Quick Pizza

Pizza chain Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint is opening their doors on January 29. This is the first of six Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joints slated to open within Nebraska and is located at 2521 South 132nd Street. The premise of these eateries is a “create your own pizza” format that’s also supposed to be speedy, but they manage to incorporate some fresh, local food into their menu too.

Farmer/Chef Speed Dating

It’s not speed dating in the traditional sense, but it’s an opportunity for local farmers to get together with local chefs and meet one another. The event takes place Saturday, February 7 from 11:00 a.m. until noon at Metropolitan Community College’s Institute for Culinary Arts. Preregister to guarantee your spot and prepare to do some quick networking.
