DJs spin off some favorite places around town
By KAREN SHADE, 10/15/2009
Rob and Lynn Robertson are a busy couple. If you don't know them by their "real names," you may know them as DJ Robbo and Lynn K., the duo behind the successful Mixtape Wednesday dance shows, usually at the Crystal Pistol. Here are a few places Lynn said you're likely to bump into them — that is, if you know them by name.
Old School Bagel Cafe, 3723 S. Peoria Ave., and Elote, 514 S. Boston Ave.
"For years (Rob) has always complained that there aren't any good bagel shops around any more. They seemed to have disappeared after the carb-free craze. He loves the bagel sandwiches there.
"My two favorite places to eat would have to be Elote and a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant called Viet Huong (7919 E. 21st St.). I could probably eat their pho (beef soup) every day."
41st Street Plaza at River Parks, 41st Street and Riverside Drive
"My brother built Rob a 'tall bike,' which is two bikes welded on top of each other. This bike was created at the HUB. They provide bikes to people without transportation. We do a lot of riding down Riverside and have really enjoyed the new trails and the refurbished park at 41st and Riverside."
Borders, 2740 E. 21st St., and Gardner's Used Books, 4421 S. Mingo Road
"My son and I are always working on three or four books at a time. I have been working on the fourth book of the Jeff Lindsay Dexter series, while Rob likes to check out all of the music magazines.
"When it come to purchasing books, though, we usually head to Gardner's. I love that they have a trade-in credit program there. They have an amazing selection of books."
Nightingale Theater, 1416 E. Fourth St.
"I may be a little biased, having performed in several plays there, but I can say it is unlike any other theater in Tulsa. I think anyone who hasn't checked it out is missing one of Tulsa's little gems."
