Theopolis Social Club

From a desire to create something new, Theopolis Social Club doesn’t require a membership to gather with friends. Cami Engles, Leanne Wright, and Rich Sauve talk about this brasserie-style destination in Shawnee where wine, cocktails, food, and culture collide in a modern, eclectic space.

This is the second of three stories I made about Shawnee that I shot a few weeks ago. This video features a brand new lower-third, title card, and end credits. I originally made the lower-third for a sponsored video, but I liked it so much I decided to make it my new graphic going forward.

Visit Theopolis at 419 East Main Street in Shawnee or their website at www.TheopolisSC.com. Interested in a deep dive of Theopolis’ origin story and want to help support Uncovering Oklahoma? Become a patron and watch the full 30-minute interview session.

The Gathering Place Coffee Co.

The Gathering Place Coffee Co. is a specialty coffee shop in Downtown Shawnee that seeks to be a home away from home for the community by providing a space to meet comfortably and build relationships. 

Jamie Hembree and Josh Cotts share what visitors can expect my Uncovering Oklahoma story. This is the first of three stories that I have about Shawnee from my visit back on Thursday, September 28th.

You can visit this coffee shop for yourself at 415 East Main Street in Shawnee and visit their website for more information at gpcoffeeco.com

My patron supporters get early access to new episodes, including bonus content, like the un-cut interview with Jamie Hembree about The Gathering Place Coffee Co.

Lobby Cafe and Shawnee

My wife and I visited the Lobby Cafe and Bar in Oklahoma City for the Influencers Lunch hosted by Edible Excellence. Then we traveled to Shawnee to explore their downtown scene and to check out the hot air balloon festival.

My wife and I visited the Lobby Cafe and Bar in Oklahoma City for the Influencers Lunch hosted by Edible Excellence. Then we traveled to Shawnee where we spent most of our day exploring their downtown scene and then paid a visit to the hot air balloon festival. This video is a quick recap of how we spent our Saturday. I plan to follow up with more detailed stories in the future.

We had a great time at the balloon festival and I would recommend it to people. This was our first visit there, so we mainly walked around to get a feel for the event. There was a ton to see and do there, including live music, games, food trucks, wildlife expo, and more. Next year I plan to go back to do a more an in-depth story for Uncovering Oklahoma. We spent most of our time Saturday exploring Downtown Shawnee, which is why the part about the balloon festival is more of a brief mention than a review. We were also wanting to avoid getting heat exhaustion at this point as it was over 100 that day.

Overall, there are places worth visiting in Shawnee.
