Cleveland County Lifestyle | June 2018


ARTICLE STACI ELDER HENSLEY PHOTOGRAPHY RYAN LASSITER OF DEFINING IMAGE

THE ACTIVITIES AND ENVIRONMENTS MAY HAVE CHANGED SLIGHTLY OVER THE YEARS, BUT THE TRADITION OF A REGULAR “GUYS’ NIGHT” IS STILL GOING STRONG FOR MALES YOUNG AND OLD. And one of the good things about living in a college town like Norman is knowing you and your buddies have a lot of options available, both trendy and time honored. Whether it’s the good old-fashioned sports bars, the newer pubs with their craft beers, the increasingly popular cigar bars, or a whole spectrum of live music venues, there’s something in Norman to cater to all tastes, ages and temperaments. Here are a few of our favorites.

RESTAURANT ROUND UP

01. Looking for a good steak and an upscale atmosphere? Scratch Kitchen & Cocktails, 132 W. Main, offers the best in fine dining and exotic cocktails, along with a selection of over 125 types of whiskey, served in an eclectic atmosphere featuring modern art. Happy hours with $5 whiskey-based Old-Fashioned and Manhattans are a big hit with the guys, who can also chow on popular items like pulled pork nachos. Tiki Tuesdays feature a different exotic cocktail weekly, and a weekend brunch also offers live music.

HOT SPOT

(CON TI N U ED)

02. Whether you’re a music lover, biker, family man or all three, you’ll find something to love at Hollywood Corners. The historic gasoline station/general store at 4712 N. Porter has been transformed into one of the coolest hangouts in Oklahoma. The exterior opens into a rustic restaurant/bar, with an open-air patio and concert stage in back. Of special interest are Thursday hot rod nights, where guys can gather to admire each other’s vehicles. Biker nights are held the first and third Wednesday of each month.

03. Equal parts cigar bar, adult hangout and family restaurant, Pub W offers a great place to gather with the guys for signature craft cocktails and beers. Popular with young professionals, the modern American pub offers traditional fare, along with “Scotch and Cigar” dinners, Wednesday Wine Nights and Thursday Pint Nights, where you can sample from an ever-changing roster of more than 100 beers, most locally crafted. Located at 3720 W. Robinson, inside Brookhaven Village, Pub W also features big-screen televisions, pool tables and video games.

04. The first thing you'll get at O’Connell’s Irish Pub & Grille is a “heapin’ helpin’” of good old Sooner Spirit. This iconic Norman establishment has long been a popular guy hangout/watering hole, especially for fans of Sooner athletics. With 14 big-screen televisions and a convenient Campus Corner location, 769 Asp Ave., O’Connell’s is a great place to knock back a beer with fellow OU fans, enjoy outstanding pub fare, exercise your pipes during Wednesday’s karaoke night, or challenge your brain on Thursday’s trivia nights.

T h e R e a l E stat e Developer P.B. Odom Jr., President of P.B. Odom Construction Co. P.B. Odom, 89, oversees the management of 150 commercial locations and works to develop and improve existing land holdings. He has built and developed many homes, subdivisions and shopping centers that helped create a thriving South Oklahoma City. He has served on BancFirst’s Corporate board for 19 years, and has participated in medical emergency flights for victims of terrible accidents. PHILOSOPHY ON LIFE: It takes many good people, friends and family to accomplish anything meaningful in life. One man can’t do a great deal on his own. It's helpful cooperation that builds anything of substance.  WHY HE'S PROUD OF HIS SON: My son has shown great enthusiasm and zeal in working for our company. He makes decisions based on compassion and understanding. He exemplifies the same honesty and integrity that my father taught me and now that I have taught him.

WITH SINGER/SONGWRITER MICHAEL BENDURE ARTICLE JERRI CULPEPPER | PHOTOGRAPHY MATTHEW STRATTON

Q. WHEN DID YOU FIRST KNOW YOU WANTED TO PERFORM? A. I think, in a weird way, I’ve never really viewed myself as a performer. I grew up singing in choir and playing hand bells in church, and playing trumpet in band and orchestra, so I was comfortable playing music in front of others. Those were, to me, less about performing and more about being a musical conduit. As a songwriter now, I feel like I have a responsibility to let the music come out through me, so making music feels less like performing and more like fulfilling my responsibilities as a musician.

GOOD FINANCIAL HABITS Investors surveyed who reported being happiest overall also say they are less troubled by financial worries than their peers. They’re less concerned about issues like having enough money for retirement or unexpected medical expenses. What’s their secret? They practice healthy financial habits like having a financial plan in place, meeting short-term and long-term goals, and discussing finances with their significant other. Working with a trusted professional familiar with your financial situation to develop a personalized plan driven by your goals can help build financial confidence in good times and bad. When those plans are combined with good financial habits, investors can move toward goals including buying a home, retirement, travel or paying for education. Talk with your Morgan Stanley Financial Advisor to build your plans today.

GOT TIME?

GIVING BACK

BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF OKLAHOMA – NORMAN

WHY NOT BECOME A 'BIG BROTHER'? GROWING UP IS DIFFICULT THESE DAYS FOR ALMOST EVERYONE. But for those living in households with no or insufficient income, a history of family problems (such as mental illness), an incarcerated parent, or any number of other challenging situations, the struggle to succeed can seem insurmountable. Without positive role models, it’s all too easy for negative patterns to repeat, keeping children from reaching their full potential. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma steps up to provide role models and friendships to those youth that might otherwise have nowhere to turn. I spoke with Blossom Crews, area director, Norman and Shawnee Big Brothers Big Sisters, about their organization and the need for more mentors, especially male ones. YOUR MISSION? Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Our vision is that all children achieve success in life. WHEN WERE YOU FOUNDED? Big Brothers Big Sisters of America was founded in 1904; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma was founded in 2006 with the merger of five separate Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies into one statewide organization. Our Norman office has been active since 1969. WHAT PROGRAMS AND SERVICES DO YOU OFFER? BBBSOK provides one-to-one mentoring services through two avenues. In our school-/sitebased program, Bigs provide Littles individualized time and attention on a regular basis at the

Little’s school or after-school program like Boys & Girls Club. Bigs and Littles meet weekly during

school hours and utilize school resources such as the computer lab, library, gym, classroom or

playground. The Big-Little relationship promotes a positive school experience for the child: good

bbbsofoklahoma/?ref=br_rs

attendance, positive peer and adult relationships, a positive attitude and academic achievement. Ideally, matches continue from one school year to the next. During school breaks, the volunteer and child are encouraged to maintain their relationship through emails, letters or phone calls.

42

Cleveland County Lifestyle | June 2018


In our community-based program, Bigs offer Littles the same individualized attention on a consistent basis, typically 3-4 times per month for two to three hours each time out in the community, sharing activities they mutually enjoy. They develop a trusting, caring relationship that provides an outlet for the Little and a model of how to handle everyday challenges. Over time, our Littles gain confidence, nurture new skills and competencies, and develop an enhanced capacity to care for others. WHAT AREAS DO YOU SERVE? Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma is a statewide organization with offices in Norman, Oklahoma City, Shawnee, Stillwater, Ponca City, Bartlesville and Tulsa. The children and youth we serve are typically from low-income, single-parent/guardian households who, without BBBSOK services, may never have access to positive and transformational experiences with a mentor. A growing percent of the children we serve (43%) are children of incarcerated parents. WHAT UNIQUE NEEDS DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION FACE? Many services provided by state agencies have been cut in an attempt to balance the budget, leaving many Oklahoma children without needed services. As a result, the demand for mentoring program services continues to increase. Without our effective mentoring program, many of Oklahoma’s vulnerable youth may succumb to complex challenges,

including

poverty,

parental

incarceration and increased vulnerability for

SMALL TOWN FEEL IN THE BIG CITY!

incarceration, underage drug/alcohol abuse, early parenting, poor academic performance and dropping out of school. We have an ongoing need for mentors to match with our Waiting Littles. The waiting list for Big Brothers is especially long. In early May, of the 64 Littles waiting to be matched, 51 were boys. HOW CAN PEOPLE HELP? Anyone over 18 can apply to be a mentor.
