When I saw this sign, I knew I would like Oklahoma City. Garth Brooks Boulevard is to Oklahoma City as Boulevard Victor Hugo is to Paris.
This place is country. Shortly after I passed Garth’s street I saw the turnoff for the Will Rogers Airport.
You can never overdo a theme so I took myself to Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill. I had the barbecue chicken, with cowboy beans (black eyed peas) and the fried okra. I don’t know if okra is popular in Oklahoma because it starts with “OK” or if Oklahoma is named after okra or I just don’t know, it hurts my head. Food was alright but it’s a fun boisterous atmosphere and everyone was having a good time.
You know I wore my cowboy hat for the occasion. Although I would’ve had a better time if I was not self consciously hiding my feet for lack of cowboy boots.
