If you enjoy fine cuisine, as well as other well-prepared food, and/or love trying out different types of brews, this is your issue!

In our main feature, we shine the spotlight on Cleveland County’s growing craft beer business, which was fanned with the recent passing of State Question 792, allowing wine and all beer to be sold at grocery and convenience stores and enabling liquor stores to sell cold beer. That also meant local breweries that distribute could now distribute more high-point beer. In 2016, passage of Senate Bill 424 allowed brewers to sell their high-point beer to consumers on-premise, opening the door for breweries to have thriving taprooms. We think you’ll enjoy reading about some of your neighbors who have taken full advantage of these changes, which means you need not go far to sample some pretty awesome brewskies.

Foodies will also enjoy our Local Limelight column on Chefs Andrew Black and Rudy Khouri, who have set out to provide Oklahoma City metro diners with a new restaurant experience that is as different as the diners themselves. Culinary Edge includes three individual restaurant concepts: La Baguette Deep Deuce and Black Walnut (see related photo, this page), which opened in early 2019, and Grey Sweater, coming soon. Although each of the restaurants provides something different, they share the chefs’ commitment to pushing boundaries and being at the forefront of culinary innovation and exploration. 

There’s lots more inside that’s sure to inform and educate you about what’s happening in your neck of the woods. 

Hope you’re enjoying the cooler autumn weather. Salud!
