First and foremost, for 5 bucks you can enjoy an evening at the ballpark watching the Oklahoma City Redhawks. Of course, it would have been much nicer if we weren't sitting in the middle of a ridiculous heat wave...but what can ya do? It was a good time anyways.
We were literally the only people in the grass section until an usher came and told us we didn't need to bake in the sun with so many seats open.
And while you're down in Bricktown, get some New York style pizza and garlic knots from Falcone's Pizzeria & Deli. The pizza wasn't my favorite (Nathaniel loved it), but the knots...oh dear...crunchy on the outside and melt-in-the-mouth on the inside, and of course, hello garlic!
Of course, I can't forget...Nathaniel works at the Bricktown Water Taxi. I must admit, I've never been on his tour, but rumor has it he sings this song for his guests:
I love my Cuban. :)
He'd also love if you left him some tips for the lovely song...
All that time on the boat has left him with a real good taaaan.
If you make your way down to Norman, you'd naturally have to tour OU's campus, and after you've worked up an appetite, you could hit up one of two delicious Mexican joints:
Pepe Delgados is right across from campus in Campus Corner. Unfortunately, we had to order the chips as a side, but the chips were thick and fresh and came with three different types of salsa. The salsa wasn't very impressive, but once our food came, I was already excited for a second visit.
Quesadilla from Pepe's...holy-crap-good. Have you ever seen a quesadilla like that?! Oh, and salsa!
Tarahumaras wasn't quite as close to campus, and the prices were a little high. They made up for it with large proportions (even for the lunch menu), fabulous beans and rice, perfect salsa, and complimentary chips, salsa, nacho cheese, tortillas, and sopaipillas.
One of two of my giant chicken flautas from Tarahumaras. The beans and rice were good, too, apparently.
I love Oklahoma. I won't force Hugh Jackman's beautiful voice and face on you this time, though -- I'd hate to get that stuck in your head, too.
Wal Mart is still Wal Mart, even in Oklahoma...how comforting:
Alright...who stole the brown egg?!
