Justin & Katie Carpenter / Foolish Things Bar & Biscuit

Justin Carpenter – Owner of Foolish Things Bar & Biscuit and Foolish Things Coffee Company

Justin has a heart for community, Tulsa, and all things food and drink. He told Katie, his wife, on their first date that he wanted to open a coffee shop at some point in his career. That dream became a reality much sooner than he ever anticipated, three years into their marriage and at the age of 24. Fast forward to today, and the coffee shop has been open 6.5 years and Foolish Things Bar & Biscuit opened in Center1 on Brookside at the end of October. He wanted to explore the breadth and depth of what a bar program could be…cocktails, coffee, and florals with a food program centered around biscuits.


Katie Carpenter – Co-Owner of Ever Something Event Styling and Foolish Things Bar & Biscuit

Katie has a passion for connecting people through beautiful events, great food & drink, and meaningful conversation. She started Ever Something with her business partner, Taylor Fowler, 5 years ago and they met through Foolish Things Coffee Company, where Taylor and her husband had their reception. Ever Something is a wedding planning and floral design company based in Kendall Whittier. She brought the floral component from Ever Something to the bar at Foolish Things Bar & Biscuit…replace the bartender with a florist and the booze for the flowers. Katie and Justin have a 3 year-old daughter named Eleanor who is constantly keeping them on their toes!
