Want to take a ride back in time? Well, it’s just 30 minutes away from Reno! Once the richest city in world, Virginia City’s mining revenue amounted to millions of dollars, which would relatively equal billions today. Just a peek of this tiny town gives you the chills. The classic Victorian-era architecture, the Old West Saloons, the authentic board sidewalks, 19th century homes, the “Haunted” Washoe Club or Grandma’s Fudge Factory (cause who doesn’t like fudge right?). All this in just a cliff-note of what this place has to offer, and riding horse-drawn carriages is a given!
But what got me there was St. Patrick’s Day. Each year this historic town celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with a ballsy festival. The Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry brings more than 3,000 people to sample this “delicacy,” take part in the Leprechaun Bar Crawl and watch the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

How convenient would it be if everyone of us owned a restaurant where the only person to blame for insipid food would be the customer? Doesn’t sound real does it? Well, Genghis Grill is one of those places. They say,”There’s only one person in charge at Genghis Grill: You. Seize control and build your own bowl.” Voila to the guy who came up with that idea!
For a while now I’ve been scouring The Biggest Little City In The World for some authentic Indian food, “Maa Ke Haath Ka Khaana” which is a Hindi phrase for “Mom-made Food.” And finally, after digging around for awhile, I stumbled upon Thali.
Thali offers 100% organic vegetarian food and an experience like no other Indian restaurant in Reno. Its authenticity comes from the owners’ vision of serving completely organic, locally grown food and deliver an authentic experience to their customers. Serj, one of the owners, has pushed the limits by learning and practicing organic farming for a year before stepping into the restaurant business. They buy most of their groceries from the Great Basin Community Food Co-Op , which sells locally-grown food and is community-owned. Continue reading “Thali-Authentic Indian Food In Reno”→
The Biggest Little City In The World has a wide variety of nightlife choices for a relatively small city. Be it Downtown or Midtown Reno, the area brings heat with exotic dance clubs and matchless music venues, raising the bar, literally. Closing times are ambiguous. “Last call?” What is that? Around here, we call the shots!
Reno is on 24/7 and for many people sundown means that the day has just begun. Be it a weekday or weekends, things aren’t very different. Go dancing at clubs like Edge or Lex featuring today’s hottest music, GoGo dancers and VIP bottle service; The Brew Brothers , located at the Eldorado Casino which is popping on almost any day of the week; or Aura Ultra Lounge, where you can dance the night away while sipping your favorite libations.
