Trader Joe’s, a California-based grocer, plans to open its first Omaha store Nov. 12, at One Pacific Place. The grocery chain made a name for itself with its extensive wine selection and for selling organic food at a reasonable price. For more information, visit traderjoes.com. In other grocer news, Thursday, Sept. 30, Wohlner's opened its second store at the Midtown Crossing development on the corner of 33rd and Dodge. The store has the meat and deli counter its patrons have grown to love. The locally owned grocery moved from its store at 52nd and Leavenworth two years ago to the shiny Aksarben Crossing development. It has also opened a sandwich cart at the University of Nebraska at Omaha with limited hours of service. The grocery store’s website is being revamped, but information is available at wohlners.com. — Lainey Seyler All four HuHot Mongolian Grill locations in Omaha and Council Bluffs will host a food drive for Food Bank of the Heartland throughout October, and they’re giving their customers a healthy discount for participating. All customers who bring in five non-perishable items will receive 50 percent off their grill meal. The chain will also donate 10 percent of sales for the Helping Hands Benefits held Tuesday, Oct. 12, and Monday, Oct. 25. If you’ve ever found yourself pressed for brevity when trying to send a message on Twitter, try posting a recipe. Amateur cook Maureen Evans became good at it. So good that Artisan books has just released “Eat Tweet,” a collection of more than 1,000 (!) recipes Evans has Tweeted from her @cookbook account on the social networking site. And she’s still Tweeting! Here’s a recent recipe: “Roasted Tomato Sauce: Chop,mix3lb tom/onion/sprgoreg/?c olvoil&whlgarlc/s+p. Partly cvr in bkgdish~h@375F. Sieve(opt); +3T tompaste. Yld~2c.” — Kyle Tonniges Comments? Questions? Want more? Check out our Booked blog online at The Reader. Or email us at booked@thereader.com.
