BY DAVE CATHEY For LOOKatOKC

While recent news in the restaurant industry has centered around disruption, one local group has quietly gone about expanding a new concept into three locations with a fourth in the offing. Aly Cunningham and Shannon Roper are the principal partners behind Happy Plate Concepts, the partnership responsible for Sunnyside Diner, a modern diner conceived on the idea that if you offer folks the food they want the best way you know how and serve it in a retro-chic, hospitable setting, the only thing left to do to become a pillar of the community is give back. It’s working for them. By this time next year, the simple modern diner that opened in the summer of 2016 will boast four locations.

SETTING Before you get into the menu at Sunnyside, it’s impossible not to be struck by the distinctive dining spaces. You might not know everyone’s name when you walk through the door, but you will certainly feel at home. The original, 916 NW 6, with its blue, white and yellow color palate feels like it sprang from a seaside port town in the

early 1960s. The second, 824 SW 89, has the orange, yellow and avocado green spirit of my mother’s kitchen in 1974. The third location, 9148 N MacArthur Blvd., is somewhere in between, and plans for Edmond show it could be the most ambitious project yet. Each has a counter like any selfrespecting coffee shop would, but you can also order a beer or cocktail, including the Southern Sunset or Bloody Saturday — a lovely convergence of yesterday and today. You won’t be sure if the time machine has taken you to your parents first home or the diner where they ate, but by the time you get seated you’ll probably already have a cup of hot coffee.

DINING Where Sunnyside differs from many moms of yesteryear comes from the pantry and fridge. My mom made liberal use of newfangled boxed dinners and soup-can supported casseroles when I was growing up in the 1970s and 1980s, but you’ll find no such shortcuts at Sunnyside. They make everything from scratch, including jelly good enough for store SEE SUNNYSIDE, 5

CONTINUED FROM 4 shelves. That’s the purview of kitchen manager Daniel Garcia, who was the multiunit kitchen leader for S&B’s Burger Joint before joining Happy Plate at the start of the year. But the recipes themselves come from Roper, who Cunningham calls “director of food, dreamer of dishes and executive chef.” Appetites from Twiggy to Cookie Monster are welcome. I’ve enjoyed the simple Toad in the Hole and Avocado Toast for a quick fuel stop and been sent to the hammock by the Chicken-Fried Steak that appears to come from a mammal larger a bovine. (Could it really be chicken-fried hippo?) “The idea behind this concept is pretty simple,” Cunningham explained. “We just wanted to represent the foods we grew up with made from scratch and made to order.” With that in mind, the partners put diner fare in their sites and came up with a menu teeming familiar favorites: pancakes, chicken-fried steak, biscuits and gravy, omelets, burgers, sandwiches and salads. The familiarity doesn’t end with the names, which is a plus. Nothing has been reinvented, just made true to the culinary credo, which also includes fresh, and local when possible, ingredients. What makes typical diner fare typical is often more about diners using the same food distributor than it does with the foods we remember. That’s not to say Sunnyside’s fare will take you back to your mom’s table, but you can rest assured someone’s mother inspired either the gravy, the meatloaf or both.

COMMUNITY Sunnyside employs an executive chef for quality control, but cooks in each kitchen are given license to customize any order. Sunnyside Diner co-owner Aly Cunningham shows the dining area at the south Oklahoma City location.

SUNNYSIDE CONTINUED FROM 5 “With our south store, it’s been an adjustment because diners have slightly different expectations,” Cunningham said. “We work really hard to make sure our waitstaff can help diners navigate the menu and sort of make it their own. We just want to fit into the community.” When Cunningham says things like that, it’s not just an ingratiating line. She and Roper have committed their business to giving back through programs like Other Options, for whom the downtown store has acted as home base for producing Cookie’s Thanksgiving. Each location includes a Pine Pantry from which necessity bags are made available to those in need. “This was right in line with our mission to give back to our community,” Cunningham said. “The pantry not only offers items for those in need, it’s easy way for our guests to give back, too.”

GROWTH Both Roper and Cunningham have spent their fair share of time in the kitchen during their careers, and neither are afraid to jump in today. That explains why the growing local chain’s dedication to empowering its kitchen staff. While Roper was the author of the original S&B’s Burger Joint menu, he also learned plenty about opening restaurants in the early part of his career working for Garfield’s.

Sunnyside Diner’s south Oklahoma City location has a Pine Pantry food closet where people with too much can donate to those in need. Add to that the experience of expanding S&B’s Burger Joints into other markets from Lawton to Carbondale, Illinois, and you it’s easy to see why expanding Sunnyside has come naturally to the partners. The south location barely had time to come up for air before Cunningham and Roper had swooped up the former Lola’s Cafe. That popular breakfast spot was converted into the third Sunnyside location in April. And now that location No. 3 is up and running, plans were unveiled for a fourth location in Edmond where Van’s Bakery stood for 44 years. The new location at the corner of Second and Broadway won’t be ready until later this year or early next year

as ownership seeks approval from multiple boards and the Edmond City Council to make changes that include a 490-square-foot build-out on the north side of the building, a patio and dining space in the former auto bays. Cunningham said they’re aiming to open in the fall as construction could start as early as if August if they can get plans processed through the various committees and the Edmond City Council on schedule. But that’s not all. Cunningham said she and Roper are ahead of schedule on their five-year plan. That’s good news for rural communities, which are part of the 10-year plan. Both grew up in smaller communities, Roper in El Reno and Cunningham in Enid. Aly said they’d love to open Sunnysides in their hometowns some day, but they don’t force growth, they calculate it. “We aren’t trying to just open Sunnyside Diners everywhere,” she said. “We want to fulfill the need for home-cooked, high quality, exceptional service and affordable options in an area.” Cunningham said the 10-year plan not only includes potential growth into markets like Shawnee and Piedmont, but to add more concepts to Happy Plate’s collection of restaurants, which includes the Original S&B’s. And who knows, perhaps some day, Cunningham surmises, Happy Plate might venture into other industries. But that’s for tomorrow.

McClintock Saloon ‘steaks’ its claim Stockyards City proves big enough for two chop houses BY DAVE CATHEY | For LOOKatOKC Once upon a time in the West, the arrival of McClintock Saloon and Chophouse, 2227 Exchange Ave., might’ve prompted a showdown. That’s because owners Michel Buthion and Lindsey Ocker chose to open their homage to the Old West and upscale steakhouse within a stone’s throw of Cattlemen’s Steakhouse, perhaps the state’s most iconic restaurant. But how could Cattlemen’s owner Dick Stubbs be mad when his partner David Egan introduced old buddy Buthion to Ocker, their longtime neighbor? Whether Stockyards City is big enough for two steakhouses won’t be determined by quick-draw. Instead,

friend Buthion, whose La Baguette Bistro on N May Avenue has been among the city’s most successful restaurants since it opened in the early 1990s. La Baguette is a showcase of Buthion’s French heritage with a terrific menu presented by his brother, Alain, and a wonderful market. Pictures of the butcher shop the boys grew up above adorn the walls. In the apartment seen in those pictures, little Michel Buthion watched movies on television every Sunday. “It was always a Western,” Buthion said beneath a black cowboy hat he says transforms him from Michel to Stockyards Mitch. “Old West culture is still very popular in France.” With those memories embedded in his subconscious, a trip to Robert’s Western World in Nashville, which combines a Western-wear store with a saloon and restaurant, inspired Buthion to visit McClintock Boots. Ocker took that as indication Buthion wanted to drink some whiskey in the office. “I went into the office, and we drank half a bottle of whiskey,” Buthion said. “When I left we were partners.” Buthion’s original idea was to convert the boot shop into a simple saloon to pay homage to Oklahoma Old West heritage, but Ocker had something bigger in mind.

McClintock brings a modern counterpoint to the nostalgic wiles of Cattlemen’s Steakhouse to Stockyards City thanks to the expansive dining room, which includes plentiful options for large groups and private parties. That’s because Ocker made a deal to take over two spaces next door. Part of that deal meant waiting for tenants to leave, which meant it would take about 18 months to complete the project. But the wait meant Ocker could outfit the entryway with a spectacular original stained-glass Coca-Cola sign from Chicago, a 50-foot bar, hardwood floors, booths upholstered in leather and velvet, an armada of chandeliers, sculptures of

Helen of Troy and Hercules, and a stage for live music. Those inspired to buy a round of drinks for the bar are welcome to ring a bell only accessible by a small staircase that remains roped off. The end result is a larger-than-life homage to the Western heritage of Oklahoma with plenty of whimsy. Waxed mustaches aren’t uncommon behind the bar, and general manager Michael Harper wears his bolo tie with pride. Bar manager Cory Bast looks like a barkeep but talks like a curator from a whiskey museum. He oversees a program that boasts more than 200 styles of whiskey, and he is ready, willing and able to tell you anything you need to know about them. Among them is a Woodford Reserve stamped “Stockyards Mitch,” which was the results of Buthion’s passion for whiskey and a trip to Kentucky. Beer, cocktails and plenty of tequila, mescal, vodka and gin also are available. Executive chef Ethan Williams features a chophouse menu with all the steaks, chops and seafood you expect: two sizes of filet, 14-ounce strip and rib-eye, a monster ribeye for two, chicken-fried steak and quail, pork chops, rack of lamb, fried chicken, oysters and shrimp cocktail. For snacks, I love the pickled vegetables with deviled eggs. Caesar salad is a great way to precede a steak, and the Hasselback potatoes are my favorite dance partner. That said, I would not say no to the grilled asparagus, macaroni and cheese, fried onions or french fries. For lunch, McClintock offers a luncheon steak. A tasty set of sandwiches also make McClintock an attractive lunch option for downtowners with sandwiches that come in Monte Cristo, Grandma’s Meatloaf, Club, and Grilled Salmon. The menu also features four burger iterations. The steaks are big, and the flavors are bold, and dinner diners in jeans and cowboy boots are as common as those in coat and tie. The restaurant opens for brunch at 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, and at 11 a.m. the rest of the week. It closes at 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday with a late menu running 10 p.m. to midnight.

KIM VENTRELLA

BOOKS

Oklahoma author says children can teach adults about reading BY KEN RAYMOND For LOOKatOKC

W

hen she was in second grade, Kim Ventrella won a writing contest with “a creepy story about taxidermy.” That was enough to convince her, even at such a young age, that she wanted her career to focus on books and writing. Her life carried her in some unique directions: She worked as a live-in staff member at a women’s shelter in New Orleans, volunteered with the Peace Corps in Kyrgyzstan, interned at a refugee resettlement organization in Maryland, taught French at the University of Oklahoma and became a youth librarian. About 10 years ago, though, she circled back to writing. “I really got serious in 2014,” she said. “That fall I wrote five novels back-to-back, and the last one landed me an Oklahoma children’s author agent and a publishing Kim Ventrella. [PHOTO PROVIDED] contract.” “Skeleton Tree,” a children’s book, came out in September. “It tells the story,” she said, “of a boy who finds beauty, and maybe a friend, in Death with the help of an unusual tree growing in his backyard.” The book, which is equal parts grief and healing, earned high praise from other authors and reviewers. Paul Griffin, who wrote “Burning Blue” and “When Friendship Followed Me Home,” said Ventrella’s book “upends the myth of the Grim Reaper. Scary, funny and always so, so sweet, ‘Skeleton Tree’ will haunt me and remind me that life is miraculous when it’s rooted in hope and empathy.” Ventrella said, “Children come to the book expecting a fun, spooky story, and they leave having discovered a new perspective on life, death and what it means to be a family.” Children’s books are important, she said, because they develop imagination and help kids see beyond the walls of their homes and schools.

LOOKATOKC.COM

“It’s hard to hate someone just because they’re different once you know their story,” she said. “Especially today, with so many people in power doing whatever they can to spread hatred and divisiveness, it’s important that we all read more. Reading builds empathy, understanding and compassion, and it is a great defense against intolerance.” Ventrella recalled one adult reader who told her that reading “Skeleton Tree” did “more for her than six years of therapy, in particular the story line about the main character’s father.” Pretty good for a book aimed at children in grades three through seven. With all the electronic distractions available to children today, one might worry that kids aren’t reading enough. She disagrees.

“From my experience as a librarian and author, I believe that children are some of the best readers around,” she said. “Often, that love of reading dwindles as people grow older and take on more responsibilities. If anything, I would encourage adults to look to kids as role models for how to fall in love with reading and embrace great stories.” Ventrella’s second book, “Bone Hollow,” will be available from Scholastic Press next spring. “The tagline for the book is: ‘Death is only the beginning …,’ ” she said. “It’s not a sequel to ‘Skeleton Tree,’ but it deals with a similar theme, features a lovable dog and is basically the world’s sneakiest prequel.” Ventrella will be featured at an upcoming Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) of Oklahoma workshop. The group will hold a writer/illustrator workshop from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 23 at the Bartlesville Public Library. There will be both a writer track and illustrator track to choose from, and both will help attendees to understand the ins and outs of the publishing world. Those on the writing track will learn from Ventrella, offering a wealth of information about great books and how to use them to make writing better. Ventrella’s topic for the day will be “What is a Mentor Text and How Can it Strengthen My Writing? — Analyzing Novel Structure through Mentor Texts and Creating Emotional Impact with the Help of Mentor Texts.” The illustrators will be led by Hannah E. Harrison, illustrator and author. Harrison’s first book, “Extraordinary Jane,” received three starred reviews, was a Junior library Guild selection, a Kirkus Best Book of the Year, won the Oklahoma Book Award for Illustration and was selected for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Her subsequent books — “Bernice Gets Carried Away” and “My Friend Maggie” — also have received starred reviews. Her latest book, “Friends Stick Together,” was released in April. Harrison’s topic will be “From Concept to Book: How Maggie Got a Little Help from Her Friends” and “The Art of Storytelling.” Both illustrators and writers will hear her speak on “Sticking it Out.” A small group critique time for writers and an illustrator will be held. Cost for the workshop is $25 for SCBWI members and $35 for nonmembers. For more information about the workshop and other events happening on June 23, go to SCBWI Oklahoma at oklahoma.scbwi.org.

THE FLAMING LIPS

THE FLAMING LIPS FOLLOW THEIR OWN RULES

BY GENE TRIPLETT For LOOKatOKC

T

he few successful rock bands that have managed to hang together long enough to issue five or six albums on a major label have more than likely already released at least one and sometimes two “best of” compilations. But Oklahoma City’s own self-described “fearless freaks” don’t follow any record industry rules, not to mention creative conventions. The Flaming Lips band has been together in one form or another since 1983, issuing 19 full-length albums — 15 of those on Warner Bros. Records — and picked up three Grammys along the way. The band members even made a couple of movies together. And only now — June 1 — did the band release “The Flaming Lips Greatest Hits Vol. 1.” So, what took so long? “Well we probably would have tried to do that even awhile back,” Lips leader Wayne Coyne said in a recent phone interview. “I don’t think we ever quite found the time to say, ‘OK, let’s do this.’ I think it was connected with the ability to remaster it all with (longtime Lips producer) Dave Fridmann, as well, and I think some of those were the things that all lined up to say let’s do it now. And I think we were starting to notice that people were starting to put together good Flaming Lips compilations anyway. You know, you would go to the digital playlists on Spotify and stuff like that, and they would already

(2002), “At War with the Mystics” (2006), “Embryonic” (2009) and the band’s current album, “Oczy Mlody” (2017). The deluxe three-CD set contains 52 tracks in all, taking in SEE LIPS, 11

THE FLAMING LIPS

LIPS CONTINUED FROM 10 additional albums “Hit to Death in the Future Head” (1992), the highly experimental “Zaireeka” (1997), “The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends” (2012) and “The Terror” (2013). The deluxe box also includes several international B-sides, studio outtakes and unreleased tracks from this left-of-center psych-rock band’s tremendous body of work. And if that’s not enough to satisfy hard-core Flaming Lips fans, in April Rhino Records released yet another retrospective, “Scratching the Door,” this one containing the group’s very first recordings from the original lineup of singer Mark Coyne (Wayne’s younger brother), drummer Richard English and bassist Michael Ivins, with the elder Coyne on lead guitar. And there’s more. On June 29, Rhino will unleash “Seeing the Unseeable: The Complete Recordings of The Flaming Lips 1986-1990,” a six-CD box set covering their four albums for the indie Restless label — “Hear It Is” (1986), “Oh My Gawd!!!...The Flaming Lips” (1987), “Telepathic Surgery” (1989) and “In a Priest Driven Ambulance (With Silver Sunshine Stares)” (1990). The sets other sonic gems include “Godzilla Flick,” “Unconsciously Screaming,” “One Million Billionth of a Millisecond on a Sunday Morning” and the band’s cover of the classic “(What a) Wonderful World.” The set also holds rare recordings originally released as B-sides, flexi discs and on various compilations, such as the Sub Popsingle “Strychnine/ Peace, Love and Understanding” and a cover of “After the Gold Rush” from a 1989 Neil Young tribute album.

MAGIC INGREDIENTS Coyne said it was a lot of hard, time-consuming work, but it helped that the Lips haven’t had a lot of new material to worry over since “Oczy Mlody” — the band’s last album of fresh tracks — was released in January 2017. “We knew that if we didn’t put anything out — that’s my biggest dilemma, as well, is putting out another record — if we didn’t put anything out, it would allow us a good year or so to make these things and put them out. And so that’s why they’re all coming out this year. We started to work on it right after (“Oczy”) came out.” Of course, the band also found time to work out a deal with independent craft brewery Dogfish Head to come out with a special, beer-filled vinyl single, “The Story of Yum Yum and Dragon,” just in time for Record Store Day on April 21. Coyne even had some input as to the ingredients to be used in the custom brew — which happens to be pink.

The Flaming Lips Greatest Hits Vol. 1 “Well I think they sent us from flavors and some combinations of things,” he said. “And I told them in the beginning that I’m not a real beer connoisseur myself. I don’t really drink beer, but most of the beers that I remember were from way back in the ’70s, like Coors and Budweiser, and that would be my palate of beer. Beer nowadays has gotten pretty sophisticated, and with a lot of flavorings that have gone on. So, in the beginning I was sort of suggesting that I didn’t want it to be too sweet. I didn’t want it to feel like someone poured some Kool-Aid into my Coors Light. I’d like it to still taste like a beer. And I think (they) knew what I was talking about. It’s a slightly sour beer compared to some that are sweeter, but I like that about it. It’s not too hoppy. In some beers I think there’s too much of that hops flavor. So, I think that some

of the nuances that I expressed that I didn’t like, (they) really seemed to know how to make that possible.” The “magic” ingredients in the brew were dragonfruit and yumberries, which inspired Coyne to create the characters in the songs “The Store of Yum Yum and Dragon” and “Pouring Beer in Your Ear.” The limited edition, translucent, beer-filled vinyl will be pretty hard to find by now, but the beverage itself will be available on retail shelves and on tap through August, according to a Warner Bros. news release. For more information on Dragons & YumYums, go to dogfish.com/rsd. As for the song selections on the three Flaming Lips compilations of tunes, Coyne credits longtime Lips manager Scott Booker, who also happens to be the founder and head of the Academy of Contemporary

MUSIC

Music at the University of Central Oklahoma, for picking the tunes and their playing order. “I think Scott would always have a good running idea of what this ‘Greatest Hits’ stuff would be. He loved all that sort of stuff. Scott has always been a fan of the way The Beatles would compile different — you know, they wouldn’t call them ‘Greatest Hits’ — but it would be different versions of their most popular songs just sort of stuck together on different records. “We just haven’t done that that often, but I think he’s always had it in the back of his mind. We sort of left it up to him that he would decide this should be on there, this should be second and this should be third. I don’t think anybody had any disagreement with it. It would be impossible for us, being so invested in it — in them as records. We were all quite relieved that he was so decisive about it. And so there you go. Cool. Sounds like it’s gonna be fun. And then when you hear them all together, sitting up there with Dave Fridmann as we would decide about different volumes and EQ things and all that, it’s fun. It’s a lot of fun. “And I could see even the glee in Dave Fridmann doing it, going back to records that we made even before he was with us. Saying, God, this classic. Most of it is a lot of love. So, most of the revisiting of all of our older stuff is absolutely fun, because then you don’t really realize that, you’re not that same emotional adult anymore. You’re just a different sort of person. We hear it. And it’s just insane, the amount of music that The Flaming Lips have made. See, I detached myself from it just then. Like I’m not even part of it. Those guys back in the ’80s and ’90s, don’t quite remember how it all got the way it goes.”

The Oklahoma City-based rapper and recording engineer works out of an apartment that doubles as a studio. His fridge sits only a few feet away from his computer, and his sofa is the artist lounge. Johnson creates and performs under the moniker WoRm, and he’s trying not to make too much noise for his neighbors while building a following in the local hip-hop scene. For his fourth full-length record “To-Go Plate,”

WoRm planned it like a family meal. He invited L.T.Z, Chris Savage, Grand National, Trip G, Petyon Benge, Ashlee Watkins and many more to contribute. Nearly every single song is a team effort. The results — which WoRm also mixed and mastered himself — are a 14-track collection dedicated to upbeat jams and fun songs. WoRm said he’s been preparing these newly released rap and R&B flavored tracks since late 2016. He had 20 songs on the ready for “To-Go Plate” but decided to save the more serious tracks for a later album. Leftovers, I suppose. His dedication to the record is admirable.

I caught up with Johnson via email to discuss his record which recently landed via Super Dope Quotes.

MUSIC Q&A

JOHNSON CONTINUED FROM 12 Puzzle People. ... He is legendary. He manages a handful of rappers in the city, owns a club and is a family man on top of that. He’s a heavyweight in rap.

Q:

“To-Go Plate” is highly collaborative and almost every song features another Oklahoma-connected talent. What led to that? Was it difficult to wrangle everybody? Johnson: I just wanted to get better and teach myself to mix. Before my previous album (“Chicken N Waffles”), I really didn’t want to rap about my ex or make anymore “girl songs” or “love songs.” They got too sad or too real. For “To-Go Plate,” I just wanted to make music and pick the best songs. Keep everything organic. I also wanted to show my growth as a producer. I didn’t want to wait on the right song to do a feature. When it comes to wrangling everyone in, I had a wish list of artists I wanted to work with but I didn’t want to force anything. Some people’s schedules conflicted but it happens. We’ll connect later.

Q:

There’s no shortage of food references on “To-Go Plate.” What’s your favorite food? Johnson: I think I speak for everyone in the world when I say food is amazing! Especially soul food or breakfast food. Any food that’s “not good for you” is amazing. My favorite meal is chicken and waffles.

Q:

You create music in your apartment. Are there any challenges in making music come together in such tight quarters. Johnson: I’ve been making music since high school, so I would always be making music in my room. This apartment is a step up for me! I’ve gotten used to it. I’ve been blessed to not get any complaints of loud music from any of my neighbors.

Q:

I noticed you often post online about matters of mental health. What made you want to open up about that? Johnson: I felt it was important to raise awareness and have the conversation in an open forum. For a long time, I longed to witness people having true, honest, raw and open conversations about mental health. My father is a counselor. He owns his own agency here in the city, Counseling Solutions and Interventions. We’re all weird. We all act and think differently, but the one thing we have in common is that we’re people. Humans above all. ... Music is definitely a means of therapy for me, at times. As I get older, I’m learning newer ways to channel different energies. Sometimes it’s better for me to just speak what’s on my mind without having to rhyme or degrade my musical art to express myself. I used to use Twitter as a journal. Why not try to reach out? I can’t be the only one.

HOLEY ROLLERS

Holey Rollers

spreads gourmet gospel BY DAVE CATHEY Food Editor dcathey@oklahoman.com

Located in the historic Paseo Plunge, 3010 Paseo, substantive doughnuts and pastries made fresh daily are the stock and trade at Holey Rollers — ideal for a decadent breakfast in bed. But if you do drop by this week don’t be surprised if you walk out with a lot more than doughnuts, and a new favorite hangout. TAKING THE PLUNGE First impressions of the doughnut shop are deceiving. Wood accents and bright pastels are plenty inviting, but there doesn’t appear to be much seating in the 400 or so square feet dedicated to front of the house. However, 180 degrees from the cash register you’ll find an entryway into the

cozy common area, which boasts plenty of seating and Wi-Fi. It shares the space with Literati Press, where you can find something to read if you’re dining alone. Now that that spring has sprung, the patio is open. For co-owner Andrea Koester, any seating at all is a luxury since the concept began as a mobile kitchen, which is where much of her operating background comes from via Big Truck Tacos. She was among the original employees of the popular food truck back in 2009 and spent several years managing the mobile arm of the operation. “I learned a lot at Big Truck,” Koester said. “They do it so well. I learned so much about how to run a food truck and complement a restaurant with one.” Koester’s experience gave her the confidence to launch her own business, selling vegan pastries to vendors across the metro. Response was strong enough to lead Koester to a 1962 Zipper trailer.

Koester had it up and running at the Urban Agrarian Market and for special events by April of 2016. Response was strong enough to make Koester and partners Josh Gautreaux and John Otjen confident enough to take The Plunge — the one in the Paseo that had been vacant since the late 1980s. The Paseo Plunge opened in the 1930s as a popular public indoor swimming pool. Then notorious nightclub owner Jake Samara bought it and he and his partner Jack Sussy used it to store their frozen pizza and spaghetti products. When that business went south, Samara opened The Spaghetti Factory, where diners could create and had the option to cook their own pizzas or eat all the spaghetti they could handle for $2.50 Tuesdays through Thursdays. By 1990, the subterranean property was abandoned, remaining vacant until the late John Belt and his family began restoring it. DOLLARS TO DOUGHNUTS

Last fall the space became home to a cooperative now anchored by Holey Rollers. Having a fixed location kitchen gave Koester the latitude to hire a pastry chef. During her time operating at The Urban Agrarian Market she met chef Tim Mort, a Stillwater native recently returned to Oklahoma from the posh Amangani Resort and Hotel in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Mort’s time at the luxury property presented him with every conceivable challenge at all hours of the day and night, and said it was the best training he could’ve asked for. “We sort of specialized in making things happen for our guests, no matter what,” Mort said. “It’s like you have no choice but to get better.” The trial-by-fire resourcefulness Mort developed has been a godsend to Holey Rollers. “We really go to a lot of trouble to make sure things are right,” Mort said. “Some of the doughnuts are baked, some are fried — it just depends on what’s best for the item.” Mort said he’s also developed a bond with the folks at Tanh-Son Tofu.

“I’ve definitely learned more about tofu working here than anything else,” Mort joked. That’s because Mort serves a breakfast sandwich (egg and tofu) on a housemade English muffin that you really don’t want to miss. If you consider yourself tofu-averse, this item is a good one to test the theory against. Promise. Holey Rollers began as a strictly vegan endeavor, but not because Koester embraces a meat-free movement. “I can’t eat dairy, so it started out as just creating something I could eat,” Koester said. “All our doughnuts are still dairy-free.” The menu has evolved away from any hard and fast labels. Organic ingredients are used extensively but not exclusively. “For us, it’s really about using what we think are the best ingredients,” Koester explained. “Plus, we knew we were going to have coffee service, and you need milk for that. That’s why we got away from doing everything vegan.” The menu has since evolved to include breakfast sandwiches with vegan English muffins and local, farm-fresh eggs from Shawnee. Holey Rollers also serves breakfast tacos, and yogurt with house-made granola and overnight oats. Vegans are still well-covered at Holey Rollers and will be hard-pressed to find a pastry shop in town with more to offer them. That said, the menu now plays to a broader audience, which is a wise business decision. DOUGHNUTS TO DOLLARS The doughnuts at Holey Rollers aren’t cheap. Embrace it because, in this case, it’s a good thing. A dozen doughnuts runs about $30, but this dozen will actually feed a dozen people. That’s because Mort arrives at work by 3 a.m. every day not only to make the doughnuts by hand, but to deliver the goods. Crack open a doughnut from Holey Rollers and you will see this is an actual pastry. Doughnuts that cost less than a dollar are typically whipped with so much air the resulting doughnut practically floats out of the hot oil and into the case. That means you need two or three

Traditionalists should start with a vanilla bean raised yeast doughnut. “That’s our take on the traditional glazed doughnut,” Koester said. Koester calls the apple cider doughnut topped with cinnamon and sugar a signature of the baked selections. The Mexican Hot Chocolate includes a dash of cayenne and cinnamon-ghost pepper salt. Even the sprinkles they use are all-natural. The fritter is, perhaps, the piece de resistance. Mort serves seasonal options and rotates in new flavors to keep things interesting.

SixTwelve, 612 NW 29 St., started hosting the fledgling farmers market recently and is scheduled to continue it from 9 a.m. to noon each Saturday through the end of October. Koester, Gautreaux and Otjen are just getting started around Paseo.

Podiatric surgeon, an OU graduate, crafts luxury shoes

Best foot forward

s a podiatric surgeon, Marion Parke knows about feet. As a woman, she knows how she wants her feet to feel in shoes. So, who better to create a more wearable, stylish shoe than a podiatrist turned shoe designer? Parke, a University of Oklahoma graduate, launched her first namesake collection in spring 2016. Since then, her luxury shoes have caught the attention of women across the country, including countless celebrities, who have a little more spring in their step thanks to Parke’s sculpted and contoured insole. She said it’s that insole that sets her shoes apart from others. A traditional insole generally is a flat piece of cardboard. Hers follows the natural contour and curvature of the bottom of the foot. Key elements are arch support, cupping in the heel and added material along the outside for a more stable position of the foot. While others may describe her shoes as comfortable, that’s not a word Parke uses. She thinks the expectations are different. Her shoes are not made for people with foot problems or bunions. Her shoes aren’t extra wide or extra deep. They’re for the woman with normal feet who says she still can’t wear a high heel for more than 30 minutes. “That’s where the white space is in the market,” she said, adding her shoes are for the woman who likes to shop designer and loves fashion. “I think the shoes speak for themselves,” Parke said. They’re a fashion shoe first and foremost. “My shoes are not meant to feel like sneakers.” Shoes can be fashion, an art form and creative expression, and not all designers approach their work in the same way or with the same results. Parke said she encourages women to take the shoe challenge. “Try another brand on one foot and a Marion Parke shoe on the other, and feel the wearability.” What needs to change is the perception and understanding of what makes a shoe a SEE PARKE, 19

PARKE CONTINUED FROM 18 good shoe, she said. One of those myths is the idea that more cushioning is the answer. She said clients tell her they need more cushioning on the ball of their foot, but often more cushion leads to more fatigue and soreness over time. People who have problem feet often are lacking the fat pad on the bottom of the foot, she said. Those with normal feet really need more support and more rigidity in their footwear. Parke isn’t the first podiatrist to turn her attention to shoes. Other brands have reached out for expert advice, but none have approached construction like she has. It’s the combination of what she brings that makes the difference. There’s a taste level that hasn’t been reached until now, she said. “I think I have a unique skill set. I have an elevated

taste level and aesthetic,” and the technology blends seamlessly with the rest of the shoe. It doesn’t take away from the Italian craftsmanship. “The way women shop for shoes is with their heart not their head,” she said. When shopping, it’s not unusual for women to make a shoe purchase even against their better judgment. “We lead with the beauty of the shoe, and the wearability factor is secondary because that’s the way we shop for shoes,” Parke said. “We shop with our hearts, and so that’s the way this collection is designed.” She said every well-trained podiatrist has an arsenal of ideas of what can make a shoe fit better, a shoe more aligned with the biomechanics of our anatomy, “but I think it’s the taste level, that artfulness, that tastefulness that’s been a huge part of the brand today.”

FASHION, FUNCTION Almost immediately after the collection launched, Parke started getting interest from magazines, retailers and the fashion industry. She was a finalist for the

Accessory Council’s Emerging Designer Award in 2015 and received Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Award in Accessories for 2017. Parke grew up in Oklahoma City, attended Casady School, played hockey and soccer, graduated from OU with a degree in zoology and was on track for pre-med. While working at OU Health Sciences Center, she discovered the advantages of podiatry and liked the different sub specialties in medicine. She went to Chicago’s Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine and became a foot and ankle surgeon. She now lives in Minneapolis. It was during her second year of school in a podiatry biomechanics class that she started thinking about how she could marry fashion with function. She said she was learning how to manage patients with high arches by using orthotics and wondered why that couldn’t be applied to a woman’s dress shoe. “That’s effectively what I’ve done,” she said. Parke admitted she’s always loved fashion so it’s fitting SEE PARKE, 20

PARKE CONTINUED FROM 19 that she be the one to successfully create a more wearable shoe with a heavy dose of style. She has two utility patents pending on the insole she’s developed. The idea was to take the concept and mold it in a very discreet and elevated luxury way. “I was on maternity leave with my first son when I took this deep dive into research about how to start,” Parke said. She made cold calls to factories and came across the Italian Trade Commission in New York that helps people who want to do any kind of business in Italy. She simply asked, “I want to start a shoe company. Who do I talk to?” It took years and lots of persistence. In footwear there are so many balls in the air, she said. Every part of the

PAGE 20

JUNE 14–27, 2018

shoe is made in a different factory. If one piece of the shoe is delayed, lost or damaged, it can affect the entire production. “I learned how to push forward and just keep going,” she said. Initially she said she didn’t even know she needed help or needed a production team in Italy for the technical side, for sourcing leathers, pattern making and consulting. But she got set up legally and met the right people to build the infrastructure of the company. Hers is the same factory that produces luxury footwear for Jimmy Choo, Prada and Miu Miu. The difference between their shoes and hers is the fit and mold with the insole she developed. It’s the same craftsmen and resources from the same tanneries as the luxury brands. The craftsmanship is second to none, she said, but her brand includes design and structure intelligence behind the construction. Parke’s evolution from podiatry to shoe designer took

time. She graduated from OU in 2004, and it was in 2006 that the idea for a better wearing shoe hit her. It was nearly 10 years later that the fist shoe shipped. Balliets in Oklahoma City was one of the first stores to buy the collection. Even early on when she first had the idea she knew the importance of credibility, of being able to say, “I know how biomechanics work and I love fashion, so here it is.” As a surgeon, she performed more than 1,000 surgeries in three years and oversaw foot and ankle trauma. Though she knew her feet often hurt during residency, it wasn’t until she was in practice and treating female patients that the idea to make shoes started to take hold again. Her patients often asked about their shoe options and during appointments she would teach them what to look for in shoes and how to test for support and stability. No surprise, her patients often said maybe she should make shoes. Now she is.

inally, it’s safe to free our toes, slip into sandals and spring for color. Cold weather certainly took its time leaving, but that just makes spring and summer shoes even more appealing. “Spring is looking amazing this year, and it’s all in the details. From a tiki circular heel to oversized grommets, raffia woven wedges to zebra wood flatforms, there is something unique about the details,” said Betsy King, owner of Betsy King A Shoe Boutique in the Paseo Arts District. Let’s just call them a party for your feet. “I think the slide continues to be the strongest silhouette coming in everything from mirrored metallics, bright pops of color and soft pastels,” she said. Trends don’t stop there. Say hello to kitten heels and slingback styles. Cowboy boots, both original and more creative takes on the classic. Lavender and other tempting pastels. Chunky, thick-soled sneakers. Lace-up strappy stilettos and classic pumps. Accents such as lacing, contrast piping, straps, buckles and pompoms. Clear heels and straps. And glitter and shine. “I feel that there’s really something out there that’s on trend for everyone,” King said Shoe designer Brian Atwood found inspiration from the movie “Paris is Burning” and his spring collection revolves around flowers, punk, color (his favorite is purple), tie dye, kaleidoscope, pony and leather. His shoes are eyecatching and fun. His slides and kitten heel sling backs with safety pin accents have been especially popular, said Maria Casabianca, a sales representative who was at CK & Co. for a trunk show.

Women are ready for ladylike shoes and a simple, great-looking pump, especially one of the designer’s sky-high heels, can finish off an outfit, Casabianca said. At Head Over Heels Boutique in Edmond, the focus is more on shoes a little closer to the ground. “This season for us is all about fun, comfort, color and shine,” said Sue Krominga and Kelsey Moore, owners of Head Over Heels Boutique in Edmond. While high heels often are high fashion, the owners say women can be stylish in lower heels and flats, both of which are grabbing attention this season.

WOMAN

Oklahoma’s Sierra Snow is ready to make her mark BY LINDA MILLER For LOOKatOKC

Sierra Snow was 9 when she made a tote bag from a pair of jeans by Justice, a popular brand for tween girls. That simple craft project and the others that followed introduced her to what would evolve into a fashion design major and career choice while garnering praise and awards along the way at Kent State University in Ohio. When she returned home to Edmond during summers, Snow broadened her knowledge of the industry by working Sierra Snow retail jobs and finetuned her skills at an internship at Oklahoma City-based McCubbin Hosiery. “Originally I was going to major in business and work on the sales side,” Snow said. Her focus shifted. “Imagine how bored I would be if not in design.” Denim totes, handbags and accessories brought out her crafty side early on, but fashion design became her passion in school. Her thesis collection, a women’s leisure and ready-to-wear collection centered around women’s activism and historic icon Rosie the Riveter, received The Fashion School’s coveted Most Market Ready award this year. Snow said she studied Rosie and what she

PAGE 22

JUNE 14–27, 2018

stood for and meant to others during World War II, along with the current women’s movement, to create her thesis collection. She took the idea of uniforms and the function that goes into them, along with pockets and buckles, and designed her own interpretation. The collection will be produced and sold at The Fashion School Store. Snow also was selected to participate in the school’s New York City Portfolio Showcase earlier this month, where she met with Kent State alumni working in the fashion industry. They offered advice about living and working in New York. She also received feedback on her designs from professionals involved in different aspects of fashion. The event allowed professionals to meet with and see new talent coming into the industry, and Snow said she felt good about the response. She was told her designs fit well with popular ready to wear brands Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Nautica. A Macy’s recruiter said her suits, shirts and work wear complemented private label Alfani’s design direction. “I do think I’m a more conservative designer,” Snow said. But like many women her age — she’ll be 22 on June 23 — she’s a fan of fast fashion. “I love the concept of fast fashion. I love to shop the concept of fast fashion.” Snow agrees there’s always room in a wardrobe for one or two of the most current items, those pieces that are budget friendly and aren’t meant to last a lifetime.

‘EMPOWERING WOMEN’ But when it comes to what she enjoys designing, she said she’s passionate about outerwear from both personal and design levels. She likes coats, jackets and heavy top layers and always includes a blazer or two, SEE SNOW, 23

SNOW CONTINUED FROM 22 bomber jacket or oversize trucker jacket in her portfolio. “Overall, I really like contemporary style,” she added, with staple pieces that can transition from season to season and year to year. Snow said she doesn’t buy into the idea that clothing is in style one season and out of style next and therefore shouldn’t be worn again. “I believe in staple pieces — staple shirts, pants and jackets, things you can mix and match and transition from season to season,” she said. Staples do not mean boring either. Details, fabric and prints add interest. And while she loves what she designs, she doesn’t design and make many of her own clothes. School has been too consuming. Every single piece in her thesis collection was designed and constructed by her. That doesn’t leave much time to fill her closet with Sierra Snow original creations. With school finished, she’s exploring opportunities and trying not to think too far ahead. “Right now, I really want to jump right into the industry and get as much experience as I can,” she said. Maybe in 10 or 15 years, she’ll be ready for her own brand and to be her own boss. “That’s the ultimate goal,” she said. Her immediate plan is to find the right opportunity where she can design the style of clothes she thinks women want to wear, that make them feel enlivened and inspired. “I love empowering women. That’s why I was drawn to designing womenswear rather than menswear” for the thesis, she said. She said that’s the way she shops, too. She loves to find pieces that speak to her and make her feel strong and empowered. “That’s kind of the idea and motive that I shoot for in each garment,” Snow said.
