Last Month Recap


Last month, we were joined by local business professionals to dine at McKinney’s Irish Pub for our Friends4Lunch networking event. That place never fails to satisfy! McKinney’s offers a wide range of appetizers, sandwiches, and entrees that are made true to their origin, such as Shepherd’s Pie, Bangers and Mash, Baked Fish and Chips, Corned Beef, and more. Keep in mind, though, they do change up their menu and experiment with some new favorites—which keeps it exciting to go back and try new things! Our group especially loved the Irish Nachos. The popular Haymarket bar also boasts a large selection of craft beer and Irish whiskeys. Since it was a Friday, many of us decided to toast the occasion with a beer. There were quite a few orders for Snake Bites put in from our party since it’s one of McKinney’s staple brews. We’d like to thank everyone who attended! It was a fun afternoon.

Greenfield’s on September 17, 11:30 a.m.

We are excited to announce that our next Friends4Lunch event will be on Thursday, September 17, at Greenfield’s! It’s been a while since we gathered at Greenfield’s, located at 7900 S 87th St. The restaurant recently reopened after being closed due to COVID, and rolled out a new menu in the process! The new menu offers a selection of breakfast and lunch items—some are designed around your favorite Greenfield’s recipes and some are completely new. The eatery really is the perfect brunch spot, complete with a variety of Mimosa and “Brewmosa” creations! To learn more and view the full menu, visit or call the restaurant at (402) 420-3232.

Cactus Modern Mexican & Cantina on September 24, 4–6 p.m.

Join us for our after-hours event on Thursday, September 24, at Cactus Modern Mexican & Cantina by Venue! The times just so happen to fall within their happy hour, as well. This is such a fun place to get a cocktail. They have a wide selection of draft beers, bottled brews, Cantina margaritas, signature tequila flights, Cantina wines, Cactus juice pitchers, and other signature drinks. There are also wonderful food items to nibble on if you get hungry, and you can’t go wrong with chips and dip. The full menu can be found online at or call the restaurant at (531) 500-4444.
Friends4Lunch and Friends4Drinks are awesome opportunities to connect with other business and organization leaders while supporting a local establishment.
