a restaurant.  Here are three of my favorite places that you can hit in a day, so if you’re looking to plan out your breakfast, lunch, and dinner, here’s one possible combination.

Breakfast – Will’s Coffee

Located on Western in the Will Rogers Theater (near Musashi’s and Sushi Neko), Will’s Coffee is a little coffee shop that offers a nice variety of drinks, pastries, and sandwiches.  The prices aren’t any more expensive than Starbucks, and in my opinion, the drinks are better.  The people at Will’s are always very friendly, too

Oklahoma Centennial Regatta – The Regatta, hosted by Chesapeake Energy and Oklahoma City University, is October 11 through the 14 and features rowing teams from around the US.  For an event that just began a few years ago, the regatta has become a huge weekend full of music, art, food, and more.

An Affair of the Heart craft fair – everyone who loves crafts and homemade items loves those times during the year (October and February) when the An Affair of the Heart show is held.  The event now takes up at least four huge buildings at the fair ground, and you almost need to take two days to see it all.

Thunder Alley – Pregame Celebrations Will Continue

· No Comments

This blog was going to be one about the harmony of Oklahoma City Thunder fans, and the exciting way that the community was coming together in front of the Chesapeake Energy Arena to watch the playoff games and celebrate these victories together.  However, in light of the events that took place in Thunder Alley late Monday night (5-21-12), I think it will end up being about something else entirely.  After all, it is difficult to write about team spirit and community when eight people were shot and a pregnant fan was injured.
