Got it?

Unknown-1Well, while some of you are still figuring it out, let me tell you about a little gem in our city by the name of Aksarben. I love this neighborhood! ♥

For decades, it was the premier civic and entertainment gathering location in Omaha.

Now, its racetrack, grandstand, coliseum, and other facilities are replaced with a pedestrian friendly, mixed-use development.

It encompasses amazing places like restaurants, businesses, apartments, a park, and an amphitheater.


Oh, and there’s a pretty fantastic place to get a cupcake.

Ah cupcakes……

How I love you and yet hate you five minutes after you’re gone.

Alas, I cannot stop myself.

So, Jones Bros. Cupcakes is the bomb place in midtown Omaha for a sweet treat. I personally like the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake (which is the daily cupcake on Sundays and Tuesdays). But get this! If you “Like” Jones Bros. Cupcakes on Facebook, you can “Name it and Claim it.” First, check out the cupcake of the day (select days only) on their Facebook page, then walk into the joint, name the cupcake flavor of the day, and you just got yourself a free cupcake!

And tell them Aubrey sent you. Just kidding, they have no idea what my name is. I’m just the gal that eats three more cupcakes per sitting than I should.

Happy Eats!


Sometimes, Jones Bros. even gives you a free slice of cake with lunch. What?!
