B&B Classic Dogs

When you walk into B&B Classic Dogs in Bellevue you’re going to have to make a decision as to where you will allow your attention to be pulled. Will you want to stop and savor the smell of the food? Will you want to allow your gaze to wander over to the menu on the wall, or will you instead get caught up in the bright lights and loud noises of the arcade in the back of the restaurant? Will you be able to disregard all these sensory events and boldly stride to the counter, confidently ordering a hot dog?

Calm down. It’s not meant to be stressful.

Opened last year, B&B Classic Dogs can be summed up in one word: fun. I mean, hot dogs are fun and arcades are fun, so put them both together in...

Hot Food Walking

If you’re sick of going to the same restaurants all the time, maybe it’s time to mix things up and try out a food truck – if you can catch it.

Diner Food, Twisted

“My dad suggested a food truck and I thought, ‘Yeah, that’s it.’ Three generations work on our family-owned truck,” said Scotty Johnson.

“Another huge seller is my Barnyard Burger which is a third pound handcrafted burger, topped with fried chicken, bacon and cheese,” he said.

Plan to attend the Omaha Bike Against Hunger event on August 1 at 5:00 at Miller’s Landing. http://firstharvest.org/harvest-against-hunger/bike-ride/

The On Tap Experience

The evolution of alcohol consumption has changed dramatically over the last few years, particularly in the Midwest. Where Bud Light buckets once reigned, clear tulips of craft beer have taken the throne. Bland vodka has been replaced with choice whisky, and blended wines of impressive vintage have bumped Yellow Tail out of kitchens.

And it’s all about the presentation.

Any bartender will tell you the true essence of a spirit can be sought in the right vessel. Rocks glasses, carafes, and wine decanters help open the aromas of a beverage, creating a chemical reaction that can dramatically change the flavor. Attention to glassware and presentation also helps create an energy about the drink,...
