Them Hounds Prove Worth Hunting Down

Pat Rothfuss and the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation

The Top 10

Exhibits, soirees, a paean to the West and a three-day musical blowout – it’s a big, busy metro out there, so if you can’t make it to everything, here’s where to start.

Oscar Watch Party

An Academy-sanctioned Oscar Experience at the Will Rogers Theater provides glitz, good times and $15,000 of support for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of OKC.

Wild About the Zoo

A give and take about pageants, parenting, a penchant for animals and more with the OKC Zoo’s effervescent Tara Henson.

Bring the Heat

A quick, tasty Mexican fusion lunch or an unhurried examination of tequila’s finer points – Yucatan Taco Stand gives the Bricktown landscape an exceptional summertime stopover.

Appetite on Main Street

The future is served at Francis Tuttle. A massive, high-tech overhaul of the educational center’s School of Culinary Arts is set to give students the means to become better chefs, and diners a new address to enjoy.

Big Challenges, Wonderful Opportunities

A look at the difficulties, victories, scientific advancements and caring individuals focused on women’s health in central Oklahoma.

Small Town, Big Dreams

Remembering the way we were with a look back at the pioneering mercantile landscape in Edmond.

Boys of Summer

Sitting Pretty

The secret to enlivening outdoor living could be right behind you – lend an eye to these outstanding options for decorative, functional backyard seating.

Sweet Treat

A bit of extra care, and a secret ingredient, can transform an ordinary cake mix into a spectacular lemon-laced Mother’s Day treat via this easy recipe.

Apps to Help You Hit the Road This Summer

When you’re mobile, your life should be too. Whether you’re planning a trip or en route to adventure right now, these free Google Play apps make travel easier and more fun.

Three-Part Visual Harmony

The OKC Orchestra League, the developers of Fairview Farm and the metro’s finest designers and suppliers provide visitors with a trio of homes and one unbeatable collection of decorative splendor in the 40th annual Symphony Show House.

The Jet Set

The pilots are top-notch, safety is paramount and the service is out of this world. When it comes to traveling at the highest levels of speed, luxury and convenience, private chartered jets are the only way to fly. And at Will Rogers and Wiley Post, operators are standing by.

Slice Awards Party

Slice readers, their favorite personalities and lovers of the good life in the metro fill the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum for a community-wide celebration of the best of everything in central Oklahoma.

Junior League of Norman Gala

The JLN lets the good times roar at “Flappers and Fellas,” a ’20s-themed blowout enlivened by a taster’s affair, auctions and dancing that raked in upwards of $50,000 to bolster the league’s philanthropic work.

Arkansas, Naturally

Don’t be fooled by the sleepy Ozark setting: discerning travelers to northwest Arkansas will find themselves in hog heaven as Bentonville has developed into a haven of luxury and refinement without abandoning its cultural roots.

Heart Ball

Hundreds of guests help raise funds for cardiac health – over $800,000 – at the American Heart Association of OKC’s inspirational gala.

Shiloh Camp Party

Shiloh Camp is a weeklong getaway of sports, crafts, ministry and adventure for hundreds of inner-city youth … so the knowledge of what their nearly $18,000 contribution will enable gives this fundraiser’s guests one more reason to enjoy the evening.

Omelette Party

The OKC Museum of Art celebrates its film program and the versatile tastiness of a theme ingredient in “Lights, Camera, EGG-tion!” at the Coca-Cola Bricktown Events Center … a glittering success to the tune of over $100,000 that will fund museum exhibits and projects. That’s a wrap!

A World of Difference

On the principle that economic stability promotes political stability, the OKC nonprofit named the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women is using capitalism as a force for global progress: its Peace Through Business mentoring program encourages and trains female entrepreneurs in the war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Rwanda.

Nokia the Giant Killer

Fast, fancy and fuss-free, the new Lumia 920 seems all set to make its presence felt on the smartphone scene.

The Treasure of Spiro Mounds

In her ongoing travels through Oklahoma, author and photographer M.J. Alexander heads to LeFlore County – and through centuries of history – to explore the fact and fiction of the Native American treasure trove that was the Spiro Mounds.
