Black & White Weekend - Maxxwells Restaurant Bar

Sue and I had dinner tonight at Maxxwells Restaurant in the Campbell Hotel at 11th and Columbia on historic Route 66 in Tulsa.  Built in 1927 it had shops on the lower floor and was the Casa Loma hotel on the second floor.  The building was added to the National Register of Historical Places in 2010, and was restored and remodeled into a boutique hotel and restaurant in 2011.  See HERE.  It has good food and friendly service.  Nice place.

Weekend Reflections - Building in a Building

The elegant Mayo hotel was built in 1925.  Here it is reflected in the glass facade of the very modern ONEOK building built in 1984.  These grand buildings are neighbors across the street from each other at 5th and Main in downtown Tulsa.

Thursday Challenge - Colorful Performance

While in Washington DC we attended the old Ford Theater where we saw a performance of Charles Dicken's "A Christmas Carol".  The performance was excellent and it was interesting to be in such a historic venue with the presidential box where President Lincoln was shot still draped in flags and bunting just as it was in 1865.
