After my one Friday class, I drove downtown OKC to have lunch with some co-workers. Unfortunately, they were detained a bit, so I decided to drive around downtown. I was very pleased when after making a random left turn I saw the following:
... the OKC Bombing Memorial. I have always heard how beautiful the memorial is, but selfishly, I never wanted to go since this tragedy occurred on my birthday. However, I felt that today was the perfect time to explore.
There was a parking spot directly in front of the entrance... it was perfect.
The memorial was absolutely gorgeous. It was so serene. The weather outside was simply perfect as well.
After I walked around a bit, I drove over to Leo's BBQ (featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives) to have lunch with Kimmy, Char-lay, and Ames (hehe, I love giving people nicknames)
I am totally a NC BBQ girl, but this brisket was mighty tasty... and everyone knows you go to Leo's for the cake. yum-oh!
After getting my hair cut/running errands, I came back to campus to do laundry and some major cleaning. I then went to dinner with M at Hefner Grill on the lake.
It was so wonderful to watch the sunset as we enjoyed our dinner.
M got a crab cake appetizer. He ate the crab cakes and I ate the crawfish that were a part of the sauce (my first time trying this particular seafood and I really enjoyed it!)
I ordered the blackened tilapia in a brown butter sauce with squash Rockefeller. So yummy!
What fun to check two restaurants off my list of OKC restaurants that I want to try before I graduate!!! Off to Dallas in 6 hours! Time to power sleep!
