Lovera's Throwing a Party

If you happen to be out at Lake Eufaula or Hugo Lake during the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, you'll no doubt be thinking about tripping into Krebs/McAlester for some Italian food and lamb fries. From noon to dark on May 25, Lovera's Italian Market is having a shindig to celebrate the opening of its new cheese-drying room, which will allow cheesemonger Shawn Duffy more space to hang and age his creations. There will be a ribbon cutting at 3 p.m. and a pairings course about 4:30 p.m.

The party will include live music, Lovera's Italian sausage sandwiches, Hickory Smoked Caciocavera Cheese and Choc Beer on tap. If for no other reason, it's a good opportunity to give that sunburn a breather and get some fantastic cheese and sausage in the meantime. For more information, go online to loverasmarket.com

Pie on the Plaza

Pie Junkie opened a retail shop at 1711 NW 16 St. in the Plaza District on Friday. Cooking together for more than three years, Pie Junkie owners Darcy Schein and Leslie Coale-Mossman opened the store after establishing a strong wholesale presence in several of Oklahoma City's restaurants, including S&B Burger Joint, Pizza 23 and Coffee Slingers.

Pie Junkie specializes in Macadamia Key Lime, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Turtle Pie, Coconut Cream, Almond Joy, Kentucky Derby Pie, S'more, Tart Cherry, Apple Crumble, and BlackBerry Whiskey Buttermilk (aka Bird Dog Pie).

Store hours are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The shop will be closed on Sundays and Mondays, but open late for special events in the Plaza District like Live on the Plaza.

Can pie happy hour be far behind? Let's hope not.
