Sightseeing in OKC

Ivan and I left Jeff’s house around noon on February 23, 2010.  We wanted to do some sightseeing in Oklahoma City.  We drove towards Bricktown.  We parked at Sheridan and Oklahoma where there’s $3 all day parking. 

We browsed a few different restaurants to find something good.  We stopped by Red Dirt Emporium.  We grabbed a few flyers about Oklahoma City there.

We went to Abuelo’s for Mexican food.  The restaurant has a lot of lunch specials available from 11 am – 3 pm.  Ivan and I shared tasty chicken enchiladas and alright chicken fajitas. 

We walked around Bricktown.

It was once a warehouse neighborhood.  Most of the buildings are made out of bricks there.

We made our way to the National Oklahoma City Memorial.  It’s quite pretty and quiet there.

We walked back to the car.  Ivan drove us to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.   It’s filled with lots of things like guns, things from the rodeo and clothing.  There was a fake town that you could walk through.  It was rather dark in the fake town for some reason. 

We went back to Jeff’s house.  We chilled for a little while.

Jeff drove us to McNellie’s Public House.  It’s a bar that has numerous beers on tap.  Ivan had a hoegaarden while I had a pear cider.  We ordered some dinner.  I had a chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries.  Ivan had a chicken wrap with tahouli.  The sweet potato fries were really good.

Next, we went to Cock O’ the Walk for a glass of wine.

We went back to the house.  Jeff suggested that we watch a movie.  We saw Boondocks Saints.  Ivan fell asleep.  Jeff fell asleep a little while later.  I saw the whole thing and it was really good! 

So far we’ve traveled 1,561.3 miles on our trip.
