Dandelion Won’t Blow Away

A downtown location has been secured as the new home of Nick Bartholomew’s Dandelion Pop-Up. The twice-weekly event has had a home in the Greater Omaha Commons for two and a half years, but was informed at the beginning of this month that their space was being sold. The team was given 30 days to vacate. The new location will require a great deal of elbow grease, but workers are at the ready as the owner works to fund the venture.
