Viva tequila!

The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce hosts a food and spirits tasting tonight.

The Greater Oklahoma City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is getting metro residents fired up for all things Latino with Viva Sabor, a food, wine and spirits tasting from 6 to 10 p.m. tonight at Istvan Gallery.

The event will include a tequila tasting.

Tequila and I have an on-and-off relationship, starting with one memorable night in Amsterdam that kicked off with tequila, and one Ghouls Gone Wild parade that ended in tequila and orange face paint smeared all over my bathroom floor where I face-planted. Still, I love me a perfect margarita with olives.

Tickets to tonight’s Viva Sabor are $30. Look for Charles Martin’s article on tequila and the event soon in the Gazette.

Whiskey business

It takes a sure hand to handle aggressive whiskeys when mixing cocktails, but a little knowledge can help tame even the boldest bourbons.

Food and Drink Features

Charles Martin
Vodka and light rums are no-brainers when in a mixing mood because the neutral spirits can be thrown into just about any kind of drink and quickly disappear under a sea of soda and juice.

Direct from the beer gardens in Germany comes Oktoberfest, a marathon celebration that inspired a beloved beer style.

Food and Drink Features

Charles Martin
There are parties, and then there are parties. When Prince Ludwig of Bavaria decided to throw an all-out beer bash following his wedding in 1810, he announced the rager would go on until the last man dropped. This inspired a festival so epic, it kicked off an annual 16-day tradition that survives to this day named Oktoberfest.

War games

You say you love combat simulation games? Well, put down the controller and pick up a fake rifle, soldier!


Charles Martin
In a gutted-out industrial building west of Stockyards City, a squad of men crouched in the shadows, their rifles trained on a stairwell. Soft footsteps approached; someone shouted “Contact!” and was answered with a swarm of gunfire. The first casualty stumbled backward and retreated, blood dripping from his nose.
