Nothing warms you up during a cold, Omaha winter like a pint of tasty beer and a delicious, warm meal. Thankfully both of these things are easy to come by during Omaha Beer Week, which takes place this year from February 15 to February 24. While you’re out enjoying special beer week events and drinking unique foamy beverages from local breweries and bars, be sure to practice safe, responsible driving habits.
The best way to enjoy the many events of the
Omaha Beer Week safely is to secure a designated driver for the night. Pick
someone you can trust to remain sober, and let them be your chauffeur. Having a
designated driver assigned ahead of time takes away any question as to who is
the most fit to drive. If you have to ask, chances are no on should be behind the
If, for some reason, your designated drive
falls through, you need to find another sober ride home. Many bars and
breweries are more than happy to call a cab for you so that you can get home
safely. You can also download rideshare apps ahead of time so that you can call
a car on your own.
Sedans are predominantly the major vehicle drivers go with in the US if they don’t drive a truck or SUV. But the five-door hatchback counterparts are growing in popularity and offer a wholly different driving experience. So where do you fit in the sedans vs. hatchbacks debate?
Sedan drivers love their vehicles because the market is so
vast and there are so many options in various sizes—from compact to large. Some
of these sedans have been around for decades and thus offer some peace of mind
in terms of reliability. Other drivers like sedans because they offer more
privacy with a locking trunk, whereas hatchbacks expose the contents of the
back of your car with major window.
However, hatchbacks are highly sought after because of their
superior resale value—partially because they are less common and thus harder
for used car buyers to find. Hatchbacks are also more practical with rear
folding seats that greatly improve the cargo area for luggage, groceries, and
sporting equipment. In most cases of a vehicle with a sedan and hatchback
variant, the hatchback boasts the superior cargo space. Hatchbacks are also
often considered more visually appealing, likely because they stand out more
easily in a sea of sedans on American roadways. If you like to make a bold
statement on the road, go with a hatchback.
The Omaha Community Playhouse continues its annual tradition with another fantastic run of A Christmas Carol, the classic holiday play based on Charles Dickens’ 1843 novella. Ticket pricing and availability depends on the day and time of the show, so visit the OCP website now and grab your tickets!
Featuring wealthy Ebenezer Scrooge, the unfortunate people who work for him, and a series of ghosts trying to make Scrooge a better person, A Christmas Carol reminds us to look beyond materialism and appreciate the true joy of Christmas: giving, kindness, and being with family.
The Omaha Community Playhouse’s production exemplifies the emphasis on community and altruism in the play, since every part of the play from costumes and the orchestra down to the cast dinner is being sponsored by a local business.
