I like the sound of any place called Coach's at the ball park.

Coach's would probably be fine up until around 6:30, but you'll want to be heading to the arena by then.

It's all going to depend on your tastes in food, drink, etc. The closest eateries are going to be on the canal. You'd be able to eat/drink inside or outside by the water.

Absolute closest would be 2 Mexican places - Abuelos (on Sheridan north of the canal) and Chelinos (right on the canal, about 5 minutes from the Ford Center.)

Earl's Rib Palace - BBQ on the canal. Decent southwest style BBQ.

Bourbon St. Cafe - On the canal. Slightly more upscale than anything else directly on the canal. Decent New Orleans/creole style steaks & seafood.

Toby Keith's I Love This Bar. Yeeeeeehaw...decide for yourself if you can stomach it before a Rush concert. Very big, and decent food/drink.

Mickey Mantle's Steakhouse - middle of Bricktown right across from the ballpark, about a 10 minute walk. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

Bricktown Brewery and Tapwerks...mentioned earlier, both would be fine for a pre or post-concert hangout.

Zio's - Italian food about 7 minutes from the arena. Slightly better than The Olive Garden.

Sonic - On the canal, 7 minutes away. No boozin, but a fast-food legend in Oklahoma.

There are plenty of other choices in Bricktown that would be a slightly further walk around the Bricktown parking garage, including seafood, steaks and bar/nightclubs.

For just about everything you'd want to know about Bricktown...go to the following:

HOLD EVERYTHING.

A little something downtown called Festival of the Arts is going on all that weekend. It takes place about 2 blocks away from the concert at Myriad Gardens.

Art (paintings, pottery, sculpture, everything), bands and food glorious food everywhere. It's an outdoor event, so come prepared. Just all kinds of ethnic and traditional foods. Beer and other drinks also.

Holy crap is parking going to be hard to find that Saturday!

No matter where you go, I'd highly recommend all out-of-towners to get to downtown OKC as early as possible. Festival of the Arts is huge and Bricktown will be popping with people due to the Festival, Redhawks baseball and the Rush show.

Holy Tamale! It's going to be a total cluster that night.  wacko.gif

With all due respect, I refuse to go somewhere called Toby Keith's, Rush concert or no. Country music makes my skin crawl. I wouldn't mind checking out the Festival of the Arts. Otherwise, Coach's sounds good.

Thanks for all of the info. Okie!  trink39.gif
