Here is another shot from Ribfest. These booths were in the bottom corner of yesterday's photo.

Update: Oops. I looked closer....these booths were actually to the RIGHT of the booths in the bottom corner of yesterday's photos. :-) There were a lot of booths!

Storm clouds rolling in....

The last week or so has been full of thunderstorms. I love to watch and listen to storms. My friend, Chris Saub, and his band played at Ribfest. I'll post more pictures in the next few days of the booths close up, but I love this one of the clouds coming in. As soon as the band finished packing up and got on the road, it started pouring.

A question of Black and White...

Most of my photos lately have been of music events, so I decided to give you a break from that and show you a little bit more of the city. This photo was taken at Village Pointe. It was not so many years ago that the most frequent dining that went on in this area was done by cows. Ok, well, really I don't know what exactly was there, but there wasn't much. Now, however, you will find a beautiful and classy shopping, dining, and entertainment area. During the summer, there is an open area where you can bring a lawn chair and listen to live music. My friend Chris, who you have read about before, has played there a few times. The area really is quite pretty, with flowers and sculptures in the roundabout driving areas, like the one in the picture.

Braving the heat.....

Here is part of of the crowd who braved the incredible heat to stay outside and listen the music at the Taste of West Omaha. The blue and white striped tents housed some of the different food vendors who participated.

Rock Stars!!

Here is Lemon Fresh Day again, along with my beautiful friend and amazing business mentor, Aileen. She wants to be a rock star and she put on a great show up on stage - for one song at least.

Singing at the Taste of West Omaha

Here is my friend, Danny Garcia, singing with Lemon Fresh Day at the Taste of West Omaha. Roja, a Mexican restaurant is in the background. The stage was set up in the parking lot, and there were many food booths from different vendors, and tables set up all around the lot. According to the event's website, despite the extreme heat, over 15,000 people attended the weekend 2 day event on August 4th and 5th. It was definitely hot out there, but it was a lot of fun. When the guys played the sun was pretty much right behind them, so I didn't get great pictures of the stage, but some of the closeups came out alright.

I actually watched another band!!

I have a couple of friends who laugh because the only band I go to see all of the time in Omaha is the Chris Saub Band. Well, I recently went to a couple of shows of another band - Lemon Fresh Day. They played a couple of weeks ago at the Prestige World Class Lounge. We had a great time at the shows, and I got some fun shots of my friend Danny in the band.

Hello, again!!

I have posted a photo of Myth before, but I had to show them off again! Omaha is getting cooler all the time - and this place is one of my favorites! Brian and Joanna, the owners in the picture, are fun and friendly, and extremely COOL! If you are in Omaha, you have to head on down to the Old Market, stroll around and take in the sights, then grab a table at Myth and cool off with one of their tasty martinis. On Thursdays, you can sit back and listen to some of Omaha's finest musicians.

*Now, really, if that didn't merit a comment from a certain lurker out there, then I will have to draw on some creativity that I don't think i have in me!! :-)
