Edible Bites

Summer has officially started and I'm starting to settle into it. It really kicked off with the launch party for Edible OKC. I was lucky to attend the celebration of this amazing new food culture magazine that has been brought to our city. The evening was all kinds of perfection, I'm just hoping more summer nights can be spent like this. 

Edible is a national magazine with communities all over the US. The fabulous Jen Snow is the editor and publisher and the one responsible for bringing it to OKC. Once I caught wind of Edible I jumped into researching exactly what it was. I've had the privilege of getting to know Jen and learning more about it. 

"Publishing six times a year, our insightful features and stunning photography tell the stories of restaurants nestled within the brick and mortar buildings in our historic downtowns, newly cultivated farms, exciting artisans, talented chefs, baristas, winemakers, brewers, cheesemakers, home cooks, bakers, and beekeepers. They are the pulse of our community, fueling the exuberance that surges throughout Oklahoma City today."
Edible OKC launched yesterday, but first, a party was in order. The coolest folks, the coolest food, and the coolest drinks all gathered in one of the coolest spots of the city to celebrate Edible! The Rooftop at Plenty Mercantile set the tone for the night. Strung lights hung over head while I sipped on an Okie G&T and an Anthem Blonde while scarfing down a few two many bacon wrapped somethings and continuous helpings of artisan cheeses and pimento dip. 
A night can't go wrong when good food, drinks and people are involved. Big shouts to my partner in crime Maddie for indulging in local foodie goodness with me. I was in my prime and she happily let me be. 

Like I said, Edible is now live in OKC! If you are local you can pick up a copy in places like Whole Foods, Kitchen No. 324, and Cuppies and Joe. You can also subscribe to get it delivered straight to your door. A digital copy is also linked on their website. You may recognize someone familiar on page 4. If you aren't in OKC, check to see if Edible is in a community near you!

From One City to the Next: NYC Weekend

Today I'm leaving the district for a quick getaway to New York City! I have a handful of friends working in the city that I can't wait to visit! I love how I can just hop on the Mega Bus and be there in a few short hours! The East Coast is cool like that.

First stop will most likely be Milk bar for some cereal milk ice cream, then lot's of other yummy food can follow. I'm sure there will be plenty of NYC weekend instas to keep y'all annoyed. 
Here's to taking a bite out of the Big Apple!

Blog Break

Things are a little busy around here. Like I mentioned before the Tucker's are moving! Tomorrow we will break out of the suburbs and make the big move to Oklahoma City. Since I finished school on Monday, my days have been filled with packing and been surrounded with boxes. 

Please pardon my little break from the blog while we get moved and settled! The next few weeks are a little crazy so my posts may be sporadic. I promise I'll be back next Monday with a regular bites post!
