A Minute with Hopdoddy

Dennis here for a Minute with Hopdoddy. Hopdoddy Burger Bar describes themselves as “a creative, from-scratch burger and beer joint with a friendly neighborhood vibe.” I was invited to the opening of their second Oklahoma location at Chisholm Creek in Oklahoma City where I tried two of their burgers, the parmesan truffle fries, Oreo Milk Shake, and lemonade. All of which I have to say was delicious and I’m thankful that they had paper towels at the table.

Fun Fact: They can booze up all of their milkshakes for you. On the subject of booze, they also have a selection of local and regional craft beers to go with your meal. While Hopdoddy is in several states, they do source items locally, including making their buns in-house.

Now for the Burgers. Wanting something different, I ate two of their untraditional burgers, the Llano Poblano and the Ahi Tuna, with the latter tasting like sushi in burger form with an added crunch from the nori chips. The Llano Poblano had Applewood Smoked Bacon, Tillamook Pepper Jack, Seared Poblanos with chipotle aioli.

If you want something unique for a burger or a new burger joint to visit, consider checking out Hopdoddy.


This video is for a new segment I’m calling A Minute With Series, in which I’ll be doing short videos about interesting things to consider visiting.

Spare Tire

How To Put On A Spare Tire

Today I’m sharing an instructional video on how to put on a spare tire if you ever get into such a situation while having an adventure. Knowing how to install a spare tire yourself can save you time and money. I made this for a video contest hosted by CARDONE. Be sure to vote for my video over on their site!

To vote, go here and click on that Vote button. That’s it. There’s no need to sign up or give your email. Just press that Vote button. You can do it once per day until the contest ends. If I win, it will help me get the equipment to achieve my goals. Thank you!

Factory Obscura’s Beyond

My brief thoughts on Factory Obscura’s Beyond exhibition during their pass holder preview party on September 21, 2018. Factory Obscura is an Oklahoma City-based art collective creating immersive experiences, challenging the participant to physically explore full-sensory environments.

I’m working on scheduling an interview with some of the creative team behind Factory Obscura for Uncovering Oklahoma.

Oklahoma State Fair Food 2018

Yesterday, I visited the Oklahoma State Fair to sample some of the new and award-winning fair foods as well as hear from food vendors talk about their specials this year. The 2018 Oklahoma State Fair started on September 13th and goes through the 23rd. For a complete list of the new foods, read my story on Uncovering Oklahoma.

Ride OKC and AMP Fest

On August 25, 2018, I did the Cookie Tour with Ride OKC and then went to AMP Festival. In this brief adventure vlog, I share my experience with the bike tour and the female-focused music festival in Oklahoma City.

I’ll have a full story on Ride OKC for Uncovering Oklahoma in a few weeks. I’m wanting to get footage of one more tour, the brewery tour, that they do regularly. On the subject of what’s next at Uncovering Oklahoma, tomorrow’s featured video will be on the nonprofit art-house movie theatre, Rodeo Cinema. Then next week, I’ve been invited to attend a media preview of Gathering Place in Tulsa, which I’m super excited to see. Gathering Place will be next week’s featured video, showing it off before it opens to the public on September 8.
