This week we are joined by Becky Weintz, Director of Marketing and Communications, and Kimberly Worrell, Director of Development, with the Oklahoma City Museum of Art to talk about an upcoming museum fundraiser, ARTonTAP! This year is the 15th anniversary of ARTonTAP and it's happening at the OKCMOA on 10/19.
So many things happening last week starting with Stitch Cafe, which opened Tuesday in Bricktown inside The Bridge Venue! You may remember this is the rebrand of Okay Yeah, after closing their previous Film Row location. They will be opening a second Stitch Cafe in the new West Village building going into Downtown OKC.
In pizza news, both Sussy’s and Rock and Roll Pizza closed in Bricktown this week. Both concepts opened in the last year as reimagined versions of previous concepts, Nomad and Knucks Wheel House respectively.
In more pizza news, Empire opened up in new location today! Still in the Plaza District, they have moved into the newest building, right behind what will be Maples BBQ!
And finally news from up north, Industry Gastro Lounge is opening Monday up near Quail Springs Mall.
