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. http://www.thirstteacafe.com

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. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/growincities/growing-cities-lets-get-urban-farming-on-pbs
