Best burger joints

The Nebraska Beef Council named the finalists for the state's best burger this week.

The list: Big Red Restaurant & Sports Bar, which has locations in Omaha, Lincoln, Norfolk and Fremont; Blanc Burgers and Bottles in Omaha; Fred and Ruby's Parkway Lanes in Lincoln; Gourmet Butcher Block in Gretna; Greenfield's in Lincoln; Mookie's in Minden; Runza restaurants, which have locations statewide; Sinful Burger Sports Bar and Grill in Bellevue; Stella's in Bellevue; and Tommy Colina's Kitchen in Omaha.

The council asked Nebraskans to vote online to name the 10 finalists, and more than 100 restaurants statewide received nominations. A panel of anonymous judges will evaluate the burgers based on taste, proper cooking and appearance. They will choose a winner by the end of April.

For more information on the finalists and contest results, visit www.nebeef.org.

Recruiting for run

Cantina Laredo is playing host to a recruitment party to encourage runners and walkers to sign up for the second annual Kili Is My CASA 5.8 kilometer run to benefit Court Appointed Special Advocates for children. CASA is a charitable organization that aims to provide a voice for abused and neglected children in the court system.

Omahan John MacKenzie organized the run after he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, in 2010 to benefit CASA. The5.8K run — the same length as the height of the mountain — takes place July 14 at Midtown Crossing in Omaha.

The Cantina Laredo event begins at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Last year's race winners will be at the party, and attendees can sign up for the race and eat Mexican food. Ten percent of sales that evening will benefit CASA.

For more information on the run, visit kiliismycasa.bbnow.org. To RSVP for the Cantina Laredo event, call 402-345-6000.
