OKG7 Eat: Winning in Windsor


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
Situated west of Interstate 44 to the Bethany line on the NW 23rd Street corridor, the Windsor District is the latest metro initiative designed to show off the best culture Oklahoma City has to offer. After a city investment of $13.2 million dollars through the 2013-2016 Streetscape Project, Windsor has fast become OKC’s International District.

OKG7 Eat: Snack to the future


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
Too bad time machines don’t exist. Imagine hanging out in diners, inventing rock ’n’ roll and making out with your own mother at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance. Wait... Yeah. The last two things will always be impossible. In the meantime, those classic ’50s diners still light up our main streets. Pile the family into the DeLorean.

Faithful friends

When a beloved pet is called home for the last time, Ever Faithful sends it off with dignity and respect.


News

Louis Fowler
The debilitating and devastating emotional pain that comes with the death of a four-legged best friend is something that only a loving pet-owner can fully understand.

OKG7 Eat: Fish dishes


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to assume that when it comes to seafood, Oklahoma is not the place to satiate that constant craving for fish dishes. However, with over 50,000 miles of shoreline along lakes and ponds that are stocked with edible species like bass, walleye and catfish in this great state, many metro eateries offer a wide variety of aquatic delicacies — from Southern-fried to elegantly served — that will surprise even the pickiest pescatarian.

OKG7 Eat: Best of SW 29th Street


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler

Situated in the heart of Oklahoma City’s vibrant — and, sadly, often ignored — Latino community, SW 29th Street is a mecca for diners looking for the most authentic Mexican, Central- and South-American eats. Filled with carnicerias, panaderias and taco trucks, it can be daunting to choose just one. Here is OKG7’s beginner’s guide to the multicultural variety of this historic strip.

Willis — The Understanding


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
From the opening R&B samples and powerful horn section that triumphantly blasts the arrival of a new hero on the scene, Willis’ The Understanding perfectly captures the innercity swagger of a blaxploitation movie icon.

OKG7 Tasty meals under $10


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
Having wasted hundreds (thousands?) of dollars on junk that’ll be replaced by the latest upgrades in a year, forced resolutions to “not eat out as much” have become something of a mantra for the budget-conscious in 2014. However, a completely filling dinner doesn’t have to empty your wallet. In fact, you can get any of these delicious dishes for one measly Alexander Hamilton.
