You won’t be surprised by the excellent seafood selection at this oyster bar, but you may be surprised by the salads. We stopped by for lunch and found lots of excellent choices, like a lobster wedge and a tuna nicoise salad.

2. Infusion Brewing Company

Fun beers and an even more fun staff. One of our favorites was the Grambler Ale, but we definitely drank our way through a revolving 10-tap beer list.

3. Crescent Moon Ale House

“The original alehouse” of Omaha and the birthplace of the Reuben sandwich? It was heaven — and the Migration Week team’s favorite sandwich of the week. It did not disappoint. Crescent Moon advertises its Blackstone Reuben sandwich with secret ingredients, said to have been created at the famous Blackstone Hotel just a few steps away. And you won’t be disappointed by the huge craft beer list and the Alehouse Chicken.

4. Huber-Haus German Bier Hall

3578 Farnam St
Omaha, NE 68131
(402) 345-1708
It was our first “boot” experience at this German bier bar, complete with all the German lagers, pilsners, and dunkels you can dream of. Three two-liter boots and we had to call it a night.

5. Nebraska Brewing Company Brewery & Tap Room

Copy Link
6950 S 108th St
Lavista, NE 68128
(402) 934-0950
Visit Website
It’s the largest craft brewery in Nebraska (no surprise by that name), so we were lucky enough to get a tour of the space. The great staff introduced us to the “360 pop tabs” on their new cans, so naturally we tried a few Ale Storm and Cardinal pale ale cans.

6. Wilson & Washburn

1407 Harney St
Omaha, NE 68102
(402) 991-6950

This bar had the most unbelievable beet chips to pair with our beers and burgers, that were so unexpected and delicious — it’s hard to believe those beets at one point could have been good for you.

The menu was huge, but the Husker Roll, an asparagus and beef tenderloin roll, really stole the show here.

8. 1912 Bar

Copy Link
6201 Maple St
Omaha, NE 68104
1912 and all the bars on Benson showed us a good time. We made stops at 1912, Klug Park, Jake's, Beercade, and Reverb Lounge on our trip.

9. The Waiting Room Lounge

Copy Link
6212 Maple St
Omaha, NE 68104
It’s the perfect small music venue. We caught an awesome show with Har Mar Superstar that had the team dancing and making great use of a tambourine — need we say more?

10. Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium

Copy Link
3701 S 10th St
Omaha, NE 68107
(402) 733-8400

To get our dose of culture in, we had to get in a trip to the zoo to see the gorillas and lions.

11. Oregon Trail Monument

Copy Link
Oregon Trail
Omaha, NE 68131
History is important, and we all wanted to stop by this monument in honor of our favorite computer game. No one fell victim to dysentery during our visit.
