Broken Arrow PAC presents “JERSEY BOYS” February 18th

They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard and the radio just couldn’t get enough. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a different story — a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, “JERSEY BOYS.” BrokenArrowPAC.com

Mahogany Prime Steakhouse

When we make a mistake, we own it. We inadvertently mentioned in the December issue that Mahogany Prime Steakhouse had moved to their new location and opened. We were incorrect. They will be moving to their new location at 4820 E 61st St. in 2019.

They are currently putting the finishing touches on the new space which will showcase a casual and modern energetic ambiance with an expansive bar area. The updated interior will be welcoming with a cosmopolitan vibe for fine dining. There will be more private dining rooms for group dining, private parties or company events.

Visit MahoganyPrimeSteakhouse.com for more information and updates on the opening day.
