The old downtown area around the Brady theater was largely falling into disrepair like the old downtown areas of many cities. Tulsa has worked hard to bring attractions into the area like the new BOK center, and a new baseball park to be built next year. A lot of new restaurants and pubs have started bringing more people into the area. The Blue Dome Diner where my son Luke cooks is a good example. The area in general is called the "Brady District", and is as they say, a happening place.
