News of the Week: Friday March 30th

I was sick the past couple of Fridays, thus the lack of blog posts. Because of that, I actually have a couple of weeks of news items.



Both the Downtown Omaha's Farmers Market and the Rockbrook Village Farmers Market start up next Saturday (May 5th, 2007).



Paul Kulik's new venture, Amsterdam Falafel & Kabob, opened last weekend in Dundee and was so popular, they actually ran out of food and had to close early! You can read more about it at the OHW and the Reader.



Sweet Magnolias is reopening in May under new ownership, but it sounds like the new owners will maintain many of the original recipes.



The DoughBoys, who won this year's Ron Sailors High School Team Culinary Arts Invitational, got some press in the Omaha World-Herald as they prepared for the National ProStart competition.

In a somewhat related announcement, an Annual Czech Dinner fund raiser will be held Sunday April 29, 2007 in Lincoln to support the Nebraska Restaurant Association Hospitality Education Foundation's ProStart Program.



Congrats to Sam at becks & posh who reached a million unique visitors this last week on her little food blog! That number is staggering. To give you an idea of how staggering, GFC had just 14,000 unique visitors since we started in March 2005. Despite our smaller numbers, I wanted to thank our readers who have been spreading the word because well over half of those visitors are just from the beginning of this year!



And in case you don't read everything that gets posted on GFC, we've added a new tool for all the Omaha Foodies with too much time on their hands. The Omaha Food Events Calendar should help keep you busy.
