Berkshire Hathaway Visitors Get Guide To Omaha

People are flying in from all over the world to hear from the oracle himself.

Today kicks off the start of the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting festivities.

Visitors are doing a lot more than just attending a meeting though.

Shareholders coming in to town are getting the Berkshire Hathaway Visitor's Guide.

Inside, it lists some points of interest in Omaha.

Visiting those locations, you'll find a lot of excitement.

For those who made the list, it's going to be a busy weekend.

Piccolo Pete's Restaurant, one of Warren Buffett's recommendations has been packed with visitors.

With so many customers, Piccolo's needs all staff on deck.

"We need everyone, because tonight you will not be able to even move in here, it'll be so busy, which, and you know, that's fun for us!" said Donna Sheehan on Friday night, co-owner of Piccolo Pete's.

Many are coming for a taste of another Buffett favorite, the giant root beer float.

"His wife said, 'You know, the only thing you need on the menu, is a root beer float, because Warren really likes root beer floats,' so I tucked that in the back of my mind, and I thought, 'Well I'll get the root beer, we have ice cream,' and the next time he came in, we had root beer floats, and that's how it started," said Sheehan.

Shareholders are also getting a taste of Omaha's art scene.

Anderson O'Brien Fine Art, which also made the list, is excited to show off local artists.

They say the meeting puts a great spotlight on the city.

"What we hear over and over is how wonderful Omaha is, and how they weren't expecting such friendly people, and quality," said Jo Anderson, owner of the gallery.

Shareholders have plenty to keep them busy, that is, if they ever get to finish that giant root beer float.
