You can’t be a cowboy (or cowgirl) unless you’ve got a set of boots—and Space Cowboy Boots brings some El Paso flavor to its Nolita surroundings. The OKLAHOMA! gang know their way around these intricately designed beauties (perfect for two-stepping every night on stage!) and know it’s key to get a good pair. And they are in safe hands at this Mulberry St spot, with an extensive selection of high-quality handmade creations sourced straight from Mexico and Texas. Prices aren’t cheap, but the kicks and their stacked Cuban heels should be able to survive any run-ins at the rodeo.
Escape the city and get back to nature at Top Chef head honcho Tom Colicchio’s farm-to-table restaurant that sources its veggies from its own fully functioning on-site farm. Swing by for brunch at weekends, or pop nextdoor to Little River for a sit-down or takeout breakfast in the week. Alternatively, go in the evening to sample the main space’s grilled ribeye with charred summer beans or a delicious Riverpark Frozé in the Riverpark Beer Garden. As the cast of OKLAHOMA! found out – you just ‘Cain’t Say No’.
For those looking to get a true understanding of this era of history (and not the stereotypical Wild West setting seen in a John Wayne film), then it’s best to steer your steed in the direction of this Lincoln Square museum. The space is packed with permanent and temporary exhibitions that celebrate traditional craft-based work, and the work of the self-taught artists, including Outsider artists. The OKLAHOMA! crew enjoyed the antique carousel animals in particular.
