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.

Step Away From the Purse

One of the highlights of meeting our Hot Mamas every May is the opportunity to see parenting and motherhood through someone else’s lens.

IWFS Gala

Gathering of Angels

Casady's 65th

Addy Awards

Red Tie Night

Come Fly With Me

Heart Ball

Chetkov's Legacy

Global Inspiration, Local Design

We haven’t had to look far for style inspiration this spring, thanks to the creativity of several brilliant Oklahoma women who are emerging internationally as jewelry and accessory mavens.

In The Spotlight

City Arts Center’s executive director Mary Ann Prior

Queen of the House

She sang on “American Bandstand” with the Mamas and the Papas. She danced on “Shindig” with Sonny and Cher. She traveled and entertained the troops with Bob Hope. Long before the Flaming Lips, Vince Gill or Reba McEntire, Jody Miller was Oklahoma’s Grammy-winning darling.

The Tigers' Tale

A tragically brief career was enough to found an artistic legacy, one that continues to produce powerful, award-winning Native art. Despite persistent adversity, the Tigers have made creative inspiration a family affair.

Hit the Spot

It feels like everyone out there has a smart phone, a laptop, perhaps a netbook and an iPad. Every Internet Hotspot with free wifi is occupied by people on their devices surfing the net and maybe – just maybe – doing something productive.

Harnessing the Sun

With my smart meter reports – which let me identify and reduce my home’s highest power demands – plus a new geothermal system and better insulation, my energy bills are low.

Seven Secrets of the Seven Percent

More mysterious than the alien residents of Area 51 – they’re the legendary seven percent of people who have lost weight and actually kept it off for the long term.

The Sooner the Better

The bad news is that more than 10 percent of women in the U.S. – one out of every eight or nine – will develop breast cancer at some time during their lives. The good news is that in its early stages, breast cancer is very curable.

Survivor Instincts

When Donna Taylor holds her eight-month-old granddaughter Elizabeth and looks into the baby’s huge, expressive blue eyes, there is love and tenderness and a hint of playfulness on her face when she says, “This is my reason for staying healthy.”

Emotion and Line

The venerable Paseo gallery celebrates the month of May by presenting a duo of female artists with broadly divergent thematic specialties.

Future Sights

Humanity hasn’t yet exhausted the creative possibilities of painting and sculpting… on the other hand, why not explore media that haven’t been around for millennia?

Walk-Ins Welcome

If there’s one thing that visitors can expect from the district’s annual Paseo Arts Festival, it’s that whatever the weather, it’s going to be a gorgeous Memorial Day weekend.

A Lifesaving Shade

When hundreds of area ladies gather at the Cox Center clad in crimson, it’s not a fashion statement; it’s a show of force.

Step Into Glamour

Supporting the Work of Women program and its members’ assistance of World Neighbors’ mission to end global poverty.

Make it Merry

Dozens and dozens of artists and craftsmen from across the country form the backbone of an outdoor extravaganza of shopping, snacking, children’s recreation and creativity at its finest.

That's the News

The term “raconteur” generally connotes someone charming, dapper, debonair…

Otets Knows Best

John Preece reprises his starring role as the stubborn villager trying to resist the winds of change through force of will.

Two for the Shows

Two of history’s greatest composers deserve a magnificent concert or two… or three… or four.

Draw the Curtain

Monsieur Thibaudet is no stranger to Oklahoma City nor its Philharmonic

The Art of Animal Adoption

Sit. Stay. Art!’s third annual event will take place June 2 at the Individual Artists of Oklahoma gallery on Film Row in downtown Oklahoma City, with all proceeds benefiting Pets and People Humane Society.

A Beautiful Reality

The home is worth upward of half a million dollars. It could belong to one family for $100, and in the process, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital reaps benefits that further its service to children and families across the nation and around the world. Sounds like a dream come true.

Setting the Table

Everyone would agree that all moms – whether it’s your grandmother, aunt, daughter, sister or a friend – should be celebrated.

Let It Rain

Es Muy Caliente!

For all those showing solidarity with our neighbors to the south – or those who just like a good party – Cinco de Mayo stands as a prime point of revelry this month.

Trailblazing Tastes

Chef Niel Zambrano’s Inca Trail at 10948 N. May is serving Peruvian food in a cozy, low-key setting with abundant charm.

No Fuss Fancy

Inspiration comes from the garden for Caryn Ross, whose herb-laced recipes for chicken and shrimp salad result in fresh, fragrant perfection.

Hot Mamas 2012

It's not about physical pulchritude; it's about the beauty of lives filled with selflessness, encouragement and caring - we present the 2012 Hot Mamas.

Central Views

Three longtime leaders, on the cusp of recognition at the Dean A. McGee Awards, share their thoughts about the past, present and future of downtown OKC.

Style for the Ages

A 1925 knockout sings like never before, as over 20 top-notch designers come together to create the Symphony Show House and welcome guests to the Jazz Age Manor.

Gracious and Grand

A lavish plantation south of Baton Rouge, Nottoway has a storied history, charming accomodations and an atmosphere stylish enough to give guests the vapors.

To Boldly Go...

Bright sun, blue skies, trees and flowers in glorious bloom - nature has cranked the dial up to "vibrant," and these goodies can do the same for your life.
