Winter Activities in the Omaha Area

Cold as it is outside; we have not yet hit the point in Omaha where things have to slow down. Most winter planning takes a backseat to the chance of extreme snow closing things down in this city. Which is a real problem here since our weather patterns either have major storm activities by-pass us or funnel everything then have right onto our area.

Yet we are starting to see more event coordinators taking the chance and planning activities during our winter months. They are taking advantage of the fact that even after a major snow event; the Omaha streets are usually cleared within a day or so.

Saturday Dec. 5th The Omaha Science Fiction Education Society (OSFES) is hosting a Laser Tag Event at Zzzap! Laser Adventures starting at 7PM and going until everyone has had a chance to play. The organizers would like you to RSVP on their Facebook site. It will allow them to coordinate things with ZZZap! Management.

Sunday Dec. 6th will be the monthly meeting of Otaku Get Together at Scooters Coffee in the Old Market at 12th & Howard, Omaha, NE. They meet from 12-3PM, for more information their website is:

Every Saturday The Usual Suspects invite everyone to join them for the last matinee showing of a recently released movie at the Great Escape Theatre, 7440 Crown Point Avenue, Omaha, NE. That is usually around 5PM but show times vary. Here is a PDF of the films they are looking at going to over the next few months.

The third Tuesday of the month OSFES hosts a book discussion group at the Abrahams Branch of the Omaha Public Library. Our next meeting will be Dec. 15th at 6PM until 8PM. Whatever you have been reading lately and would like to discuss or encourage others to read will be welcome. From automatic reminders, join the Omaha_Sci-Fi_Discussion Yahoo group.
