You could always sell more paintings and move to San Juan. -Stacy, if you read this; That was for you!

Seriously, what options are you speeking of, in specific? Maybe we can help. I could always fly in cousin Hank, he's got some Asian and Pacific Islander in him. I think he mentioned he had some African American in him last night too..jkjkjkjk

Well if you have plenty of friends, you really aren't lonely, are you?

Ok, can we agree that the bars close too early? And we need atleast a Macy's.

Yeah, we can agree on that. To be fair though, that's pretty much on the state, not Omaha.

Macy's would be nice, but Von Maur is probably a step above them. I used to work for Macy's and know that Omaha is a place they have their eye on, but the current financial situation put a hold on that.

Yes, the 1am closing time for bars is pretty conservative.

I think if you are from KC I would generally go with your gut... not saying that Omaha is KC, but you know the midwest/plains states...

I do think the shopping options have been improving in Omaha in the past couple of years. Yes, there are plenty of chain stores (although of course Macy's and Saks are chains as well), but not all of them cheap...
Von Maur is pretty decent, although small - and it seems to be trying to be a Nordie's, even down to the piano player, but does not have the breadth of products available that one would find even at a small Nordie's - but does provide access to brands that are otherwise not available or are hard to find in Omaha. A full-sized Macy's would be nice, but I'm trying to picture a good location for one. I don't know how well a Saks would fare (I would prefer a Neiman's over a Saks, but I certainly don't see Neiman's there anytime soon).
Someone told me an Anthropologie opened at Regency, but it is pretty small (kind of like the Pottery Barn there). It has some fun home stuff sometimes. Does anyone who has been to a typical-sized Anthropologie know how the Omaha one compares size-wise?

Anyway, I agree that Omaha isn't quite there yet re: shopping options, but I do feel it is on its way...
