Now is the time to live in OKC. So much is growing, changing, and evolving right before our eyes.  ATB:OKC is our attempt to catalog, witness, and support all the growth and change happening right now in the city center and to connect it with the people who make this town what it is. While there are other great things happening all around Oklahoma, we'll do our best to stay focused on the urban core of OKC. If you know of something we should notice, tell us. If you're interested in partnering with us, let us know.


Moving left to right along the map from West to Midwest is a treacherous journey into new cultures and conditions. It's a journey I never fathomed I'd take, but OKC is home and I love it. I still don't know what to do in a tornado, but show me the food and I'll eat it. Pour me a beer and I'll drink it. Tell me a good story and I'll laugh and cry along. Teach me something new and I'll remember it. I'm making this town my home.


I've been converted. It wasn't too long ago that I had big plans to leave Oklahoma. Throughout my life in this state, I had always lived in the suburbs or Middle Of Nowhere, OK. I knew the city was growing and changing, but was so ready to move that the city didn't entice me; until I moved right into the heart of it. I've discovered that the city life I want is right here in OKC.
