Hoist the Colors

Whatever the cognoscenti may say about the trendy hues for summer, Edmond spends this time of year faithfully following the bold, vibrant color scheme that’s been in fashion for 236 years: three cheers for the red, white and blue.

In The Spotlight

This fall, the John F. Kennedy Community Service Award will be presented to two individuals whose public service has been an inspiration to many. In anticipation, we sat down with the former governor to learn more.

This & That

A dash of this, a jigger of that - a brief collection of trivia, miscellany, current events, tidbits of popular culture and other ephemera that we think are cool.

Break on Through

Entrusting your livelihood to your art is a big, daunting step‚ Eric Wright kept himself pent up in a workaday cubicle for 18 years before taking the leap.

Third Time’s the Charm?

In my need to have stuff to feed my media habit, I was online and purchased the new iPad 3 the day it shipped from Apple. This is my take on it.

Frozen Favorite

Full-flavored and exquisitely rich, gelato is a delicious remedy for hot weather, and with this recipe from Caryn Ross you can whip up bliss-inducing batches of your own. Fantastico!

Beat the Heat

Summertime’s here; you need something to keep you feeling – and looking – cool. Streetside café to poolside chaise, these choice products will carry you through the season in style.

The Bold and the Musical

Neither rain nor wind nor a bunch of windy rain can long delay Brave Combo from their appointed visit.

Ring Down the Sun

Now, amid the shades of night, in this park artists alight. To their finest works will we, which by some shall purchased be; and the revelry there measured ever shall by us be treasured. Forsooth.

Power Coupling

Two musical masters make a thoroughly compelling case to visit the Zoo Amphitheatre.

Calm, Clean & Clear

It is easy bein’ clean: the spa, suites and amenities at the carefully planned getaway on Fort Gibson Lake called The Canebrake make for a uniquely relaxing, restorative treat.

A Delicate Subject

Sadly fragile and easily damaged; though fundamentally similar in composition, capable of astonishing individual variety… and breathtaking, transcendent beauty.

Winds of Change

Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park’s glorious production of “The Tempest” under the myriad stars.

Make the Most of It

Doctors spend an average of eight to 15 minutes per appointment with their patients. This usually allows for at least two brief updates about symptoms and a short discussion during the visit. But by planning ahead for what to bring to the appointment and what to ask, patients can have a strong influence on the level of feedback and care they receive.

Fur Your Health

Any pet lover will tell you that having a dog or a cat is a rewarding experience, but those rewards may be more tangible than just warm fuzzy feelings. Research discoveries are pointing to physiological reasons why owning a pet is good for your health.

The Sales of a Lifetime

Call them “Garage Sales on Steroids.” Sure, you’re still browsing through other people’s stuff, but unlike their garage-based counterparts, estate sales are becoming big business.

Serve Your Stage

As we age, our bodies require different nutrients that serve as building blocks for us. It’s important to identify these key nutrients at different stages of your life so you can promote good health within your body for the future.

The Variety Show

Fuel for Life

Food and energy, energy and food – the two are inextricably entwined.

Allied Arts Celebration

Angels and Friends

Follow That Muse

Kenny McKenna was happy to make a career out of his creative drive, spending two decades playing in a rhythm and blues band. But the longer he spent on tour, the more he came to realize that he was in the wrong line of art...

50 Penn Place

Hoops for Babies

A Spring Soiree

Liberté and the Pursuit of Happiness

With an open, airy space packed with star designers’ lines, Classen Curve boutique Liberté offers OKC ladies the freedom to choose some simply stunning fashions.

Enjoy Your Stay

Your vacation should be relaxing and enjoyable. By following these simple steps ahead of time, you can have a financially responsible and hassle-free trip.

The Big Read Brunch

Fondue Fandango

Choices

Stay and Get It

The farm-to-fork concept – the deceptively complex idea of a restaurant featuring locally sourced ingredients – has gained momentum in recent years, with several examples in the metro. One of the newest and best is, appropriately enough, called Local, at 2262 W. Main in Norman, tucked into the Normandy Creek Shopping Center.

Home for Fashion

When the average person thinks of fashion, they’re not likely to think of Oklahoma City as a hub. But, as I have learned, one does not have to live on the coast to have serious talent or to earn a good living from this highly competitive industry. The fashion design talent pool is deep and strong here in OKC. I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with two young, talented locals who are producing some amazing fashion goods – all available right here in town.

Live al Fresco

In clement weather, our backyards, front porches, decks, docks and swimming pools are all extensions of our living room. Much like Independence Day, summer is best celebrated outside.

Setting the Table

Since 2012 is both an election year and an Olympic year, this calls for an all-out, all-inclusive 4th of July celebration! There’s no better time to get your family and friends under the same roof (or sky), to celebrate America.

The Future of Skin Care

When the Saints Dermatology Center of Excellence opens to patients in January, the 9,100-square-foot facility at 9720 N. Broadway will mark the fulfillment of one simple, yet ambitions goal. “We wanted to create a group of dermatologists who can provide the best service in this region,” says medical director Renee Grau, M.D. “We want to be an all-encompassing, comprehensive health care center for dermatology.”

A Dazzling Display

Drink Your Dessert!

The writer and philosopher H.L. Mencken referred to the martini as “the only American invention as perfect as the sonnet.”
