Skinnier cocktails

Bars around the metro are starting to offer skinnier versions of sugary favorites, but some cocktails have always been skinny.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
You know “skinny” is a popular trend when Cheesecake Factory adds menu items under that category. The chain best known for massive portions and the signature dessert in its name added low(er) calorie cocktails at the beginning of 2011, most notably a skinny Mojito and a margarita, classic drinks with a week’s supply of sugar in the recipe.

Prost!

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.

Tea school

Forget the bag. Here’s what you need to know about drinking tea the way it’s meant.


Food and Drink Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Not all teas are created equal. Take that stuff in the little paper satchel. (You know the stuff — it usually comes with a tag that rhymes with “mipton.”) Kristy Jennings, owner of T, an Urban Teahouse, 7518 N. May, said the category in the tea industry for it is “dust.” Tempting!

Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
Thailand and Italy are more than 5,000 miles apart, but Jana’s Restaurant brings the cuisines of both countries together in one room.

Sweet victory

With a pirate theme of ‘The Bucs Stop Here,’ the recent Oklahoma Restaurant Association convention held hidden treasures.


Food and Drink Features

Carol Smaglinski
In a CBS “Sunday Morning” interview last year, 67-year-old Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones showed up, and I swear he had eyeliner painted on his lower eyelids.

Down-home downtown

Home cooking goes chic at Sage in Deep Deuce.


Restaurant Reviews

Joshua Boydston
For metro residents looking for the homey nature of the suburbs with the excitement of city life, there are few districts more suitable than the Deep Deuce neighborhood, which has been in the midst of a renaissance.

Celebrity seal

Famous names get in on the alcohol business with branded beer, liquor and more.


Food and Drink Features

Shawn Lealos
When most people head into a liquor store, they know exactly what they want. But there are times when they may notice something different. It might be a stand-up cutout of Snoop Dogg or a picture on the wall of Ludacris — it’s the sight of a familiar face that piques an interest.
