Stop in at Hot Shops January 1-29 to check out the Potluck – Art for Food Exhibit. The exhibit is free and open to the public and attendees are encouraged to bring along some nonperishable food to donate. The food will then be donated to local food pantries, helping local folks who need a little help. http://www.hotshopsartcenter.com/index.html
Urban Abbey recently announced that students with valid IDs now get 10% off any coffee or tea drink. The offer’s valid anytime they’re open, so if you’re looking for somewhere to get caffeinated while you study, this may be the place. http://www.urbanabbeyomaha.com/
