Friday Night in the Big Town: Oddfab, Heard on Hurd and Open Streets OKC

If you are going to do something, do it right.

We should all follow this philosophy, no matter the task or situation. Say for instance I perform kidney stone surgery tomorrow, I would do my best to be successful the first time. I should also mention that I’m not a surgeon and do not hold a medical degree. Still, I would bring my A-game.

This Tulsa man has the right idea. From NewsOK:

“Police: Oklahoma man hospitalized following naked rooftop standoff”

If you’re going to have a standoff, be nude, be proud, and be way up in the air so everyone can see you. The old school standoffs where the gunmen hid in the saloon are so passé. So yeah, sorry, I’m a standoff hipster. Some people are pretentious about coffee and art, but me, if you are going to be on “COPS,” you damn well better do it right.

Here’s a woman who knows how to handle her jealousy of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend. From KOCO:

Girlfriend, ex jump in river to see who man saves”

So a young man and his new girlfriend have a meeting with his ex-girlfriend who apparently won’t leave them alone. This meeting happened to take place next to a river.

The women begin to fight, and the ex-girlfriend changes the game by jumping into the river and yelling for her ex to save her. Now that’s doing it right, but not to be outdone, the new girlfriend follows suit.

The man chooses to rescue his girlfriend, leaving the ex all wet. What makes this even better is that the river wasn’t deep, and the ex-girlfriend was stuck waist deep in river mud, needing firefighters to help her escape. The girlfriend, well she didn’t fare much better. She hit a boat on her way into the river, causing minor injuries.

What I’d pay to have seen this. Probably about $6 or $7 dollars. Anyways, if you are going to do it, do it right.

Here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town. Read More

TLO Restaurant Review: Ingrid’s Kitchen

IMG_5297

Since moving to Oklahoma City in 1990, I have driven by Ingrid’s Kitchen at least once a day for my entire residency, but have never once stopped in to try the food. (I have stopped a few times at the hippie shoe store around the corner from it to stock-up on Birks, Danskos and Keens, however, but that’s another story.)

Now is the point where I tell you why, and at the risk of ruining all the positive societal relations that Starbucks has managed to accrue in the past few days (#RaceTogether), I’ve just never been the biggest fan of Germans. Sure, I love Klaus Kinski, Goo Girls and Einstürzende Neubauten as much as the next beefy Chicano, but, still, one of those basterds shot my father in World War II and, well, that really wasn’t too cool of you, Germany.

Ingrid’s was also probably one of the last local eateries I’d had even considered reviewing until esteemed TLO editor Patrick mentioned that it had been on an episode of Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, which totally perplexed me. Oddly situated in a residential neighborhood on the corner of NW 36th and Youngs, Ingrid’s is in no way a diner, a drive-in or a dive, but for some reason, Smashmouth frontman Guy Fieri still shot a segment there focusing on their Reuben sandwich, declaring it an “all-star,” adding that it should get its “game on” and “go play.”
