    Mrs hasn't traveled with me. Just me and the workmate.

    Of the major recommendations I can remember:

    The Mule
    Ranch
    Yokozuna
    Barrio
    Hall's
    Vito's
    Garage
    Fuzzy's is our regular after-gym spot
    Upper Crust
    Coolgreens for lunch a couple times
    Rooftop bar at Ambassador
    Iron Starr and Smoking Boar
    Little taqueria over in the hipster part of town that I don't remember the name of, fairly new

    Had an Uber driver tell us about The Collective and McNellie's that we might have to try.

    McNellie's is pretty good fwiw imo

    that is quite a solid list.

    If you want some more deep dives:

    Guatemalan food from either Cafe Antigua or Cafe Kacao are both INCREDIBLE.

    Cheevers is a nicer place with incredible food. The chicken fried steak with jalapeno cream gravy is the tits, and the blue cheese chips app is awesome (and if you want to splurge, the cinnamon/chocolate ice cream ball is a must.) incredible date spot if she comes to town

    I would avoid Collective unless you've heard better stuff lately. They are in the 'growing pains' period right now. All my reviews from friends have said, 'good concept, pretty good food, terribly slow service'. The bar at night is incredibly slow, and we tried to go one time at work and like 5/7 of the places didn't even have food available at 11:30 am.

    McNellie's is solid, their beer list is incredible. I think the food is pretty solid as well, but would go when you can have beers cuase that is the selling point.

    Yeah, guess McNellie's has the largest tap menu in town? And they do some burger deal on Tuesdays(I think?).

    Driver didn't rave about Collective; just gave us a rundown on the concept and it sounded pretty cool. The outside seating area was hopping when we drove past on the way to Barrio last night.

    I'll add Cheevers to the list. Will be glad when some cooler months roll around so I can try a couple seafood spots.

    McNellie's $3 burger night is on Wednesday at the Tulsa locations. Maybe OKC is different though idk

    yeah, nice thing is if the collective is a shit show just go across the street to Bleu Garten (outdoor bar area with food trucks lined up) or down the street to Fassler Hall (beergarden setup with good german food)

    McNellies or Tapwerks probably have the two best beer menus in town. Republic (that I mentioned earlier) also has a very solid beer list with a little more upscale food. There are two locations that are nice

    As you venture into the seafood realm, The Drake is probably your top upscale seafood stop. The rest of them are either cajun or steakhouses that have seafood

    You need to do Fassler Hall before you leave. You're missing out on that experience especially on a weekend.

    There's no need for a guy from Florida to venture into the seafood realm in a landlocked state honestly. Brent's and The Shack are two good cajun places to try.

    I grew up on the coast so I don't eat non-native fish here. You're golden with Cajun since its just a bunch of fried shit or blackened native catfish.

    Well, we're never here on a weekend and unless I get stuck because of weather, I don't foresee there being a reason I will be but we'll check it out on a week night anyhow.

    Next few weeks will be tough for me since i'll be going on vacation. Could do a weekend or friday night sometime though. We should try to get one going every month or two anyways just to hang.

    had never heard of swatek park until i googled it haha. how the heck are you staying there? that is an... ummm... 'interesting' part of town :welpseeyalater:

    you'll be able to get ubers/lyfts easily there though and are centrally located for grub/bars.

    Dinner there are many listed above, but you are very close to 23rd street and 16th street/plaza district:

    23rd - lots of good restaurants and walkable bars from dinner
    Cheevers, one of top restaurants in OKC, nicer spot
    Chick N Beer - wings and bar, pretty good
    The Drake - seafood, trendy spot
    Pizzeria Gusto - brickoven pizza, solid spot
    Bars
    Pump Bar - inside/outside, may be a bit cold but solid drinks and prices
    Ponyboy - 2 story bar, cocktails and trendy spot
    Bunker club - commie decor bar

    16th - small strip of restaurants and bars, can likewise bar hop after dinner if you want
    Empire slice house - trendy pizza spot, really good
    The mule - upscale sandwiches and drinks, really good
    Mexican radio - new taco spot
    New State burgers - new burger spot
    The Press - wide menu but good prices, great drinks and I really like the food
    Goro Ramen - one of hte top ramen spots in okc. will be cold friday night
    Bars
    The Mule
    Oak & oar - huge beer tap menu, variety
    Saint's bar - cocktail hangout spot, little bit hipster but i like it
    The press also has a bar side that stays open

    Saturday spots to watch the game:
    Republic on classen curve - huge beer menu and lots of tvs
    fassler hall - downtown german beer hall, lots of tvs, good food and beers
    The garage - multiple locations, downtown is easiest. lots of tvs, good burgers and cheap drinks which helps for long day drinking

    Beginning to think you just pretended you were gonna vacation to okc, so everyone would think you were rich and hip.
