Buffalo Wings and Rings unveiled 9 new limited time menu items this week inspired by America’s favorite pastime. The game is truly elevated in the Cajun spiced hot dog with a Creole Pepper sauce served on a King’s Hawaiian bun. The sweet Thai chili “Jack’d up Wings” are a well-balanced bite, and should clearly be paired with a Coca Cola Float. Finish the night with “Battered-Up” funnel  cake sticks for a fun, nostalgic dining experience.

Can I Get A Huzzah?

The Nebraska Renaissance Faire will take place both this weekend and next from 11am-6pm at Bellevue Berry and Pumpkin Patch. Lords and Ladies are invited to snack on Scotch eggs and turkey legs before trying their hand at archery, or sip some cold mead as they take in a joust. The flight of fancy includes puppet shows and “fight the knight” for the little ones, and axe throwing for those hale and hearty enough to give it a go. Learn more at

Workers urge you to help them put a stop to contaminated meat being served to your family. To read the affidavits or sign the petition, visit
