Re: 2017 Omaha Mayoral Election

I work near the Election Commission office and they have it set up again today (primary was same) as if there will be big crowds going there. Maybe I'm missing something, but on the actual voting day, isn't it the assumption that voters will go to their polling places? I thought going to the commiss...

Re: Casual Pint - Countryside Village

Finally made it for Bells & Brats last night. What a great little bar! Knowledgeable, friendly bartenders, great atmosphere, great beer selection. I concur with Brad - the garage door open to the patio in February was a great bonus! Will definitely be back. Walked by Cedar on the way back to the...

Re: Casino Buffets about played out!

I worked at one of the casinos right after they first opened. The excitement of them being new to the area and the competition amongst the three properties made for a fun and challenging work environment. People used to wait in line for the buffets for over an hour, sometimes two. I remember telling...

Apparently it's a "distribution point" of the Papillion location.  Open for lunch 11-2 Monday through Saturday with a limited menu.  Hope it's permanent!

Railcar Modern Amercian Kitchen (144th & Blondo)

Signage is up at the old Vincenzo's location at 144th & Blondo for a new restaurant called the Railcar.  Anyone know any details?

A "normal" beer selection?  Where do you shop?  I think they have a huge variety of beers to choose from - more than Hy-vee.  I agree with the poster who mentioned the better vibe on weekends - there are many times when you can't get a seat at the bar or a table on the retail side.  Gi...

I moved out of the Bentley Apartments 6 years ago (bought a house, got married), but lived in a one bedroom there for 6 1/2 years.  They're just east of the Westroads at 95th & Burt.  GREAT location close to I-680 and Dodge; only 1 and 2 bedroom units; small complex; nice workout room and pool...

The current location has an event center as well.  It's basically a very nice party room that they use for their wine and beer dinners as well as renting it out for private events.  I love the Village Pointe location, but am excited to see the store in a more "intimate" setting, with eve...

If not attending the home run derby, can anyone recommend a great spot for watching the TD Ameritrade fireworks?

We shared a featherbone from Uncle Earnie's, an ear of corn, a small pork taco from Maria Bonita, coconut curry chicken from 7M, jambalaya from Jazz, and sausage, dumplings and sauerkraut from Eddie's Catering.  I agree that too many places have full meals, but the most "expensive" thing ...

I have attended nearly every Taste of Omaha since it began.  It's a great way to try restaurants you've never been to or discover ones you've never heard of, not to mention sample cuisines you might not otherwise make a restaurant trip for.  It's also a fantastic place for people-watching!  I thi...

Thanks for the suggestions everyone!  We live on the north side of town, so we actually ended up at Henry's Diner in Crescent.  It was delicious - we had steak and prime rib.  Service was great too - highly recommend it if you want to get out of town some night.

CB restaurant suggestions?

I couldn't really find a recent thread devoted to restaurants in CB.  Going to the Roller Girls tonight and looking for a good place to eat before the match.  Prefer locally owned, made from scratch goodness, and relatively close to the MAC.  And it's probably too late to get a reservation for Di...

De Leon's Mexican - Omaha Locations

Going into the old Godfather's space on the SEC.  It's not open yet, but they're doing work inside and there is already signage outside.  Sign says it's open 24 hours - anyone know anything about it?
