3pm - 4pm - Head to historic Stockyards City, a short 7 minute drive from Bricktown. District is well-known for its early 20th century architecture and décor, western themed businesses and famous steaks at Cattlemen’s Steakhouse. And home to Oklahoma National Stockyards, the largest feeder/stocker cattle market in the world.  Enjoy all the sights and shopping of the stockyards. Those that wanted could take a guided tour of the stockyards where you get to walk the catwalk, overseeing the entire stockyards, go inside the famous auction barn and learn the history of the stockyards. Tours last 30 min – 1 hour.

Or for those who are interested you can take a “Beretta drive” through the stockyards city with some good photo opportunities :)

6pm - 10pm - GROUP Dinner at Cattlemen’s Steakhouse. Opened in 1910, Cattlemen’s Steakhouse is legendary, known coast to coast for perfectly aged steaks and old-time hospitality.

9am – 5pm - FREE TIME to explore on your own, or in groups, some of the many things to do around Oklahoma City. Some of the attractions include;

• Oklahoma City Zoo – 10 minutes north of Bricktown
• National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum – A must see museum of Western history, art and culture.
• Several other museums within 5 – 15 minutes of Bricktown including First American Museum, Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Museum of Osteology and the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum
• Frontier City – Fun western-themed amusement park with an attached water park, Wild West Water Works. Family-friendly rides for all ages and concerts and live shows straight out of the Wild West. It is operated by Six Flags
• Automobile Alley – Cool little district that has lots to offer. Still has the vintage neon signs on original buildings from the 1920s when it was the location of over 50 car dealerships.
• Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill (enclosed patio right on the canal)
• Scissortail Park and grab a bite from The Perch or Spark to eat while enjoying the park. A neat park about a 4 minute drive from Bricktown with trails, gardens, and children’s playgrounds. 
• For the adventurous the Riversport Adventure Park at the Boathouse District has the most exciting adventures on the Oklahoma River including the world’s tallest adventure course- the 80 ft SandRidge Sky Trail, whitewater rafting, kayaking, extreme Air Launcher and a 700 ft zip line. Also has a youth zone for younger children and playground. About 10 more minutes down the river is the Wheeler Ferris Wheel, a 100ft Ferris wheel relocated here from Santa Monica Pier. Single ride $6 or day pass for $10. (Also could use some time in the morning before picnic/car show to take advantage of the adventures along the river.)
• Alternative to the Adventure Park could be the always fun Pinot’s Palette for a group painting session! Perfect place for some fun together, painting, drinking and having fun at an upscale “paint and sip” studio. We pick the painting- maybe the state animal, the buffalo or there is an option to custom design our painting- maybe our Berettas....😊. $35/person - 2hr class

5pm - Head to Thunder Valley Raceway Park 40 minutes south of Bricktown. It offers open racing at all of their Friday Night Fun Grudge events, where all racer are welcome.
If you’re looking for more of a relaxed evening you can go on a River Cruise down the amazing Oklahoma River. It is 1hr 30 minutes round trip $20/adult and $15/senior & child. Depending on how many people are interested we could get a private charter and save up to $5 per ticket.

9am - 3pm - Car show and picnic at Mineral Wells Park located less than 1 mile south of Guthrie (30 minutes north of Bricktown). Mineral Wells Park is a nice shaded park with covered pavilion, playground for kids, and restrooms. Around the area the park is known for being the place to have car shows. Catering for picnic by Boxcar Bakery & Ice Cream, Deli sandwich, sides, and dessert, premade box lunch.

4pm - 6pm - Enjoy a Cruise on Route 66 with several photo opportunities along the way. Head about 30 minutes up Route 66 to the Landmark Pops diner & gas station with hundreds of sodas (over 500 line the walls ceiling to floor) and a 66 ft tall soda bottle out front.

Just a couple minutes up the road is the famous 1898 round barn, the most photographed building on all of route 66! I bet it would look great with Berettas in front of it!

Depending on how much time we spend at locations we could travel as far up Route 66 as everyone wants to. There is an old gas station, etc. not too much farther up the road. If we make it back by Pops after dark the large soda statue glows neon at night making for a cool picture.

If interested and still hungry, there is a well-known place, with delicious chicken, right across from the Round Barn called The Chicken Shack. It has a very large outside eating area with several tables. And they often have live entertainment. Open till 11pm on Saturdays. (Facebook - The Chicken Shack)

9am - 11am - Breakfast at IHOP or somewhere else in Bricktown and say our goodbyes, until we meet again!
