No sign of Mayor Mick Cornett yet, but a few familiar city government faces have shown up.
City Manager Jim Couch, Ward 1 Councilman Gary Marrs, some city planners and even former Oklahoma City Public Schools Superintendent John Q. Porter are milling about the Purple Bar here at Nonna’s.
The crowd – about three dozen right now – is sipping drinks and trying out the contemporary gourmet appetizers spread out across the bar.
There’s cheese trays, chicken wrapped in artichoke hearts with an orange marmalade, Nonna’s famous meatball, Mediterranean breads, sirloin strips, pineapple trees and all manner of colorful treats ready for tasting.
I had a Sonic shake on the way down here. Not hungry anymore.
OK. Off to mingle.
