STARLIGHT SUPPER: PICNIC

Tickets for this year's Starlight Supper: Picnic go on sale tomorrow at 10am. Traditionally, this event sells out fast. So set your reminders and refresh the Eventbrite page tomorrow morning to secure your spot at Downtown Oklahoma City Initiative's annual fundraiser.

  In lieu of our traditional communal dinner, guests are invited to bring their best blankets, pillows, and lawn chairs and enjoy a packaged picnic curated by some of the best chefs in OKC along with live music. The dinner will be held on Thursday, May 13 in the heart of downtown at Kerr Park, complemented by live music, and illuminated by the event’s signature sparkling lights.

Each picnic-for-two box will include 6 courses of savory and sweet bites along with a selection of wine and bubbles. Purchase your ticket for two and enjoy your picnic on the lawn. All proceeds from the event will benefit Downtown Oklahoma City Initiatives, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to foster an environment of creativity and culture through public art and activation.
Purchase your tickets tomorrow and join us on May 13 for a socially-distanced night under the stars.

When it comes time to shopping, it depends what I am hunting for. If it's gifts for family and friends, you can find me at Commonplace Books. Plenty Mercantile is the spot I find myself often when I am looking for something curated and unique for that special someone. 

 E A T 
My favorite place to eat currently is Broadway 10 in Automobile Alley. Be it a fancy prospective customer lunch, or a celebration lunch for someone I work with, or a date night with my smoking hot wife Erin, we can always count on Broadway 10 to deliver. I’m also really enjoying Magasin Table here in Automobile Alley at the 8th Street Marketplace. Tasty and quick lunch spot. Stop by and tell Leon hi!

 P L A Y 
When not working or hanging with the fam, you can for sure find me hiding out in Nic’s Diner and Lounge basement (shhhhh), or browsing the new disc golf supplies at Chill Dispensary, or on any of the local disc golf parks here in OKC!
