As many of you know, The Campbell id on the Oklahoma Historical Society’s register of historic places. The Casa Loma Hotel was opened by Max Campbell in 1927, and it was renovated by our owners and re-opened as The Campbell (in homage to Max) in August 2011. Renovating a building on the register can be quite a task. There are many rules that one must follow and everything has to be approved by the Historical Society. This year the Historical Society is having a panel on renovating historical sites, and the have invited one of our awesome owners, Aaron Meek, to speak! We here at The Campbell couldn’t be more excited for Aaron! What an honor to be chosen! Congrats!
It is June 1st! Number 1…where did May go? Number 2, new month means new First Friday! We are kicking off our summer season here at The Campbell with none other than our own Justin Cooper! Justin, who is the manager of The Campbell Lounge, is the lead singer and guitarist for local band The Fiddlebacks, and the are pretty awesome! Justin will be preforming this upcoming Friday June 7th starting at 6 and ending at 8! Better get here early!
As most, if not all, of you know Sir Paul McCartney played 2 shows at the BOK Center this week. We here at The Campbell just happened to have 2 tickets to the first show, which happened to be sold out, and decided we should give them to one of our lucky fans. The Linda Barton was the first name that was pulled out of the little pink box, and she was ecstatic when she got the call! Linda, and her friend Debbie, set out from Indiana to see the Beatle live!
When they arrived they checked into the Sky Suite, dropped off their luggage, and started their pilgrimage to Macca. Our shuttle drove them to the corner of Penny Lane and Abbey Road just in time to be seated. The lights went down and the music started. When asked about the concert they both said that it was amazing! The staff was told that he played everything from Live and Let Die to Helter Skelter. Linda had seen him previously and said that he was just as good, if not better, considering his age (he will be 71 next month!). After being picked up by our shuttle, the ladies returned to a bottle of champagne, and slept off the wonder that is Sir Paul live.
The next morning both of the ladies visited Spa Maxx. Linda and Debbie both decided on the Sugar Glow and Full Body Massage. After the massages they both praised Brett, and that their skin was so soft. The ladies were very happy with their experience. Linda said that her experience reminded her of the show Queen for a Day! We here at The Campbell were extremely happy that they loved every minute of their stay. We would love to have them stay again! We here at The Campbell take our contests seriously.
This Friday is the last day to enter the Paul McCartney contest! If you haven’t entered yet, you can stop by the front desk, the Lounge, or Spa Maxx and fill out an entry form. We have had quite a few entries, but don’t let that discourage you. We only draw one name!
Also a new First Friday is around the corner! On June 7th our very own Justin Cooper will be playing from 6-8 pm! As I am sure some of you may know, Justin is our bar manager, so he will bring a crowd. I would get here early! I am sure a lot of Fiddlebacks fans will be here! (Fiddlebacks is Justin’s band.)
Have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend!
We want to send a congratulations to April’s First Friday artist Chris Riley! During Chris’ First Friday performance, a booking agent for Tulsa’s MayFest was in attendance. She happened to have a last minute cancellation, and Chris is now going to be performing at MayFest! If you want to hear more of Chris he will be performing Saturday May 18th at 11 am and The Bartlett Stage! Way to go Chris!
Also we have a Mother’s Day special at SapMaxx! This week only you can purchase a $200 gift card for any SpaMaxx services and only pay $180! I think your mothers/wives would love to have a spa day don’t you?
