    This sounds great! Trivia night and grilled cheese? Doesn't get any better than that.

    2012 Plaza District Festival Celebrates Local Creativity
    Annual festival to celebrate a revitalized arts district and community

    Event Date: Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012
    Event Time: 12 p.m. - 10 p.m.
    Event Location: 1700 block of NW 16th Street, Oklahoma City, OK
    More Info: www.plazadistrictfestival.com

    On Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012, Oklahoma City’s Plaza District will come alive to celebrate local creativity with the annual Plaza District Festival, presented by Fowler Volkswagen of Norman. Participants in this year’s festival can enjoy live music, artist booths, kids’ art activities and a variety of local concessions. The annual event celebrates the progress of the Plaza District, a district once blighted by urban decay, now boasting a renewed energy embraced by creative and diverse culture.

    Along with Media Sponsor Oklahoma Gazette, The Plaza District Festival is proud to exclusively host Oklahoman artists, performers and vendors, making this festival a truly local event. More than 40 Oklahoma artist booths will line 16th Street, while local musicians and performers will be entertaining at locations spread throughout the district. The Everything Goes Dance Studio Stage will host performances every hour, highlighting the performers and students of Everything Goes Dance studio. Performances will include ballet, hip-hop, flamenco, tap, jazz and more! Live music will be hosted on the street throughout the day with performances from local favorites such as The Grown Ups, The Wurly Birds, Porch Mice and The Otis Watkins Band.

    The festival is proud to host OECU’s Kidapalooza, a FREE interactive art experience for children and families. Kidapalooza features a wealth of kids’ educational art activities, thanks to the support of Oklahoma Employee’s Credit Union and the Oklahoma Arts Council. Children can create four art projects alongside art instructors from Norman Firehouse Art Center, as well participate in painting a kids mural to later be displayed in the Plaza District. For aspiring performers, the Oklahoma City Philharmonic will present an “Instrument Playground,” where children have the chance to experiment with all the instruments used in the symphony alongside professional musicians. Other activities for children include puppet making, a moon bounce, Metropolitan Library activities, a free photo booth and face painting.

    Some of OKC’s finest mobile food trucks will offer local food, complemented by beer and wine. Beer tents will be hosted by district restaurants Saint Pub and The Mule, and wine by district winery Urban Winery. Proceeds from beverage sales benefit the Plaza District Association, to continue to provide these creative events and opportunities. Plaza District merchants will be open for shopping throughout the event, also hosting an array of art openings, live music and special events!

    Local artists Dylan Bradway, Amanda Bradway, Tanner Frady and Dusty Gilpin will be painting a 16’x 32’ mural on the west wall of Saints Pub. Visitors are encouraged to watch the mural painting throughout the day. Velvet Monkey Salon will host a fashion show featuring designs of 10 stylists on a runway outside Velvet Monkey and 8pm.

    Building permit today for the old Dye Furniture and Matress building just east of Saint's Pub.

    This is the building recently acquired by Mason & Co. of 9th Street fame.


    Permit is for renovating the restrooms and future use is shown as "retail".

    Does the Mule offer anything to eat other than grilled cheese sandwiches?

  12. #187

    Default Re: Plaza District

    While a few are artisan grilled cheese sandwiches, most of the menu is hot melts. They will offer soup, salad and sides of fries and onion rings.

We spent all our time last weekend at the Urban Wineworks location drinking and eating on the patio/sidewalk. Will have to try a sandwich at the Mule next visit.

    Question: Is The Mule open now regular hours? Tried this wacky idea of checking their website for current information - silly me, local restaurants have this weird idea that there is zero need to update their websites.

    No, they are not fully open yet.

    I follow their FB/Twitter updates and they are still working trying to get open "soon".

    Which sort of defeats the purpose of their (pretty cool website) that has a countdown to opening that is now sitting at 0:00:00 with no further updates.

    Thanks, Ms. Nation. But I thought you ended your crusade during Prohibition?

    It is reasonable to have a couple of beers and desire to eat food that isn't a carb / saturated fat gut explosion? Healthy eaters are allowed a few cocktails now and then.

    OK. Thanks for answering my question. Since I'm not a huge grilled cheese sandwich fan, I guess there's nothing at the Mule for me. You make a great surrogate.

    What's with the name calling?

    If you were looking to cut carbs, why are you drinking beer?

    If everything goes as planned they will be open Friday. They got the CA yesterday, getting ABLE today. I finally got a chance to look at the full menu today. There are 4 salads, about 10 sandwiches, sides of soup, salad, fries, onion rings and a massive beer, wine, liquor and cocktail list. I'm very impressed with the menu. We are excited to have them. They are great guys who are not only building a great concept for OKC, but adding to our community here in the Plaza. Hope you all will give them a try!

    Actually, your question had already been answered when you decided to give your very enlightening "Healthy." reply. It is that reply I was addressing (I sorta figured that was obvious considering I quoted it). And yeah, guess there's nothing at the Mule for you (darn).

    Oh, and the name calling towards wschnitt...... classy!

    How did a thread about a grilled cheese restaurant turn contentious??
