I’ve never met an ice cream I didn’t like. OKC has been home for almost 10 years, and I’ve worked with Keep It Local for about 2 years. I love being a part of a growing, thriving city with such a deep sense of community. Some of the best people in the world are here!
I live in the constant tenstion of wanting to buy the perfect gift for my friends and family and being a procrastinator. Until recently, this meant that everyone just got iTunes gift cards. No one was disappointed, but no one commented on my thoughtfulness, either. Now, with the recent growth of our fair city, I've found a handful of shops I can swing by on my way to a party and find the perfect gift.
Do you want to see true fear in the eyes of an Oklahoman? Tell him you’re a vegetarian. True, vegetarianism is slowly making its way into mainstream Oklahoma restaurants, but anyone who has eaten a plant-based diet knows the frustration of being stuck asking for a salad *without the chicken or bacon vinaigrette* and paying $10 for a plate of lettuce and shredded carrots. These are just a few of my favorite places to get a substantial, delicious meal without freaking out your meat-eating friends. There’s plenty for everyone at these restaurants. Enjoy!
