My perfect weekend: Molly Martin
Co-owner, Antoinette Baking Co.
Molly Martin’s perfect weekend includes shopping for vintage treasures and enjoying local treats she doesn’t have to bake herself.
Oh, the places I’ll go ...
• Circle Cinema 10 S. Lewis Ave.
I don’t get to see as many movies as I’d like, but when I do, I always like to visit the Circle. Not only is it a nonprofit — they have courteous crowds and the best popcorn in town.
• Juniper 324 E. Third St.
My current favorite eatery in Tulsa, hands down. Just thinking about its Brussels sprouts makes my stomach growl.
• First Friday Art Walk 105 W. Brady St.
The monthly gallery tour in the Brady Arts District keeps getting better and better as the district expands. With the addition of the fabulous Guthrie Green, this is a happening that’s not to be missed.
• Stone Bluff Cellars 24145 E. 191st St. S.
Living in midtown, I don’t get to south Tulsa or beyond very often, but sometimes a sunny Sunday drive to Stone Bluff Cellars is both fun and relaxing. Pick up a bottle to go or enjoy a glass al fresco.
• Glacier Confection 15 E. Brady St.
Working in a bakery six days a week, it’s nice to let someone else make a special treat on occasion.
• River City Trading Post 301 E. Main St., Jenks
Looking for some vintage treasures or simply a stroll down memory lane? This place has never let me down.
• The Vault 620 S. Cincinnati Ave.
Quality gin. A spoonful of jam. That’s my kind of cocktail. A great, aesthetically pleasing spot for a Saturday night out.
• Central Library 400 Civic Center
This retro downtown treasure will be closing this spring (and temporarily relocating) for some much-needed updates. I’ll miss those tours through the nearly endless stacks of cookbooks. I’m a baker, what can I say?
• International grocery stores Nam-Hai Oriental Food Market, 1924 S. Garnett Road; Jerusalem Market, 6124 E. 51st St.; Euromart, 7847 E. 71st St.
No passport needed. Take a trip to Asia with a visit to Nam-Hai Oriental Food Market. Explore the flavors of the Middle East at Jerusalem Market. Taste the flavors of Russia at Euromart. All highly recommended.
• Tulsa Flea Market 4145 E. 21st St.
All the things you need, and plenty of things you never knew you needed. If you’re free on a Saturday morning, it’s a must.
