Hello there, dear readers! As a proud member of the Pragma Dental family, my days are often filled with the joy of bringing smiles to the wonderful faces of Oklahoma City. When I’m not in the dental office, I love to immerse myself in the vibrant culture and endless adventures that our beloved city offers. Today, I’d like to take you on a virtual tour of some of the treasures that make Oklahoma City a place close to my heart.
Take In A Performance At The Oklahoma City Ballet
Let’s start our journey with an experience that’s akin to poetry in motion – the Oklahoma City Ballet. Nestled in the heart of the city, this ballet company is a testament to the rich artistic spirit flowing through our community. From the mesmerizing performances of classical ballet to contemporary dances, each movement on stage tells a story that resonates with the soul. The grace (no pun intended) and finesse of the dancers is something that never fails to inspire, making a visit to the Oklahoma City Ballet an enriching experience.
Full disclosure… Long before I ever aspired to be in consideration as one of the best dentists in OKC, I began my college years on a full dance scholarship at the University of Oklahoma. Pragma Dental is a proud sponsor of the OKC Ballet!
Take A Tour Of Historic Bricktown
As someone with a deep appreciation for history and architecture, a stroll through the historic Bricktown always sets a nostalgic yet exciting tone. The charming cobblestone streets, the quaint boutiques, and the picturesque canal offer a serene escape from the hustle and bustle. The whispers of the past echo through the red brick walls, while the modern eateries and entertainment venues infuse a lively vibe into the district.
Smell The Botanicals Of Myriad
Now, if you’re someone who thrives in the embrace of nature, the Myriad Botanical Gardens is a haven waiting to be explored. The sight of blooming flowers, the lush greenery, and the tranquil ponds create a harmonious sanctuary right in the midst of urban life. It’s a place where one can reflect, rejuvenate, and revel in the simple joys of nature.
Get Your Sports Fix
For the thrill-seekers and sports enthusiasts among us, nothing beats the adrenaline rush at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, the epicenter of our city’s sporting spirit. Whether it’s rallying behind our beloved Oklahoma City Thunder or witnessing a high-octane concert, the aura of collective excitement is electrifying.
Take A Walk On The Wild Side (At The Zoo)
And who could resist the call of the wild? The Oklahoma City Zoo is a window into the fascinating world of wildlife. It’s a place where curiosity meets conservation, and every encounter with the magnificent animals sparks a deeper understanding of our co-existence with nature.
Grab A Good Bite To Eat
No exploration of Oklahoma City would be complete without indulging in the local culinary scene. From hearty steaks to innovative vegan dishes, the gastronomic diversity mirrors the inclusive and welcoming nature of our community.
Some of my favorites include:
- Cheever’s Cafe – A staple of good, comfort, greedy food 😉
- Nonesuch – High end, adventurous restaurant
- The Jones Assembly – Music, food & craft cocktails
- Picasso Cafe – Cozier, vegan-friendly, local
- The Study – An extremely cozy “wine-pub”
