Slide into Home

Home Run Sliders pitches out sliders, sides and a ketchup bar to end all ketchup bars.


Food and Drink Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Just a few doors down from the University of Central Oklahoma Jazz Lab and across from a green space in Edmond, Home Run Sliders is a new concept from the Deep Fork Group that is hoping to hit it out of the park with its gourmet twist on American classics. (There ends the baseball puns. Promise.)

Summer lovin’

Dresses and shorts help you beat the heat


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
You know what’s the opposite of fun? The AC breaking. On Memorial Day weekend. It took me about two hot seconds before I slipped into full-on Depression-Era lady mode, fanning myself while I soaked my feet in cold water. It was truly pathetic.

Swim fan

Pick a pool, any pool. Metro aquatic centers and swimming holes help you cool off when the weather heats up.

Summer school

Head back to school without the hassle of tests or report cards. Plus, we’re pretty sure Japanese Bookbinding wasn’t offered where you matriculated.


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
School is fun. No, really. Even if you weren’t Sally Study as a kid, going back — especially to these classes — can be enriching.

Vino adventure

Sure, you could be content sipping that glass of wine. But why stop there?


Food and Drink Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Wine can be so much more than a simple drink. Across the metro and around the state, businesses and wineries are letting Oklahomans make wine-drinking an adventure, not just a meal accompaniment.

Painted ladies

Lookin' pretty in the city


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
My makeup is what you’d call minimal. And that’s being generous. The only products I am religious about applying are moisturizer, mascara and eyebrow powder.

To the pool!

It's pool season, so get your gear!


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Whether you’re ready or not, pool season is here. Done hyperventilating? Yeah, it kind of snuck up on me, too. Damn you, pool season, you get me every time.

Sail away

Break out the Sperry Top-Siders! Local classes teach Oklahomans how to tack and jibe. (Those are sailing terms, landlubbers.)


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
The wind snapping at the sails, the prow sluicing the waves and Hefner Parkway just over there.

In the garden

Gardening gear for the talented and not-so-talented


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Let’s tally: In the three years I’ve attempted to garden/control/plead with my backyard, I have killed: one weeping mulberry; two pine trees; three bushes of indeterminate origin; and hundreds of annuals.
