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.

OKG eat: Rooftops


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

What’s better than a patio? A rooftop patio, where you can enjoy all of the pleasures of outdoor dining. The temps are finally rising to make these spots ideal for the coming weeks before we careen headlong into blazing temperatures. Grab a cocktail or an appetizer and enjoy the view.

Studies in fast food

Sonic Corp. breaks ground on a test kitchen at its Bricktown headquarters.


Food and Drink Features

Devon Green
Sonic Corp. is one of those companies that many Oklahoma City natives forget is local — until, that is, one ventures down to the Bricktown Canal and sees the company’s huge corporate headquarters at 300 Johnny Bench Drive.

OKG eat: Have a (snow) ball this summer


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

Nothing is better when you’re roasting in the sun than a flavored ball of snow, with sugary-sweet syrup poured over finely shaved and packed ice. There are some serious snow cone stands in OKC. Cool your taste buds when the temperatures get to right below “blast furnace.”

OKG eat: Let somebody else do the cooking


Devon Green

Unless they’re planning a wedding, most people don’t often think of caterers. But when it comes to feeding the hungry multitudes, these guys and gals are a gift from heaven. So for your next big to-do or intimate gathering, why not let the professionals handle the hard part?
