Sad news in Oklahoma Pretty. The Prohibition Room is closing today.
For those not local The Prohibition Room is a restaurant/bar located in the historic Gold Dome near 23rd and Classen. While I was never what you would call a regular I did enjoy the times I went (most notably after Biting The Apple) so when I had the chance to say goodbye the other night I jumped at it.
I have always loved the Gold Dome. I remember going there with my mom as a child when it was a bank and staring at the ceiling. I read once that due to the unique structure clouds would actually form in the dome but I never saw this myself.
I wore black knee highs with purple tops. I bought them off Ebay and they are from China so I have no idea who made them. They are very comfy though and stay up really well. I didn’t have to pull them up once.
And when I was out and about:
And because I really wish you could see what I saw as a child, the inside of the dome.
While it is sad that the Prohibition Room will be no more the dome itself, once scheduled for demolition (We do that here with all the cool stuff), appears to be safe. I hope it is because it is unique and holds worlds of wonder and should be preserved.
