It looks like I’ll be relocating my Bricktown office. This is sad news to many in Bricktown – a stable, veteran operator closing shop. Did it have to happen? Depends on who you ask.
Favorite Uncommon Grounds memories: friendly arguments with Chad Huntington with a bemused Megan making fun of both us; hearing Gary Gregory’s big dreams for bringing retail back to downtown; having an interview interupted by a woman who demanded to know who I am – once I introduced myself, I asked what her name was and she insisted I already knew. When pressed, she said the paper had written all about her. Once she left, I was told several years ago she was an OSU student featured in Playboy. I still have no idea who she is.
Finally, and no offense to Tim and Alison at my second favorite coffee shop, The Buzz, but the flavored coffee at Uncommon Ground really was tops.
Now, let’s see how long the space goes empty.
