Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Bar for Conversation, To Study for the Bar, Neighborhood Tavern ...

Nestled comfortably at 1510 North Saddle Creek Rd., The Homy Inn is just east of that disfigured-octopus-of-an-intersection midtown drivers have come to love. And much like that horrid roundabout, The Homy is here to stay. And that’s a good thing. The bar has served generations of families, has long been a great after-work, happy-hour type place, has a varied and distinguished selection of beers and the toastiest...

Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Unique Gifts

The Afternoon opened dangerously near my day job at Midtown Crossing. It’s so easy to stroll over to the gift shop/home décor/furniture/art gallery on a break and come away with a knick-knack. The shop, now with three locations (one at Westroads Mall, one at Midtown Crossing and one at Mall of America in Minnesota), stocks all variety of odds and ends for the home: art, frames, coffeetable books, journals,...

Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Music Store

Homer’s is an Omaha music institution. Besides offering bestsellers alongside more obscure releases you’d never find at any of the big box chains, Homer’s often hosts in-store performances from national artists and it has been employing music geeks gainfully since the early 1970s. As one of two original Old Market businesses founded in 1971 (the other is The French Café), the old market store recently moved a...

Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Famers Market

Helped at least partly by the growing popularity of the local food movement, the Omaha Farmers Market has grown from having about 20 vendors and a few hundred visitors in 1994 to more than 110 vendors and about 8,000 visitors on an average weekend last summer. Vic Gutman has been through it all, founding the Omaha Farmers Market in 1994 after nearly 30 years of not having a farmers market downtown. This year, it...

Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Dry Cleaner

Some things about quality dry cleaning never change, like meticulous craftsmanship and care. Then there are innovations, which the best practitioners adopt to meet changing customer expectations. When Fashion Cleaners started in the 1940s eco-friendly cleaning was unknown. The same held true when Kermit Engh acquired the company in the 1980s. But as Engh’s evolved his business over time, he’s stayed true to...

Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Plumbing Company

When I was finally able to talk with Mark Evans, president of Burton Plumbing, I knew I had a 15 minute window at most. Thursday he was on a service call. Friday he was juggling administrative duties with service calls from one of the most popular plumbing companies in Omaha. “It makes us happy our customers voted for us again,” Evans says about being chosen Best Plumber in Readers’ Choice balloting....
