Food and Drink Features

Devon Green
Two enterprising former restaurant owners looked around Oklahoma City’s restaurant industry and thought it could be a lot greener. Chris Buerger and his partner, Brian DeShazo, took notice of the fact that there is no infrastructure to recycle in area restaurants.

Kynd duds

A local company creates clothing and accessories using bamboo, a truly sustainable resource.


Devon Green
At Twisted Root Gallery, 3012 N. Walker Ave., in the historic Paseo Arts District of Oklahoma City, tucked into a space next to several paintings on display for sale, is an unassuming display of sunglasses that looks like it might be another piece of art itself. The ingenious frames with reflective, opaque lenses are so striking that they are at home there.

Old wood, new tricks

A local artist breathes new life into materials previously thought to be useless.


Visual Arts

Sometimes it really is a case of the old adage, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” For Paul Bagley’s art, you could say, “One man’s discarded materials become another man’s priceless work of art.”

It’s easy being green

Local farmers are making it easier than ever to eat fresh in OKC.


Food and Drink Features

Devon Green
There was a time not too long ago when it was difficult to find out where your food came from. More specifically, we all know where food comes from, but not in the sense that we have any inkling of the person who picked the potato or carrot on our plates. It is a fairly safe assumption that quite a few people do not know what garlic looks like growing in the ground. A surprising number of Americans do not know the provenance of their food.

OKG7 eat: Fresh off the farm


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

There was a time not too terribly long ago in Oklahoma City when there was a chain on every corner and the closest you could get to local was to make a trip to your farmers market and make the food yourself. We always celebrate all things local, and luckily, it’s getting easier for OKC restaurants to incorporate locally grown, all- natural ingredients into what they offer.

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.
