Want to Play?
Midtown welcomed a new café recently, and although Spielbound hasn’t officially opened yet, it’s proving to be intriguing. The “soft opening” allows customers to come check out this board game café and try some of the drinks (coffee drinks, sodas, teas and beer), but the eventual goal is to have a full-fledged café complete with food offerings beyond pastries and snacks. And in case you’re wondering, yes, there are plenty of board games from which to choose to keep you occupied during your visit. http://spielbound.com/
A Funny Food Drive
Food drives don’t have to be dull. Consider the upcoming comedy show at the Pizza Shoppe Collective on Sept 20 from 8:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. featuring local comedians and a fully improvised comedy show at the end of the evening. Admission is $10 or $8 with two canned food item donations, but bring more to donate because September is the Food Bank’s Hunger Action Month. http://pizzashoppecollective.com/
Dine Out for Breast Cancer
Harvest will host a special prix-fix dinner on Saturday, Oct 11 to benefit breast cancer victims. Owner Tom Sawyer lost his wife to breast cancer in 2010, so this is a cause very close to his heart. The dinner will be staffed by volunteers and a portion of the sales, tips and donations will go directly to the cause. http://omahaharvest.com/
German-American Society’s Oktoberfest
Friday, Sept 19 and Saturday, Sept 20 are the days for the 130th annual German Day at the German-American Society. $5 grants you admission to the festivities, which include food, drinks and entertainment. If you like German food (or German beer), you won’t want to miss this event. (Provigil) Active duty military get in free with an ID and free parking is available. http://www.germanamericansociety.org/
