Reader Writer Releases New Book

Former Reader writer and locally syndicated food blogger (Fat In Omaha), Rachel Grace, has released the local food guide: Omaha Food; Bigger Than Beef. The 129 page book is part history lesson, part cookbook, and part love letter to a city with a booming culinary scene. Recipes from Kitchen Table, Brickway Distillery, Ted and Wally’s, and Dante’s punctuate beautiful photography of Omaha chefs, restaurateurs, and dining landmarks. Pick up your copy today to find out how we became the livestock state, and how we grew beyond.

Ika Ika All Day

If you just can’t wait until Ika Ramen and Izakaya open their new restaurant, join Jake’s Cigars for a special preview pop-up of Ika on Sunday Nov. 15th. The event starts at 4pm and ends when the ramen runs out.  The price of this 21 and over event is $8 for a Ramen Bowl, $5 for a Pork Belly Bun. These events have notoriously sold out fast, so get there early!
