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.

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”

5 Best Buffet Options In Reno

For a city with a population of a little over 200,000, Reno relatively has a wide variety of options especially when it comes to food. And for all those foodies that are always on the lookout for dining options, there’s no better place to be. We never run out of options here. There are always new restaurants opening up, be it in Midtown or in and around the city. And it just keeps getting an Awful-Awful lot better.

What better way to binge on food and be spoilt for choice than buffets? Reno has a wide variety of buffet options. Too many options though can be overwhelming at times. Which is why I’m narrowing it down to the 5 best buffet options, based on personal favorites and people’s choice. Continue reading “5 Best Buffet Options In Reno”

Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry- Virginia City

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 12670761_10208077914520871_432287770151302690_ndollars, 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. Continue reading “Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry- Virginia City”

Genghis Grill: Seize Control And Build Your Own Bowl

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 build-your-own-bow1the guy who came up with that idea!

I was greeted by a smiling employee, everybody loves a smile! She then walked me through the process of ordering and how everything worked. I was constantly being checked on, water refilled, polite. All my service expectations were met. Continue reading “Genghis Grill: Seize Control And Build Your Own Bowl”

Maria’s : Authentic Mexican Food

Reno has come a long way from being just a crossing point of the Truckee river to becoming “The Biggest Little City In The World.” Reno’s nickname is a result of the wide range of cosmopolitan amenities in a city of its relatively small size. And a cosmopolitan city always invites more diversity, which in turn adds value to the city’s culture. Over the course of time, my goal is to try and explore as many cuisines in Reno as possible and map uncharted restaurants (google doesn’t count) so more people know about the awesome treats that Reno has to offer.

En route I-80 west, off Verdi, I stumbled upon a board that read “Maria’s Authentic Mexican Food.” I’ve tried Taco Bell, Del Taco and all these other fast fomariasod chains that offer “Mexican Food”, no offense, I do like what they offer, but trying the real deal’s been on my list for a while now. And what better place to run into than a family owned, locally run restaurant with the head chef himself being the owner of the place?
