After the pullover scare, we stopped for lunch when we hit Oklahoma City. I was surprised to hear from a local that it’s the 3rd largest city in the U.S. square mileage wise. Hmm.
I Yelped vegan, gluten-free restaurants and found a fab place that led us to a shopping center that looks a lot like North Hills in Raleigh. High-end.
Too bad the restaurant was closed, per a vague note on the door that seemed to indicate a temporary shut down.
Yelp found us the Republic GastroPub in the same shopping center so we hit that up.
Along with a chickpea burger and turkey burger my husband and I ordered (to share), he ask for his standard: hot sauce, please.
The bartender brought us three. Funny. Can you tell we are getting closer to Texas? Is hot sauce popular here, too?

They also had an absurd number of beer bottles on the wall. There were essentially 2 walls with the bottles on display. Want to take a guess on how many they had total? (Put your guess in the comments below, and I can reply with the answer!)
How many bottles of beer on the wall???
By this time, the Corolla was feeling ultra cramped and my husband’s back the same along with it. He indicated he needed a massage so we found a spot in a nearby mall with chair massage.
Ironically, it was staffed by all Asians.
As you can see here, my Asian got an Asian massage. Hah.
Guess things were turning out “A”-okay in OK…in more than one way.

Oh, final stop in the mall before hitting the road. We need ice cream!
They have a gelato shop!

Turned out it was as good as our favorite one in Chapel Hill. Props to them.
See you in the next State!
