I like to read a lot so I am a big fan of Commonplace Books in Midtown. Also, I love a good coffee table book and they have a great selection of those!

 E A T 
I'm going to have to give two here. My favorite place to eat in Oklahoma City is Red PrimeSteak in Automobile Alley. Steak is my all time favorite food and no one beats the vibe they set. On a more daily basis I really love going to The Parlor, specifically Mob Grill.

 P L A Y 
A new place that just opened up down the street in Deep Deuce called Flower and Flour. It's an awesome coffee shop and bakery that's connected with a flower shop. It's a great spot to grab a snack and get some caffeine to keep the day moving!
