Think Local Food

I grew up a few miles west of the Union Stockyards in South Omaha. On windy days when the sun burned hot and bright in a blinding blue sky the acrid sent of manure would fill my nostrils while I worked alongside my parents and siblings picking pole beans and tomatoes in our garden. When I look back to my youth, before my parents were divorced, before south Omaha transformed from one kind of ethnic community into another, I think of our garden and the bright and blinding summer sun.

My parents weren’t exactly hippies, but they did name me Summer, and my older brother narrowly escaped the name Wolfgang. My dad always packed a lunch for work, the idea of eating out was unthinkable, and my...

Discounted Dining

Some people are embarrassed by using coupons and discounts at restaurants. Not me. I’ll walk into these places waving my coupon over my head, humming a happy song about how I’m not paying full price.

My experiment for the week: all my eating adventures included discounted vouchers from various sources. It wasn’t without its hiccups, but all in all I’m declaring my experiment a success.

Groupon

I’ve used Groupon successfully before for discounted race tickets, mainly because I figure if I’m going to pay someone to let me run anywhere it might as well be at a discounted rate. So I went into this knowing that Groupon has proven to work for me in the past and that most merchants seem to...

Is It Patio Season Yet?

Finally, Omaha is on the cusp of patio season. So stop by Corkscrew Wine and Cheese, 10924 Prairie Brook Rd in Rockbrook Village, and enjoy their quaint patio. Another reason to stop by is that their Rosé has started to arrive. This past week, they have received 13 cases of the most popular Bieler Pere et Fils. They are also currently pouring a Montepulciano Rosé by the glass. Stop out and see Janell and Justin this afternoon for a glass.

 

Get Your Mug Out.

Krug Park, 6205 Maple St., is offering Monday Mug Night in April which features the lovely Stella Artois wine chalice. Try the Stella Artois Cidre, made with hand-picked apples. Get your glass and first...
