Inspired by navajo's New Day Diary today:

These restaurants are not chain restaurants.  I have not eaten at all of them, but I have friends who have and these come recommended by them. Any one of them would be good for a Kossack Meet-up of any size in the Oklahoma City area.

Wow, this list is getting longer than I expected.  Oklahoma City and the surrounding areas has a lot of "mom and pop" restaurants.  There's no need to eat at chain restaurants here at all.

We have a large and very ethnically diverse population, and they all seem to be opening little hole in the wall eateries. Some come and go distressingly fast, but others (the ones I listed) have been around a few years.

And these don't even touch on the food trucks parking all over the place (mostly taco trucks - Taco Sibilia is my favorite... but if I can ever catch up to the Waffle Truck, that could change.) What fun it would be to meet up at a food truck (the waffle one, perhaps?) on a warm evening and bring a table and chairs (I have a 6' folding table...) and fancy dishes to have an impromptu gathering!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
