Hockey has arrived in OKC!

Finally. Hockey players are back in their jerseys and ready to play hockey! I was beginning to think we might have to move to Europe to watch the KHL, which frankly is a fun idea and someday I plan to do just that. It’s on my hockey bucket list!

For those of you joining us in OKC this season to watch the OKC Barons, we will be sharing travel ideas, restaurants and drink suggestions for your hockey trip. Many of you will be drawn to Bricktown and while it has plenty to keep you busy, the MidTown has a number of much more interesting restaurants and local bars well worth your time. We will also explore a few hotels in the area, along with their bars – p.s. the Skirvin’s Red Piano Lounge is mighty fine! – along with some of the more interesting spots in OKC to visit while you are here. So join us on our little local adventure!

  1. Are the Barons any good? And is Nugent-Hopkins anything like the best player, or is it mostly just hyperbole?

      The Barons will be very good this year without a doubt, along with Nugent-Hopkins, but so will the rest of the AHL. Watching their preseason practices showed exactly why this young group of Oilers are highly ranked. Can they produce in the AHL in a long grind of a season? I think they will do very well, however I’m not betting on anything at this early stage until I see the team in action. 🙂
