OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A new 450-seat restaurant owned by country music star Toby Keith
is scheduled to open Wednesday in Oklahoma City's Bricktown entertainment district.
The restaurant is aptly named ``Toby Keith
's I Love This Bar and Grill.''
It includes an indoor stage for live performances, three bars, 12 flat-screen televisions and a 9-by-13-foot video wall atop a patio overlooking the canal. The restaurant is sprinkled with Keith memorabilia and features benches from Ford pickup truck beds just inside the front door.
Much of the decor is patriotic, and the restaurant's menu promises a free cheeseburger, fries and soft drink for any soldier with a military ID.
The Oklahoma City location is the first of five opening around the country in Las Vegas; North Kansas City, Missouri; Shreveport, Louisiana, and Council Bluffs, Iowa.
