Pop up with us at the Red Lion Lounge
I am incredibly excited to announce our first Omaha Dines event! We've teamed with the Red Lion Lounge, a very cool, retro bar in the Blackstone District, for a free, one night only event, so mark your calendars.
On Thursday, Sept. 27, I'll be at the bar, which will be serving a special menu of some of my favorite drinks along with a few special snacks. We've put together a pub quiz focused on Omaha restaurant history (there's some doozies on there) and if you fill one out, you stand to take home a prize.
We're also donating a portion of the evening's proceeds to the World-Herald's Goodfellows Charities, so you can feel good about dropping a bit of money on a drink or two.
My husband Matthew, who is a World-Herald columnist, will also be there. In case you missed it, we wrote a book together last year. I'm guessing, thanks to him, that the night's drink menu will also feature a touch of mezcal.
The event starts at 5:30 p.m. at the bar, on 38th and Farnam Streets. I hope to see many of you there.
In the meantime, I've been enjoying Omaha Restaurant Week. In fact, I've been trying some of my own recommendations. I'll report back on what I liked best of what sounded good later this week. Check out my list, and let me know what you've been eating at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, you can find me on Instagram at instagram.com/sarahbakerhansen and on twitter at twitter.com/sbhowh. See you next Tuesday.
