I bet there is a nice Christian Science Reading Room somewhere along the way.

Re: Lincoln/Omaha Nebraska hotspots.

The only thing I know would be to tour the campus (University of Nebraska) and see the 2nd largest city in Nebraska during home football games...

70Chip -- I counted 5 Christian Bookstores in Manassas. Seriously. How does your community support that many!

I kinda expected to get crickets on this one -- CORN RULEZ.

Re: Lincoln/Omaha Nebraska hotspots.

Well there's the Sonic drive in, that place is always hopping. There's the Walmart, plenty of chicks there. There was a bowling alley, but that burned down. And the Tractor Supply probably has their new summer stock in so you HAVE to go check that out.

Re: Lincoln/Omaha Nebraska hotspots.

From Wikipedia:

"Omaha's rich history in rhythm and blues, and jazz gave rise to a number of influential bands, including Anna Mae Winburn's Cotton Club Boys and Lloyd Hunter's Seranaders. Rock and roll pioneer Wynonie Harris, jazz great Preston Love, drummer Buddy Miles, and Luigi Waites are among the city's homegrown talent. Doug Ingle from the late 1960s band Iron Butterfly is also from Omaha. Contemporary music groups either located in or originally from Omaha include Mannheim Steamroller, Bright Eyes, The Faint, Cursive, Azure Ray, Tilly and the Wall and 311. The late indie-folk singer/songwriter Elliott Smith was also from Omaha. During the late 1990s, Omaha became nationally known as the birthplace of Saddle Creek Records, and the subsequent "Omaha Sound" was born from their bands' collective style.[168][169] Omaha also has a fledgling hip hop scene. Long-time bastion Houston Alexander, a one-time graffiti artist and professional Mixed Martial Arts competitor, is currently a local hip-hop radio show host.[170][171] Cerone Thomas, known as "Scrybe," has had a number one single on college radio stations across the United States.[172]"

"Lincoln, Nebraska, is the hometown of Zager and Evans, known for their international #1 hit record, 'In the Year 2525'. In addition, Lincoln is the hometown of the 1970s Horn Rock Band, STRAIGHT, known for the hit singles 'Save Your Breath' and 'Half Heaven, Half Heartache'."

Re: Lincoln/Omaha Nebraska hotspots.

Hey guys,

Back from my trip. Omaha was pretty depressing. Out here you don't really see the effects of a poor economy. Driving to a taco stand we saw on food network (it was a bit overrated, but not bad) almost every house and business was boarded up. Pretty sad.

Lincoln was a nice town, actually. I learned one important thing while out there. People from DC are ugly. My god, these girls were gorgeous. None of that orange fake tan shit, etc. You can also take a 20 dollar bill out to the bars, and get good and drunk. Imported beers run 1.50, Vodka/Redbull 2.75. Lincoln was a nice town though. Wasn't super crowded but friendly and down home-ish.

I spent most of my time doing Wedding based stuff, but it wasn't a bad place to visit (just stay far, far away from the Spaghetti Warehouse.)
