LEGAL AND CREDITS

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR “Eating Together” In the steamer is the trout seasoned with slivers of ginger, two sprigs of green onion, and sesame oil. We shall eat it with rice for lunch, brothers, sister, my mother who will taste the sweetest meat of the head, holding it between her fingers deftly, the way my father did weeks ago. Then he lay down to sleep like a snow-covered road winding through pines older than him, without any travelers, and lonely for no one. In “Eating Together” Li-Young Lee, one of my favorite poets, writes about partaking in meals together with his family. There is a strong sense of community related to particulars of scent and spice and the idiosyncrasies of manner. Lee reveals the extraordinary in the ordinary as he recalls a typical family meal. Something mysterious and beautiful exists in the moments of customary calm as loved ones share the common ritual of eating. And it’s no surprise that Lee’s memory of his father eating trout leads him to thinking about his father’s death. Because in the seemingly mundane and routine act of eating together, an extraordinary thing

happens – an occurrence of a sense of connectedness and belonging. And while the mention of the death of Lee’s father sets a melancholy and sad tone, we are also reminded of the wonder and beauty that exists in close relationships, established and furthered in something as common as “eating together,” for Lee’s father “lay down[…] lonely for no one.” The focus of this issue of So6ix is food and drink. Read through the articles to find out information about the best restaurants in OKC, numerous options for beer lovers, and healthy ideas for dining out. And while you flip through the pages, consider eating together with friends and family more often and be reminded of what a blessing it is to have the opportunity to dine together with those whom you love. Have a great October and a Happy Halloween!

STYLE

HIGH FASHION H I P A N D H E A LT H Y I N OKLAHOMA BY Johnathan

Kayne

The fashion set has been crowding eateries in Lincoln Center every day for the past week — but not for a big greasy burger filled with cheesy goodness and bacon. Rather, it’s been the much more predictable spinach salad with Parmesan cheese, spiced pecans, pear and vinaigrette. But there’s a twist; they’re splitting the salads. These restaurants typically expect that a four-top table will do about $130, but with the fashion crowd, they only do about $70. The owners weren’t complaining because the business was fantastic this past week. Also, the fashion flamingoes tip pretty well, even if they only eat like sparrows. This posed a really interesting question to me. “If we could make Oklahomans more fashionable, could we also make them healthier and leaner?” This is a challenge that intrigues me. Just like Oprah and so many others, I have dealt with weight issues my whole life. I am the first to say, “Feel beautiful at whatever weight you are,” but I am also guilty of wanting to shed a few pounds to get into that pair of designer jeans or a swimsuit. I would like to positively promote a healthier lifestyle through fashion. The public is increasingly fascinated by what celebrities and models eat. The public’s more recent fixation with celebrity eating is about how the trend has shifted to starlets telling us not about what they don’t eat, but how much they do eat! And, we love to hear it. There’s even a new acronym to describe this fascination: DIPE, which stands for Documented Instance of Public Eating. The message: The fashion/celeb clan can wolf 30

down a bucket of wings or binge on a pepperoni pizza in bed just like the rest of us. I’m reminded of that old Pantene shampoo commercial where a barefaced, straggly hair model would say right before her on-screen transformation: “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful; in the morning I look just like you.” Phew. I encourage everyone to either look in your closet and see if there is a garment that is just a little snug or small and pull it out. This is your new goal point. Or if you are like me, you would rather head to your favorite shopping destination and pick out a new outfit. Something you really love. Next, try it on in a size smaller. If it is a realistic goal that you can meet, then this should be your new outfit to try to get into. Now don’t just starve yourself, but make small changes like taking a walk three times a week or laying Johnathan Kayne off sodas.

BROWN SPOTS LO O K G R E AT O N A D E S I G N E R B AG , BUT NOT ON YOUR SKIN! BY Harvey

Jenkins MD, PhD

Do you happen to have areas of increased pigments, red spots or brown spots on your skin? If so, don’t worry, a lot us do. In fact, we all have them. Brown spots and red spots look great on a designer purse or shoes. They also seem appropriate on animals at the Zoo. However, they don’t “play so well” on Human Skin. Spots, areas of red or brown hyperpigmentation (increased pigmentation/coloration) or abnormal pigmentation are usually the result of sun damage, normal aging, or genetics. Even though they are commonplace and widespread, people tend to be very self-conscious about them, especially when they occur on the face and hands. They feel that these “imperfections” detract from their appearance and attractiveness. Nationally, and in OKC, red spot and brown spot removal are popular reasons to visit the local med spa, esthetic medicine specialist or dermatologist. WHAT IS AFT OR IPL? AND HOW CAN IT HELP? Advanced Fluorescent Technology (AFT), otherwise known as Intense Pulsed Light, skin treatments using the Photo-rejuvenation process represent a breakthrough in age-defying skin care, which are specific treatments that fall under the heading of Photo-facial treatment. This new technique treats skin damage non-invasively — there is no disruption of the skin's epidermal surface. AFT treatments address the effects of photo-aging and sun damage with low risk of complications and no recovery time. You can have it done over your lunch hour in as little as 20 minutes. AFT works in a way that is similar to how laser works. The light of a specific wavelength and intensity is emitted into the area of discoloration or increased pigmentation. The excitement of the colored target leads to the destruction or 40

so6ix.com | OCTOBER 2011

bleaching, and theoretically only the normal colored of skin remains. Because specifically targets brown or red, depending on the settings of light that are chosen, dark skin with discoloration (i.e. Afro-American skin) is not appropriate for AFT/IPL and should never be done. AFT or IPL is the gold standard for photorejuvenation. This FDA-cleared, patented technology provides dramatic results for a variety of benign conditions, including age spots, sun-induced freckles, symptoms of rosacea, birthmarks, unsightly veins, acne scarring and other blemishes — even unwanted hair. Why choose AFT over other treatment options? Laser resurfacing and deep chemical peels often send patients into hiding, as they wait for redness and swelling to subside. Microdermabrasion addresses many skin irregularities, but it’s not effective against all complexion problems including redness, flushing and broken capillaries. Face lifts and other surgical procedures are far too invasive for younger patients and "baby boomers" who simply want to revitalize their appearance without recovery downtime. If you have a problem with brown spot or red spot pigmentation, AFT/IPL may be the right choice for you. Or at least, you will feel less compelled to have to match your exotic purse and shoes to your skin.

FIVE EASY AND HEARTY FALL RECIPES

BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP Soups are great for lunch, between-meal snacks, or paired with dinner. And homemade soups in the fall and winter are particularly satisfying. However, they can be labor intensive, so we've made it fast and easy for you. Purchase some fresh, fall butternut squash and enjoy.

Fall has finally arrived, and with it crisper weather. It's time for some easy, cool-weather comfort food, and we have just the ticket. Below are quickly made, rib-sticking recipes that will appeal to all. And it's pigskin time again, so we haven't forgotten to toss in a few football favorites.

In a large stock pot, heat the olive oil. Add the onion, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until the onions are soft, but not brown. Add the squash and a little more salt and pepper, cooking until tender. Add enough chicken stock to cover the squash along with the cumin, cayenne or chili powder, and a tad more salt and pepper if you like. Boil. Let simmer for another 20-30 minutes and serve.

FLANK STEAK Flank steak is a versatile and economical lunch option that is sure to please any crowd. You can grill this recipe in the backyard or use a grill pan in the kitchen. This recipe is always great along with a simple green salad. Ingredients: ¼ cup olive oil 4 cloves garlic, smashed 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon sugar 2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper 1 ½ pounds trimmed flank steak Combine the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, sugar, salt, and pepper. Marinate the flank steak in the mixture for a minimum of 30 minutes. Shake off the marinade and grill or cook in a lightly oiled grill pan for about 10 minutes per side over medium meat. 42

so6ix.com | OCTOBER 2011

Ingredients: 1 small butternut squash peeled, seeded, and cubed 1 medium onion, finely diced 3 cloves of minced garlic 1-2 cups chicken stock 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon fresh thyme 1 tablespoon chili powder or cayenne pepper pinch of cumin salt and pepper to taste

GRANNY PUD'S TANGY CHICKEN DINNER Granny Pud had a huge family to cook for, so she liked her meals ample and easy. Her tangy chicken never fails. Ingredients: 3-4 pounds chicken pieces 2-3 large white onions 24 ounces egg noodles about a bottle and a half of French dressing 2 tablespoons butter Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Clean and salt the chicken. Place it in a baking dish with a few pats of butter. Halve the onions, slice them thickly, and toss them over the chicken. Pour just as much French dressing as you want to all over it. Cook for an hour. Serve over boiled egg noodles.

SPICY BAKED CHICKEN WINGS Now it's time for some tried and true tailgating eats. As chicken wings are a game day standard, that's where we'll start. The fact that you bake these instead of frying them saves a lot of time and mess, so you'll never run out. Ingredients: 5 pounds frozen chicken wings ½ cup butter 2 cups Louisiana hot sauce 2 tablespoons white vinegar 1 tablespoon flour Blue Cheese dressing (of course!) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Layer the frozen wings in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake for 25 minutes, then turn. Heat the butter, Louisiana hot sauce, and vinegar, whisking it until the butter melts completely. Slowly add the flour and stir the mixture until it's as thick as you want it. Drain the wings, and let them cool for a few minutes. Pour the sauce over your wings and toss. HOT RED'S FUNKY TATER SALAD Let's face it: potato salad is boring. The good news? Hot Red's is anything but! Ingredients: 2-3 pounds red potatoes 2 small onions, chopped in thick pieces ½ cup spicy mustard ½ cup mayonnaise ½ teaspoon dill

1 tablespoon curry powder Tabasco to taste 1 tablespoon pickled jalapenos Cut the potatoes into healthy chunks and boil. Drain and add the mustard, mayonnaise, dill, onion, curry powder, and Tabasco. Mix well and top with the jalapeno peppers. RED ONION DIP You can't go wrong with dip for a game day snack. This onion dip takes almost no time to make and puts that congealed, inedible goop available in the grocery store to shame. Ingredients: 3 small red onions, finely chopped 2 cups beef stock 3 cloves minced garlic 1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley salt and pepper to suit your taste 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar 1 cup sour cream Cook the onions, beef stock, garlic, salt, and pepper in a skillet over medium heat until the onions have absorbed almost all of the stock. Let the mixture cool, then stir in the vinegar, sour cream, and parsley. Serve chilled with veggies, chips, or baguette slices. You're done. Everyone's been fed, and you weren't too busy cooking to enjoy the game!

BRING OUT THE BEER BY Jacqueline

Larocco

BUDWEISER This is the classic American lager! Adolphus Busch’s goal way back in 1876 was to create the first truly national beer brand for the United States. With the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness, the recipe has not changed through five generations of Busch brew masters.

BUD LIGHT LIME This light lager has that same wonderful “drinkability” that Bud Light provides, but throws in the kick of 100 percent natural lime flavor. This goes well with spicy grilled meats and fresh veggies. This is a great beer to have in the fridge when you don’t want to actually worry about keeping fresh limes around.

BUD LIGHT As the best-selling beer in America, Bud Light needs no introduction. Bud Light boasts its “drinkability” and rightfully so. With a delicate sweet taste and a crisp finish, it surpasses all other beers with its versatility.

MICHELOB ULTRA Michelob, introduced in 2002, was a astonishing hit and was the fastest-growing beer in the industry. Those who live an active lifestyle should go straight for this light-bodied, 95-calorie beer. It’s a great, refreshing, smooth beer with fewer calories than most.

BUDWEISER SELECT For those wanting to watch their waistline but still demand full flavor, Budweiser Select provides a bold caramel flavor with a distinctive, clean finish. At only 99 calories, Budweiser spends twice as much time in the brew house than regular beers. SELECT 55 For Bud drinkers who are extra conscious of the calories, Select 55 offers the lowest-calorie beer option around. Select 55 has light-golden coloring and has a crisp taste. A 12-ounce serving has only 1.9 grams of carbs and, of course, only 55 calories. BUDWEISER AMERICAN ALE Introduced just a few years ago, Budweiser American Ale is an American-style amber ale with a robust, full-bodied flavor. Citrus and caramel aromas blend perfectly to balance out bitter and sweet. This brew is made with Cascade hops and is perfect with a red meat dish. BUDWEISER/BUD LIGHT & CLAMATO CHELADA This is a savory mix of classic Budweiser or Bud Light combined with the spicy kick of Clamato Tomato Cocktail. Rotate the chilled can once before serving, and it is best served in a goblet-style glass with a slice of lime. 44

so6ix.com | OCTOBER 2011

MICHELOB ULTRA FRUIT This Michelob series features Michelob’s great pilsner style beer infused with fruit. So far, brewers have introduced three: Pomegranate Raspberry, Lime Cactus, and Dragon Fruit Peach. They are best enjoyed chilled and can be served from the bottle or in a fluted or pilsner-style glass. SHOCK TOP BELGIAN WHITE Shock Top is a Belgian-style unfiltered wheat ale brewed with orange, lemon, and lime peels. Enjoy this beer in a tall, wide-mouthed glass, and pair it with chicken or Asian dishes. Its smooth citrus taste also goes well with fresh salads. SHOCK TOP RASPBERRY WHEAT This is a newer Belgian-style wheat ale, introduced just this year, and it has the same smooth, refreshing taste of Shock Top Belgian White, but with a hint of raspberry. Serve it the same way—in a tall, wide-mouthed glass to showcase its foam head. MICHELOB ORIGINAL LAGER This is a European-style lager with a deep body and caramel malt. This beer is full-flavored, and it should be served in a traditional pilsner glass. It pairs well with Italian foods, particularly those drizzled with balsamic vinegar and also goes well with barbecue chicken breast and steak.

MICHELOB AMBERBOCK This is a dark, American bock-style lager with a nutty aroma and a hint of caramel malt. This lager is brewed using 100 percent malt and goes great with German-style foods. This beer also goes great with chocolates and cheeses, and it is best served in a tulip-shaped glass.

CZECHVAR This 1895 Czech lager hit the United States in 2007, and its delicious taste is desired by those seeking a perfect balance between sweet and bitter. It’s made with only top Czech ingredients, including Artesian well water that rests 300 meters deep! This is not your typical lager.

STELLA ARTOIS Stella Artois is a golden, Belgian lager, and this one is a classic. First brewed in 1366, there is only one way to serve this beer right, and that nine-step process is called the Belgian Pouring Ritual. This lager is best served with intense Asian or Indian dishes including curry.

LOWENBRAU From Munich, Germany comes this high-end imported lager with an herbal hop aroma. Lowenbrau means “lion’s brew” and is a traditional lager dating back to 1383. It goes great with grilled chicken, Pan-Asian dishes, and shellfish.

HOEGAARDEN Curaçao orange peel and coriander help make this Belgian white ale truly unique. With a rich history, dating back to 15th century Belgium, this beer has a refreshing flavor that goes great with fish dishes, especially those involving citrus. Just keep it cold! LEFFE BLONDE This is another classic Belgian beer, usually referred to as an “Abbey” beer, with a light, fruity flavoring and delicately bitter aftertaste. It dates back to 1240, and it is made with only the finest ingredients. You can pair it with hearty meat dishes like steak or pork loin, or you can even use it to compliment subtle cheeses. BASS Bass is a very popular English pale ale, and its recipe has not changed since 1777. It was painted by Manet, and it was served on the Titanic. Bass goes great with smoky poultry dishes and pastas. It should be served in its signature tri-glass and can even be paired with a stout beer. BODDINGTONS Boddingtons is a medium-bodied English pale ale with an easy-drinking flavor. It has a light sweet flavor and lingers in the mouth with an enjoyable aftertaste. This ale goes best with seafood or poultry dishes and also other spicy meals.

BECK’S Beck’s is a popular German pilsner that uses only the finest, top-grade barley and hops. Brewed in accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516, it has a truly unique, full-bodied taste, and the recipe has been honed and cultivated through generations. BECK’S DARK As the name suggests, Beck’s Dark is a dark German pilsner with a sweet, lingering aftertaste. By roasting the barley malt, the beer is given a dark, copper color. Beck’s Dark sets itself apart from other dark beers because it gives a robust, full-bodied flavor while keeping the refreshing taste of a lager. BECK’S OKTOBERFEST Oktoberfest—the two-week festival held each year in Germany (and now pretty much everywhere)—is the best time to drink Oktoberfest beer. The taste has a strong honey note and a hint of fruit. Beck’s Oktoberfest is available from September to October, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy it. ALEXANDER KEITH’S NOVA SCOTIA STYLE LAGER This lager is brewed with hops that have a slight, spicy flavor. The beer is deep amber in color and has a bitter but clean, crisp finish. Alexander Keith’s is one of the oldest beer brands in North America, and the beer is still brewed under the same principles of Alexander Keith himself. so6ix.com | OCTOBER 2011

S AT I S FAC T I O N LANDSHARK LAGER Landshark Lager is perfect for the beach or island lifestyle, but it’s also simply a great-tasting beer. It’s lighter than most lagers you’ll find, and it’s very drinkable with its refreshing taste. BUSCH Busch is another simple American-style lager, popular for its refreshing, easy-drinking taste. It’s a pale beer with a light body. It’s best served cold, and most enjoy it from the can. NATURAL LIGHT Brewed with both American and imported hops, this American-style lager is light bodied and has a balanced, refreshing taste. It’s brewed longer, meaning it has fewer calories and an easy-drinking character. Side note: Natural Light was Anheuser-Busch’s very first low-calorie light beer. ROLLING ROCK First brewed in 1939, this extra-pale lager has a unique taste with a subtle hop finish. It is best served in a tall, thin tumbler and goes great with chicken, pork tenderloin, and pepper jack cheese. BUD ICE Anheuser-Busch uses its special ice-brewing process to make a beer that has a rich, smooth taste. Bud Ice is the first American draft beer to be ice brewed, and with its slightly sweet flavor and smooth finish, it has become very popular. KIRIN ICHIBAN This imported Japanese-style pilsner has a full-bodied, refreshing taste. Made with the finest ingredients, Kirin is brewed with a special “first press” brewing process, giving the beer more flavor. The smooth taste of Kirin Ichiban makes it a perfect match for Asian dishes. 46

so6ix.com | OCTOBER 2011

S AT I S FAC T I O N O’DOUL’S For those seeking a flavorful malt beverage without the alcohol, O’Doul’s is one of the best tasting non-alcoholic beers available. It is brewed as a traditional, premium beer, and then it undergoes distillation to extract the alcohol content. By doing this without heat, the beer maintains much of its original, slightly sweet flavor and balance. REDBRIDGE Redbridge is a specialty, full-bodied lager that is gluten-free. Redbridge has a unique fruity aroma balanced with a moderately hopped finish. Redbridge is best served in a glass with a wide opening or pilsner-style glass, allowing the beer to showcase its foam head. Pair this beer with robust meats such as lamb or veal. WILD BLUE Wild Blue is another specialty beer offered by Anheuser-Busch. It is a fruit-infused lager and has a delightful ripe blueberry flavor and aroma and is finished with a tart kick. It goes great with highly flavorful dishes like pork tenderloin or rib roast. It also goes great with fruit salads. MICHELOB GOLDEN DRAFT This American-style lager is a premium draft beer with light fruit aromas and a medium-bodied, sweet taste. The cold-filtered lager has a smooth finish and is only available is select US markets. ZIEGENBOCK This regional specialty beer has a smooth, full flavor. It’s an easily drinkable bock beer with a malty flavor and deep amber color. ZeigenBock also earned its credentials by winning bronze at the 2006 Great American Beer Festival. HEFEWEIZEN Hefeweizen is an unfiltered American-style wheat beer with a cloudy appearance and a slight citrus aroma. The taste is crisp and has a lemon finish. Most like to add a lemon slice to enhance the flavor, which makes it go great with salads, seafood, and fruit desserts.

DRIFTER PALE ALE This American pale ale has a copper-amber color and thick white head. This is a greatly balanced beer with a slight citrus and fruity hop blend and caramel malt. Pair this ale with a cheddar cheeseburger or barbecue.

HURRICANE HIGH GRAVITY This spin off of the original Hurricane is a high-end malt liquor with full-bodied flavor and a smooth finish. It still has a sweet taste and aroma, but with a more smooth and distinct taste than most malt liquors.

ROTATOR This Indian pale ale is a rotating IPA series, meaning every few months a different IPA is released. This allowed the rotating beers to bring in different hops and malt strains. Rotator pairs well with strong, spicy food and flavorful, rich desserts, such as caramel apple tart.

GREEN LINE PALE ALE Green Line is honey colored and has a bright hop aroma and citrus flavor. Green Line is known for its pleasant, crisp bitterness, and should be served by the pint. It goes perfectly with barbecue and burgers.

WIDMER BROTHERS OKTO This is a great Oktoberfest ale with a unique twist. The dark orange-amber beer with an off-white head has a grapefruit and roasted malt aroma. Its caramel and dark fruit flavors create a well-balanced beer. Enjoy it with roasted or grilled chicken, Mexcan food, or spicy cheeses. MARGARITAVILLE SPIKED LEMONADE This is a very new drink, introduced this year, and it is a great-tasting malt beverage from Anheuser-Busch. It carbonated with 100 percent natural lemon flavors, and Margaritaville also offers a spiked iced tea. GOOSE ISLAND’S 312 URBAN WHEAT ALE 312’s fruity ale flavor and spicy aroma is coupled with a smooth, creamy body, which gives this beer great balance. It has a hazy straw color and is best served in a tall glass. 312 goes great with fish and salads, and also can be paired well with mozzarella cheese. HURRICANE MALT LIQUOR This full-bodied malt liquor is hearty, and its fruity, slightly sweet taste makes it a smooth drink. Hurricane has a yellow color and white head and has a subtle sweet aroma.

PEPE NERO Pepe Nero has a distinct, roasted chestnuts aroma and a dark, mahogany color. It is a Belgian-style farmhouse ale and is best served in a wide mouth glass. This superior ale is ideal with grilled meats and roasted vegetables. JULIET Juliet is tart and fruity with notes of dark fruit and spice. The rose-colored ale is a great suggestion for those who enjoy Pinot Noir and other Belgian sour ales. Pair Juliet with aged cheddar or a wide variety of dishes, including rotisserie chicken and roast pork or lamb. BOURBON COUNTY STOUT The name says it all. This is a stout beer. Its extreme dark color and thick foam are evidence of the amazing flavor that this beer contains. It is a great dessert beer, but it also compliments a strong cigar as well. ROCK LIGHT Rock Light is a pale, golden light lager with a refreshing, crisp taste. It’s very drinkable with its smooth finish, and is best served in a tall, thin tumbler glass. It goes great with spinach salad and Jacqueline Larocco Gouda cheese. so6ix.com | OCTOBER 2011

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 - NOVEMBER 21) Your thinking becomes progressive this month, and this is also about meeting new and smart people. Mercury is also a planet that relates to humour, so you can expect a few good laughs with the people that you’re hanging out with. Communication, working on clever dialogue with friends, and also studying life in general will offer you an opportunity to also plan or accomplish something new.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21) You will be “burning the candle at both ends,” and this is shown by the difficult aspect between Mars and Jupiter. Between the 3rd and the 9th, especially, you need to take stock of yourself and not promise what you can’t deliver. As a flow on from this aspect, Venus does provide you with a chance to appreciate the beautiful things in life as well as be appreciated for your own personal and inner beauty. You could find yourself in the limelight this month, particularly in your workplace.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19) You must again tend with some serious responsibilities from the 1st until the 5th.  You will realize that you can't use your charm to get you through some of the meetings and confrontational episodes that occur.  Saturn, Mars, and Venus don't in any way give you relief, and you could be working hard with very little recognition.   For 48

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 18) Particularly between the 10th and the 12th, there may be an opportunity to complete some work with a social reward at the end. A party, a business luncheon or some new and long-awaited change in your work environment makes business much more pleasurable, or indeed business and pleasure mix well together. Your social ability will also impress others.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 20) You’re very idealistic about love and between the 8th and the 13th may be working much harder to make your dreams a reality. As you are aware, sometimes these dreams are not met with the same level of enthusiasm or commitment by those with whom we interact. Even if this is the case, you should still remain positive and put your best foot forward by expressing what you believe is your best in love and friendship.   You might overdo things between the 15th and the 18th and this is because of the full Moon.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 19) Sex is uppermost in your mind after the 18th when the Sun enters your eighth zone of deep transformation, sexuality, and intimacy. This is a time when you’ll want to express these deeper,

family throughout October. With Neptune in your zone of creativity, you can help others along the path of their own creative needs. But you do need to exercise care, especially after the 16th. Outlandish, hare-brained schemes that have no practical utility could cause you to lose some respect amongst your peers. It’s a good idea to draw a clear line in the sand between your professional obligations and your creative or inventive quirkiness.

primal urges and demand that your partner does the same. If you happen to be out of sync with your spouse or lover, however, this may cause problems and could highlight the significant differences in your development.

TAURUS (APRIL 20 - MAY 20) Excellent Solar transits after the 24th lighten up your marital and relationship sector. For those of you who have only recently been married, the promise of childbirth and growing your family is on the cards. Venus, however, between the 26th and the 31st  may cause you some distress. On this same topic of parenting and extending your family, you may need to make some compromises. Right timing is everything.

GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 20) Religious views, the way you perceive yourself in relation to others, and your overall life perception will change dramatically this month.  Jupiter, along with Pluto, will radically shift your attitudes and make you aware of bigger and better things.  It’s as if you have x-ray vision and can see beneath the surface of things and people.  This could be rather surprising if not shocking when you start to sense elements of other’s character that may not have been evident before.

CANCER (JUNE 21 - JULY 22) After the 3rd and up until the 8th the hard aspect of Mars and Jupiter hint at the fact that due to these rather busy times, spending a lot of money

may be part and parcel of the situation.  Remember, you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money to make a good impression. Leading by example is necessary between the 9th and 13th.

LEO (JULY 23 - AUGUST 22) After the 6th  you’ll feel better about things as Venus enters your zone of family affairs on the 9th. This is an excellent time to focus your attention on family, relatives, your personal history and your own inner fulfillment. You’ll be able to create a safe haven at home and will be able to take more interest in the value of family life and the ones you cherish. If you’ve been way too social, it’s easy to neglect the ones that have stood by you through thick and thin.

VIRGO (AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22) Between the 5th and the 10th some excellent news is likely surrounding your work or career objectives. This may have been a letter, application, or a job interview you have attended and were previously unsuccessful in, only to find that there may have been an error or that the successful candidate hasn't worked out. Even if this isn't the case, it's not a bad idea to follow up on previous applications and interviews to see why if you were unsuccessful lost the position. so6ix.com | OCTOBER 2011

OCTOBER 8

After graduating from Oklahoma State University in 2005 with a BS in Hotel & Restaurant Administration, Jennifer began working as a wedding planner and started her own company, A Black Tie Affair.  After a few months of working strictly in the wedding planning arena, Jennifer decided she wanted to do more with her degree, so she accepted a job as a manager at Baker Street Pub and Grill where she stayed for two-and-a-half years.   She enjoyed the spirited environment and the numerous people with whom she interacted, but the hours of the bar industry weren’t necessarily for her.   So Jennifer began exploring other avenues of interest still in her area of expertise. This is when she discovered Glazer’s of Oklahoma, a brokerage for Fine Wine & Spirits.  She became a Sales Representative for Diageo and Moët-Hennessy, and she currently represents one of the best and largest portfolios with products such as Crown Royal, Captain Morgan, Jose Cuervo and Smirnoff.   In 2011, Jennifer received an award for Sales Person of the Year, and she has recently become the State Sales Product Marketing Manager. Jennifer said, “I absolutely love what I do. I am one of the lucky people. I enjoy what I do so much that it doesn’t even feel like work.”

Britton Stewart is a graduate of UCO where he received  an undergraduate degree in History and  continued to earn a Masters in Education. Britton worked at Cafe 501 for six years where he started as a server. Britton became intrigued by food and wine, so he took the initiative to learn more in this realm, which eventuated in him becoming a manager. Britton utilized his college studies to develop the training program for 501 that ensures staff has all the necessary tools and resources to become the best at providing personalized and professional service. One of the things that Britton loves about working at 501 is the opportunity to form relationships with the numerous regulars who visit. Some regular customers come to 501 daily, and others come weekly. Britton is amazed that many people still don’t know that Cafe 501 is a full service restaurant in the evening with an impressive menu and a tremendous variety of choices. Cafe 501 is definitely not just a favorite lunchtime spot; dinner is a must try. Britton is most proud of the great staff and team that has been developed and works extremely well together. Ask him what his favorite entrees are. He says it’s definitely the Coyote Chicken Sandwich for lunch and the Crispy Chicken for dinner.
