OKG7 It’s a miracle on 23rd Street


Food and Drink Features

Kelley Chambers

Not so long ago, anyone frequenting retailers along NW 23rd Street between N. Broadway Avenue and Western Avenue was shopping for a wig or pawning a television. Cheever’s Cafe was the pioneering restaurant but sat alone for many years. Things didn’t happen overnight, but more restaurateurs gave 23rd a second look and that strip of Route 66 is a diner’s dream.

Gimme a break

Breakfast items vary from country to country but have one thing in common: they are delicious.

You know you need breakfast before you go on an all-day holiday shopping trip, but all you currently have in your kitchen is ketchup, a can of tuna and some okra because there’s no time to shop for groceries.

When ordering a burger, a side dish of politics may be served free of charge. In Oklahoma, that typically means dishing out conservative opinions blaming Obamacare and/ or President Barack Obama for, well, fill in the blank.

Spirited away

Chill out with tall, cool, liquored-up versions of the all-American milkshake this holiday season.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
Since the first time the term milkshake appeared in a British weekly newspaper in 1885, the drink has gone through many transformations. Initially, it was an alcoholic drink made with eggs, whiskey, milk and ice cream, resembling eggnog. By 1900, however, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry syrups were introduced, sans the whiskey, creating a more familiar version.

Yes, there’s a chill in the air ... occasionally. Yes, the weather outside is frightfully pleasant ... most of the time. It’s Oklahoma. Fall means it’s not always so hot that you want to strip off your skin and let your muscles enjoy the breeze.

Food and Drink Features

It all started on a Saturday night.
