LocalMotive Taken Over[Easy]
LocalMotive, the much-loved but now defunct locavore’s dream on wheels, was a hit with Omaha crowds for their use of responsible sourcing, their commitment to the community, and of course, their rounders. In a match-made-in-heaven, OverEasy owner Nick Bartholomew has acquired LocalMotive and will be serving sandwiches and rounders from the drive through window. The weekend-evening-only menu will roll out Friday, August 18 and run through the end of summer. Bartholomew’s other venture, Dandelion Pop-Up, plans to host the menu in the near future, as well.
