Reno Earth Day 2016

We are now entering the 46th year of a movement that continues to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion, and motivate people to action.

In 1970, the year of our first Earth Day, the movement gave voice to an emerging consciousness, channeling human energy toward environmental issues. Forty-six years later, we continue to lead with groundbreaking ideas and by the power of our example.

And so it begins. Today. Right here and right now. Earth Day is more than just a single day — April 22, 2016. It’s bigger than attending a rally and taking a stand.

Laana Thai Cafe – Reno

“Lanna Thai Café was built as a labor of love by Chef Pim, a home taught chef from a small village outside of Chiang Mai Thailand. Pim’s mother and village guided her in the traditional ways of authentic Thai cooking. In building her restaurant she pledged not to dilute the exotic tastes of Thailand with over-Americanization. Her vision is to share a 1407522204000-REN0806-Menu-Watch-Lanna-Potstickersjpggenuine Thai experience with every guest.”- Got this off their website, hopefully they stand by it. I wouldn’t know because I haven’t really tried Thai food in Thailand, but I’ve heard it’s awesome, especially if you’re a fan of street food.

But I do like American “Thai” food and Laana Thai Cafe was my second shot at it in Reno, after Ruby Thai restaurant in the food court at Meadowood Mall, which was quite mediocre.  Continue reading “Laana Thai Cafe – Reno”

Roberto’s Taco Shop – Reno

From serving tortillas to stores and restaurants to becoming a fast food chain, Roberto’s has come a long way. Started by Roberto and his wife Dolores Robledo, it was one of the first drive-thru taco shops that served authentic and inexpensive Mexican food.

With over 50 years of experience in the food industry, they final9787655_G.pngly decided to open up in
Reno on Feb 1, 2016. Started off as a 24-hour restaurant on N. Virginia Street, they closed down by evening on the day of opening. Why? Food shortage! The crowd was crazy with long lines and people going hungry and wild. I had to go check out for myself what the hype was all about, and so I did. Continue reading “Roberto’s Taco Shop – Reno”

RENO SLIDE THE CITY

Summer is almost here, and everyone is waiting to show off their hot bodsslide1.jpg, and chill out. What better place to do it than in the heart of the city? It’s not every day you can strut through town with your swimsuit on. Imagine sliding through a water slide that’s nearly 1000 feet long, that’s the size of almost 3 football fields. And the best part, the slide goes through the streets of Reno!

Slide the City is bringing their massive waterslide to Reno on June 4. The giant, one thousand-foot waterslide and block party planned for Ralston Street is open to all ages.Families, friends and neighbors are invited to take a break from the heat, speeding through three city blocks on inner tubes. The block party will also include food, music, local vendors and street entertainers. Continue reading “RENO SLIDE THE CITY”

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, SO I AM PIZZA

I love pizza. I eat pizza. I dream pizza. And I’m quite confident thPizza-Box-Stool-640x640at there are more than a few people out there who feel the same way.

For the last few days my craving for pizza has multiplied incoherently. It must be to vent out the excessive work-load from college (eating pizza makes me happy), or maybe the fact that the boys and I are partying too hard- which again almost every time ends with pizza. Either way, I’ve been eating a lot of pizza, and I’ve been trying out different places in Reno every day. And what I tried last night tops the chart without a doubt! Here goes the count-down!
