Sonic, America's Drive-In Corporate Headquarters are located in Bricktown, OKC.

But this is not the Sonic news that has 2.3 million people buzzing.
Groundhog Day is the Second of February. This is supposedly a day that predicts if Spring is going to crack the whole Winter code thing, or if we're supposed to hunker down and button up, 'cause more wintry weather is coming. Unfortunately, Oklahoma City is sans a groundhog... so most of our action is caught on TV from the Pennsylvania big guy, who seems to sleep in alot. Sigh.
But have no fear! Sonic, America's Drive-In has BIG plans for Groundhog Day! Sonic plans a half-price hot dog sale on their new hot dog menu. http://www.sonicdrivein.com/MenuSection/coneys-hot-dogs
And the 2.3 MILLION people ... that is what they are all excited about? Yes and no. Sonic has rolled out a Ground-hog-a-thon Predictor. Listed on the Sonic FB page, it allows you to ask a LIVE question of the Sonic Groundhog and get a LIVE response posted from a FB or Twitter account. Here is the link for this well composed game: http://www.sonicdrivein.com/i/ghdhpto Game
Sonic's Groundhog was live interviewed by this writer under the handle of Cultiv8Hope, via Twitter on Thursday, January 31, 2013.
When asked if Sonic Groundhog is inclined to eat his TOTS off the tips of his fingers... he did somewhat sheepishly admit to this style of consumption of the famous Sonic side of TATERTOTS http://www.sonicdrivein.com/MenuSection/snacks-sides.
When asked if Sonic Groundhog had dealings with the OKC NBA Thunder Mascot, Rumble The Bison, Mr. Groundhog said he had some " in passing" and that Mr. Groundhog bravely believed himself the better dresser. 2.3 million people surely can't be wrong about this Made In Oklahoma gem.
