OU loses in a BCS game. Again. Bricktown’s tallest building propsed. Oldest Oklahoman died on New Year’s Day.
Angi and I hit the Oklahoma State Fair on Monday over lunch. We had two goals: 1) shoot something with Horseshow Road, the act at the OPUBCO Pavillion during the Fair, and 2) track down one of our honorees for the Oklahoman Spirit Award. More on Cheri White Owl in a future post.
Kyle Roberts and Paige Lessly accompanied us to the fair. Ryan Free, Events Manager for OPUBCO, set us up with accesses and the interview.
I’ve seen HR play at various events – from the Taste of Bricktown to the OKC Arts Spectacular. Over the 11 days of the fair, they are playing 32 sets, 3 a day. That’s exhausting. But they are talented and here’s more of them:
Today’s 3 Things You Should Know is all about how you can spend that extra pocket change.
For example, French Hickman and Jim Brewer are looking to sell – if the price is right. Both are major property owners in Bricktown. Read Steve Lackmeyer’s story in today’s business section of The Oklahoman to learn which properties you may want to purchase. Steve reports shoppers may want to consider property in “the Steelyard”, just east of Bricktown. You’ll also have to consider parting with $13 million.
Meanwhile, A is for Apology. Apple CEO Steve Jobs has apologized and offered $100 credits to people who paid up to $599 for an iPhone this summer. And then were burned when the company chopped $200 from the price.
Tomorrow, the Sooners host Miami. The Oklahoman today looked at ticket scalping and the word on the street regarding prices. How much? eBay prices range up to $600. By comparison, tickets for Notre Dame at Penn State this weekend are around $400. Last season’s Michigan at Ohio State game had average prices over $1,200. OU-Texas tickets usually go for more than $400.
One NewsOK user left the following pearl of wisdom: “If it’s raining, I’m sure you can get them much cheaper.” Thanks Jeff from Edmond, keeping it real.
Enjoy your weekend everyone. Stay dry.
