I spent 48 hours in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
United has great direct flights and I was there in no time. Friday night we dinner at what was billed as “The place to see and be seen”, Cafe Nova . We started by ordering a little bit of everything off of the menu. The appetizer platter had scallops, ravioli, tater tots and a lump crab quesidilla. My 2 girlfriends loved the ravioli, I could have lived without it. My scallop was very chewy, while another girlfriend had one that was gummy. The main course was a decent caprese salad. Specialty drinks were listed at the bottom of the menu and me and C. indulged in a Gold #5. (Vodka, champagne and orange juice.) Funny thing, after the first drink, the waitress took our glasses and never asked if we would like another one. Towards the end of the meal, we decided on another and had to approach her to put in the order.
After we stopped into Flip’s.(“The most happening spot in OKC.”)
Thirty seconds later we walked back out. We ended up at a nice, quaint wine bar called Bin 73. With 50 or so selections of wine by the glass, we of course went with a martini. D. was getting tired, so after a quick drop off, C. and I headed downtown to the hippest part of the city, Brick Town. Brick is the entertainment district and features restaurants, bars, nightclubs, movie theater, hotels and shopping in a (surprise!) brick stone motif. Our first stop was Club Albee. We didn;t stay long, then headed over to the top off one of the tallest buildings, Skyy Bar. After paying a (laughable) $10.00 cover, we did a walk threw and settled in to a table by the door. Alcohol samplers came by with “The older brother” of Khlua liquor, and we listed to rap and hip-hop circa 2002. We ended the night at the Rok Bar. On the way back we noticed the crosses on the downtown commercial buildings. The bible belt was really living up to it’s name.
The next day: shopping, Elephant Bar, baby shower, Saturn Bar and Grill, Maker’s Cigar Bar and Bolero. It was a nice trip and I look forward to my next trip in March!
