Commentary

David Slane

Freedom of Expression


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

There are few things we value more dearly in this country than the First Amendment (that is, of course, why it was the first). Freedom of Expression, a collaborative new exhibit by abstract painter Theresa Hurt and metal sculptor Basil Martin III, celebrates this idea with its thought-provoking interpretations. The exhibition opens Friday and runs through July 26 at In Your Eye Studio & Gallery, 3005-A Paseo St. Admission is free. Call 525-2161 or visit inyoureyegallery.com.

Friday–Wednesday, ongoing

RiffTrax Live: Sharknado


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If there ever was a movie destined for RiffTrax treatment, it’s Sharknado. The brilliantly trashy film made some serious waves (get it?) upon its release last summer, and now you can laugh along with the Mystery Science Theater 3000 comedians and see it on the big screen 7 p.m. Thursday and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at AMC Quail Springs 24 with IMAX, 2501 W. Memorial Road, or Regal Spotlight Stadium 14, 1100 N. Interstate Drive, in Norman. Tickets are $9.50-$12.50. Visit fathomevents.com.

Devon Green
Ah, the perils of working with special dietary needs. It can make dining out a pain. Luckily, with restaurateurs becoming more savvy to their diners’ needs, there are a bevy of places in OKC to satisfy your craving for the foods you love without losing taste. All choices this week have been road-tested by gluten-sensitive foodies to guarantee satisfaction.

The Chickasaw Nation is one of the largest and most powerful tribes in Oklahoma, with land holdings covering 18 counties rich with both natural and cultural attractions. The tribe makes its home in the southeastern part of the state, which — unknown to many — holds a wealth of tourism opportunities.
