Join us for a four course dinner to benefit Feline Friendz, an awesome kitty cat rescue that serves the community through education, fostering, adoption, low-cost veterinary assistance and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR.)

Our menu is focusing on all of the local, seasonal produce that Nebraska has to offer. Think lots of fresh, green flavors and creamy textures with with some crunch. And we haven’t forgotten the strawberries.

    The flowers are just so wonderful to look at and the menu are just one amazing package. Wish my hubby would consider doing some romantic thing by going over some fancy restaurant by the weekend or I would more prefer him doing the cooking himself. How I wish!
