    I have some friends out in OKC (sick brag about having friends, right?) and they tell me the locals rave about this place. Great apps, large portions and killer desserts.

    The Ranch, mahogany's, cafe 7, the Hamilton, Cheever’s.

    Others might shit on Ted’s Cafe Escondido but I’m a big fan. Get the atomic salsa.

    Okc food scene has exploded over the past few years. I haven’t lived or really visited in several years so I know I’m missing a bunch.

    I enjoy Smitty’s Garage or Irma’s for a burger.

    Fassler Hall for beers and German food.

    But seriously go Edna’s and have about 9 lunchboxes.

    Probably nothing terribly exciting. Will probably be a fair number of working dinners, at least early on in the project.

    I’ll be home every weekend but the wife and kid may come out and stay one weekend just because she’ll take any opportunity to travel, even if it’s somewhere she’d never opt for willingly. She wants to see the bombing memorial so any recommendations on touristy stuff would be appreciated.

    Otherwise, I’ve already found a climbing gym I’ll hit up a couple nights a week and then just dinners with the coworker that will be traveling with me.

    All the following are less than 3 miles from the Village:

    Start here: Chisholm Creek restaurants and a Top Golf
    https://chisholmcreek.com/directory?field_directory_category_tid=3

    -Tucker’s is the best burger in the city.

    -The Ranch or Mahogany is good for steak on the Northside of OKC (though if you want to go for a little drive Cattleman’s Steakhouse is an American institution).

    -Whataburger, Torchy’s, Raising Canes, and Chipotle are all within a half mile stretch of Pennsylvania Street. If you’re grabbing something quick

    If you want to drive a little farther (10 minute Uber ride south):
    -Bleu Garten and Fassler Hall for drinks/social hour stuff.

    -R&J Supper Club (my favorite restaurant in OKC), Packards, The Jones Assembly, and Broadway 10 for fine dining.

    -Prairie, Roughtail, Stonecloud and Anthem are great local breweries to visit.

    Anything else just DM me. I’m a proud OKC resident so I refuse to let you go somewhere lame.

    The Ranch as others have stated. Cattleman's just to check it off the list. The Mule for sandwiches and good beer.

    When wes tegg came into town for a night a couple years ago I took him to a Bricktown bar first. I immediately remembered why I never go to that area of town. I don’t think I’ve been to Bricktown since.

    Today you all learned that Jigga doesn't understand geography, as he thinks Tulsa = OKC and can't understand 100 miles is not hangout distance.

    Sorry Jigga, you aren't pretty enough for that drive.

    Fusiontegra where are you staying? Guys got you a good start, maybe I can help by doubling up on recs. I work downtown and live up north off the turnpike, so little of both

    Chisholm creek area is a great start.

    Firebirds is great for drinks
    Chalk is a great sports bar
    Little further away is Chimaga which is a cool little Mexican/Asian Fusion place
    Ranch is great for steaks. Nice place, but you can still wear jeans.
    Metro wine bar is not quite fine dining, but it’s quiet and a nice place with variety.
    Hmm.
    If you’d booked a few months ago, you could’ve gone to Nonesuch (was rated the top new restaurant in the United States in 2018). Pretty cool place if you can get in.
    Big fan of Deep Duece Grill, but people may not go there anymore... might be aging myself.
    That should get you started.
    If you’d like to meet up for a beer, I can’t. Enjoy!

    Jigga was working for a week in Tulsa. He invited both me and dahldennsull to Tulsa to hang out. It would have been round trip on a weeknight from OKC for Dahl and Ada for me. I was prepared to make the trip but we had make up tee ball games that night.

    I can recommend a few hotels in the area, my in-laws have tried pretty much all of them out over the years when visiting. Shoot me a DM if you want.

    Near the village, I'm just 2 miles north of there, solid spot.
    North OKC/Edmond/Village
    Chisolm Creek has been covered, solid spots up there. Yokazuna (sushi/asian), Chalk (sportsbar), Republic (gastropub w/ tons of beers)
    The Shack - cajun food
    Redrock Canyon Grill - lakeside restaurant with good food
    Hacienda Tacos/Fuzzy's - both good taco spots, Fuzzy's more of a chain around this region.
    Vito's is awesome italian nearby, small shop with awesome owners
    The Ranch is amazing steakhouse in that neighborhood
    Osteria is a new italian spot with a top chef
    The Garage/S&B Burgers - two good burger spots

    Central OKC neighborhoods (Paseo District/Plaza District/Uptown/Downtown Area)
    Jones Assembly - great food, also a concert venue, may check the schedule for stuff to do. Top hangout spot
    Cheever's cafe - everything here is good.
    Cafe Kacao/Cafe Antigua - two peruvian/latin american spots that are incredible. Good brunch/lunch spots, top coffee selections
    Nic's Grill - if you want the best burger you'll ever eat, convince a client to leave work early and go down to the tiny spot on Pennsylvania Ave. seriously, lots of press online about this place
    Tucker's Onion burgers - other top onion burger spot that's easier to get in/out (also one up north by turnpike)
    The Drake - seafood
    Pizzaria Gusto
    Empire Slice house - trendy pizza place
    Goro Ramen
    The Mule
    Hall's Pizza Kitchen
    OSO Paseo
    Picasso Cafe
    Paseo Grill
    Barrios Cafe - one of my favorite mex spots

    If you want bars let me know and I can transition to that.

    I assume you found Elevation up north off the turnpike. Live right in that area, so can recommend more stuff up here if needed.

    For fam, pending how old your kid is:
    OKC Zoo - really popular spot, top gorilla/elephant stops
    Science Museum Oklahoma - massive science stop, tons for every age, my boys (and I) have a blast everytime we go.
    Riversport OKC - tons of small watersport activities, whitewater rafting course, huge playground and ropes course
    Brickopolis - downtown activity center with a little of everything (Heydey also fits this bill).

    perhaps if you want more family info, send some details of age/what they like and I can help.

    Hadn't seen Elevation. Threshhold is the place about 10 minutes from the hotel I'll be frequenting. I'm also going to have to make at least one trip to what are evidently some grain silos that someone has turned into rock climbing gym. Which, I have to say, is pretty goddamn awesome.

    threshold is what I was thinking of, had something else on my mind. That's up in my neck of the woods.

    The silos are awesome, they've got climbs inside and outside. Downtown. No AC though, so if you're coming soon, the inside lanes may be HOT. Could find a nicer day and do some of hte outside ones. I'll be honest, I haven't been in years, so no idea what it's like these days.

    Which hotel did you settle on? gives me a better sense of your area.
