  • Dante Cooking Class

    April 11, 2012

    Dusty and I really enjoy food and wine! We absolutely love eating at Dante Ristorante and Pizzeria. Nick, chef and owner, is brilliant and Andy, wine director, has so much energy and passion for not only Italian wine but all wine.  The entire staff at Dante’s is the best.  If you live in Omaha and haven’t eaten there you need to.  Dusty likes to say that it’s a phenomenal pasta place disguised as a pizza shop.  Seriously, the pizza is the best in town (Pitch being a close second) but the pasta and green salads are the hidden gem.  All of their pasta, dough, mozzarella, and most everything else is made fresh in house.  Most everything (if not everything) is locally grown and raised.

    Dante’s started offering wine dinners a few month ago that Dusty and I started attending.  It’s a great reason to try excellent food and wine and to learn how everything pairs together.  For months Nick and Andy have been talking about hosting a cooking class where guests can do a little Italian cooking and end the night with a great dinner.  A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to be able to attend and had an absolutely wonderful time.  They closed down the restaurant for the night  and we were able to go to four different food stations and two different beverage stations to learn about wines, beers, making fresh pasta, making neapolitan pizza, homemade sausage, and breaking down poultry and fish.  I learned and did so many interesting things. It was a great date night out with Dusty. I can’t wait to do it again.

  • Spring Omaha Fashion Week

    April 10, 2012

    A few weeks ago we attended one of the Spring Omaha Fashion Week Runway shows.  On the runway that night were collections by designers Emma Erickson, Megan Hunt for Princess Lasertron, Jane Round and Paddy Tarlton for Dancin Yogi.  The event was held at Kaneko, which is one of Dusty’s and my favorite venues in the Old Market.  It was an excellent event all around–the best front row seats, phenomenal models, and of course, inspiring collections.  To our surprise Jerell Scott, of this season’s Project Runway All Stars was there (See picture below of Jerell with my friend Kate and me, lower right).

    One of our favorite events in Omaha is the Annual Fall Omaha Fashion Week. This is our third year attending. I love seeing what all of the local designers are able to create.  It’s amazing what great talent we have in Omaha.  Omaha Fashion Week is not only a collection of talented designers, stylists, photographers, artists and models but it’s also the highlight of Omaha’s social calendar. Dusty and I aren’t very fashion forward but I love seeing what beautiful things people are wearing.  We hosted a pre-soiree at our place before the big event.

  • Emerging Terrain

    October 10, 2010

    At the beginning of October we went to a wonderful event where we ate dinner outside with 500 great people.  All of the food was locally grown and local chefs and volunteers were prepared and served dinner.  It was one of the most humbling events we’ve been to in a long time, eating outside along side the silos with the friendliest strangers from across the city.  It really made me proud to say that I live in Omaha.  The organization that put on the event was Emerging Terrain, a non-profit that’s goal is to educate people on social, cultural, and economic factors that shape the built environment.  This project was a large-scale installation covering silos in Omaha.

  • Omaha Fashion Show

    October 21, 2009

    Dusty and I attended the final show of the 2nd Annual Omaha Fashion Week this year.  Dusty and I aren’t super trendy and I’m not huge into fashion but I do love watching Project Runway and do love see local art.  It was one of the funnest events I’ve been to in Omaha.  We got to see a lot of local designers who are doing some really cool things.  Here’s a couple pictures from our night out.
