All good things must come to an end. I guess you can say the same about the bad things, too.
Yesterday, the Oklahoma restaurant world was shocked to learn that everyone's favorite Italian place to never visit, the venerable Spaghetti Warehouse in Bricktown, was closing its doors.
"Wait? The Spaghetti Warehouse was still open?"
Yes, clever Internet commenter. The Spaghetti Warehouse was still open. This isn't an old blog post from 2002.
Sadly, it looks like we may be somewhat responsible for the news. We've occasionally poked a cold breadstick or two at The Spaghetti Warehouse over the years, and I guess the Ogle Influence finally caught up with us. Check out this blurb from yesterday's post about important dates in Oklahoma history. It was published an hour or town before the Spaghetti Warehouse news leaked out:
Creepy, huh? Whether it's getting us a new Taco Bueno or a Jessica Schambach bikini pic, that Ogle Influence is a powerful thing. I swear on my jar of Emily Sutton's tears that we had no inside knowledge the place was in serious trouble. Now I feel really guilty. If only I could control these powers. Then I'd be unstoppable.
Even though I wasn't a big fan, The Spaghetti Warehouse did have some loyal, passionate patrons. Naturally, they're upset over the news. There's nothing worse than having one of your favorite restaurants close. Fortunately for them, Oklahoma City is home to numerous Olive Gardens and Johnny Carino's for their future dining adventures.
