(Omaha World Herald)   The most popular bar in Nebraska? Well, it serves sushi and "saketinis" and of course, since Omaha is the Hipster Capital of the Midwest, you've never heard of it   (omaha.com ) divider line

Mmmmmm. Sushi at a place nowhere near the ocean. So you know it will be fresh.

Okay, since when do website hits equal popularity?

I've only been to two bars in Nebraska and I'm not sure one of them counts since it was in the hotel.  The other one sold something called "pickle cards" - sort of an instant lottery.  I think I got a free drink out of it.

It's like buying lotto tickets, but for stupid or drunk people.

Are you that cocksucker from my drama class that insisted this? Just cause you're from Fresno does not mean you're gettin it any fresher.

BTW, sushi is not raw. Sashimi is. Idiot.

Sushi =with vinegared rice. Sashimi = no vinegared rice. Only necessary difference. Any other aspect of either is pretty much interchangeable.

Most good sushi is frozen for a week or more before being brought to temp right before serving, yes.  The whole "sootchie!? in Omahaww??" thing is retarded.

This year, I moved to Nebraska to town called "Hickman", so I'm getting a kick, ...

And it's pretty much everything you would imagine in a town called "Hickman", except for the two huge new developments of McMansions.  That's what happens when Lincolnites want to be able to live in a small town and still go to work in Lincoln.
 
2014-01-01 10:03:55 AM  
I have dined at this place during a work trip, and it was great. I am not a sushi expert, but what they had was tasty to me. I would eat there again, but I doubt I will have to go Omaha ever again.

omaha here. blue is decent, to be sure. but a "saketini?" hip? yeah... i think not. no, for that, you'll need to hang out with the tattooed and mustachioed hipsters in benson quaffing "signature cocktails" at krug park.

you'd be amazed - they have sushi bars in chicago and minneapolis. i've even eaten sushi in geneva, switzerland. and nary an ocean in sight!

it's a crazy world.

blacksho89: That's a hog farm, not cattle. How can bacon come from the same animal as pig shiat?


it's a 'refining' process... all the nasty, disgusting, gross stuff is processed and filtered and excreted from the pig... leaving only the firm, supple deliciousness that is bacon.

I'm going to guess that there are a LOT of bars in Omaha that have a LOT more customers and a LOT more revenue... but their customers aren't 'checking in' on their iphones to facebook or foursquare... they're drinking beer and smoking cigarettes and trying to pick up wholesome mid western bar skanks and sometimes have a testosterone-fueled bar fight (which is quickly extinguished by a 'cooler' named Dalton and his crew).

I left the us in 2008, came back in 2011.  It is amazing the growth of the "hipster" culture.  Even in my little town of Ocala, Fl we have them.  The pool hall where I have tippled for years is starting to get an influx of chest tatted, scooter driving, hipsters.

Hell, when I was in Bogota in July they had farking Colombian hipsters milling about smoking camel wides.

Yep, I have eaten at 3 am in the mountains of Colombia. I must have been dreaming.

That post reminds me of the time when I was in San Francisco and the waitress was telling me about this wonderful invention called the shrimp cocktail that the bay area had created.  When I had to point out it was created in New Orleans.

Hey bay area, you did not invent everything and I am sure some Irish chap was putting whiskey in his coffee long before it became your signature drink.

I'm totally over saektinis already.  The best drinks to be had are utinis, but you can only get the really good ones at this little cantina I know in Mos Eisley.

Of course, the article just CONVENIENTLY forgets to make mention is that all the sushi joints in Omaha just so happen to be owned by the Unification Church (the Moonies) via their International Seafood and True World Foods rackets.

To anyone claiming you can't have good sushi if you are far away from the ocean, almost all fish you eat has actually been frozen.  The boats stay out a long time and usually freeze the fish after they catch it and keep it frozen until it gets to the market where they defrost it and lay out it for you to buy.  If you don't actually see it alive, it's been frozen.
