OKG eat: Viva la salsa

Liven up the obligatory chips and dip with these fresh local salsas.


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner. Why not liven up your table with one of these fresh, locally made salsas? They’re great if you like to feel superior to your fellow revelers with what you can handle or you just like to give those corn chips some pep. Find these at places like the Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City Farmers Market and Urban Agrarian.

Two enterprising former restaurant owners looked around Oklahoma City’s restaurant industry and thought it could be a lot greener. Chris Buerger and his partner, Brian DeShazo, took notice of the fact that there is no infrastructure to recycle in area restaurants.

Kynd duds

A local company creates clothing and accessories using bamboo, a truly sustainable resource.


Devon Green
At Twisted Root Gallery, 3012 N. Walker Ave., in the historic Paseo Arts District of Oklahoma City, tucked into a space next to several paintings on display for sale, is an unassuming display of sunglasses that looks like it might be another piece of art itself. The ingenious frames with reflective, opaque lenses are so striking that they are at home there.

Old wood, new tricks

A local artist breathes new life into materials previously thought to be useless.


Visual Arts

Sometimes it really is a case of the old adage, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” For Paul Bagley’s art, you could say, “One man’s discarded materials become another man’s priceless work of art.”

It’s easy being green

Local farmers are making it easier than ever to eat fresh in OKC.


Food and Drink Features

Devon Green
There was a time not too long ago when it was difficult to find out where your food came from. More specifically, we all know where food comes from, but not in the sense that we have any inkling of the person who picked the potato or carrot on our plates. It is a fairly safe assumption that quite a few people do not know what garlic looks like growing in the ground. A surprising number of Americans do not know the provenance of their food.
