A cringe, a cough drop and a shudder at that thought..

Kim Kavulak said she and husband Paul are still negotiating a lease of the space at 7474 Towne Center Parkway, Suite 101, behind the new Hy-Vee Supermarket at 72nd Street and Nebraska Highway 370. But they hope to open a 170-seat, full-service American restaurant, brewery and bar there in October.

Papillion Mayor James Blinn spoke about how Shadow Lake will benefit the community. The outdoor shopping center at 72nd Street and Nebraska Highway 370 has 800,000 square feet and 32 retailers. An additional 15 stores are planned, and there are more vacancies to fill.
Other events for the grand opening weekend include a performance by Nickelodeon star Drake Bell at 1 p.m. today in the Alegent Health Amphitheatre. On Memorial Day, a patriotic program will feature the Offutt Air Force Base Color Guard, a special flag celebration and live musical performance by the Avi8ors.

The Borders is very nice. Â The Wheatfield's building is two stories with an interior elevator and hallways/bathroom. Â The varied architecture is very cool looking. Â The fountain area is sunken, so you step down into a nice small amphitheater space w/ water and fountains in the middle. Â There is an area for summertime kid fountains that kids can walk through the jumping water.
Where is the Wheat Fields building? Â In the center area?

First the access from Gold Coast Road to Highway 370 closed. Then Farmer B's Steak House followed.
The restaurant at 1406 Gold Coast Road in Papillion has a "For Sale" sign in front of it.
Mimi Janda, a co-owner of Farmer B's, said the highway access was a factor in the decision to close May 21.
The party business was booming, she said. "We had prenups (wedding rehearsal dinners), we had anniversaries. We had all that stuff."
But regular business was slow.
"Basically, the faucet was slowly shutting off as construction started, and when they actually closed the road, the faucet just went totally off," Janda said.
Janda and her husband, David, did not own the restaurant when the Papillion City Council decided to remove the access from Gold Coast Road to Highway 370.
"We bought it (in 2005) knowing full well, but not realizing, the impact it would have," she said.
At Naber Chiropractic, owner Dr. Troy Naber said lack of highway access has reduced traffic to businesses along that section of Gold Coast Road. Naber's office, 1410 Gold Coast Road, looks out over the Farmer B's parking lot.
The closure reduced the number of cars in the parking lot by at least a third, he said. "And . . . you're going to have Texas Roadhouse going in down (at Shadow Lake) with main access. . . . It's just going to be a nightmare."
