The city of Omaha is excited LSU is back in the College World Series. Tracie McPherson with Visit Omaha says they always enjoy when Tiger fans visit, because the Purple and Gold Nation love a good party. She says there is a speakeasy where fans can experience a unique time.
“You have to go to the Looking Glass Cigar and Spirit Shop and you have to say ‘I’m here to see the wicked rabbit’, a secret door opens and that lets you back into the bar area.”
The Tigers face Florida State on Saturday at 7pm. McPherson says there are a variety of different craft breweries in walking distance to TD Ameritrade Park. She says even though Louisiana is known for food, they can get a taste of some world-renowned Omaha steaks.
“There are lots of places to get a great Omaha steak, you can get a great Omaha burger here. We’re also known for the reuben sandwich.”
McPherson says while waiting for the first pitch, fans can tailgate in Baseball Village. She says a new activity to enjoy is the Baseball Hall of Fame at the CenturyLink Center.
“It’s very immersive and interactive. They have an exhibit where you can put yourself in the dugout, put yourself on the ball field right next to some of the most famous players today and take a selfie and it looks like you’re right there.”
