Food Opportunities Abound

Thirsty for Tea?

Thirst-Tea Café opened its doors on June 30 in Midtown Crossing. They offer a huge variety of teas and plenty of snacks. If you’re a fan of bubble tea, you’re going to love this place. Any chance this tea place will sway the coffee lovers of Omaha and make them tea fanatics? We shall see.

Growing Cities Needs Help

This is your last chance to help local filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette with their quest to get their documentary Growing Cities aired on PBS. Their Kickstarter campaign is nearing its funding amount, but more is needed. Help these guys get the word out to the world about urban farming. Seriously, even $5 will help.

Culinary Program Scholarship Deadline Approaching

If you’re thinking about pursuing a career in the culinary arts, check out the scholarships available to enroll in the Metropolitan Community College Culinary Arts and Management program. The deadline to submit your scholarship application and perhaps someday become the next big thing on the Omaha food scene is July 28.

Outstanding in the Field

Join Chef Paul Kulik from The Boiler Room on July 25 at Branched Oak Farm in Lincoln for Outstanding in the Field, a national tour that offers white tablecloth feasts smack in the middle of farm fields. This is truly a farm-to-table experience that helps diners get a better understanding of where their food comes from. Tickets are $190.
