OKC Second Time Around chronicles a 50-year period in which hundreds of buildings were demolished in downtown OKC, the demise of Urban Renewal, early development of Bricktown, and downtown's recent resurgence.
We started this site as a way to promote our first publication, "OKC Second Time Around." In just one year, the title saw the first printing of 2,000 copies sell out, with a second printing of 1,000 copies to follow. With more publications coming in future months, we're now blogging about OKC history in general, with more in-depth offerings to be found at our sister web site, www.okchistory.com.
“Cooking is an art. Have fun with it,” is my motto. I believe in breaking the traditional rules and letting the creative juices flow. When it comes to food and cooking, that means combining a variety of cuisines to create an unexpected taste.
