Spokie dokie

A downtown bike share program offers free one-month memberships to celebrate Earth Day.


News

Louis Fowler
More motorists than bicyclists is a problem that Downtown OKC Inc. has been trying to rectify. Since the 2011 launch of the Spokies bike share program, which provides downtown residents, employees and visitors a healthy and economical way to get around the area, the number of people who are taking advantage of it continues to grow, according to Jill Brown DeLozier, marketing director at DOKC.

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

Louis Fowler
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.

OKG 7 eat | Grease? Onions? Yes, please.


Food and Drink Features

Louis Fowler

Legend has it that the first onion burgers were created in El Reno during the Great Depression by enterprising burger-flippers looking for ways to stretch increasingly scarce meat. That costcutting measure still lives and breathes today. While El Reno might be the home of the onion burger, there are plenty other metro eateries that offer the delightful fare.

Midtown man

Bradley Wynn’s latest book explores the rich history of OKC’s first suburban district.


Nonfiction

Louis Fowler
Bradley Wynn, a sheriff’s deputy by day and author by night, recently published his second book in a series about the history of Oklahoma City’s unique districts. After the success of his book about Film Row for Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America series, he wrote Oklahoma City’s Midtown. Both books lean heavily on a photo-based format with in-depth descriptions of each picture.

OKG7 Eat: Eastside eats


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler

Even though NE 23rd Street is one of the most historical streets in Oklahoma City, many locals tend to forget that it’s also home to some of the most grassroots and homegrown eateries in town, the best having a specific focus on soul food, barbecue and old-fashioned Southern cooking. NE 23rd Street restaurants are OKC’s culinary history all in a few blocks and really should be revered as such.

Ghosts, busted

A new book by an OCU professor challenges the supernatural through spooky skepticism.


Nonfiction

Louis Fowler
Are those bumps in the night, creaky floors or demonic eyes staring through the windows random acts of coincidental nature, easily explained through logic and reason? Or could they be something more, something from, perhaps, beyond our realm of scientific knowledge?

Wills power

Oklahoma legend Bob Wills finally gets his cinematic due thanks to OKPOP.


Features

Louis Fowler
Chuck Berry. Little Richard. Elvis Presley. These are usually the first names that come to mind when rattling off who the originators of rock and roll were. Sadly, only to those in the know, the name Bob Wills — the King of Western Swing — very rarely makes the list. But if Tulsa’s Oklahoma Museum of Pop Culture (OKPOP) has its way, it could rewrite the pop music history books forever.

OKG7 Eat: Love bites


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
But what about the lonely, the unloved and the unattached left to put ourselves back together after the interruptus of Valentine’s Day? Bah. Heck, you’ve still got a pocket of dollars and a chip on your shoulder. Here’s a list of places to spend that extra dough, all on the one person you should love the most: Yourself.

OKG7 Hot tropic


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
We can only stare at Old Man Winter and hope that someday we’ll thaw out and retire to a sandy, tropical locale somewhere along the equator, where we can enjoy various fruit-heavy drinks and exotic meals served by well-trained monkey butlers. Even though that Jimmy Buffett-inspired daydream might not happen anytime soon, the metro offers plenty of tropical getaways that will drive those winter doldrums away.

OKG7 Eat: Winning in Windsor


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
Situated west of Interstate 44 to the Bethany line on the NW 23rd Street corridor, the Windsor District is the latest metro initiative designed to show off the best culture Oklahoma City has to offer. After a city investment of $13.2 million dollars through the 2013-2016 Streetscape Project, Windsor has fast become OKC’s International District.

OKG7 Eat: Snack to the future


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
Too bad time machines don’t exist. Imagine hanging out in diners, inventing rock ’n’ roll and making out with your own mother at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance. Wait... Yeah. The last two things will always be impossible. In the meantime, those classic ’50s diners still light up our main streets. Pile the family into the DeLorean.

OKG7 Eat: Fish dishes


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to assume that when it comes to seafood, Oklahoma is not the place to satiate that constant craving for fish dishes. However, with over 50,000 miles of shoreline along lakes and ponds that are stocked with edible species like bass, walleye and catfish in this great state, many metro eateries offer a wide variety of aquatic delicacies — from Southern-fried to elegantly served — that will surprise even the pickiest pescatarian.
