Patio warriors. Can I make that a new hashtag for people who aren’t afraid to keep eating outside even when it’s cool like today? #omahapatiowarriors

This week’s newsletter is a letter of recommendation to get yourself the new cheeseburger @mercuryomaha and while you’re on 16th, a Manhattan @greenroomomaha. Enjoy those new patios while you’re at it. All that and more at the link in my profile.

Today is Matthew and my 11th wedding anniversary. There’s no doubt that we’re spending the day thinking about our friend Laurie Smith Camp, who died this week. We are the first couple she ever married. One of the things I remember most about the day is her words, which focused on court cases throughout history where love prevailed. We will miss Laurie’s grace, her wonderful parties, her stories and most of all her wise advice and guidance she never failed to share in an understated but powerful way. We are honored to have had her in our lives.

This week I have a half review/half appreciation of the beautiful patio dining experience we had recently @boilerroomrestaurant. Just spectacular, from top to bottom. Read it at the link in my profile, and make your reservation. You won’t regret it.
