Holiday Market

You can never have too much fancy cheese and jams and all that jazz on hand during the holiday season, whether it’s to gift to someone or to eat on your own because it’s too cold to venture outdoors to find food. Either way, plan on heading to the annual Holiday Market at Aksarben Village, sponsored by the Omaha Farmers Market. This outdoor market is on December 6 and 7, from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Introducing: Beer!

Ploughshare Brewing Company in Lincoln recently released their first four specially brewed beers. This new brewery has big plans for the future, so the next time you’re in Lincoln you may want to stop by and grab a beer or order something to eat off their seasonal, locally-sourced menu.

Freeze Your Face for Table Grace

Table Grace Café, a donation-only eatery in Downtown Omaha, is hosting a 5k or 1 mile run/walk on Saturday, December 6. Proceeds from the race will benefit Table Grace’s mission. The race is appropriately titled, “Freezing Race for Table Grace,” especially considering it starts early in the morning. Take solace in the fact that hot cocoa will be available to runners.

8th Annual Holiday Beerfest
