Fancy a slice?

Local pizzerias whip up more than just special sauce.


Food and Drink Features

Christina Nihira
Most everyone loves pizza. In fact, it is the only food special enough to get its very own section in most phone books.

Spanking new

Yep, these seven are fired up and ready to go with flavorpacked food flying out of the kitchens. Step aside, everyone, there are plenty of new places to try. Go get ’em!


OKG7 Dining

Carol Smaglinski
In what used to be a former chimney shop, owners Juan Manuel Diaz and his wife, Solorro Garcia, opened their first Mexican restaurant in late June. Filled with family members, its enchiladas are pure Mexican, not Tex-Mex, they say. To the delight of its many regular customers, the tortillas are handmade on the spot.

Donald Glover: Weirdo

The ‘Community’ star graduates to head of his comedic class.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Donald Glover is more than just an actor on NBC's sitcom Community, and Weirdo, his stand-up special shot in New York City, is more than just rape and poop jokes, although many of both exist.

Casting the Runes

Rent a 'Rune' with a view.


Horror

Rod Lott
I remember vividly when I first read "Casting the Runes," one of several suspense classics to pour from the pen of M.R. James, the master of the ghost story whose supernatural bent became a huge influence on H.P. Lovecraft. Just because the short story is old (1911) doesn't mean it wasn't chilling to read, and so it is with this 1979 presentation, an episode of the UK's ITV Playhouse anthology series.

Beauty Day

Before ‘Jackass,’ there was Cap’n Video.


Documentary

Rod Lott
Don’t feel stupid: I didn’t know who Ralph Zavadil was, either. After all, we can’t be faulted for living in Oklahoma City instead of Ontario, Canada. Ultimately, it makes no difference, because Beauty Day, the documentary about the man, is a fun viewing nonetheless. That’s because there’s something about watching stunts of bodily harm that holds universal appeal.

Captain America: Collector’s Edition

He was the big screen’s real ‘First Avenger.’


Action

Rod Lott
Not long after Batman changed Hollywood in the summer of 1989, every studio wanted to have the next comics-based blockbuster. I remember visiting Penn Square Mall’s multiplex (as I did often back then) and seeing a poster for Captain America. The one-sheet was comprised of little more than a close-up of Cap’s iconic shield and a promise to arrive next summer.
