Oktoberfest beer review

Even though the weather doesn’t reflect it yet, it’s Oklahoma’s climatological autumn. In other words, Oktoberfest season. The Märzen, or March beer, is the seasonal standard. Rich in malt rather than hops, these beers — sometimes referred to in style as “festbiers” — tend towards the sweeter side. While three of these offerings are repeats from last year’s list as they represent the “Oklahoma standard” of Oktoberfest brews, we’ve also broadened our list this year to include both out-of-state and German selections. Read more in the latest Gazette. 👇

It's September in Oklahoma which means it’s time for the Oklahoma State Fair. Now in its 114th year, people across the state will be swarming to the yearly attraction, and for good reasons — the rides, the fun, and the FOOD. But in case you feel like skipping out this year due to the increase of the Delta variant or other inherently introverted reasons but still feel the need to satisfy that fair food craving, here are seven alternatives that might just do the trick.

Food Fight

“Having food be accessible benefits all of us.”

This statement, seemingly simple and inarguable, comes from Bridget Burns, co-founder of the group UNR, or Uprooted & Rising: Indian Territory, and one of the leaders of a band of local activists that set up and maintain a free, accessible pantry and refrigerator in Norman. The pantry and fridge had provided the much needed availability of fresh, worthwhile food, as well as providing cold water and electrolyte drinks to help protect against the blisteringly hot summer months, all in one easily accessible place.

But that changed at the end of July when an archaic city ordinance was used to push the fridge over a mile away inside the Outreach Thrift & Donation Center. Read more 👇.

A group of Norman activists is fighting the city to maintain access to free food for the unhoused.

John Darnielle, the singer, songwriter and core member of The Mountain Goats, will be taking the stage at the @towertheatreokc for the first time on Sept. 17. He will be supporting his most recent release, Dark in Here, his 20th studio record under the moniker.

“Interviewing” Darnielle was much more akin to having a conversation with a worldly, experienced friend who enjoys a spirited conversation. A voracious reader in addition to being a music fan, Darnielle ended the chat with a bit of news: his third novel, “Devil House,” will be released in January.
