The same old night out? That’s just not our taste. Chart your course through a few of our Greater Omaha drink and foodie favorites. Excerpt from We Don’t Coast magazine.

Hit up any of our neighborhoods or districts and you’ll find we are a foodies’ delight. Homegrown and all our own, here are a few places in the region we’re shouting up this week.

Aptly named for the area code in which it exists, 712 offers craft beers on tap, craft cocktails, wines and even prosecco on tap.

 

1912

Brothers Joe and Bill Carmichael take it to another level with hand-crafted margaritas, boilermakers and craft beers – all paired with a view on the rooftop terrace.
