Revolutionary Action Party

A small and relentlessly compassionate group is making great efforts to replace perishables lost to last week’s storms. As of publication, thousands of Omaha residents were still without power, and tens of thousands had lost the entire contents of their refrigerators, freezers, and deep freezes to the outage. While there is never a good time to lose an entire home’s food supply, the long summer days when children are home from school and unable to access free meals means that Omaha’s most vulnerable were painted into an especially tight corner by the week’s havoc.

The group has been providing community assistance through grassroots efforts, and covers needs from assistance with utilities to dressing its members for interviews. This latest need has nearly wiped out their supply of non-perishables, and you have an opportunity to help.

The group is currently putting out a call for donations, as they are critically low on many of the essentials they have been providing the community. Non-perishable items like canned meats, boxed dinners, rice, breakfast bars, canned fruits and vegetables, and breakfast pantry items are of most good at the moment.

Sebastian’s Southern Crab

Coming soon to 843 N 98th street, Sebastian’s already has a lot going for it. While the website (Found Here) reads “under construction”, it finds itself extremely comprehensive already, with clear direction and excellent cohesion. I must say the menu is ambitious, but with a confidence I’m ready to test. There is literally a seafood boil on the kids menu and I’m already sitting in line with my three waiting for the grand opening.

Expect this cousin-owned enterprising eatery to be off the ground a little later this summer.
