Vegans and Bacon Lovers Alike Rejoice

Brace Yourself, Vegans!

Omaha’s first all-vegan restaurant is on schedule to open their doors on August 5. Modern Love Omaha will initially only serve dinner, but has plans to offer a Sunday brunch soon thereafter. More good news: they have their liquor license.

Omaha’s Food Network Star

The second season of The Food Network’s “Kids Cook-Off” with Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri  premiers on August 14 and includes a young chef from Omaha. Helen Wilson will be a "kidtestant" on this season, which includes a bunch of culinary competitions and oohs and aahs from a long list of celebrity guest judges.


September may seem like a long ways off, but it’s never too soon to start thinking about getting your tickets to the Baconfest on September 7 at The Salvation Army’s Kroc Center. This annual fundraiser allows attendees to sample a variety of bacon concoctions while enjoying music and, well, more bacon. Tickets are $25 for general admission with reduced prices for kids, military, and students.

Caffeinated and Convenient

Crane Coffee, one of the original coffeehouses in the Omaha area, now offers a smartphone app that allows you to pay for your coffee, get special offers, and earn rewards which leads to even more coffee in your hand. And really, when it comes right down to it for coffee lovers, isn’t that what life is about?
