Nebraska's Beautiful Capital City

This post is long overdue. Had a great time on a recent trip to Lincoln to host a booth at the Nebraska Association of Convention and Visitor's Bureaus' Meeting Planner reception. With several children living in Lincoln, there's never a shortage of things to do.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn downtown, on the 10th floor. Had a great view overlooking the revered Memorial Stadium.
For some reason, even though neither the University of Nebraska nor the Salt Dogs were playing baseball that night, the lights remained on at the Haymarket Park baseball field.
And, of course, where would I eat in Lincoln during the week of the 2009 season premiere of Deadliest Catch except Crabby Bill's? The food was great, by the way.
And, for all those of you who would imagine that Nebraska doesn't know what crab pots are - evidence to the contrary! May be tinier than those you're used to seeing being hoisted over the side of a Bering Sea crab boat...
Had a great breakfast at the famous "The Mill" coffee shop before setting up for the reception.

I should also have taken a picture of the "From Nebraska Gift Shop", since that was where I had to go to buy a gift for a give-away at the reception since I forgot to bring one from North Platte. Great place to find all things locally grown or made.

Thanks for stopping by. The coffee is always on.
