If you go to Bricktown you're going to see country people and pickups because the whole district is designed to profit off of rural people looking for an experience of "the big city." It has been an extremely successful model.

People from Kansas, Arkansas, Western OK and Texas have OKC as the closest big city, and the packaged urban experience for tourists includes Toby Keith's and Bass Pro Shop, which makes them feel comfortable. It's smart business.

Go across the train tracks to the CBD and you'll see BMW and Lexus, go over the bridge to Deep Deuce and you'll see Prius.

On the other hand, if you want to experience the more dignified western culture of OKC you can go to the Stockyards or Western Heritage Museum.
Good points. A lot of locals don't like going to Bricktown for those reasons. It is very oriented to tourists and people coming in from the surrounding rural areas, or the college crowd looking for a dance club. Unfortunately OKC doesn't really have any other nightlife districts. There is a pretty good chance a district like the Plaza district or Film Row will grow into a more organic nightlife district in the future, but its not there yet. A lot of people I know drive up to Tulsa to the Blue Dome or Brady districts.

With the new tags I'm always wondering what county they are from.
Oklahoma recently started issuing license plates with a new month sticker. It now identifies the month by number on the left corner, then the abbreviation of the county on the right corner with the county's full name on the bottom.

My relatives in Bartlesville got a new car with the new month sticker that read 07 (July), WS (Washington County) and then Washington on the bottom. I also saw a lot of vehicles downtown with the same stickers.

Hey, thanks for the information. I really liked it when you could see what county folks were from. Glad to see Oklahoma adopting this new system.
