Happy Feet

Sure, leather boots are still in style for manly footwear, but this time of year many Oklahoma City Men say the flip-flop is the way to go.

Butterflies are Free

Maine-ly Spectacular

The Maine coast has a great host of amenities to enjoy, whether your appetites run toward sailing, shopping or anything in between… just save plenty of room for lobster.

The French Connection

Some of the greatest art in human history was produced in the 19th century, and much of the greatest art created during that exalted period was a product of la Belle France.

A Touch of Spice

The recent opening of Hollie’s Flatiron Steakhouse in Moore, the latest concept of the Hal Smith Restaurant Group, is refreshing, delicious and a welcome addition.

Western Heritage

ONE Event

Cleats and Cocktails

Cinema Paradiso

Hollywood, Oklahoma? Oscar-winning producer Gray Frederickson is among those nurturing growth in the local film industry, and his fully equipped classes at OCCC are fertile ground for success.

The Great Race

Don’t blink. It only takes a fraction of a second, but even an instant’s distraction can be critical when the objects of scrutiny are moving over 260 miles per hour.

Garden State

Gathering seeds for your own future ideas is the work of but a single day’s journey: simply take the 29th annual Nichols Hills Garden Tour.

Can't Stop the Music

As surely as its namesake month arrives on the calendar, Norman residents have the opportunity to enjoy the giants of the genre at Jazz in June.

Redbud's 30th

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.

Pliner Signing

Dream a Little Dream

Many people dream of finding success and fame – some make it happen. Through talent, timing and making the right connections, an OKC secretary became a silver screen star.

Red Carpet Ready

Glamour comes easiest to those who are prepared; with these suggestions and a healthy dose of confidence, you’ll always be ready for your close-up.

The Long Goodbye

Handsome young rock and roll star Conrad Birdie has been called up, and he’s shipping off to join the Army – but not just yet.

Cool Dads 2012

Their professions are aspirational – doctor, lawyer, fireman, minister and musician – but what unites them is their common desire to be there for their children and for others. Presenting Slice’s 2012 Cool Dads.

The Silver Horde

The Sooner State’s own cinematic legacy is the focus of the Oklahoma History Center’s new “Oklahoma @ the Movies” exhibit.

Allied Artini

The Heart of the Hearth

Bread is life. For several millennia, bread has formed much of the basis of the human diet. Bread is an ancient art form and a nutritional staple, but it is more – it is a cornerstone of culture, of society.

To Live

What’s it all about, really? Parsing the meaning of life has kept philosophers – and the rest of us – busy since the dawn of humanity, and one of the only things we’re sure about is that there’s no single maxim or slogan that serves as a universal answer.

Winners of the West

Excellence tends to beget excellence: for over 50 years, the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum has avowedly been America’s premier institution of Western history, culture and art – so when it assembles 100 of the nation’s finest contemporary Western artists for a show, the event should bring collectors and aficionados at a gallop.

Saints Babies

Dragon's Breadth

Sitting in a doctor’s examining room, with a paper gown strategically draped and a cold draft up your backside, is not one of life’s most pleasant experiences. But it’s a piece of cake compared to sitting in that same examining room and hearing a doctor nonchalantly say he needs to test you for cancer – ASAP.

Tactile Composition

The 34th annual Fiberworks exhibit in Oklahoma City is an opportunity to experience the finest the state has to offer.

The Game Plan

From documentaries to comedy shorts, Harkins Theatre to the Myriad Gardens, deadCENTER Film Festival is a big deal. This comprehensive schedule should help viewers make the most of it.

A Summer Place

One of the more exciting developments to hit Oklahoma City in recent years is Classen Curve, and the new location of Café 501 at 5825 N.W. Grand Boulevard has lent a distinctly urbane and cosmopolitan air to an already enticing spot.

In The Spotlight

His Oklahoma roots start at the very beginning. Born in Norman, Oklahoma, Nyambi Nyambi identifies himself first as a huge Sooner fan and later as an actor. Nyambi currently plays the role of Samuel the waiter on the CBS sitcom “Mike and Molly.”

Out of the Past

There is no, repeat, no cause for alarm. Yes, a creature from China is about to enter Oklahoma. Yes, it’s carnivorous. Yes, it’s about 30 feet long and has shown a tendency to eat the nastiest of its neighbors. But (and this is a big but) it’s been dead for about 160 million years.

Setting the Table

Besides June bugs and warmer temperatures, this beautiful month also brings summer weddings. An intimate dinner for a couples shower was the springboard for this month’s feature. We’ve moved it outside and onto the court by bringing the table, chairs and all the essentials for a celebration of love. The invitations boldly state the theme: Game... Set... It’s a Match!

Rescue "Dawn"

On October 17, 1920, the silent film “The Daughter of Dawn” flickers onto the screen of the College Theater in Los Angeles.

Raise Your Voice

The sky hangs like a dome over the land – “The Dome of Heaven,” according to award-winning poet, playwright and novelist Diane Glancy, whose film by that name tells the intimate story of a Vici family.

Actor, Producer, Woodworker, Consumer of Burgers

We caught up to Nick Offerman on tour to talk about “Somebody Up There Likes Me,” his Oklahoma connections (he is married to Megan Mullally) and a mysterious suitcase that appears throughout his new movie.

Carnivores Rejoice!

This June Caryn Ross shares her favorite rib recipe. It’s guaranteed to make you King of the Barbecue! So simple to make and virtually impossible to mess up!

Coming Into Focus

One might argue that a good story is a good story, but the ability to tell a story well is a gift, and a compelling storyteller is just as important as the story itself.
