Met Dave Cathey at St. George Greek Orthodox Church on a chilly, windy morning today. We shot a quick video to advance this weekend’s Greek Festival. This marks the 25th year of the festival, featuring Greek culture, fun and food.
Dave Cathey takes us to Monique’s down in Norman for a tailgating option. Monique’s features Caribbean food.
Ever turn right when you drive into Stillwater? Typically, I turn left towards the Oklahoma State University campus.
Not Tuesday night. Nope. On a mission, Mel and I met Tanner Herriott, his new bride Anne, Dave Cathey (The Oklahoman’s Food Editor) and his wife Lori for a video shoot at the Tokyo Pot, 108 W 10th Ave. (Urbanspoon review)
Cathey wanted to shoot a Table One-style video of this shabu-shabu concept restaurant. Tanner shot with the Canon 5D, capturing audio with his usual JVC rig.
The food was great. Thinly sliced meats and vegetables.
Three pots in the middle of the table over burners for cooking, see the pic at the right for a visual. One was only water, the other two were more sweeter or spicier. The meats ranged from chicken to fish to lamb to the star attraction – the ribeye.
We all had a great time, donning costumes and listening to the entertaining and engaging owners.
Story and video is upcoming.
No sake bombs were consumed during the taping of that segment.
I posted a minute teaser of 105degrees Cafe and Academy shot with a Vado HD over the weekend.
Read Cathey’s review of 105degrees here. Do it.
Both Dave and Tanner have eaten at 105degrees. I have not yet. Maybe that’ll change this weekend. If nothing else, I want some of that Elemental coffee they sell. I had some at Table One via their French press. It was impressive.
105degrees Cafe held its media open house on Tuesday. My crew showed up Wednesday afternoon to tape a one-on-one interview with Dara Prentice, Director of Business and External Affairs, and Matthew Kenney, Director of Culinary Arts and Operations.
The Oklahoman’s Dave Cathey interviewed Prentice and Kenney. Tanner Herriott shot the interview. Cathey’s story will appear in Wednesday’s editions of The Oklahoman. Herriott’s video will be posted on NewsOK.com on the same day.
My take on 105degrees: awesome interior, place smelled like a spa, the food sounded incredible. It has a great location, the first business to open in the new, trendy Classen Curve.
Big thanks to PR whiz Rob Crissinger for his help setting up the time and interview with the client.
I shot some footage with my Vado HD. See above for that teaser footage of our upcoming coverage.
