The Joys of the Season

Free time is often in short supply as the holidays approach, but if you can make room in your busy schedule, give yourself a present and find the time to experience these delightful December treats – your future self will thank you for the memories.

Broad Scope

Bigger isn’t necessarily better, unless you’re talking about something that’s already among the best of its kind.

Local Buzz

Coffee is one of the country’s most ubiquitous beverages, but not all mugs are brewed equal. If you want a pick-me-up with personality, someplace with genuine taste and local flavor rather than a mere dispenser of hot brown liquid, you’re in luck – the metro has a strong set of heavily caffeinated gems.

In the Spotlight

As the third largest Rotary International Club in the world, the downtown Rotary Club of Oklahoma City (Club 29) might have had several female presidents in its 102-year history, yet Dr. Marion Paden is only the club’s second, the first having been the equally dynamic Meg Salyer.

A Twist on Tradition

For Christmas this year I am making red velvet waffles with maple cream and candied pecans – all the comforts of a traditional red velvet cake in a waffle form. And if you like warm chai on a cold day, then my hot buttered chai is perfect for your Christmas morning.

Holiday Recollections

We asked some Oklahoma celebrities and local movers and shakers to ponder their favorite holiday memories, and here is what they recalled.

Group Performance

Nearly 20 years ago, six local women who were friends as well as talented creators decided to start an art studio. Thus, Studio Six was established in the Paseo Arts District of Oklahoma City, where it has become a pillar of the art community.

Tastes, Traditions… and Trees

For Norman couple Jim Helberg and Steve Skidmore, a lavishly decorated Christmas tree is only the beginning; every year their celebratory forest grows a little larger, and the time-honored customs involved a little more treasured.

Can You Hear This?

I have always been something of a speaker snob, constantly trading until I hit on the sound I’m looking for. So let’s talk about getting the best sound quality out of your speakers or headphones, whether you’re using an MP3 player or iPod, car stereo or home sound system.

Tree of Life

In the Balance

In the acrobatic world of Cirque du Soleil’s Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, balance is achieved… and disparate parts add up to a whole that is simply great.

The Too-Far-Gone User’s Guide

Hot springs, reiki healing, acupuncture, even hypnosis – the year’s end is an ideal time to explore some alternative therapies for mind, body and spirit overhaul that we can use to get ourselves on the road to living better.

Civic Center’s 75th

OKC Museum of Art’s Art on Tap

12 x 12

blu VIP Party

Bike MS Finish Line Celebration

Kitchen Tour Patron Party

OU Physicians Ladies’ Night Out

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.

Bright and Bold

Rearranging the furniture in my home just happens to be a way of life around here. Not surprisingly, the most popular time to do this is the holiday season.

Operation Hanukkah

Berel Namdar and Zalman Minkowitz flew to Oklahoma City last December on a mission - with only eight days to complete it. It's a story of awareness and symbolism and generosity, but can be summed up in two words: "Menorah Mobile."

Powder Power

When you’re ready to ski, take your pick from these four of New Mexico’s most popular ski areas – you can’t go wrong with any one of them, and they’re all within a day’s drive. Each has a different personality and ambiance but all have great facilities for all ages.

Rogers County: Catoosa Has a Blue (Whale) Christmas

One of Oklahoma’s newest Christmas traditions is inspired by, if not the 21st century, at least the 20th. It celebrates what may well be the best-known structure in the state: Catoosa's grinning 80-foot-long concrete whale.

Growing Christmas

Considering the hardships involved, especially the climate, it takes more than jolliness to grow live Christmas trees in central Oklahoma. Slice goes behind the tinsel to showcase the expertise, perseverance and arduous labor of Oklahoma’s Christmas tree farmers.
