This Month’s Excursion:
This month’s 100 Things excursion will be to Omaha’s Joslyn Art Museum, followed by lunch at Noli’s Pizzeria and dessert at Coneflower Creamery.
About the Joslyn: Joslyn Art Museum was a generous gift to the people of Omaha from Sarah H. Joslyn (1851–1940) in memory of her husband, George A. Joslyn (1848–1916). The extraordinary Art Deco building was hailed not only as an important addition to the city of Omaha, but to modern American architecture as well. In 1938 it was listed among the 100 finest buildings in the United States. Today it is known as the principal fine arts museum in Omaha.
About Noli’s Pizzeria: Inspired by the Italian Pizzeria slices of New York City, Noli’s brings quality traditional, artisan pizza to Omaha’s Blackstone district by using seasonal and local ingredients.
About Coneflower Creamery: Tim and Lisa Trudell’s book, 100 Things to Do in Omaha Before You Die, nods toward Coneflower Creamery for its iconic butterbrickle ice cream, first introduced in the 1920s by the Blackstone Hotel.
