Munn ho!: Third in a series

Not as raved over, but still quite newsworthy


Gazette staff
Maybe it’s because her new NBC sitcom finally premiered to indifference, but the Interwebs aren’t as obsessed over former Oklahoman turned actress/model/geek icon Olivia Munn as in weeks past.

Italian nights

Bellini’s Ristorante celebrates its 21st birthday by refocusing on what made it great: Italian wine and Italian food.

Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Italian reds, for the most part, aren’t meant to be sipped on the patio or enjoyed by a crackling fire. They’re made to complement food: hearty Italian food. Drinking them without the accompanying meal usually leads to two conclusions: tastes like a sour cherry, and too much acid.

The Illusionist

Nice trick


Rod Lott
If I could play God, when the Best Animated Feature envelope is torn open at next month’s Oscars, the winner wouldn’t be the presumed lock of “Toy Story 3,” but the dark horse, “The Illusionist.”

Bite Size

Cooking the professional way

Bite Size

Carol Smaglinski
Emeril Lagasse, the national TV personality and best-selling author, came to Dillard’s in Penn Square Mall to greet Oklahomans and was a huge hit. While he was here, he did a demonstration for the audience members, showing them how they could “kick it up a notch during the holidays.”

Barney's Version

Enjoyable, but nothing spectacular


Rod Lott
At last month’s Golden Globes, when Paul Giamatti won Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy for “Barney’s Version,” you, too, may have asked, “What the hell is ‘Barney’s Version’?”

On the move

Local stores are playing musical chairs: expanding, name-changing musical chairs. Confused?


Jenny Coon Peterson

It can be hard when a store moves. Even with lots of notice, many people will miss the lead-up to the big move and just assume the shop popped its clogs. It doesn’t help when old addresses keep showing up in Google.
