ON THE COVER: The Chesapeake Boathouse casts a dramatic nighttime glow across the newly revitalized Oklahoma River and serves as the visual anchor to OKC’s Boathouse District. 4 | OKCCONVENTIONER.COM | S/S 2013

As publishers of the Oklahoma City Conventioner, allow us to extend our welcome to OKC! We hope we can provide a glimpse of the diversity Oklahoma has to offer. We have everything you would expect in a major city...world class hotels, professional sports, full gaming casinos and race track, a zoo, historic museums, live music and theater. What you might not expect will be the taste of a uniquely rich cultural heritage formed from the red earth so abundant in Oklahoma. Historic Bricktown and the Western Heritage Museums will take you back to the Land Run Era of the Wild West via walking trails, water taxi, or on a river cruise up the rechanneled Oklahoma River. The Classen Curve area offers upscale dining and shopping against a uniquely modern backdrop. As OKC residents and business owners for over 36 years, we are eager to show you “our town.” We know you will enjoy the casual atmosphere and friendly people of OKC and find the dining, entertainment and shopping second to none.

Sincerely, The Matlock Family

Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum The Memorial features a museum and monument erected in remembrance of the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. Open 24/7, the Outdoor Symbolic Memorial is a powerful place as night falls and the Field of Empty Chairs begin to glow. Take some time to walk the grounds and contemplate how hope rose from such a horrific event.

DINING

Chef’s Room featuring Nonna’s great foods and Painted Door gift items.

Nonna’s Euro-American Ristorante and Bar occupies 22,000 square feet of upscale space in a repurposed turn of the century warehouse. It’s location in the heart of Bricktown is within walking distance of the Cox Convention Center and surrounding hotels and provides an excellent starting point for a night on the town or before a Thunder game.

Upstairs, the Purple Bar offers a change in atmosphere under the cool glow of locally produced mouth-blown glass. Expertly crafted cocktails, beers and an extensive wine list compliment a special bar menu. Half-priced appetizers during the Purple Bar’s daily happy hour and live music on Friday and Saturday evenings make it the perfect spot to close out your day.

One of the many things we love about Nonna’s is their uncompromising commitment to quality. Owner Avis Scaramucci is tireless in her efforts to obtain first rate ingredients for the menu. Case in point: Cedar Spring Farms, a state-of-the-art hydroponic growing facility dedicated to keeping the freshest tomatoes, peppers, herbs and microgreens on Nonna’s plates.

You’re sure to find something you love at Nonna’s, whether it’s Lunch or Dinner, a sweet treat from Nonna’s Bakery, Private Dining Rooms for 1 to 100 guests, Purple Bar drinks and music, or 2nd Floor Patio Dining offering the best view Bricktown! An added bonus...be sure to visit Painted Door, the perfect store for the perfect gift!

The menu showcases these ingredients with honest takes on American and European classics. The seafood selections and certified Angus steaks cooked over applewood flame pair well with Nonna’s award-winning wine list. The breadth of the menu is impressive, including many gluten free and vegetarian options.

NORMAN LOCAL

(see our ad on pg 40)

LOCAL is operated by three sisters with a passion for Oklahoma food and farmers. Their dedication to preparing delicious, locally-sourced and sustainable American cuisine shines through brilliantly on the plate. The rotating seasonal menu is always excellent…serious food not taken too seriously. LOCAL also has private dining space and on-site child care.  Don’t miss happy hour Tue-Fri 4-7pm in the bar: TIP $3 small plates, beer and cocktail specials. 2262 W. Main St. // American 405.928.5600 // eatatlocal.com

Custom glasswork from local artists adorns the impressive dining room at LOCAL.

Only 20 minutes south of downtown OKC, Norman retains an eclectic and cosmopolitan feel thanks to the erudite influence of the University of Oklahoma. The presence of so many students means that after a day of meetings, there are a multitude of interesting options for your evening. Many head to Campus Corner for its vibrant concentration of restaurants, bars and live music venues. Or try the renovated downtown along Main St. where you’ll find an eccentric collection of locally owned galleries, pubs and restaurants. If you crave higher stakes action, Riverwind Casino (see pg. 21) should be your destination. Norman has many hidden gems. We recommend that you start exploring with the list below.

FEATURED DINING & NIGHTLIFE Crimson & Whipped Cream This wonderful little bakery and coffee shop on Campus Corner hits the spot every time. The staff is always attentive and pleasant, the WiFi is fast, the tunes are great and the coffee and baked goods are out of this world.

LOCAL ARTIST SPOTLIGHT

ROSHNI ROBERT The Artist:

Roshni Robert is originally from Washington state but now lives and works in Norman, OK. Her series of work featured next month at LOCAL reflects observational specimen illustrations of Oklahoma flora and fauna. “I look out the window. I look for movement, a flicker of color, the movement of a branch. These are the inspirations for my work- the colors and the shapes. This is my third spring in Norman, Oklahoma and each year I am overwhelmed by the speed with which things explode out of their dormancy here. I am caught up with it and feel my own rush to create work that represents my curiosity and eagerness to meet every bird and every leaf arriving in my yard. I have been painting in a hurry too, two finished paintings a week on average. My color palate has changed from dark blue, dark green and dark brown to soft blue and pink and pale yellow- sunrise colors. Making this work is my chance to present Oklahoma as a beautiful place, as my place. It is an offering.”

Current Exhibition: Roshni’s work is on exhibit May 10 through July 7 in The Gallery space at LOCAL (2262 W. Main St., Norman, eatatlocal.com) and can be viewed during their normal business hours, Tue-Thu 11am-10pm, Fri-Sat 11am-12am, Sun 10am-3pm.

Craig Swan’s “Sun Dial” on Main St. in Norman casts moving scissor-tailed flycatcher shadows on the surrounding sidewalk.
