Last Friday, I completed something on my OKC bucket list— going to H & 8th! H & 8th is a night market held in midtown OKC at the intersections of (you guessed it) Hudson and 8th Street. About 15 food trucks crowded the streets with lines for food and beer zigzagging all over the place. Pretty much every demographic of OKC residents were there, including OU HSC students still in their scrubs, young professionals tweeting up a storm, parents with kids, and single people with adorable puppies.
But enough describing the boring stuff. Let’s get to the important part: food.
I had smoked sausage gumbo from La Gumbo YaYa and a POG (passion fruit, orange, and guava) shave ice from Huey’s. Loved both. I had never had gumbo before, and it rocked my world! The ice was also really soft and yummy.
B had pizza from Hall’s Pizza Kitchen (pictured at the top of the post) and an onion burger from El Reno’s Onion Burgers.
The scenery was beautiful (hello, new federal building!) and the atmosphere was rockin’. If you like what you hear, hit up the last H & 8th of the summer on the last Friday in September! (I’ll be there. That should be motivation enough.)
