Steve Lackmeyer fondly remembers when the State Fairgrounds were cool

Strange times are still afoot at The Oklahoman.

Over the weekend, the paper’s new woke out-of-state corporate ownership gave Steve Lackmeyer permission to do something that was once deemed unthinkable – call into question the decision making of the city’s Ruling Class and OKC Chamber of Commerce!

In this Sunday’s paper, Steve took a nostalgic look back at the old State Fairgrounds, and in particular, the Ruling Class’ long, ambitious plan to flip the place from a quirky destination full of culture and character into the sterile, lifeless, revenue-generating horse show complex it is today.

Not Satire: OK GOP to host fundraiser at Redneck Yacht Club

Give the State GOP credit – they know their target audience!

Last week, party leaders announced they’re throwing a “Boots and Bling” fundraiser at the Redneck Yacht Club.

Located in OKC’s growing and expanding Hepatitis District near I-40 and MacArthur, the 18-to-enter venue was recently ranked by SO6IX as the Best Bar In Town To Meet People Who Are Behind On Their Truck or Child Support Payment.

Organized by Edmond Civil War prepper Leslie NesSmith – and featuring special guests like bigoted State GOP Chair John Bennett, alt-right US Senate candidates Jackson Lackmeyer and Nathan Dahm, and the Carol Hefner-backed anti-masker OKC mayoral candidate Frank Urbanic – the party promises to be the right-wing drunken insurrectionist hootenanny of the year!

Oklahoma continues to remind the world that it hates women…

There are many definitions of womanhood.

For some, it means becoming a wife and having children. For others, it means spending 60-hours per week building a subterranean lair to keep the men contained when the matriarchy finally completes its hundred-year plan for world domination.

For many, the definition of womanhood is a deeply personal, individual experience that cannot be boiled down to one label. But no matter your definition of womanhood, there's one shared experience among us all: living in Oklahoma as a woman also means living in state that, at best, doesn't give a shit about you and, at worst, hates you.

TLO Restaurant Review: Mariscos Los Arados

It was sometime around dinner when I walked into Mariscos Los Arados, 5301 S. Western, and the place was effortlessly humming with hungry people just coming off work and, surprisingly, street vendors coming in to work, walking around to the different tables and selling their wares; I was immediately hit up for a few bucks by a kid selling candy.

But sweets was the last thing I needed, because my body absolutely craved soup, with its hot liquid base, churned in a large metal pot with pieces of meat and chunks of vegetables simmering within, perfectly cooked to comfortably travel with heated ease down my throat, deep into the waiting wading pool of carnal hellfire that is my empty stomach. I needed soup.

And, from what I’ve heard, Los Arados, known for their seafood specialties, has a more-than-filling variety of soups. Looking over the menu, I made a quick and decisive choice of the large Caldo de Camaron ($14.95) and, for an appetizer, a Camaron y Pulpo Tostada ($6.95) with a side of sliced aguacate, for my own personal tastes.
