Volcano Sushi

For a date night, a birthday party, or a girl’s lunch out with friends, Volcano Sushi Bar & Hibachi is by far my favorite local sushi spot with rolls that are flavorful, creative, and generous with the fish. The service is excellent, the prices average, and the presentation is out of this world. The very […]

The Wedge and a Walk

The teens are at a movie at Bricktown‘s Harken Theater and this taxi-mom needs to kill a couple hours? Not a problem. I’d been wanting to check out a new place anyway and find a few more buffalo. Today I headed to The Wedge Pizzeria to eat pizza in a place literally shaped like the […]

Himalayas Indian Restaurant

Visible from the highway nestled among random shops in an uninteresting Moore strip mall, Himalayas isn’t exactly eye catching, but it’s one of those “don’t judge a book by its cover” sort of places that you have to go inside. It’s clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. The courteous staff quickly usher away used dishes so […]

Scratch in Norman

What: Scratch Restaurant Where: 132 W. Main, Norman, OK 73069 Website: Worth it?  Absolutely.   My husband asked me if there was any place that I wanted to go to that I hadn’t tried yet and I immediately thought of Scratch Kitchen & Cocktails in downtown Norman.

Avengers and Back Door BBQ

Tifnotes: Back Door BBQ ranks up there as one of the best BBQ places I’ve been to here or anywhere. That may sound like an overinflated rating (perhaps I’m still on a brisket high), but the combination of delicious food, sauce choices, rustic decor, reasonable prices, and cleanliness (ever notice how BBQ joints are always sticky?) […]

The Wichita “Hills” (Not Mountains) and a Meersburger

Tifnotes:  The Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge is a free, family-friendly outdoor location for any season with wild herds of Longhorn cattle and buffalo, prairie dogs, and lizards. Mt.

Sooner Dairy Lunch

Tifnotes: Unchanged since its beginning in 1954, the Sooner Dairy Lunch is a tiny old fashioned drive-in style burger place that serves up delicious fries, burgers, hot dogs, and the best milkshake I’ve had so far in OKC. Really. It’s a small family run business. Co-owner Randy McHughes is the son of the man who […]

OKC Festival of the Arts

Scroll down for Tiffnotes. Ignore the giant mud puddle. That’s going to be a building eventually. Now, it’s only really visible from this view. When on the ground perusing art venders below at this year’s Festival of the Arts, I didn’t even notice it. See that strip of white squares? Each one hosts four juried […]
