Yelp Goes Local!
OKC Elites headed to Norman on Thursday to check out Local. The farm to fork restaurant, located on Norman’s Main Street, is known for their fantastic cocktails made with house-made infusions and beautiful decor, including ever-changing art provided by local artists. The restaurant also boasts a shop selling merchandise by local artisans and “Localville,” a supervised children’s area where kids can eat and play while mom and dad enjoy the seasonal menu in the upscale dining room.
The group was treated to fresh crudite and hummus, crostinis with house-made bacon jam, salsa made with Oklahoma cantaloupe, tomato, peppers and onions, a caprese salad and an heirloom tomato bruschetta. Manager Dana told us a little bit more about the restaurant’s menu and concept: supporting local agriculture and ranching and keeping everything as local as possible, right down to the honey on the cheese board!
Blake and Hunter Merritt were on hand to present drinks from their new line of vodka, Prairie Wolf Vodka. Elites sampled The Wolf (Dry Martini), the Dirty Wolf Martini, the Wolf’s Knees (with lemon juice and local honey), and the Thirsty Wolf (vodka soda). Elites were also able to sample Dark, a new coffee-flavored liqueur with no artificial colors or flavoring, which they plan to release this winter; it was quite the crowd-pleaser!
OKC’s Elites are a close-knit bunch, and the intimate setting gave them a chance to catch up with one another. We also had some Yelpy schwag, a few ticket giveaways and a bit of time to plan upcoming events and get-togethers for the fall. What could be better than such a lovely group of people, relaxing for a few hours at a beautiful restaurant with delicious food and drinks?! Be sure to check out all the reviews!
Until the next time,
