Wind Down / Wound Up

Oma gosh you guys there is SO much FUN stuff going on this weekend! It’s times like this that we’re so happy to be in Omaha. There’s a rejuvenation that happens around this time of year when everyone finally climbs out of their fox holes of hibernation and throw away their coats to enjoy the newly green surroundings.  Of course, we’re still stuck in our offices for at least eight hours a day, but that doesn’t mean we don’t make the most of our time off! So, as the work week winds down, Wise Owl + Sly Fox and crew are getting wound up for yet another FANSTASTIC TIME (aka weekend).

FRIDAY March 23        
  • OMAHA FASHION WEEK!! WO + SF look forward to these two times (yes two times!) a year where we can feel important and fancy like Anna Wintour even from our Row D seats (hey we’re cheap).  We chose to go to this Friday showing as our absolute FAVORITE local designers are showing their lines tonight. Go Princess Lasertron and Emma Erickson!! We CAN’T WAIT to see their fun, flirty, and fashionable ready to wear separates.
     
  •  Another Omaha female we look up to - Laura Burhenn and her band The Mynabirds are returning to Omaha after playing a few shows out of town, including SXSW. Check them out tonight at The Waiting Room beginning at 9 pm. It’s only $8 kids! We can GUARANTEE you will enjoy this one.        

  • Seriously, it’s FEMALE EMPOWERMENT WEEKEND here in Omaha as yet another local creative Heather Johanson will be opening her show entitled “If you Build It They Will Come: A Contemporary Ecological Survey In Omaha” at Birdhouse Collectibles located in the Mastercraft building in NoDo (North Downtown). If you can’t make it to the opening reception tonight, there will also be an artist talk on April 28th at 2 pm.       

  • There’s another great show over at O’Leaver’s tonight. Bear Stories is a local four piece instrumental group whose cresting soundscape will warm your heart and insides as they flood your body. Like Do Make Say Think and Explosions in the Sky? Then don’t miss this show, only $5 show beginning at 9:30 pm.

SATURDAY March 24
  • Looking for a new place to eat? Wraps & Crepes on 114th and Dodge just received a great review from the Omaha World Herald and definitely whet our appetite. $2.99 samosa?! Yes Please!!        

    
  • Sly Fox is punk rock at heart. By day she may dress in her business casual clothes, hair combed, tattoos covered, but by night? By night it’s black all the way. Black jeans, black band t-shirts, black skirts, black tights, black leather jacket. Brother’s Lounge is where this black lives and breathes and tonight you can thrash along with her to bands Peace of Shit, Baby Tears, and Digital Leather. Show starts at 9 pm, again only $5. 

  • LAST DAY FOR OFW! As the festivities wind down, House of Loom is hosting an extra special after party known as the Saturday Night Jig. Each Saturday HOL Co-Founder Brent Crampton along with guests host this high-fueled dance romp. Begins at 10 pm and it’s FREE!

SUNDAY March 25
  • Sly Fox will be enjoying an early brunch with her family at Lot 2 as her poor, but lovely, BF will be working pouring mimosas and serving up some delicious poached eggs. NOM NOM!!

  • It’s going to be another beautiful day, how about you enjoy the weather with some friends and a picnic up at Memorial Park?     

  • It’s a very exciting day for Sly Fox as she’s getting her fifth tattoo at local shop Black Squirrel. Her appointment’s at 4 pm, let’s hope it doesn’t sting too bad!!
