It’s Decadent Dessert Month on Star City Buzz and for our last stop, we take a trip to Stauffer’s Café and Pie Shoppe located at 5600 South 48th Street here in Lincoln.

It’s a movie about a fake movie that’s being used to help hostages escape Iran and it’s based on a true story. Ben Affleck directs and stars in Argo with great actors like John Goodman and Bryan Cranston among many others. The movie is loosely based on a declassified operation by the CIA.

There are quite a few celebrities that come from Nebraska. One of the most famous is a comedian known for the catch phrase “Git ‘R’ Done.” Larry the Cable Guy was in town for the Husker game with former Husker and NFL player Roger Craig last weekend. Star City Buzz snagged an interview with the two Nebraska greats. Watch the video to see what these two had to say about Husker football and the road to stardom.
Finally, the six day music festival Lincoln Calling presented a lot of local bands to Lincoln. One of those was a fairly new funky rock and roll band called Fraternal Durango. The band features multiple talented musicians who vibe together creating a fresh sound that will make you swing your hips.
