Neighbors, this month we step just outside our boundaries to visit the historic Henry Overholser Mansion (405 NW 15th St). We’ll meet and greet with refreshments, provided by our neighborhood Homeland, in the Carriage House, hear from our guest speaker Cayla Lewis, executive director of Preservation Oklahoma, and close with a tour of the mansion. Street parking in the neighborhood is the norm for this venue.
Neighbors, please join us at one of downtown’s great communities, The Hill. We’ll gather in the “Town Hall” (418 NE 1st Street), one of the newer additions to the community, for snacks and refreshments, and to enjoy our guest speaker. Please note the address doesn’t quite line up with where we’ll be, illustrated below.
Our guest speaker will be Cristy Ksepka from the Greater Oklahoma City Convention & Visitors Bureau, explaining YOUR role in our tourism industry. Yes, you have a role! Join us to learn more!
Neighbors, please join us at downtown OKC’s coworking and meeting space, the RSC@OKC Innovation Station. We will have local beer, snacks from Caeli’s Sweets, Eats, and Bar, and our guest speaker will be the Oklahoman’s Steve Lackmeyer.
If you’d like to know more about the Innovation Station, refer to our November post, where the director gave a brief overview of the space.
Neighbors, please join us for a special, limited engagement event this month, at the OKC Streetcar Maintenance Facility. We will get a behind the scenes tour and hear from Michael Scroggins from Embark. While the city is giving us this access, we are limited to 30 attendees, so you MUST acquire a FREE ticket via Eventbrite. To ensure the maximum number of our neighbors can attend, please only get a ticket for yourself, and only if you’ll actually attend. Thank you for this consideration!
Neighbors, please join us for our March social at one of Automobile Alley’s newest establishmets, Yuzo Sushi Tapas! Our guest speaker will be John Tankard from the City of Oklahoma City Planning Department.
Please join your neighbors on Thursday, February 8th, 2018 for our Annual General Meeting at [Artspace] at Untitled, 1 NE 3rd Street, in Deep Deuce. 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 2018 dues online by February 1st, will receive 2 free drink tickets. After the brief business meeting, we will hear from our special guest, Eric Wenger, Director of Public Works for the City of Oklahoma City.
Complimentary refreshments will be provided by our host, and a CASH bar will be available. And don’t forget, if you bring a NEW guest, and they join, they’ll get one of our UN totes (while supplies last)!
Neighbors, please join us at our monthly social at Joey’s Pizzeria, in Historic Film Row. Bring a friend that has never been to a social, and, if they join, they get one of our washable paper bags (while supplies last)!
Our speaker for the month will be downtown state house representative (District 99) George Young.
Remember that NEXT month is our Annual General Meeting, so make sure that your membership is paid up or that your subscription is active so that you get your FREE DRINKS (deadline is 1 February)!
YES!!! These bags are designed to last for years! They are made of PAPER and you can wash them in a WASHING MACHINE! However, and you knew there was one, DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE DRYER! A dryer cycle will definitely degrade its life. Let it air dry!
If you’re wondering how to get one, well, you should have attended our UN10 event! But since you didn’t, as of this writing we do have a few left. You, or rather, your guest, can get one if you bring someone NEW to a monthly social.
