Christmas Light Displays Around Oklahoma 2022

There are a lot of places to go and celebrate Christmas around Oklahoma. No matter where you are in the state, you can find a light display. Check the websites for special events going on while the lights are on, some have train rides, or have vendors selling hot chocolate and food. Also be prepared to sit in traffic, I used to love visiting the Yukon lights, there was one year when Mae was little that we visited over 20 times. Not now, 1 trip is enough, just too many people. I haven’t been to Chickasha in years because of the same issue. Try to visit some of the light displays in other parts of the state, Woodward and Kingfisher have been great without the crowds. There is also the world’s largest Christmas tree is on display in Enid, I haven’t been, so I don’t know if there’s more than just the tree or if there are other activities as well.

Food Friday: Coffee Jerks

Since the new family thing is coffee, I’ve been keeping a list of new places to try. I present them to the family when we’re all together. This last visit home for Mae she decided to try Coffee Jerks. We’re close to the Yukon location, so that’s where we went.

I was surprised that we were the only people there at 9a on a Saturday morning but I like when a place isn’t too busy. We all ordered quickly and sat in the cute area they have made to mimic sitting outside. I got a Caramel Creek frappe while Big K got a Snickers frappe, Mae went the warm route and had a plain mocha. We also got some breakfast, I got the stuffed waffle while Big K just went with a plain sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit, once again Mae had to be different and got an apple Danish. My frappe was really good, with globs of caramel at the bottom of the cup. I really enjoyed the stuffed waffle, it had egg, cheese, and sausage stuffed inside a waffle. I could easily dunk it in the syrup that came with it. Big K liked everything he had as well, and Mae was happy with the Danish as it was warm with a touch of cinnamon.

I’m excited to add Coffee Jerks to my list of regular places to get breakfast. The service and food was outstanding. I also loved the seating area, we could just sit and talk, great way to start the day. Coffee Jerks has been in business since 2017 and now have 3 locations in the north and west Oklahoma City metro area. I give the 5 strips of bacon.

Address: 2820 NW 122nd. St., Oklahoma City; 17784 N MacArthur Blvd., Deer Creek-Edmond; 825 E Main St. Unit 125, Yukon.

Food Friday: Spark

I found a great new place for burgers here in Oklahoma City last Saturday, plus afterward you can enjoy Scissortail Park. Spark opened a year ago at the north end of Scissortail Park. Even though this is in a city park it’s owned by The Social Order Dining Collective, the same group that owns Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. I had heard through different sources that they had a good burger, so we stopped to try it.

It was a nice Saturday to go to the park, so we strolled through flowers to the small building that contains the restaurant. We were there right at the end of the lunch crowd, so we ordered quickly and found a good seat. At the counter you give them your phone number and they text when your order is ready, so you can sit inside or out in the park. Didn’t take too long for me to get that text, so we could try our food. For my first visit I tried the BLC Spark burger, a perfect burger patty with bacon, crispy fried cheddar cheese slice, thick pickles, pimento cheese, and prairie ranch. This was an awesome burger, so much flavor. I wasn’t expecting it to be that good but wow. The fried cheese slice gave it a crunch that was different. The tang that came from the mix of pimento cheese and ranch was also surprisingly good. It was also a good size burger, not small. Big K got the same burger that I did but Miss Mae got a corndog. It was a footlong Schwab dog coated in cornbread, she said it was good, tasted like a fair corndog. We also got to share bacon cheese fries and pink fries. The bacon cheese fries were really good, the cheese sauce had a nice flavor and the bacon was crisp. The pink fries were really good, the pink is an aioli that has a nice tang to it with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. I really liked the pink fries the best, better than I was expecting.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by just how good everything was, just wasn’t expecting anything this good in a park. This really is one of the best burgers in the Oklahoma City metro. The service was great as well and the employees were friendly. Afterward we walked around and looked at more of the fall flowers blooming along the sidewalks. It was an enjoyable trip. I give them 5 slices of bacon.

Address: 300 Oklahoma City Blvd., Oklahoma City.

Food Friday: Haydeh’s Bistro

I am a big fan of Greek and Mediterranean food, so I was interested when I saw a new place pop up on Hefner Road just west of Rockwell. After a couple of visits, it’s now one of my favorite places for a gyro in the OKC metro.

This is a small family run restaurant that opened just a few months ago, its location is hard to overlook. In a small strip mall near a gymnastics training center, the parking lot looks busy because of the parents at the gym. They have a basic Mediterranean menu, with salads, gyros, falafels, and kebobs. I have gotten the gyro meal every time, so far. The pita is filled with gyro meat, onions, tomatoes, black olives, and feta cheese. It’s just the right size to pick up and eat, not too big. The meal comes with a side of either tater tots or fries, I have tried both and they were good. I finish off the meal with dark chocolate baklava. I love regular baklava, so putting a topping of dark chocolate on it is an extra special treat.

Overall I feel that this is a hidden gem in Oklahoma City, I know more will discover it. The service is great and the restaurant always clean. I will give them 5 strips of bacon with that dark chocolate baklava.

Address: 7202 W Hefner Rd., Oklahoma City.
