Broadway choppers

Construction starts on a pair of new restaurant and bar concepts in Midtown.

Jeff Dixon and Aaron Soward were eating lunch and throwing around the idea that they could combine their experience and strike out for themselves. They had many combined years of experience, and both came up in the Hal Smith Restaurant Group restaurants around the Oklahoma City metro area. Dixon was the manager who opened Upper Crust Wood Fired Pizza at Classen Curve, and Soward was the general manager at Redrock Canyon Grill, 9221 Lake Hefner Parkway. Both men were ready for a change and felt confident that they were ready to tackle their own restaurant concept.

Planting the seed

No longer just a solo act, singer-songwriter Chelsey Cope is embarking on a more collaborative and organic endeavor.


Nathan Winfrey
Chelsey Cope’s new band, Elms, is as earthy and native to Oklahoma as the trees that are their namesake. The soulful folk four-piece’s debut EP, Parallel Lines, was recorded at Bell Labs Recording Studio in Norman and is on its way in September. But the band has already given us a tease, with its first single, “Burn,” going live on SoundCloud on July 14.
