It’s a fact of life: People change. This maxim proves especially accurate in the music business — and not always in a good way.

OKG eat: Cool places, cooler drinks

OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

We know. It’s hot. It’s summer in Oklahoma. Cool down by sampling cocktails that local bars and restaurants have concocted just for you. Find a nice, air conditioned space or a shaded patio and while away the hours drinking the flavors of summer. You might decide it’s not that bad after all.
