September 2015

Found 6 blog entries for September 2015.

You know you live in a world of technology when Google's logo is what reminds you that summer is over and fall has officially arrived. 

We woke up yesterday, cracked open a computer and saw that Google's usual letters had been replaced by six gourds of various colors. A squirrel lurked behind them, popping up ever few seconds to give us a sneaky grin and a quick wave. 

Autumn is here, and with it comes one of our favorite aspects of the golden season and its forthcoming friend, winter: gifts!

What's all this autumn/winter/gift talk about? Great question. 

Over the next few months the All Metro Real Estate blog will feature some pretty cool stories you'll want to cozy up to. Consider them our gifts to you this holiday season! We're excited

Apples have come a long way since their dubious days as the supposed forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden. 

This weekend the crispy, crunchy fruit will be the superstar at Kimmel Orchard & Vineyard's Apple Jack Celebration from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday in Nebraska City. 

"It's the can't-miss festival of the year," Kimmel's website says. "We hope to see you at Kimmel Orchard for a flavorful and fun-filled weekend for the entire family!"

 

Lest you think apple have worn out their welcome with a world now obsessed with superfoods like acai berries and pomegranates, the festival should draw between 60,00 and 80,000 people.

The festival will be a veritable Holy Land of all-things-apple, featuring everything from the classic

This past week, the South High marching band made it into the Omaha World-Herald. 

The reason? They're headed to the 2015 Memorial Day Parade in Washington D.C. and it's going to cost them $90,000. 

Reporter Erin Duffy interviewed band members and administrators about the group's goal of heading to the nation's capital. 

"They're a determined group of kids who keep showing up for practice. Even when it's tough to catch a ride," Duffy wrote. "Even when parents complain that the three-hour practices keep them from homework or from the after-school jobs whose paychecks often help stretch tight family budgets."

Rep. Brad Ashford nominated the band to perform at the parade, which will be a 75-year commemorative event.

Local. 

It's a movement that's happening all across America and Omaha is one of the best examples of this revolutionary trend. 

A few weeks ago we featured four restaurants that were highlighted in a Food Network article about must-eat locations for Omaha newcomers. Kitchen Table, the Farnam St. favorite, was one of the places on the Food Network list.

At which point did you guys decided to open Kitchen Table and what led you to make the decision?

Opening a  restaurant was always kind of in the back of our heads. Colin's job as a chef gave us an awesome
