An interview with the cast of The Meek

I spoke with the cast of the original play, The Meek, which will be performed at Yellow Dog Coffee in Norman, Oklahoma. The Meek follows Austin’s story as he deals with the psychopath (or perhaps sociopath) of a boss of a copier sales company.

Area fiftyONE at MAINSITE Contemporary Art

Today’s new episode of Uncovering Oklahoma features 10 artist statements about the Area fiftyONE event to benefit the Norman Arts Council. Norman Arts’ annual party goes intergalactic with Area as MAINSITE Contemporary Art is invaded by stellar art, drinks, and bites while live music thumps from live DJs spinning all night.

It’ll be a cosmically good time, and all proceeds have an astronomical impact on Norman Arts Council’s operations and programs like 2nd Friday Norman Art Walk, exhibitions at MAINSITE, arts education scholarships, artist grants, public art, grants to local arts organizations like Sooner Theatre, Norman Music Festival and Jazz In June … and so much more!

Sweet Basil in Norman

Join me on a flavor-packed journey as I hang out in the kitchen with Chef Sanchai Thespan, who prepares some of the signature dishes at Sweet Basil while Victor Pistilli narrates. From Pineapple Fried Rice to Basil Stir-fry, there’s something for every palate!

Girls Weekend Getaway in OKC with OKCU

Bri from Oklahoma’s Credit Union is back for an episode for an itinerary for a great girls’ weekend getaway in Oklahoma City. We start with a brunch at 30th Street Market, do some shopping in Midtown, make a glass flower at Blue Sage Studios, stay the night at Bradford House, and then end the adventure with a relaxing spa session at Purity Day Spa.

For the glassblowing segment at Blue Sage Studios, I didn’t do any editing tricks to speed up the action so you get a real feel for the session. With the constant instruction and some level bumps in the music, the pace flowed great, and I think people will be inspired to take a lesson.

Thank you to Oklahoma’s Credit Union for sponsoring this episode of Uncovering Oklahoma.

Just Put An Egg On It

I visited with Irese Harris, owner of Just Put An Egg On It, as she made a Steak Bowl. You can find this restaurant concept inside The Parlor in Oklahoma City.
