Now That’s What I Call a Drink

The bartender: You respect her because she stands between you and your drink, whether it be that first sip of cold beer at Friday Happy Hour or a nightcap at the watering hole down the street. If she’s busy, you wait. When she’s ready, you’re served.

But there‘s often more to tending bar than banging out a dozen Kamikaze shots at once. Inventive bartenders, inspired by century-old classics and the methods by which they were made, craft their own recipes and execute with precision and care. Mixology, as the field is known, seems to have skipped over the era of sugary sweet Fuzzy Navels and looks further back in time for inspiration. Today, Omaha abounds with bars that feature the work...

A Mother’s Day Challenge: Brunch and Beyond

A Mother’s Day Challenge: Brunch and Beyond

Go ahead and let the laundry pile up as the dishes lay in the sink.
The lawn is not mowed. The grocery list is long. The new shirt you just put on has strawberry drippings from two seconds ago and your gray hairs are showing up like bright pink neon. The kids are all dressed up for brunch and playing in the mud. It is Mother’s Day. Regardless of all of items on the to-do list, it is time for all of those who are called Mom to be celebrated. 

I could write about the history of Mother’s Day (that it was only declared a national holiday in 1914 by then president Woodrow Wilson.) Or speculate on how Mother’s Day brunch became synonymous with...

<p>  The Kevin Loth and Charuth Van Beuzekom of Shadow Brook Farm and Dutch Girl Creamery</p> Meet Your Farmers

This year’s Farmers Market Guide goes beyond a list of addresses and websites to tell the stories of farmers you might see throughout the season. We profiled those who make convenience foods, grow vegetables, create cheese and produce grass-fed beef. Of course, there are many more farmers than room in print to tell their stories, which is why The Reader has also designated the first week of every month as Local Food Week. During those weeks we will dedicate space and time to the local producers who grow our food and share what’s in season as well as news and events surrounding local food.

Take time this year to introduce yourself and get to know your producers. Many farmers’ market...
