OKG7 It’s a miracle on 23rd Street


Food and Drink Features

Kelley Chambers

Not so long ago, anyone frequenting retailers along NW 23rd Street between N. Broadway Avenue and Western Avenue was shopping for a wig or pawning a television. Cheever’s Cafe was the pioneering restaurant but sat alone for many years. Things didn’t happen overnight, but more restaurateurs gave 23rd a second look and that strip of Route 66 is a diner’s dream.

Music future is bright


John D. Carlson
The first time that I encountered the genius of John Fullbright was via a radio program. The show is produced by the owner of The Blue Door, and it shares its name with the title of Joshua Boydston’s excellent cover story on the artist (“For the sake of the song”; May 7, 2014; Oklahoma Gazette).
