Beards and Beer

Nebraska Brewing Company is celebrating No Shave November by partnering with the Pints for Prostates organization. They’re hosting a month-long no-shave contest that will culminate with a big party and silent auction on Saturday, Nov 30. All proceeds for the event go to Pints for Prostates, an organization that promotes health awareness and the importance of cancer screenings among men.

Way to Go, Nebraska!

Nebraska can boast six listings within the newly released 2014 Good Food Org Guide, which is created by the James Beard Foundation and Food Tank. The guide features U.S.-based organizations that promote and advocate for a better food system. Omaha’s own Big Muddy Urban Farm and City Sprouts are among the organizations mentioned within the guide.

New Wine List

Midtown’s Black Oak Grill has a new wine list and a punch-inspired cocktail. They’re offering new white, pink and red wines, so there’s a good chance you’ll find one you like if you’re a fan of wine. Hint: go during happy hour (Mon – Fri, 3:00-6:00 p.m.) and you’ll get wine for half the price you would pay otherwise.

Speaking of Wine…

Stories Coffeehouse offers half priced bottles of wine every Wednesday – they call it Wine Down Wednesday. If you don’t like wine, or if the dropping temperatures make you want to drink something warm, remember that since it’s a coffeehouse, they have coffee too. And food. And a bunch of other stuff.
