Best it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
We think this year’s Best of OKC winners deserve recognition beyond last week’s issue, so we decided to throw a party, and invite you, too! Come celebrate with Oklahoma Gazette from 6:45 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill in Lower Bricktown. We’ve roped in The Damn Quails to provide live music, with singer-songwriter Gabriel Kelley opening. Admission is free, because we love our readers!
