Wheelhouse Pizza Kitchen

Wheelhouse Pizza Kitchen

Wheelhouse Pizza Kitchen is Oklahoma City’s newest by-the-slice pizzeria with a dedication to speed of service and quality fare. Featuring made-from-scratch ingredients and an upbeat atmosphere, Wheelhouse delivers the family-friendly fun and delicious food.

In this interview, Managing Partner, Michael Jones, talks about Wheelhouse Pizza Kitchen and how they combine the quality and service of a traditional restaurant with the speed of to-go ordering. From pizza-by-the-slice and boneless and bone-in wings, to sandwiches and salads, there’s something for everyone on the menu. Their menu features the “daily slice,” giving you the option to choose from one of six daily slices, starters, salads, 20” specialty and build your own pizzas, sandwiches and desserts. Plus, they are pet-friendly with hookups for dogs on their outdoor patio.

Wheelhouse Pizza Kitchen is brand new. They opened to the public on Monday. On Tuesday, they had a media preview event at 11 am. I came in early at 9 to do the interview and so I shot and edited this video in the same day. You may notice some other local media personalities in the video like Jack & Ron.

Mary James Ketch and Erica Bonavida at Persistence of Vision

Persistence of Vision

Persistence of Vision celebrates the emotions, sensations, and knowledge that remain after we close our eyes. The show at Verbode features the work of Fringe artists Mary James Ketch, Erica Bonavida, and Becky Arman.

Mary James Ketch’s paintings are dream-like distillations of everyday life. Her narrative work draws on childhood memories, family life, and the surrounding land. Her colors and lines are soft, inviting the viewer to be enfolded in their story.

Erica Bonavida paints large photorealistic images of fabric. Many of her subjects are vintage pieces with personal and family significance. As a result, her art reminds us of the moments of life bound up in the materials we touch.

Becky Arman explores color and form in her resin paintings. Her abstract pieces often call to mind water lapping the sand or stars in the night sky. They invite us to question our perception.

Fringe is a collective of professional women artists in Oklahoma working in a variety of media and styles. Fringe artists will donate a portion of all art sales from the show to The Homeless Alliance.

Verbode, a residential real estate brokerage, is located at 415 North Broadway, Suite 101 in Oklahoma City, in the TAP Architecture Building. Persistence of Vision runs from June 21 to August 23, 2018. Visitors can view the show Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. The artists will give a talk on August 23 at 6 pm at Verbode.

Deep Deuce Sessions

Deep Deuce Sessions is Oklahoma City’s monthly live music artwalk in Downtown OKC’s most historic music district. Walk, dine, drink, and listen your way across venues along 2nd and 3rd streets in the Deep Deuce District to experience hip-hop, singer-songwriter, jazz, rock, and pop artists showcased throughout the evening.

Held on every last Saturday of the month, you can find music at venues such as Urban Jonnies, Aloft Hotel, [Artspace] at Untitled, and outside the shipping containers next to Anchor Down, Bella Kitchen, and Wheeze The Juice.

All doors are open for free to the listening public.

This video was fun to make and I’m really proud of how well it turned out. Right off the bat, you’ll notice that this week’s video isn’t an interview, but a tour held by OkSession’s co-founder, Christian Pearson. To transition from venue to venue, I took a series of fun action photos of Christian and displayed them in different styles for each transition scene.

In a past video to show that the Deep Deuce District is more than apartments, I teamed up Localites OKC and Visit OKC on a pub crawl of the Deep Deuce District. In this crawl, we visited Urban Johnnies, Anchor Down, Aloft Hotel’s WXYZ Bar, Stag Lounge, and the Deep Deuce Grill. Not only did we learn about each place, but we got history lessons about cocktails and the district. Check it out if you want to know more about the district.
