Thanks to those that joined us at Twisted Spike last night, we had a good turnout. Bruce and Donna Sanchez, owners, were our first speakers, and told the story of how they came to be. Watch the video here:
Join your neighbors as we visit downtown’s newest neighborhood bar, the Manhattan, located “under the raven” (210 Park Avenue, Suite 150) in the central business district. Complimentary refreshments and cash bar will be provided. Our speaker this month will be Kelley Barnes from the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.
We had an excellent turnout at the May social, nearly 30 people! Thanks to all that came, but in particular thanks to our speakers. Anna Mains, owner of Dekora, talked about her vision and the origins of the Dekora brand. It was very informative! Watch the video below.

Join your neighbors at the April social, as we explore a diversity of arts and culture at Exhibit C, a Bricktown art gallery and retail space showcasing the work of Native American artists, Chickasaw culture, and of course, Bedre chocolate. Complimentary refreshments will be provided.

Join your neighbors along our western boundary in the up-and-coming SoSA neighborhood of OKC at ¡Revolución! Taqueria & Cantina — a taco and tequila focused, high-energy, late-night eats & drinks destination.
Driven by authentic Mexican ingredients and preparation methods, the concept thrives on innovative, playful cocktails around the 24-seat island bar and the perfect party-style patio to imbibe and indulge ’til your heart’s content.
Thank you so much to our annual general meeting host [ARTSPACE] at UNTITLED, our now traditional annual speaker, Steve Lackmeyer, for giving us so much of his time and attention each year, and our door prize donor, Lifesquire. If you haven’t visited UNTITLED recently, you should consider not only revisiting, but returning regularly given the number of programs they have, and this is not even to mention their new retail space, [HIVE] at UNTITLED.

Please join your neighbors on Thursday, February 9th, 2017 for our Annual General Meeting at [Artspace] at Untitled, 1 NE 3rd Street, in the heart of Deep Deuce. Housed in one of the neighborhood’s few remaining original buildings, the warehouse sat vacant for 30 years before being converted into the community-based contemporary arts center.
Each year at our AGM, we nominate and vote on new board members & make any needed updates to our bylaws. If you are interested in serving on the board or have suggestions on the bylaws, please email us. Members who pay their 2017 dues online by February 1st, will receive 2 free drink tickets.
After the brief business meeting, we will hear from our special guest, Steve Lackmeyer, reporter at the Oklahoman & author of several books about Downtown OKC’s renaissance.
Complimentary refreshments will be provided by our host, and a CASH bar will be available.
