Oklahoma City is one of mine and Chad’s favorite weekend getaway spots. We usually go to watch an Oklahoma City Thunder game and then stay to eat all of the good food and explore the city.
This weekend we went to a Saturday afternoon game and got out while the 80 degree sunshine was still shining bright. We walked around Bricktown, which is the little downtown community, and decided to stop by one of our favorite restaurants along the waterway. Knucks Wheelhouse is a super cool restaurant with chalkboard walls and old, cozy booths. They have sports playing on all of their TVs and have tons of beers to choose from. But, probably the most important thing is that it’s a pizza place. That sells pizza by the slice. And has the cheese bread of your dreams.
Since it had been a long week and we were experiencing carb overload, we went back to our favorite hotel, the Aloft Bricktown, and watched all of the March Madness games from bed.
When we woke up on Sunday, the first thing on my mind was brunch. Obviously. If you haven’t been to Whiskey Cake for brunch, you absolutely need to go. The atmosphere is so cool and creative, the food is delicious and fresh, and the french press coffee and mimosas aren’t too shabby either.
Weekend getaways are my favorite, and Oklahoma City is the perfect place to go. If you live nearby and haven’t paid it a visit, it is definitely worth the drive to explore the city and get away for a few days. Until next time, OKC!
