Prime real estate

After purchasing the entire building, the owner of The Paramount OKC plans to expand its film-related offerings.


Features

Devon Green
Oklahoma City’s Film Row district — once an area that housed vacant downtown businesses and no residential property — has undergone a serious transformation in the past few years. Until recently, there was little left of the area that used to be a bustling film exchange of the early 20th century.

Broadway choppers

Construction starts on a pair of new restaurant and bar concepts in Midtown.


Food and Drink Features

Devon Green
Jeff Dixon and Aaron Soward were eating lunch and throwing around the idea that they could combine their experience and strike out for themselves. They had many combined years of experience, and both came up in the Hal Smith Restaurant Group restaurants around the Oklahoma City metro area. Dixon was the manager who opened Upper Crust Wood Fired Pizza at Classen Curve, and Soward was the general manager at Redrock Canyon Grill, 9221 Lake Hefner Parkway. Both men were ready for a change and felt confident that they were ready to tackle their own restaurant concept.

OKG Eat: Gay bar, anyone?


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green
You could say this bar is nestled in the Habana Inn, but “nestled” is far too subtle a word to describe the industrialgrade light and sound that happen in one of the oldest dance clubs in the district.

Farmers markets offerings in June

Dustin Green from 10 Acre Woods in Norman fills us in on what’s new at farmers markets in June.


Food and Drink Features

Devon Green
Now that we’re finally out of the awkwardness of asking, “Are we sure it’s spring?” and we have fairly leapt straight into temperatures upward of 90 degrees, local farmers are working around the clock to get the goodies of early summer out of the ground and to the local markets.

OKG eat: Wine country


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

According to the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department, the state boasts nearly 50 wineries. That’s enough to keep you busy touring for a while. We’ve rounded up a few that are closer to the metro. You can brag to your friends that you spent the weekend touring wine country and didn’t even have to book a plane ticket.

OKG eat: Just desserts


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green
Life is uncertain; eat dessert first.

You know what’s great about being a grown-up? Getting to go to bed whenever you want. You know what else is great? Getting to eat whenever and whatever you want. Go ahead; no one’s going to stop you. Waltz into one of these local restaurants and order dessert first. In this crazy world, there are few certainties. These are sure things.

They did not suck

Vampire Weekend played to a sold-out crowd at Diamond Ballroom — and the band didn’t disappoint.


Music

Devon Green
There wasn’t anyone obviously over the age of 40, but that’s to be expected for a show by a bunch of fresh-faced college students who still look like they might get carded for beer. Vampire Weekend has spent the last year and a half winning hearts and minds with its latest offering, Modern Vampires of the City, a significant departure from its previous albums.
