Mulhall landmark Lucille's opens again
If you haven't received the word yet, a fully remodeled Lucille's has opened again two years after a kitchen fire forced it to close.
This longtime favorite of bikers and classic car enthusiasts has seating for 170 inside and another 170 outside. It is known for its chicken-fried steak, burgers and cold beer.
Brothers Chris and Don Harman, Mulhall natives, took over Lucille's and directed the remodeling project.
To get there, take Oklahoma 51 west to two miles past Interstate 35, then go four miles south on U.S. 77.
Shatterproof wine glasses on sale at Bodean
Here's a nice little gift for wine lovers. Bodean Seafood Market, 3376 E. 51st St., is selling shatterproof wine glasses by Govino. The flexible glasses are made from a food-safe (but not dishwasher safe), BPA-free polymer that reflects a wine's color and aromatics much like crystal. Cost is $11.99 for a box of four glasses.
McNellie's adds beers from Scandinavia

Collins has also introduced some holiday cocktails at Brady Tavern, including Dear Christina, a mix of Hendrick's gin, aged balsamic vinegar and strawberry preserves, topped with Domain de Canton foam.
