Y’all. So we’ve been talking about the different people that help make LocalAnyDay happen and I can’t believe I’ve gotten this far without mentioning our Tide team yet. They’re the development team, in charge of making our tech function correctly. Effectively, they’re the backbone of the whole operation. Any time you get an app update, Tide was behind it. Any time you see something change on the website, Tide was behind it. Literally any time you successfully find a deal on our site we send snaps to the Tide team because it’s their unique and precise skill set that makes all of this possible.
Oh, and did I mention that they’re hilarious, fantastic and bright people? Here’s what you need to know about them and their favorite places in Linc:
First there’s Sanger, aka Sang, in charge of programming. He says, “I love what I’m doing as a programmer as well designer, because they give me the freedom to be creative, and to learn the latest technology.” Sang gave me a few favorite restaurants and I can totally identify with that. Being asked to pick a favorite restaurant is like being asked to pick a favorite song. Or breed of puppy. It’s just not possible. ANYWAY, if you wanna grab a drink with Sang, check out Buffalo Wings and Rings for their wings and Bud Light (dream team). Otherwise, he recommends Vung Tau on Y St and 27th, Super Taco, and Phat Jack’s BBQ.
Sang Nguyen, Software Development
Next meet Steve Golden, Local’s web designer. He likes having the responsibility his position entails and being around inspiring people on the daily. His favorite place to grab a drink in Omaha is the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, which is bomb because you can catch a movie too.

Now I feel like we need to take a vote on which is the better dream team…beer and wings or beer and movies?? Is there anywhere in the area that does beer, wings and movies? If so, please let us know on social. I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know a bit about our Tide team, and maybe even discovered a new place to grab a bite in the area.
