Foodies Rejoice!

Omaha Recognized for Great Food, Again

You’re probably not surprised to find that Omaha appears on many lists of great places for foodies. This time it’s the 2014’s list of Top 10 Foodie Cities where Omaha appears as #9. Among those eateries specifically mentioned: The Grey Plume, V. Mertz, and The Drover.

Openings: Cupcakes and Beer

A grand opening of epic proportions for cupcake fans in Papillion is taking place just south of Highway 370 at Midlands Place. Smallcakes: A Cupcakery opens its doors, offering freshly-made baked goods and the cheeky motto, “Maybe a Cupcake Will Help?” Also opening its doors is Farnam House Brewing Company on June 30, where they will serve both drinks and food.

Wine and Jazz

Jazz on the Green starts up July 10 in Midtown, but if you don’t like the hassle of fighting for a good spot you may want to give the folks at Brix a call and reserve a “season pass” for one of their patio spots. It’s a great way to enjoy jazz and drinks without schlepping a lawn chair around.

Pizza for Pilger

If you missed out on participating in the Pizza for Pilger fundraising efforts spearheaded by Ragazzi’s Pizza and other participating pizza places, you can still donate some money to help the relief efforts by visiting the Salvation Army’s website. Pizza for Pilger was a one-day event where a portion of the proceeds from pizza purchases were donated to help out tornado-ravaged Pilger and was a rare instance when several non-affiliated pizza joints all came together for one cause.
