I envision this area to be similar to what Aggieville could be if Manhattan were not run by tucks. Confirm?

It's pretty hipstery.  It's right next door to the new college world series stadium downtown.

In those eight years, Jason and Robb grew up and learned how to be businessmen, how to work with a bank and real estate developers. They borrowed several million dollars and built this new complex.

Opening the Slowdown and Film Streams, creating this community of artists, caught the attention of local developers. They spent hundreds of millions in the neighborhood—creating live/work spaces, cool offices in reclaimed warehouses, a bunch of nice new restaurants.

One developer said that those three friends—Jason, Robb, and Rachel Jacobson, who created the theater and club — have brought at least $100 million in value to the city. Jason assures me they didn't get any of it. They're all still broke.

Just goes to show you....No one ever got rich off trying to improve their FICO score.  Chalk another one up to Ramsey.

Making my first ever trip to this fine city this weekend for the CWS. The only thing I know about Omaha is what Adam Duritz sings about.

Where should we eat afterwards?

where are you staying?  what is the group dynamic?  If you want someplace near the stadium go here:

http://www.upstreambrewing.com/

It is in this area:

http://www.oldmarket.com/index.asp


Will be an absolute zoo during the CWS.  Should be fun.  The Old Market area is the kind of area that KC needs but lacks.

Not staying anywhere. Just coming up early Sunday morning for UVA game at 1:00. Might stay for the second game. Looking to grab dinner afterwards. Probably somewhere close to the stadium.

If you are using a GPS or something make sure it gives you the downtown location and not the west O location or you will be making a 20 minute drive to steve dave's hood

Downtown location is:
514 South 11th Street
Omaha, NE 68102

You could walk there from the stadium but it's about a mile.  You could probably park somewhere in the Old Market and walk to the game and then walk back to the restraunt (is what I'd do).

Thing I always remember about Omaha is that it's basically just famous for being where the rich guy (Bill Gates) lives.  But then dude lost everyone's money, went to jail and his kid ended up killing himself.
