Indie Tulsa is getting some attention, thanks to the good folks at Tulsa Now, who included a link on their front page and then followed up with a very kind review and a link in a newsletter that landed in my inbox (and apparently quite a few others!) last night. Traffic spiked from an average of 50 or 60 hits a day to more than 440. Thankya. Thankya vurry much.

If you’re new to the site, you can find reviews through keyword searches (the blank, unlabeled box on the right is the search feature); the archives; the category list; or the Table of Contents page, which should be more or less up to date.

I try to add reviews at least a couple of times a week. Upcoming reviews will include Tally’s, Vintage Holiday, Midtown Cycles, Ike’s Chili, and — if I can get over there in the near future — Gypsy Coffeehouse. I do take requests, so feel free to let me know about your favorite business. I can’t promise I’ll get around to reviewing it right away, but I’ll add it to my list of places to visit.

  1. When you say, “I do take requests, so feel free to let me know about your favorite business.” do you want those listed in comments, or would you rather have them e-mailed? I don’t find your e-mail address anywhere on the site.

  2. Just post a comment. I used to put my e-mail address on Web sites, but the spam got out of hand when I did. I’ve got a couple that still have it, but there’s no real need to include it on a blog. If you have a question or comment you’d rather not share with the rest of the world, just put something at the beginning in all caps that says “NOT FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION.” Comments don’t show up on the site until I’ve read them and approved them anyway.

  3. Okay, then!

    I recommend the following:
    Tulsa Barber and Beauty Supply – 3rd and Utica
    Nam Hai Asian Grocery – 21st and Garnett
    Mecca Coffee – 31st and Peoria in Brookside (in fact, there are a lot of great indie businesses in Brookside)
    Big Al’s Healthy Foods – 15th and Harvard
    G. Oscar’s Bicycles – south of 15th on Main
    Ziegler Art & Frame – around the corner from the Circle Cinema!

    If you’re looking for a guest blogger, I’ll be happy to write these up for you! Like you, I’m just fascinated with local businesses.

    I have a couple of other items, but I’ll send those under the “not for public consumption” flag. :-)

    Thank you for doing this! It’s wonderful.

  4. Oooh, I have a recommendation or two. I think you’ll enjoy these:

    – Impressions, 500 block of Main Street, downtown. Unbelievable sandwiches, salads and soups. Tom and Robbie will take care of you — and it doesn’t get any better than when the owner takes your order and prepares your food himself.

    – Phat Phillie’s, 12th & Detroit downtown. Best Philly cheesesteak you’ll have in Tulsa. Period. Nobody’s even close.

    I have other ideas, but this is your blog and I very much enjoy reading what you discover, whenever you discover it. Many thanks for your labor of love!

  5. Thanks for the recommendations. I’ve tried Phat Phillie’s. Good stuff, but I can’t give it the “best cheesesteak in Tulsa” title — that honor goes to Steak Stuffers. Thanks for jogging my memory, though; I need to get both restaurants on here at some point in the near future.
