Thunder up!

To say that the arrival more than two years ago of the Thunder to Oklahoma City has changed the city’s landscape is an understatement somewhat akin to saying the Broadway Extension may experience a slight slowing of traffic around the evening rush hour.

Every foot matters

OKC must place more value on land use and street edges


Blair Humphreys
For years, we have been trying to make downtown Oklahoma City a great place for people. This mission is reaffirmed and restated using a variety of catchphrases — “pedestrian-friendly,” “thriving urban center,” “24/7 community” — that all ultimately mean the same thing: a downtown crowded with people.

Seeking shelter

Dr. Strangebrew

It may not replace that perfect porter, but beer cocktails abound in town. You just need to stop being pretentious.

Food and Drink Features

Charles Martin
