Bright Whites, Big City

With its crisp, clean look, white plays a starring role in home furnishings, fashion and finishing touches.

Time Passages

App-y Days Are Here Again

When it comes to appetizers, wine is a fickle mistress. What you serve is directly tied to the wine you will be drinking. After much discussion with a local chef on what to pair with any type of wine, he taught me some easy dishes that are perfect to serve at your next gathering.

Reign Man

Music fans will be getting the royal treatment in Shawnee August 18, and that’s not merely wordplay based on the guest performer’s regal name: the incomparable B.B. King really truly is the King of the Blues.

TRMG Law Firm Show House Party

Two for the Show

When the 2012 News 9 Concept Homes open for tours on August 9, they will afford Oklahomans an opportunity to experience not one, but two, exquisite luxury homes showcasing the latest design and building ideas.

Step Right This Way

Lyric Theatre’s spectacular summer lineup of “Bye Bye Birdie,” “Sweet Charity” and “Call Me Madam” has had a common link besides Broadway excellence: all three shows were highlights in the exceptional, illustrious career of two-time Tony winner Chita Rivera. To cap off its season with a flourish, Lyric welcomes Rivera herself to OKC to share an intimate evening of music from “West Side Story,” “Chicago” and many more of her most celebrated musicals.

Look! Up in the Sky!

The Oklahoma City SkyDance Bridge, officially unveiled in April, is already gaining nationwide acclaim.

Long Live the King

It was a Tuesday, overcast and humid. The radio in Mom’s kitchen was set to the AM dial – WKY 930, to be exact. The news hit the air a little past three. “This just in from the Associated Press: Elvis Presley has died at his home in Memphis.”

OU Medical Center Edmond Ladies’ Night

Reach for the Sun

A new day has dawned in the creative annals of one of the world’s oldest societies, and purveyors of a centuries-old art form are emerging into the light. City Arts Center is proud to host the touring exhibition “Soaring Voices: Recent Ceramics by Women From Japan,” a collection of transcendently beautiful creations by a heretofore under-acknowledged demographic.

Sit. Stay. Art!

Time to Train

What’s the number one excuse for not working out? Survey says: “lack of time.” Sure, we’re all busy managing our different worlds and rushing around here and there, but I can assure you that there is someone even busier than you are who is working out right now.

Striking a Spark

Flint is an outstanding addition to downtown and if Oklahoma City is lucky, it will anchor the Colcord for some time to come.

Western Zest

The Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita

Every Meal a Celebration

Andrew Black has no pictures of himself before the age of 21. His family never owned a camera. He grew up with his grandmother and brothers on 30 acres in the “deep country” of Jamaica. It was a life of subsistence, the family eating what they grew: sugar cane and avocados, mangos and breadfruit.

Oklahoma @ the Movies

Full Speed Ahead

Though both have gone far in their lives and artistic careers – Michelle is an international photographer, Wayne the passionate voice of The Flaming Lips – Oklahoma City was and remains their beloved home. Their energy and (ahem) drive in helping to revitalize their neighborhood near OKC’s Plaza District has earned the Coynes recognition in the District’s 2012 Urban Pioneer Awards. The annual honor is presented for their ongoing efforts in strengthening the community, supporting its resurgence and drawing attention to its thriving culture… thus blazing a trail into a vibrant, creative future.

National Cowboy Museum’s Chuck Wagon Gathering

Annie Oakley Society Luncheon

A Contender of Note

It looks like Samsung is out to steal some thunder from Apple and Amazon with the introduction of the Galaxy Note device.

True Brew

Though beer is nearly as old as civilization itself, Oklahoma is filled to the brim with evidence that the art of its creation is still deliciously rewarding to explore.

Grape Expectations

Winemaking has put down roots in Oklahoma, but producing it is no easy task – so Andrew Snyder’s labor of love is helping to cultivate the future of the state’s wine industry.

Wine and Palette

If white wine complements lighter dishes and red wine balances bolder dishes, what wine best suits creating fine art?

What We’re Talking About...

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.

Home Brew

Brad Ferguson has an affinity for astronomy, trains, the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams… and beer.

In The Spotlight

We last admired [wine/life/each other] enthusiasts Michel Buthion and Stan Stack in a Beaujolais Nouveau-induced embrace on the cover of Nichols Hills News magazine.

From the Vine

In Vino Veritas, and the glad truth is that our wine industry is growing ever stronger. While agreeing that the best is yet to come, a panel of experts selects the cream of the current Oklahoma crop.

Don Quixote Redux

Don Quixote is frequently cited as “the first modern novel.” I hadn’t read it when I was invited to explore the Spain of Don Quixote, so I thought I’d better do some catching up.

Gentlemen's Getaways

It is perhaps as primal and visceral a need as any in humanity: the need to have private space, to get away, to escape real life and be immersed in a world of one’s own making.

Setting the Table

This month Slice tackles the wineries and breweries of our great state... so in that “spirit” (ha ha!) we’ve set our table with that in mind. Using the same white Vietri plate as the foundation, we’ve swapped accessories to create four settings.
