Food and Drink Features
If Rachel Cope has her way, the Plaza District will soon become the hub for food, culture and community.
You can do a lot of cool things with a can: Kick it, smash it, drink delicious beverages out of it. But have you ever built a canned food structure? That’s what teams of architects, contractors, engineers and designers are invited to do at CANstruction, a nonprofit competition benefitting City Rescue Mission of Oklahoma City. The event is from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday at Bricktown Chevy Events Center, 425 E. California Ave. Admission is one can of food. Visit canstruction.org.
Home-brewed beers? Check. Signature dishes from some of OKC’s best restaurants? Check. Viva la vida and head to Viva Sabor! II, an event celebrating the culinary diversity of Oklahoma. The party is 6-10 p.m. Friday at Myriad Botanical Gardens, 301 W. Reno Ave. Tickets are $35. Call 616-5031 or visit okchispanicchamber.org.
