Midtown man

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


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.

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.
