Dropping in to Omaha’s historic downtown is Dishcrawl Downtown on Wednesday May 22nd at 7:00 p.m. All in one night, dine at four restaurants in the downtown area. You won’t know which ones until that night. The secret is kept except for clues you may receive leading up to your eating tour. There are vegetarian options if that is a concern. Dishcrawl Omaha contributes to strengthen the bond within Omaha’s food communities. Reservations for the May 22nd  Downtown Dishcrawl are $45 per person and can be purchased at dishcrawl.com/omaha. For more information contact Rachel Grace, your Dishcrawl Abassador, at rachelg@dishcrawl.com.
