Noshsense

Have you ever had a conversation with someone who is sitting on the precipice of a life-changing moment? It certainly makes for an interesting conversation, and can be a particularly animated conversation if there’s caffeine involved.

When I sat down to chat with Jill Lemen about her Noshsense bars it was obvious that this is a woman on the precipice of many life-changing moments ahead of her. She has kids readying to graduate from high school. She has a small business that’s rapidly becoming a bigger business. There’s a lot of change ahead of Jill, but she’s ready. “That’s the thing; I don’t really have a fear of failure,” says Jill. “I’ve been building this runway to get ready to take...

Farnam House Brewing Company

The first thing I noticed when I started talking to Tony Thomas about Farnam House Brewing Company is that he had a look on his face that I recognize. It’s the same face artists make when they create something they’re insanely proud of. It’s the face I make when my kids do something clever, and I decide they’re clever because I made them that way. It’s what my brother jokingly refers to as a “smug smirk of satisfaction,” or “ssmos” for short.

You see, Tony’s been at this whole idea of opening a brewery for quite some time. He didn’t just one day lean over to his friend Phil Doerr and in a drunken stupor slur, “We should totally open a brewery.” No, Tony’s dream of opening a brewery has...

Eat Like a Nebraskan Pioneer

Farm-to-table is a huge trend right now in Omaha restaurants. People want to know what’s in their food, where it came from, and how long it’s been sitting around before it made it to their plate. It’s certainly smart to know more about your food before you shove it in your mouth, but what you may not realize is that Nebraskans from years past already had this idea in their head. Sustainable, real food was the name of the game for the people who farmed this land long before we all came along.

Christianna Reinhardt knows a lot about how the pioneer farmers in Nebraska ate. Her book “A Culinary History of the Nebraska Sand Hills: Recipes and Recollections from Prairie Kitchens” not only...

Want to Play?

Midtown welcomed a new café recently, and although Spielbound hasn’t officially opened yet, it’s proving to be intriguing. The “soft opening” allows customers to come check out this board game café and try some of the drinks (coffee drinks, sodas, teas and beer), but the eventual goal is to have a full-fledged café complete with food offerings beyond pastries and snacks. And in case you’re wondering, yes, there are plenty of board games from which to choose to keep you occupied during your visit. http://spielbound.com/
