OKG7 eat: Soccer pub crawl


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

Football season is finally here! We call it soccer, but that doesn’t have to stop you from indulging in two favorite European traditions: walking and pub crawling. Since the Energy FC games will be alcohol-free, we’ve created a list of pubs and taverns within walking distance from Clement E. Pribil Stadium at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School.

Pure nachismo

After five years as a Tuttle favorite, Nachitos is aiming to be the next out-of-town cult eatery.


Food and Drink Features

So many restaurateurs describe their customers as being “like family” that it is pretty easy to become cynical when hearing yet another one repeat it.

OGK7 eat: Dollars to doughnuts


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

While the idea of fried dough may or may not be American in origin, the traditional ring-shaped confection that we know and love does originate here. According to The Smithsonian, doughnuts were created by an enterprising New England sailor’s mother who wanted a way to store and transport pastry. Regardless of its origin, the doughnut is a modern favorite.

OKG7 eat: BBQ for me and you


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

Ubiquitous barbecue joints are a point of state pride and, in some cases, a reason to poke fun. When comedian Jim Gaffigan visited Oklahoma last year, he commented on the sheer number of barbecue restaurants in the Sooner State. Whether it’s the rub or the sauce, pork or beef, there’s one thing we all can agree on: A full plate of smoky, sweet barbecue with all the sides is heavenly.

Bloody Mary crawl

Everyone loves a classic Bloody Mary. Here’s where to find some wonderfully different concoctions of the famous drink.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
The “hair of the dog that bit me” is often mumbled the next morning, after a night of excessive drinking. This age-old request for alcohol’s curative properties for a hangover is sometimes known to lessen the effects of the night before.
