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.
“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 genuine 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”
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 finally 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”
National Beer Day is observed annually on April 7th. Celebrate with a pint of pale ale, lager, stout, wheat beer or pale ale.
One of the world’s oldest prepared beverages, beer possibly dates back to 9500 BC when cereal was first farmed. It is recorded in the written history of ancient Iraq and ancient Egypt.
Beer is the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage. Following water and tea, it is the third most popular drink overall. Continue reading “NATIONAL BEER DAY”
Summer is almost here, and everyone is waiting to show off their hot bods, 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”
I love pizza. I eat pizza. I dream pizza. And I’m quite confident that 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! Continue reading “YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, SO I AM PIZZA”
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”
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. Continue reading “Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry- Virginia City”
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!
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”
