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...

A Day Out in the Orchard

Fall means colorful leaves crunching under foot, warm apple pies and spooky, carved pumpkins. Fortunately, whether you’re interested in one or all three of the above things, one of the best places to find them is at a local orchard.

And you’re in luck because our region has lots of great places to find that perfectly shaped pumpkin or ripe, juicy apples all while walking on leaves and, in some cases, taking a ride over some hay.

Alton Brown Invades Omaha

When I watched a preview snippet of Alton’s Brown Edible Inevitable tour I was confused as to what the show would actually entail. From what I could tell, there will be food and music. There will also be comedy and maybe some stuff exploding. Or, at least, that’s what I gathered when I saw that the folks in the front row are urged to wear plastic ponchos.

“What I wanted to develop was a culinary variety show, a kind of old-style variety show where there’s a lot of different things going on all kind of centered around food,” Alton told me. “Of course, a variety show has to have live music so I do some of my food songs, which are hopefully hilarious.” He laughs and adds, “They make me laugh...
