On Friday night of the Conference, “dine arounds” will be available. Members of the local arrangements committee will host a group of conferees at each of the following restaurants. Please place your name on the sign-up sheet when you arrive for the conference. Space in each group is limited. Feel free to enjoy any number of other downtown Omaha restaurants, if you choose not to take advantage of any of the dine arounds (see the URL and map below).
Dine Around Restaurants
• The menu runs the gamut from appetizers (e.g., Smoked Salmon Mousseline), to soups and salads (e.g., Thai chicken, lamb, or blackened shrimp), to baked dishes (e.g., mushrooms or escargot), to “M’s Famous Lahvosh” (e.g., vegetarian, Florentine, or Sicilian), to cold and hot sandwiches, burgers, and desserts.
Omaha Tap House
• Burgers, wings, soups & salads, sandwiches and, well, things on tap (33 beers, to be exact).
• Plank is a coastally-inspired oyster bar and seafood grill. Fresh fish is served daily.
Stokes Grill & Bar
• Stokes serves a variety of Mexican as well as pasta dishes, along with sandwiches, desserts, and a full range of drinks.
Twisted Fork Grill & Bar
• The "Fork," as it is affectionately known, is an eclectic grill and saloon in Omaha's historic Old Market District that serves American comfort food with a "Cowboy Twist." Steaks, salads, sandwiches and “things you don’t rope” are on the menu.
Upstream Brewing Company
• The name “Upstream” is derived from the Native American meaning of Omaha, “upstream” or “against the current.” Since opening in 1996, the Upstream has been all about fresh—from the handcrafted beers to the locally grown produce to the lively atmosphere.
