Beer and wine

Welcome spring with wines and beers fit for the season.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
“Drink pink” is the rallying cry of spring for many wine lovers. The big reds of the fall and winter are retired in favor of lighterbodied wines for warmer weather, and the more patio-friendly the better. While white wines, especially sweeter ones, dominate the spring and summer, many wine lovers still prefer dry, red wines.

Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer

OKG 7 eat | Grease? Onions? Yes, please.


Food and Drink Features

Louis Fowler

Legend has it that the first onion burgers were created in El Reno during the Great Depression by enterprising burger-flippers looking for ways to stretch increasingly scarce meat. That costcutting measure still lives and breathes today. While El Reno might be the home of the onion burger, there are plenty other metro eateries that offer the delightful fare.
