Buffalo exchange

The majority of the action was going on upstairs, though. When you walk onto the wooden rooftop, you have two options: turn left for the bar (always a solid maneuver) or right for the music. The downtown setting provided an elegant backdrop, with the iconic Frost Bank Tower literally right across the street. A total

The Conjuring / Insidious: Chapter 2

This summer, the smash of The Conjuring crowned him king. Based on a “true” case file of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (if you believe bunk to be true), the film begins with perhaps the most frightening doll in cinema history — or at least since Poltergeist — and things just grow creepier from

Pit Stop

Thursday night at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art represents your second chance to take in Yen Tan’s Pit Stop, in case you missed the microbudgeted drama at last summer’s deadCENTER Film Festival. Yen Tan’s tale is one of two Texans in transition. Gabe (Bill Heck) is a building contractor who still lives with his

OKG7 Tasty meals under $10

Jeff’s Country Cafe 3401 N. Classen Blvd.  524-2023 One of the best things about being an adult is eating whatever you want, whenever you want. Here is an old-school diner with old-school prices — and old-school, heart-clogging, hair-on-your-chest breakfast selections served all day. It’s impossible to beat the 10-oz. rib-eye steak with two eggs and


Nuclear tractor pull —Redneck geek: Edward Teller, the famous theoretical physicist known as the “father of the hydrogen bomb” for his work on the World War II-era Manhattan Project, died in 2003, but his daughter Rene told The Free Press of Kinston, N.C., in November that she had recently discovered two of her father’s precious

Search and destroy

Life on the road isn’t glamorous, but it’s what Todd Jackson and Levi Watson — the two heads behind Oklahoma City hard rock outfit Brother Gruesome — crave and work for. The duo has made a point to steadily tour outside state borders since forming in 2009, ditching creature comforts in favor of the humblest

Narco Cultura

Consider the city’s four-year homicide statistics, as shared in the opening minutes of the documentary Narco Cultura: In 2007, “just” 320 murders were committed there. In 2008, 1,623; in 2009, 2,754; and in 2010, 3,622. For perspective, that last year, the city with which Juárez literally shares a border — El Paso, Texas — had

She’s country

Libby’s Cafe is a steak-and-catfish restaurant named for co-owner Libby Adkins. It’s just south of Interstate 35’s Goldsby exit on State Highway 74. The evening we bopped down, a middle-aged group of obviously affluent riders on enormous motorcycles had just arrived. That cemented the notion that it’s a destination restaurant for the greater metro area.

Budding prospects

Recent survey data from SoonerPoll.com shows 71 percent of likely Oklahoma voters support amending the law to allow for physician-authorized patients to consume cannabis for therapeutic reasons. Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia have enacted similar measures since 1996. Other survey results show 57 percent prefer treating minor marijuana violations as noncriminal, fine-only offenses.

Fright Night 2: New Blood

Charley (the unappealing Will Payne) and his pal Evil Ed (the even more unappealing Chris Waller) take a class trip to Romania, where low budgets for such sequels go far. Says Charley will all the enthusiasm he can muster, “So … Romania, huh?,” and viewers may agree.  But then our show’s vampire, college professor Gerri
