Holiday Market

You can never have too much fancy cheese and jams and all that jazz on hand during the holiday season, whether it’s to gift to someone or to eat on your own because it’s too cold to venture outdoors to find food. Either way, plan on heading to the annual Holiday Market at Aksarben Village, sponsored by the Omaha Farmers Market. This outdoor market is on December 6 and 7, from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Meet Me at Marks

Any proper crisp fall afternoon should include a leisurely stroll, crunching through the leaves on the streets of Dundee. That said, any dewy spring day or hot summer night should include a similar scenario.

Where else can you find a quiet coffee spot, hip sandwich shop, romantic date on a patio, or occasional celebrity sighting over a glass of wine?
And where in the world can you find all of this under one roof? Specifically, under the roof of a charismatic turn of the century house now known as Marks Bistro.
The charming bistro has fed regulars for 11 years, but also finds itself hosting the occasional big name. So big, in fact, that they use only one. Names like Bono, Buffett, and...

Taco Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday?

I searched high and low for the best tacos in the area. After running around all over town, I now present to you my two new favorite places for tacos.

Mula – Trendy Tacos

I went to Mula with my husband and a couple of friends, each of us resolved to try different tacos so we could compare notes.

One of the first things we decided to order was Mula’s yucca fries which are served with a tomatillo ketchup. In a word, this was “delish.” They are crispier than regular fries and not greasy at all. These are authentically prepared according to one of my friends who recently returned from a trip to Peru where he had yucca fries prepared in a pretty similar fashion.

The tomatillo ketchup was...

A Cherry Christmas

There’s good news if you’ve ever looked at a Nativity scene and thought to yourself, “Sure, this is great and all, but it would be better if I could eat it.” The Cordial Cherry is taking pre-orders for their popular Nativity scene made out of cordial cherry chocolates, which just so happened to show up in Oprah Magazine last year.

A Taste of Asia Thanksgiving

Taste of Asia invites everyone to head to their restaurant on Thanksgiving to enjoy some turkey pho, but not until after they first provide meals to some community members who need help. Volunteers are welcome to help Taste of Asia feed the less fortunate.

A Club With a View

Back when Omaha was still brand new, an idea fostered over a game of cards evolved into one of the longest running clubs in local history. Boasting some of the best journalists in the country as members, the Omaha Press Club has been dedicated to promoting and celebrating the world of local media for over 45 years.

History proved to test the strength of this idea for a writer’s haven, as events like Prohibition and World War II changed priorities for men nationwide. In 1937, The Omaha World Herald was the sole source of daily news for most of Omaha. As the war raged on in Europe and tore at the fabric in American society, it was an exciting time to be a journalist. Local writers in Omaha...

They’re hosting a month-long no-shave contest that will culminate with a big party and silent auction on Saturday, Nov 30.
