What do you want? More bacon! When do you want it? How about now? Bricktown Brewery has answered that call and taken the show on the road. Truckburger offers all of your favorite things about the brewery (minus the booze). There are bacon burgers, candied bacon, thick-cut fries and bacon-stuffed hot dogs. Bacon- stuffed hot dogs, people. It’s everything you love about Bricktown Brewery’s food, gone mobile. Speaking from personal experience, eating at this truck tastes like you’ve won something.

Also, Bricktown Brewery just opened a new location in Owasso, and manager Blake Lippert said, “the turnout has been incredible.”

Have your coffee, and booze, too!

District House in the Plaza District is about to become your new favorite hangout for more than coffee; it now offers beer and wine service.

Since it just received its beer and wine license, the selection will continue to grow with a strong emphasis on local craft beers. You can also look forward to menu updates to complement the new beers and wines. And as if that’s not enough, District House will host beer tastings from local craft breweries during Live on the Plaza 7-11 p.m. the second Friday of each month.

Good food, good company

If you prefer to spend your Saturday mornings sleeping in, there’s no reason you should have to miss out on local organic produce. Now, thanks to the Paseo Art District Sundaze Organic Festival, you don’t have to. The green space next to Twisted Root Gallery, 3012 N. Walker Ave., is now home to a different kind of farmers market.

“This is the only farmers market in the evening. It’s a chance for the community to get together and enjoy some good food and live entertainment,” said Brian Dunaway, the event’s creator.

The festival features local food vendors and entertainment from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. There are an array of products from several vendors, including produce from W Bar M Sheep and Wool in Yukon and baked goods and granola from Mim’s Bakery, 1235 SW Second St.

Dunaway said that a local cheesemaker also will be featured and various arts and crafts will be for sale. He said he hopes to draw more vendors as word about the festival gets out.

“At the first one [July 20], there were about 150-200 people,” he said.
