Meet Virginia

When I think of Virginia, I think of the early eastern settlements, especially sophisticated Williamsburg. I was still thinking that way when I headed to Roanoke, little realizing that, for many years, it was on the Virginia equivalent of the western frontier. It’s come a long way, baby!

Down the Hatch

There’s nothing more exciting in college athletics than the iconic OU vs. Texas game. It’s a game that brings families, fans and foodies together every year. Slice’s resident foodie likes to support her team with a tailgate party any sports fan would be proud to serve.

OMRF’s “241” Wine Festival and Golf Tournament

Sharing the Gift

In 1964, James T. Bialac bought a painting. Over 40 years later, the Arizona lawyer’s private collection of Native American art was among the greatest in existence.

Caped Crusade

The mean streets of Gotham City – and their iconic shadowy protector – come to the Chesapeake Arena October 10-14 in the stunt-studded, visually spectacular stage show “Batman Live.”

Creature Features

Sure, axe-wielding, demon-possessed, undead were-zombie ghouls are scary in theory, but there’s a special kind of creepiness in the concept of having our humdrum lives interrupted by a faceful of Nature at its most malevolent.

Fashion Forecast

A conversation with Liberté boutique owner Danielle Keogh and store manager Eden Turrentine

The Big Show

Most vocal compositions can be performed with four voices, although eight allows for division of parts and 16 produces a richer sound.

INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe Patron Party

Home Team

A stay-at-home mom of two, Shea Adamson’s foray into design was born out of frustration.

Trends to Savor

The good news about the restaurant business in general is that it is becoming more diverse and sophisticated. The better news for local food lovers is that Oklahoma City’s dining scene is thriving.

In the Spotlight

They’re the self-described Odd Couple of sports and the epitome of a love-hate relationship – as much with each other as with their listeners every weekday afternoon and game days on WWLS Radio, The Sports Animal.

Setting the Table

When I think of October, I have visions of black and orange Halloween decorations, dark maroon and dried brown leaves, a warm hearth and rich comfort food.

Clear Excellence

Orchids are among nature’s most spectacular showpieces, producing prismatic splendor from near-black to brilliant white and a thousand varied and variegated shades between, but not even the most dedicated botanical breeder has ever produced a transparent one.

Tour de Palate

Step by Step by Step

The Wow Factor

Fully 20 of the region’s most prominent creative organizations receive funding through the work of Allied Arts, and uncounted thousands of Oklahomans benefit aesthetically and spiritually from that central agency.

Where History Lives

To heighten awareness and promote preservation of Oklahoma City’s architectural history, and to ensure the protection of our enduring cultural landmarks for years to come. Those are pretty good reasons to participate in a venerable event that offers its own ample rewards: one of the city’s most elegant and storied neighborhoods reopens its doors from noon to 5pm October 6-7 in the 46th annual Heritage Hills Historic Homes and Gardens Tour.

Sure Shot

A small military force can rout a much larger one, though it helps to have some tactical advantage.

Concept Home Preview Party

Jordan/Watson 80th Birthday Bash

Target Treatment

As a surgeon who has had a particular interest in cancer research over the last 50 years, I’m continuously impressed with the medical advances that scientists make.

New Hope in 3D

One out of eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and yet breast cancers found early and at a small size have a survival rate of 97 percent.

Bloomer Sooner

Urban Archaeologist

Beneath the streets of downtown Oklahoma City, decades-old rumors tell of a labyrinth of secret Chinese tunnels. The gossip of generations implies they were carved out by frontier-era Chinese who migrated into Oklahoma territory while constructing our nation’s early railroads.

Road to Renaissance

Strolling down the quiet, narrow lane of Carey Place on a perfect fall morning, there are no cars passing. The architecture and layout of this neighborhood remains perfectly preserved due to the diligence of its residents, and this cool, cloudless Saturday could just as easily be 1937…

Crossing the Great Divide

It is among the most bitterly contested rivalries – and the most enjoyable – in all of sports.

The Search for Karma, Oklahoma

For years I’d looked at the dot on the map and figured it was a magical place, a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered. It sat modestly in the far southern border of the state, past Durant. It had a good vibe. How could it not?

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.

What Are the Odds?

Coincidences happen every day, but when they’re big enough and improbable enough, and represent something wonderful enough, they start to border on… miraculous. And this one’s even on ice.

Home-Cooked Inspiration

Some of the finest examples of culinary creativity to be found in Nichols Hills – not food nor drink, but the expertly designed kitchens in which they are made.

The Magic Is Back

Long before she was Sandy in “Grease,” or the spandex-wearing hottie with the headband in the “Physical” video, Olivia Newton-John was first and foremost a singer.

Next Steps

Now that the Supreme Court has upheld most provisions of President Obama’s sweeping healthcare reform plan known as the Affordable Care Act, it’s time to start focusing on what this law means to you.
