Retrofitted from former city buses, Nebraska Party Bus's 13-vehicle fleet conveys revelers about town in limo-like luxury. The air-conditioned transports include a luxuriously upholstered 30-footer with a private party area in the rear, encouraging between-bar mingling, whereas a pair of 42-seaters are perfect for ferrying wedding guests to receptions or back to central casting's rent-a-wedding-guest unit. The buses serve Omaha, Lincoln, and Council Bluffs, offering patrons comfortable conveyance throughout the metro area.
A small produce stand sits in a parking lot off of 77th and Cass Streets in Omaha. Garden aficionado Karen Kruse runs this roadside produce stand—a large tent and a white truck—with fruits and vegetables that are picked daily at local farms. Her selection changes throughout the summer season but almost always includes sweet corn, melons, tomatoes, peppers, and peaches. For a complement to meals, try one of her locally made jellies or honey. The stand is open, weather permitting, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
Sometimes, it’s best to take a hands-off approach. The techs at Fantasy’s Car Wash take this advice to heart every time they come to work, delivering touch-free car washes that have earned their shops the “top car wash” designation in Omaha Magazine’s Best of Omaha contest every year since 2008. Cars cruise in and out of the automated wash tunnels at outposts spread throughout the state, with many locations also boasting filling centers for diesel fuel or propane.
The eco-conscious candlestick makers at EcoScents engineer a vast array of aromatic soy-based candles and flameless soy square burning lamps using premium, all-natural ingredients. The biodegradable soy candles burn up to three times as long as their paraffin brethren without releasing toxins or smoke rings that turn into collars for pet ghosts. Every candle is hand-poured to ensure consistency, and cotton wicks receive a vegetable-based wax treatment to reduce smoke.
