Re: Benson

I hadn't been to Benson in months, so I decided to go last night and pay attention to the sidewalks. I thought the new sidewalks were great! The crosswalks for wheelchairs were nice. The sidewalks were smooth and seemed wider. Overall I think it is quite an improvement. I went to Benson Brewery sinc...

Re: UNO's "Baxter Arena" @ Aksarben

Also they mentioned how they gained dozens of extra "seats" from the rollout bleachers. I really don't know how that one is possible. Perhaps they just changed the seat measurement from 18 inches to 16 inches.

Re: UNO's "Baxter Arena" @ Aksarben

I laughed when I saw the headline in the paper this morning. They seriously didn't know how many seats they had? Didn't they think it was odd how they had to order a few hundred more seats? Yes I read the article, they explained where the extra space come from, but they didn't account for the extra ...

Re: Omaha Ramen Noodle Fest

Looking at their official facebook event page, it looks like they will have 10 chefs. So 600 ramens each. Let's say the festival is 4 hours long. That means they need to cook 150 ramens per hour or 2.5 per minute. I suppose it is possible, but they will be BUSY.
