Review: At Let it Fly, even a sports lover’s spouse can find something to appreciate

By Sarah Baker Hansen

I have written about (and eaten at) a lot of sports bars in the decade I’ve been writing about restaurants, and I can tell you this with some confidence: Most don’t have very good food. Food often feels like an afterthought, a requirement, a third most important thing after Miller Lite and big televisions.

Let it Fly, which opened with a flourish in June in the Capitol District, is an exception. I was not sure what to expect going in, though I saw some posts on social media from people I trust and it looked, frankly, pretty fancy for a sports bar.

In reality, it is pretty fancy for a sports bar. There is an actual cocktail menu, for starters. A wine list, a brunch menu, several entrees — steak frites at a sports bar? — and, as I tried for myself, several solid versions of bar food staples like pizza, wings and burgers. It might be the most food-focused sports bar in town. Others in the neighborhood are going to need to up their game to compete.

And don’t worry: Let it Fly has the biggest television set I have ever seen.

Let it Fly is owned by Mike Miller, a former Memphis Grizzlies player and current Memphis Tigers coaching staff member, whose son, Mason, plays basketball for Creighton. The restaurant is run by CEO Al Lopez.

Miller also runs a location of the bar in Sioux Falls, S.D. and a second in Germantown, Tenn. There are already rumors flying around a second Omaha Let it Fly location to open sometime soon in west Omaha. (I tried to set up an interview with one of the owners but did not hear back from them before my deadline.)

I think I was most curious to try two dishes at Let it Fly: A burger, of which there are several, and the chicken wings.

The classic cheeseburger, which I ordered medium, arrived a bit past that point, but with a nice, charred exterior topped with melted cheddar, a pile of tasty pickles, lettuce, tomato and a brioche bun. I added the sauteed mushrooms for an extra buck and was glad I did: they added a meaty richness I liked a lot. Fries are shoestring style — they did not seem house made to me — and arrived crisp and hot.

The wings come in orders of six or a dozen, and diners can choose one sauce per six wings; we went with the interesting sounding “barbecue dry rub,” but probably wouldn’t do that again because I think, like we did, that most diners would find that particular order of wings a bit too dry. Nonetheless, they were nicely cooked, with a crispy outside and tender meat. The dill-spiked Ranch is good for dipping, but I most enjoyed them with a side of Mike’s Hot Honey I requested for pizza crust, but it is simply good on everything. Comparatively, I’d say I still like the char buff wings at Addy’s, which has a location just a couple blocks away, more — they’re larger, and meatier — but the wings at Let it Fly are a close second.

We managed to check out one item from the brunch menu on a Sunday, the LIF “hangover burrito,” which appeared rather restrained, I thought, considering its name. Chorizo is the main attraction here, and there’s plenty of it, nicely cooked and paired with potatoes and scrambled egg; we wished for a bit more egg in the end. It comes with both red and green salsas, plus pico de gallo and sour cream.

We sat both at the bar and in the dining room on our two visits (and have done the same at several “unofficial” visits in the past.) Sometimes service at the bar is great, but sometimes, like it was the day we first visited for this review, it is spotty. We had to ask for ketchup and refills of iced tea; the bar was not busy, and several employees were standing around.

Another day, when we went in for dinner, the restaurant was busy (the WWE was having an event at the nearby CHI Health Center that night) but our food came promptly and our server was attentive, at one point, even reciting the entire draft and bottle beer list from memory.

That evening we tried two of the cocktails on the list: a tangy margarita with a salted rim and an herbal whiskey smash. Both were balanced, nicely garnished and flavorful. I think Matthew might have said it best: “A passable sports bar cocktail list? That has never happened in Omaha.”

Nor has a passable wine list, which they also have, and which I in particular appreciate. Matthew tried the “Let it Fly” Lager, produced in partnership with Infusion Brewing, and said it’s the kind of unobjectionable but tasty beer that’s both local and appealing to pretty much everyone.

I felt like we were taking a risk ordering the meat lovers pizza, but every time I’ve been to Let it Fly, I’ve seen a lot of diners ordering pizza, and now I get it. In spite of my low expectations, it has a house-made, flavorful crust with a chewy edge, and the meat lovers comes topped with good quality pepperoni, soppressata, fennel salami and sweet sausage. It had plenty of flavor and a balanced but acidic tomato sauce.

We threw in a Philly just to try something from the sandwich menu; it was good, not great. Thick sliced beef intermingled with sliced peppers and sauteed onions on a hoagie bun, no surprises there.

Sitting in the main floor dining room at Let it Fly, I counted a minimum of 30 television sets surrounding our table. There’s also a second floor of seats, with a balcony of sorts featuring a low bar where the seats face the absolutely enormous television set on the west wall, which their website tells me is a 50-foot LED screen. You absolutely cannot miss it. I have a hard time imagining missing a single play at this sports bar.

Like I said, I’ve watched many a Chicago Cubs game or a Nebraska game at a sports bar with Matthew, and rarely have I found much to write home about.

Many times, I’ve wondered why Omaha can’t come up with a sports bar that features both a nice cocktail and a good burger.

Let it Fly is answering the call. And while it’s not perfect, it’s damn close.

The Big Story

Massive Construction at UNMC

The University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Project NExT first phase – now known as “Project Health: Building the Healthiest Nebraska” – will move to a more detailed design phase after a vote last week by the University of Nebraska Board of Regents.

The Regents’ unanimous decision cleared the way to engage design and construction planning teams for the transformational academic health science initiative. UNMC leaders said that, following a public bid project, they hope to have these planning teams in place by the end of this calendar year.

“The regents’ action allows us to move forward on the first phase of planning for this highly ambitious project,” UNMC Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold said. “UNMC always strives to be the preeminent health education institution in our nation; this initiative ensures that our clinical learning spaces are conducive to modern health education, and it will provide for dramatic expansion of facilities for clinical/translational research, which our current and future students and residents require. Furthermore, this new facility will allow us to provide more health care workforce for Nebraska and beyond, something that is desperately needed in rural and urban communities across the state.”

Project Health: Building the Healthiest Nebraska will position the medical center to improve its capacity to address the health care needs of Nebraska. It will provide needed campus enhancement to UNMC’s research, education, clinical and community service missions at its campus in Omaha. Thousands of UNMC students receive required clinical education annually in Omaha at Nebraska Medicine, UNMC’s primary clinical partner. After graduation, many of these trainees live and work throughout Nebraska.

The enhancements include:

1. Building increased academic, research and patient care capacity in new facilities, which – based on the Phase One investments and bolstered by future phases – is estimated to generate between $600 million and $1.1 billion in incremental revenue annually by Year 7 of the project. The Building the Healthiest Nebraska phase itself has the opportunity to support 4,272 additional jobs directly and indirectly and provide $39.4 million in state tax revenue

2. Building our state health workforce through class size and residency expansion, which will add many more UNMC educated health professionals. This includes adding many newly minted physicians to the Nebraska workforce annually by 2030.

In addition, Project Health: Building the Healthiest Nebraska will allow UNMC to add approximately 100 new physician residency training positions by 2030. In addition to more health care workers in rural and urban communities, the annual economic impact of these student and resident slots will add hundreds of millions of dollars to the Nebraska economy.

Phase Two of Project NExT, “Regional Federal Partnerships,” will potentially provide expansion of facilities for key regional partnerships, while Phase 3, “National Federal Partnerships,” will potentially create a joint civilian-military medical surge facility through additional public-private partnerships. The partnership would expand federal medical surge capability and support the National Disaster Medical System training run by the federal Department of Health and Human Services.

At the same meeting, the regents approved the Campus Operations and Research Excellence (CORE) project, a 6-story building to be constructed on the southwest corner of Saddle Creek Road & Farnam Street.​​​​​​

The CORE building will have two floors for administrative business functions and retail space, one floor to support computer-based research, and three floors for wet lab use. The City of Omaha will build a parking garage next door.

Construction on the CORE Building will begin this fall with completion expected in February 2026.

Seventeen Nebraska nonprofits will share $70 million in grant funds awarded by the state for “shovel-ready” building projects, according to Nebraska Examiner. The biggest winner of grants announced Wednesday by the state Department of Economic Development is Omaha’s Creighton University, which is to receive $30 million.

The Shovel-Ready Capital Recovery and Investment Act Program passed last legislative session and provides additional funding from the state’s general fund. The funds are to assist nonprofits with capital projects that were delayed due to the pandemic or that are to provide a positive economic impact in the state.

Wall Street: The Week in Review

with George Morgan

Views and opinions expressed herein are solely those of the author.

Everybody knows Mr. Market has a distant cousin, Mr. Bond Market. For three decades, Mr. Bond Market operated in the shadows. Then two and a half years ago, the peanut butter hit the fan.

The government started spending money like a drunken sailor – my apologies to my many drunken sailor friends – inflation exploded like a California wild fire, and the Fed joined the fray with their imitation of clowns at a parade. Now, all of a sudden, the cousin is center stage and Mr. Market’s scrambling to figure out what’s going on.

While investors are aware of Mr. Bond Market, they don’t know many details. He’s from the same gene pool as our Mr. Market, but he has different parents. In dollar terms, Mr. Bond Market is $15 trillion larger than Mr. Market. What has Mr. Market’s underwear in a wad is that his clueless cousin has loaned 60 percent of this net worth to the US Treasury.

Mr. Market and his cousin have some similarities, but many differences. Unlike the stock market, the bond market has no central exchange where trades are made and prices reconciled. Almost all bond activity is conducted among deep-pocketed commercial dealers. Unlike the electronic stock market, bond trades are negotiated between two human beings on an old fashioned telephone.

And unlike the stock market, there is no bond market index comparable to the S&P 500, thus mom and pop are unaware of Mr. Bond Market’s recent hissy fit.

However, Cramer and his sycophants are using the yield on the 10-year Treasury note as their benchmark, which has soared over 155 basis points in the last few weeks. During that same period the Fed raised their interest rate 25 basis points.

The conventional wisdom is that when investors buy bonds, they stuff them in a drawer and wait for them to mature. NOT! The institutional buyers – banks, mutual funds, retirement funds and corporations – treat them as profit centers and use them as a holding pot for short term cash. On a dollar basis, there is four-to-fuve times more activity in the bond market than in the stock market.

When the government started its spending spree, they turned to the Treasury to fund it. The Treasury went to the bond market with trillions of dollars’ worth of bonds for Mr. Bond Market to sell. The response of Mr. Bond Market’s friends was under whelming. So, into the fray jumps the Fed yelling, “I’ll buy! I’ll buy!”

The $64,000 question is where will the Fed get the money to pay for the government’s drunken spending spree? In terms even a second grader can understand, they turn on their printing press and just like magic, there it is!
