• Indian • Lincoln
Booked 19 times today
The first Oven Restaurant, located in the heart of downtown Lincoln, has been around since 1988 and owned/operated by a dedicated family of chefs who have been creating Indian cuisine for over twenty seven years. The Oven Restaurants specialize in Northern Indian Cuisine which is known for its rich colors, flavor profiles and a unique style of cooking in a clay oven, called the Tandoor. Chicken, shrimp and lamb marinate for several hours in a yogurt and spice mixture and placed on skewers while various breads are being hand made by our chefs fresh each day. The skewers and breads are then placed in the tandoor over an open flame where breads are cooked to perfection and the rich flavors are sealed in to ensure tenderness and quality of the meat. Whether you enjoy the historic Haymarket atmosphere to the relaxed vibe of the Cellar, we have what you want!

• Unspecified • Lincoln
Booked 18 times today
The Screamers concept was conceived by Kevin Witcher, a long-time veteran of the music and entertainment industry. Both the name and the concept is a tribute to The Scarlet and Cream Singers (University of Nebraska’s show choir, of which Kevin was a member) and its founding musical director Ray Miller. Ray created the group in 1972 to be the “ambassadors” of the university’s alumni association. The Scarlet and Cream Singers would go on for the next 35 years performing across the U.S. and abroad before disbanding in 2008. Although Ray Miller had retired from directing the group, he continued to be a mentor until his death in 2012. Scarlet and Cream will honor Ray’s legacy and the lives he touched throughout his career by continuing his work of cultivating local talent, giving them a place to learn and grow.
