Omaha Food Blog Shenanigans

First off, let me say Happy New Year, Omaha.

There, pleasantries out of the way. It's been a little over a year since the four original geeks started typing their thoughts out and sending them into the ether under the assumption that other people might give a damn about what we thought about food. Since that time, we've added a fifth to our number, seen our daily hit counts trend upward, and been lucky enough to have some big names from the Omaha blogging scene drop by and leave comments (snekse from and The Critical Wife from, to name-drop). Snekse in particular has been very welcoming, and has been pushing for a while in an attempt to meld the disparate pieces of Omaha food culture on the internet into some kind of coherent whole.

In that vein, I present a link to Gastronomic Fight Club, where snekse announces the creation of the Omaha Food Bloggers blogroll. As he notes in his post, most of the food bloggers for Omaha aren't professional critics (this makes G.R(F) the Pee-Wee Football of food blogs, I suppose). Since a lot of us we do this in our spare time, updates can be occasionally sporadic as the demands of Real Life rear their ugly head. With the amalgamated blog roll, you're guaranteed to get the fastest delivery of content without having to find and set up feeds for each individual blog.

When I've recovered a little more from last night's celebrations, we have a review of a truly interesting restaurant to post, and I will get the feed set up on the sidebar of the blog. I'm sure I speak for all the geeks when I say we thank you for your readership, and we look forward to eating our way through another year of Omaha cuisine, and then telling you all about it.
