We all have our vices. For some, it's drinking. For some, it's smoking. For others, it's gambling. For me, there are two vices ... hamburgers and diet soda.
Granted, there are worse things to which I could be "addicted" but those are my downfalls. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you know that I will often snap a picture when I make it to the West Coast and step foot inside an In-n-Out Burger. It's not a matter of "if" I am going to In-n-Out when I head to Southern California or Las Vegas, it's a matter of "when" and "how many times."
Of course, there are other hamburgers out there besides In-n-Out (some of you are gasping right now that I would even write those words), but there are. There was much rejoicing when a Five Guys opened up in south Tulsa. The cheeseburgers and cold root beer at Brownie's here in Tulsa are hard to beat on a hot summer day.
But in Oklahoma, there is the "holy grail" of hamburgers ... the Meersburger. Take a moment and Google "Meers hamburger" and see what you find. When Men's Journal recently printed their list of places you must visit in every state, yes, my home state had Meers as its "must-visit" spot. Food Network named it as the best hamburger in Oklahoma. For a state that loves its beef, that's saying something.
Where is Meers you ask? Well, it's located in the southwestern corner of Oklahoma, about three hours from Tulsa and about an hour or so from Oklahoma City. Founded as a gold mining town in 1901 (six years before Oklahoma became a state), the only remaining structure from the original town is the Meers Store & Restaurant ... the home of the Meersburger.
Why am I telling you about hamburgers and what does it have to do with your job and the dental industry? Watch my video above and I'll try to make the connection for you. Trust me, I'm not just trying to make you hungry.
