I bet all of my five readers thought I had disappeared. Well, I'm back! I've been travelling those lesser known states of Nebraska, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and a little bit of Texas. Here's the first edition.
Thanks to Louella for sending me the article about Omaha from the Bust magazine that I so carelessly threw out in a cleaning fit. I went to a bunch of places mentioned in the article. The thrift stores there are pretty cheap, and I found some cute skirts!
I went to M's Pub for lunch, which was really yummy. They have this flat bread pizza creation that's cheap and just what I wanted. For dinner, I went to a great Thai place downtown. It wasn't fancy, but the food was cheap and terrific! I also stopped into Ted and Wally's for a little ice cream. They make their own there and it resembles ice milk, which is great because I can't find that in the stores anymore. I loved ice milk.
The second day, I went to this cute French Bakery. I don't recall the name of it now. They have excellent quiche, potato salad, and yummy french butter cookies. All for around 7 bucks! Can't beat that.
There's also a great record store there called Antiquarium records, where I found a bunch of vinyl, including some Brainiac, which was nice.
Did I mention that you can get Fat Tire in Nebraska? Definitely an added bonus. Pubs visited included Mr. Toads, and this awesome little Irish pub near the record store. Omaha has a law where you can smoke indoors if they don't serve food. I thought that was interesting.
No Jenny Lewis sightings. Maybe next time.
