Craft beer bar and restaurant Oak & Ore hopes warmth, candlelight, breakfast for dinner, and nostalgia-laced dance music selected by Jon Mooneyham, host of the “Everything All at Once Forever” radio show on KOSU and The Spy FM, will summon Molly Ringwald to its ‘16 Candles’ New Year’s Eve party from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. at 1732 NW 16th St. in the Plaza District.
“We’re going to have a New Year’s Eve throne, party crown and extra special treatment waiting to honor Molly should she join us,” Andrews said. “Crazier things have happened in the Plaza, who knows what could happen.”
Oak & Ore’s ‘16 Candles’ party joins the Plaza District’s neighborhood-wide ‘16 on 16th’ New Year’s Eve celebration that includes live music by Porch Mice, Bowlsey and Josh Sallee, and the 5-year anniversary of the VDub Sessions music video series. Attendees wearing the Plaza wristband can warm-up with free hot chocolate all evening long at Oak & Ore.
The event is free to attend and open to the public. The brunch menu will be served until midnight and appetizers from the lunch and dinner menu will be available until 1:30 a.m. There will be a dance floor and a selection of hot toddy cocktails to help warm-up the night.
To honor Fowler Volkswagen of Norman’s long-standing support for the Plaza District, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Oak & Ore will play all of the Christmas albumsproduced by Fowler with Norman-based Blackwatch Studios, and the first album recorded in 2010 with Nice People, an independent record label in Norman. Mooneyham will kick the party into high gear from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Founded in December 2014, Oak & Ore offers a rotating, 36-tap selection of brews from Oklahoma and around the world, thoughtfully paired with a craft beer-inspired dining experience.
