A Girls Weekend in Oklahoma City


Oklahoma City was the perfect place for a girls weekend! I had so much fun the first time, that I went back!

WHAT TO DO

Put A Cork In It
This small winery is located downtown, right off of the river walk. Come in to sample wine and have a fun start to a girls weekend. Sampling starts at 3 for free, $7 for 7 samplings, or $15 for all 15 (and keep the glass!). The wine is excellent and the service friendly! There is limited seating; therefore, there might be a wait. We did not have to wait the first time and we only waited about 10 minutes the second time I went. They do not take reservations. Put a Cork in it is located at 115 East Calafornia. This was my favorite part of our weekend and if you are in OKC I would highly recommend visiting.

Walk Along the River Walk
If the weather is nice take a short stroll along the river walk. There is mostly restaurants along the river so patio sitting on a nice day is also a great option!

Nightlife
A good girls weekend cannot be complete without some good music and dancing. We found the the majority of "nightclubs" had a cover of about $10. There were also some great bars that did not have a cover. Drink prices were reasonable but not many places had specials. One of our favorites was the Dueling Piano Bar.

Thomas Rhett Concert
The second time I went to OKC, we were going because of a Thomas Rhett concert at a casino near Oklahoma City. This was great entertainment for the evening and I would highly recommend a Thomas Rhett concert to anyone! He is a great performer and puts on a wonderful show!

WHERE TO EAT

Bricktown Brewery
Bricktown Brewery has something for just about everyone! For the beer lovers, they brew there own beer. For the non-beer people they also serve amazing cocktails (a great Long Island). There pizza is absolutely amazing and I would highly suggest it!

Chelino's Mexican Restaurant
We ate at Chelino's the first time I went for lunch. I do not remember much about the food but I do remember that they had a good margarita!

WHERE TO STAY


Marriott Renaissance 
The first time I came down for a girls weekend we stayed at the Marriott Renaissance. It was perfect because it was within walking distance of everything we did. The hotel was very nice and I would highly recommend it.

Bricktown Hotel and Convention Center
The second time I went there were some major activities going on downtown and a lot of the hotels within walking distance of downtown were booked up. We were pretty bummed until with found this place. Although this hotel was no where near as nice, it provided a shuttle to and from anywhere downtown with no extra fee. This was awesome! This would be a great option if a budget is in mind as well! They also provided a continental breakfast. Again, there was nothing wrong with this hotel it was just not as fancy as the Marriott.

My OKC girls weekends were both a success! I can't wait to go back and sample more wine at Put A Cork In It and enjoy the river walk on a patio. Until next time!
