The Morning Brew: OKC's restaurant scene in 2018; Candidate injured in wreck
OKC's restaurant scene in 2018
Changes are afoot for Oklahoma City's restaurant scene in 2018. Food Dude Dave Cathey takes a look at new concepts, those that will close and a few that will be opening in his look at what's to come in the months ahead.
Here are some other things to look for in 2018:
Todd Woodruff is the principle owner of Nonesuch, but he's also the owner of Waffle Champion and Maples Barbecue. The latter went into hibernation just before the weather turned wintry, but when Larry Dean Pickering's grand offset smoker goes back into operation, look for it in a dramatic new location.
Sources tell me, Woodruff will move his homage to Central Texas barbecue to The Plaza, taking over the space previously occupied by Chiltepes.
Candidate for governor injured in car wreck
An Oklahoma zookeeper and gubernatorial candidate was injured in a car crash, the zoo reported Wednesday.
Joseph "Joe Exotic" Maldonado suffered a broken shoulder blade, two broken vertebrae in his neck and a fractured right femur during the crash, a spokeswoman for the zoo said. Other details about the crash haven't been released.
