    When Chef Enzo runs out of fresh basil for his popular Creamy Tomato Basil Soup, he doesn't worry for a moment. He simply makes a quick trip to a supplier nestled in his own backyard. Literally. A mini-jungle of tomatoes, eggplant and other various herbs are flourishing under the Omaha sunshine, nestled right next to the outdoor patio. Lush, green branches offer a unique - and incredibly fresh - harvest of ingredients for various signature dishes he creates daily at Zurlo's Bistro Italiano.

    "Chef Enzo is a master at manipulating flavor," marvels Lori Stangl, owner of the popular eatery. "While I'm not privy to numerous secrets behind his culinary masterpieces, I know our Chef meticulously sautés and seasons various assortments of specific ingredients just bring out all these savory aromas and exceptional tastes in his dishes. He insists on featuring only the freshest ingredients he can find - and you can taste the difference."

    Zurlo's Bistro is a popular choice for local restaurant patrons looking to enjoy lunch or dinner with both delicious and beautifully-presented modern Italian cuisine. The eatery, located at 132nd and Maple, has recently received various honors for their Sunday Brunch and catering services.

    Recent summer months have also kept the Bistro buzzing with various catering events, weddings in particular.

    "Memrical is one of our favorite local event partners," says Stangl. "Their staff is fabulous at helping us create a stunning presentation unique for a wedding celebration or other special occasions."

    The 402 Arts Collective is on a mission "to create and cultivate a vibrant network of artists who are committed to impacting the culture and serving the community."

    We have spent the past three years offering music lessons at various locations and supplementing public school curriculum and budgets with our instructors. There were classes scattered about the city with smatterings of students, artists, and musicians here and there.

    But we have discovered that a physical building matters. It's not just the concept of art. It's not just the creation of music, but a place for this to happen.

    Consequently, the 402 is renovating a historic building in the Benson neighborhood in the heart of Omaha's music scene. The upstairs restoration of this beautiful space is almost complete with lesson studios, meeting room, and a recording studio.

    The construction of the main level has also begun for an all-ages music venue nestled alongside Aromas Coffeehouse. The building will provide space for local musicians to perform, artists to display their work, and the community to gather. It turns out, however, that old buildings have surprises.

    Not just the good kind, but also the sagging-ceilings-with-fire-and-accessibility-codes-that-are-sorely-outdated-kind.

    So here we are, asking the community to help us finish a space that we will gladly return to you. Because, you see, the 402 is driven by the affiliation of artists that both instruct and learn in the collective, but it is also invested in the community of Benson as a whole. It will be a space to meet the neighbors, and have business meetings and study groups, and attend art showings, and support local bands. The 402 will not just foster the arts but expose the the broader community to them.

    The need is still great.

    We can meet it together.

    For the past 20 years, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has shown the world that it's still cool to swing, big band style. This high-energy, nine-piece ensemble honors the great musicians and music of the past while pushing the big band sound forward. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy first gained national attention when "You & Me and the Bottle Makes Three (Tonight)" and "Go Daddy-O" were featured in the 1996 film Swingers. Their latest album, Rattle Them Bones, reached #2 on Billboard's Jazz Album chart. The band's live concerts take the audience on a rambunctious rollercoaster ride filled with big horns, wild jungle-jazz rhythms, zoot suits and dancing flapper girls.

    Single tickets are available Aug. 9 at

    This month, SalesTalk welcomes Mark Hunter, author of the best-selling book, "High-Profit Selling", to share his secrets on what it takes to close sales without having to discount the price.

    Too many salespeople resort to discounting rather than honing their questioning and listening skills to uncover the customer's needs and desired benefits, Hunter says. Once discounting has become the go-to method in a sales force, the effect on profit can be severe in the short term and long term. Don't let your company fall victim to "discount culture."

    Union Bank & Trust will be hosting the networking and educational event at their main branch in West Omaha. Food and beverages will be provided. Register now at

    In an auspicious turn of events, the Omaha Home for Boys is getting two for the price of one for its September 26 Restoring Hearts with Bike Parts celebration.

    The Home's original speaker, Henry Winkler, had to cancel due to scheduling conflicts for a movie he's filming in London.

    Instead, Academy Award® winning actress Marlee Matlin is coming to Omaha to speak at the event. Winkler will introduce her by video while he's on location.

    "I am so excited to be able to join the Omaha Home for Boys on September 26, 2013 to celebrate the vocational training program at the "Helping with HorsepowerT Bike Rebuild" celebration," Matlin said. "My dear friend, Henry Winkler, has told me such great things about this event - I cannot wait to join you! See you on September 26 at the Hilton Omaha!"

    Matlin, who won an Academy Award and Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Lead Role in 1987 for Children of a Lesser God, is the youngest and only deaf actress to win the Best Actress statue.

    Her speaking platform explores themes of overcoming adversity, disability and self-doubt. A mother of four, Matlin is a staunch advocate and activist for the safety of children and children's rights.

    Winkler - who has been to Omaha several times for engagements - said he is disappointed he had to cancel, but he knows he's leaving everyone who attends the Home's celebration in very good hands.

    "I am so sorry that due to a production conflict with the BBC in England, I am unable to join the people of the Omaha Home for Boys at their Helping with HorsepowerT Bike Rebuild event on September 26, 2013," Winkler said. "I know that this event will raise much needed funding for the great work that the Home has done in the community for nearly 100 years.

    I wanted to update you on what I've been doing since I left the Chamber in November after 4 great years.

    Soon after I left the Chamber, I had the opportunity to do some sales consulting. I loved it and wanted to become an effective sales resource for local businesses.

    This past spring, Rick MacInnes and I formed a partnership and together we created the JButler Group. Rick and I have known each other for many years and with his expertise in strategic planning, sales operational support, marketing, consulting and project management, it was a great blend of experience and knowledge to launch our business.

    Through our consulting, as well as input and counsel from local business owners, we learned there is a need for services to help businesses effectively manage their sales resources so they can focus on running their companies.

    Planning or directing effective sales strategies and managing sales professionals, while running a business, is not always as efficient or effective as they'd like. The JButler Group is a resource to address and help solve those issues and maximize sales performance.

    We offer sales management expertise for local businesses and non-profits. We provide services to help businesses reach their goals, recruit and manage sales talent and develop sales and marketing strategies that drive success. For businesses who are trying to replace their sales management, we offer an interim solution until a replacement is named.

    We launched our website, this month. We can take the worry out of managing your most vital resource, your salespeople. We can help maximize performance by aligning our sales and marketing experience with your goals and objectives.

    If you would like more information, please contact us. If you know of a business needing our services, please tell them about us or provide us their contact information and we'll contact them. In the meantime, we hope you will check out our website,

    Thanks and we'll see you around very soon .
