June LIVE on the Plaza celebrates Opening of Saints and Fanny Pack Fashion Show!
Work on your Irish accent, come out, grab a beer and celebrate! Saints Restaurant & Pub is celebrating their Grand Opening in the Plaza District during LIVE. The menu is comprised of traditional Irish cuisine with a fresh and healthier approach. You will see items such as, Ireland’s baked version of fish and chips, features a corn meal batter, or Baked white fish with roasted fingerling potatoes. Their Facebook wall has been blowing up from positive feedback from the grand opening. In addition to great food, Saints will be home to a full bar comprised of fine cocktails, beers and wine. Stop by and welcome Saints to the Plaza District! If you are lucky, you might find a pot of gold!
Get your celebration on and come to watch the Fanny Pack fashion show on the Plaza. For one night, the Fanny Pack will be OKC’s hottest style. DNA Galleries host the 2nd Fanny Pack Fashion Show!! Featuring handmade, repurposed fanny packs made by 15 different local artists, they have each handcrafted these trendy fannies into fabulous works of art. These are not your normal fannies; models will be styling fanny packs retrofitted with speakers, sewn into furry animals and whatever the creative mind made into a fanny. Not to mention there fannies are for sale, so you could walk away flaunting a fanny of your very own. Be sure to catch the fashion show at 8pm, and then the fannies will be displayed as art for purchase after the show!
In addition to all the shenanigans, grand opening and family fun, the Plaza District will host the assortment of live music, featured artists, outdoor arts market and more! Big Truck Tacos, Atomic Dogs and Kona Ice will be serving up some delicious goodies. Come and experience the awesomeness of LIVE on the Plaza. Enjoy the stores, bump into friends, meet new people, eat a taco, shop, meet an artist, hear a band – this is all possible in one central place. We love our community family and want to experience that with you. That is the rare beauty of LIVE on the Plaza. Check below for specific information for Plaza businesses. We look forward to seeing you there June 10th 7-11 PM.
