John Belt has bought the former Paseo Plunge/Spaghetti Factory on Paseo, according to this story in The Oklahoman.
Belt’s plan for the 30,000 square foot building, which has not been updated since 1962, were not disclosed in the article. Belt now owns virtually every property along the street.
IMHO, whatever he does will be better for the neighborhood than having that hulking and dilapidated place glooming over the rest of the now-vital arts district. Say what you will about John, but he’s been the man who was willing to put his money up to make things go for decades in the Paseo district and we all benefit from his foresight and willingness to hang in there.

R.I.P. G-Spot

Just heard from reliable source that Isis and Galileo’s on Paseo have closed the doors forever. I can’t say how sad this is for me because those places and people have been a big part of my life for a very long time. I think it’s also a big blow to the Paseo community because the G-Spot was such an important part of First Friday and the annual Paseo Fest. Sandy, Tina, Vet … Love you guys and hope it works out well for you after this tough time.

Joy Reed Belt’s gallery will be showing the work of Michi Susan Friday evening at the Art at the Elms First Friday gallery opening on the Paseo. The thumbnail photo here is of a 40″X30″ mixed media piece, “Wind Song 402-08″, that was in the online invitation to the event. With the weather expected to be very mild for February, I hope to see you all there. I don’t know what else is going on Friday night, but if I stumble upon who is playing at VZDs, Red Cup, Galileo’s or some other place I’m likely to go, I’ll update. I’m too lazy to search their sites right now. If someone else already knows, leave a comment with a link, will ya? Continue reading
