He's always on the lookout for new places to try...and to feature on Faturday Omaha! Dave's been known to mention his dislike of mayo and sour cream (although good aiolis and quality mayos may be granted a pass).Sam "Burger Specialist and Realist" Rocha is the Destroyer of least any in his path. Sam and Dave have been, in his words, "putting the hurt on food together for a long time, way back to 'Burrito Day.'" He's been known to tell it like it is, and is thankful that his voice sounds different than Dave's or TJ's.TJ "Dissertation Scientist" is the best cook in the crew, has the largest vocabulary, and possesses the quantity of research to match. He may sound a lot like Dave, but he isn't. TJ likes to break things down, and while his palate lines up with Dave's quite often, TJ likes his dishes with some spice.So join the Faturday Omaha crew every Saturday at 2 p.m. and tune in if you're hungry!
