The Cleanup

While many Omaha establishments are cutting hours or closing early due to short staffing or Covid concerns, a weekend weather emergency wiped out much of Downtown Omaha’s ability to serve. In spite of the circumstances, the community jumped to action. While the cleanup is well under way, be sure to check on social media or call ahead before heading to your downtown destination.

Omaha Kebabs

Omaha Kebabs celebrated their grand opening this week at 2101 N 120th St. The new establishment features a focused menu of Armenian-inspired cuisine, including spiced kabobs, cheesed stuffed falafel and flavorful sides. A full bar and dessert menu are ready for your perusal on Omaha Kebab’s Facebook Page.

Greek Festival

Omaha’s Greek Festival, held at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church on 602 Park Ave., is returning August 20th through the 22nd, and it’s coming to party. Enjoy domestic and Greek brews, boutique, live music and dance performances, and the traditional Greek delicacies that have become symbolic of the culture’s warmth and hospitality.

Tiki Bash

Trucks and Taps will be hosting Tiki Bash, a pig roast and Hawaiian plate dinner Saturday, August 28th on the patio. The food truck hub at 108th just south of Q Street will kick off the celebration at 2pm and will feature music from Sub Vectors.
