One of the metro-area’s newest members to join the grooming profession can be found at Blades Barbering, located at 3711 S.

Local Dining By BLAKE AUSTYN

Dos Bandidos opened in March in the space that previously held Rusty Crane at 109 N. Detroit Ave. in downtown Tulsa’s Arts District.

On Architecture by ROGER COFFEY, AIA
