Bourbon Street Café

Exporting New Orleans style cuisine to Oklahoma City, Bourbon Street Café (formally Jazmo’z) specializes in seafood, steaks, pasta, and cocktails. With an atmosphere great for both intimate dates and casual drinks along the Bricktown canal, Bourbon Street Café is a fun place to be for any occasion.

Huge thanks to Daniel Austin for providing most of the b-roll for this video. It was a huge time saver.

Bourbon Street Café is located at 100 East California Avenue in Oklahoma City. For more information, including menu and hours, visit their website at bourbonstreetcafe.com

Jazmo’z was part of my very first episode of Uncovering Oklahoma, which was about the Downtown and Bricktown districts. If you want to watch my original video from ten years ago, I’ve included it above. The segment starts at around the 8-minute mark.

In other news, Welcome to the Plaza Walls will premiere at the Tower Theatre on Monday, April 15th! Tickets are now available for $10 and proceeds will benefit the Plaza Walls project. The documentary will be available to buy/rent/stream with Prime on Amazon on Friday, April 19th.

I’m working on getting Monday’s Art & Victory show online, so stay tuned for that. Today, my documentary, “Yes! Women in Science!” is making its film festival premiere at The WIFI Film Festival in Topeka, Kansas. My wife and I are driving out to the festival tomorrow night as they will be showing the movie again on Saturday and I’ve been invited to the awards ceremony.

Deadly Repeat

An individual is trapped in a never-ending time loop with a killer and literally has seconds to live.

Alternatively, what happens to you after you binge watch Russian Doll or Groundhogs Day.

Chili at The Red Cup

Oklahoma City Chili

In preparation for National Chili Day next week, I visited three restaurants in the Oklahoma City metro that serve bowls of chili as part of their regular menu. For this story, I traveled to Flint in Downtown Oklahoma City for their Bison Chili, The Red Cup in OKC for their vegetarian chili, and The Diner in Downtown Norman for their Championship Chili. The chili featured from each place is completely different from each other. Not only do all of these venues offer bowls of chili, but they also feature it on other menu items such as burgers.

National Chili Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in February, which will be on February 28th for 2019.

Be sure to read the full story at Uncovering Oklahoma for more information about these places, including some recommendations to other places.

I’m planning on doing more themed videos in the future for Uncovering Oklahoma. It gives me a chance to feature older, more established places and to revisit places I haven’t been to in a while. After all, just because a place has been around, doesn’t mean that it’s not new to someone else. As for future themes, National Corn Dog Day is coming up next month…

Modern Haunted House still

Modern Haunted House

Hashtag Modern Haunted House Problems.


Featuring the talents of Brian Gililland, Pallas, and myself, Dennis Spielman.

This was the second of two stories we filmed on location at Factory Obscura’s Beyond in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. See their next exhibition at FactoryObscura.com

Somehow, the house also mysteriously placed glasses on me when it got angry. Magic! Honestly, I didn’t realize I had put my glasses back on in between takes. I also didn’t realize that I made that mistake again when editing until it was pointed out by Pallas when I was reviewing it with them. It’s funny and weird, so I decided just to keep in the mistake. It was the best take after all.

For future updates, follow Quarter Minutes on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube. If you love what we’re doing, want to see more, and before everyone else, join us on Patreon! I’m in the process of trying to schedule filming for Feburary’s stories.

Vacca Territory

In Yukon, Vacca Territory crafts handmade small batch Italian semifreddo (ice cream), specialty coffees, cinnamon rolls, breakfast sandwiches, scones, muffins, cookies, and more. In this interview, Mike Gray talks about the creamery and coffeehouse located on Route 66.

I personally had both a mocha and the peanut butter ice cream, which you can see pictured in the video thumbnail. They were delicious! If you find yourself in Yukon or doing a Route 66 road trip, give the whole building they’re in a visit. There’s another restaurant, Yocal, that I’ve heard good things about, but they are in the process of moving to a bigger spot in the same building, so there may be another story soon.
