Wood Willow Art Moves Performance

In collaboration with Humankind Hospitality and the Oklahoma City Arts Council, I recorded a live-performance of Wood Willow outside OSO Paseo in Oklahoma City for Art Moves. Art Moves is an Arts Council OKC initiative that provides free arts events in downtown OKC each workday from Noon-1:00, however, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the format has changed to streaming for social distancing and to let people stay inside.

If you like live-streamed concerts, be sure to check out the awesome people at Ponyboy and Factory Obscura for more shows. Want to know more about OSO Paseo? Here’s my story I did on them shortly after they opened.

Thank you for watching and thanks to my supporters on Patreon for helping to make Uncovering Oklahoma possible, especially during this time! This video is going to be last with Art Moves for the time being as they’ve shifted to having the artists stream at their own homes.

Sergio’s Italian Bistro

Doing traditional Italian dishes with a personal twist, Sergio’s Italian Bistro offers fresh food in Downtown Norman, making sure every item is different from everybody else.

As we stay home to stop the spread of COVID-19, Sergio’s Italian Bistro now offers evening delivery in Norman, curbside service, and online delivery through Postmates, Grubhub, Uber Eats, or Doordash. For the latest news and offers, visit Sergio’s Facebook page.

I filmed this story before the pandemic hit the state. I had planned to go back and get some b-roll of the cocktails, but that’s when dinning rooms got shut down. This was the last story I had saved. Website traffic has plummeted as people aren’t/can’t go out. I’ll be doing articles to keep things going and maybe a video when possible or appropriate. I’ll be figuring things out on a day by day basis as that’s all I can do.

You can visit Sergio’s Italian Bistro at 104 East Gray Street in Norman or online at SergiosItalianBistro.com

Susan Herndon & The Bella Counsel Art Moves Performance

In collaboration with 84 Hospitality and the Oklahoma City Arts Council, I recorded a live-performance of Susan Herndon & The Bella Counsel inside Empire Slice House in Oklahoma City’s Plaza District for Art Moves. Art Moves is an Arts Council OKC initiative that provides free arts events in downtown OKC each workday from Noon-1:00, however, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the format has changed to streaming to promote social distancing and to let people stay inside.

Chase and Emily McCumber Art Moves Show

In collaboration with Humankind Hospitality and the Oklahoma City Arts Council, I recorded a live-performance of Chase and Emily McCumber outside Picasso Cafe in Oklahoma City for Art Moves. Art Moves is an Arts Council OKC initiative that provides free arts events in downtown OKC each workday from Noon-1:00, however, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the format has changed to streaming for social distancing.

Embedded above is the edited version, which has some fancier angle changes, audio/color balancing, different lower-thirds, and other minor improvements.

I’ll be recording the live shows when my schedule allows me to help. Enjoy the first performance!

Yellow Dog Coffee & Okie Baking Co

Co-housed together in Downtown Norman, Okie Baking Co, and Yellow Dog Coffee complement each other to provide tasty treats and drinks. Robert Wilson from Yellow Dog Coffee and Shannon Hanchett from Okie Baking Co talk about their origin stories, their passions, and what they offer.

Visit them at 109 East Tonhawa Street (facing Jones Avenue) in Norman. Parking Tip: The best place to park your car is a little south, in front of The Foundry on Jones Avenue, where there are stips of free parking. Don’t park in front of the building on Tonhawa as that’s reserved for a law firm housed there. 

Learn more about Yellow Dog Coffee at www.yellowdogcoffeecompany.com and Okie Baking Co at www.okiebakingco.com

I filmed this story before the whole COVID-19 pandemic shutdown. I want to share that people can still visit their drive-thru location, Cool Beans, to purchase coffee, muffins, and cookies. People can also email Shannon directly to order half dozens or bakers dozens at shannon@okiebakingco.com or call her at 405-213-2896. Yellow Dog Coffee is also offering curb-side pick-up of drinks and roasted beans.

Thank you to my supporters on Patreon for helping to make Uncovering Oklahoma possible, especially during this crazy time! Supporters get awesome rewards, like early access to my episodes. Big thanks to superstar supporters: Lynn and Steve Keller-Kenton Family and Revolve Productions.
