Oklahoma City Remembers

April 19, 1995 Murrah Building bombing

April 19th, 1995. It’s one of those days that sticks in your soul forever; especially for those of us who have called Oklahoma City home for at least a couple of decades. We all remember vividly where we were and what we were doing when it happened. Most of us felt the concussion, no matter […]

Ever Trade a Bar Tab for a 6' Pig?

This guy has! It’s always fun to hear the stories of the who, what, why, where and how of the various attractions, former and present, around the Oklahoma City metro. Do you have memories of Hollie’s Drive-in or Hollie’s ’50s & ’60s Club & Diner? Tell us about them! [where: Oklahoma City, OK]

Bricktown Area – Now and Then

Steve Lackmeyer of the Oklahoman just put together a very cool video about the history of Bricktown and the surrounding area. Call me a geek, but I kind of enjoy hearing about what used to be and how we got to where we are, as well as where we could be going. Enjoy! [where: Oklahoma […]
