I figured Frank at least knew better than this.
In honor the fact that the TeamPyro triumvirate is coming to Owasso for the Founders Conference I thought I’d try to work up a post regarding some of the things you could do around there even if you were at a conference.
Tulsa is actually pretty metro compared to the rest of the state and Owasso, being a proper bedroom community, isn’t far behind. I found this list of hotspots and, to my enduring surprise, discovered that there’s actually a Starbucks in Owasso, OK. Wow…now that’s civilization.
If you can’t make it to Eskimo Joes in Stillwater, never fear. The RibCrib has the best cheese fries in town (Er, do they eat cheese fries in California?) plus it’s a pretty good barbecue joint something which I suppose is illegal in California…environmental hazard or something. Cooking MEAT with SMOKE! The nerve! The good news is that they have a location in Florida so if Tom Ascol likes it he can get a fix locally. I’m not worried about Frank. He knows how to survive in the country.
If you are in the mood for a cheesburger type meal, catch any Sonic–no link. Just drive around a bit and you’ll find one–and you’ll likely be satisfied but the onion rings at Webers should not be missed.
While the azaleas at Woodward park are probably played out the rose garden at the Tulsa Garden Center should be fantastic this year. I didn’t see a map link on the website but its at about 21st and Peoria. There are also some pretty nice houses and things in that area—just drive around, you can’t miss it.
While I know Frank runs a bookstore he might need to find a certain book while he’s away from home. If I was in dire need of a book in that part of the world I’d go to Mardel. If they don’t have it they can probably get it. Plus, they generally have a delightful discount table. I once picked up Charnok’s Existence and Attributes of God there for $9.95.
I just now went over to TeamPyro and found this post by Dan Phillips. Seriously Dan, if you’re going to ‘sing the praises’ of the great state of Oklahoma at least go take some lessons. It’s a pretty good show.
