Re: "Check your facts fool, I'm out!"

Ben Gray later apologized for letting the guy get under his skin.  But I still sympathize with the councilman.  There has been progress made in NE Omaha, but so much more needs to be done.  If it was an easy problem to fix it would have been fixed 50 years ago. Progress has been made in north and e...

Re: O Dining (10th and Farnam)

These things really bum me out. I help transition businesses for a living (business broker) and I hate seeing when restaurants just close their doors.

If anyone drinks Bloody Mary's and a fan of bacon try one there, they serve there's with bacon salt on the rim and a thick cut of bacon in the drink! Had one on a Sunday with brunch :yes:

There food is okay not the best well I'll say that from the food I've had at the center street location. Now I will give the new location a try I hope its better than my last time.
