Go See The Unbelievables at the Eldorado

The Unbelievables Christmas Extravaganza is an awesome show for adults and kids alike. The show headlines Sara and her dog Hero from America’s Got Talent so it was hard for me not to draw comparisons with other tv shows, movies and broadway shows. The host was a comedic Ryan Seacrest-type with a touch of Joel…

Review: KiwiCo Crate

Do you remember playing outside for hours with nothing more than a stick when you were a kid? As a boy, I could make that stick a sword to battle pirates or a light saber to battle Darth Vader or a “shooter” (as my daughter says) to be a cowboy. But, it seems, part of…

Rules for My Daughters

Aaron Conrad posted a great compilation of quotes from Walker Lamond’s book “Rules for My Unborn Son.” As a father of two daughters, this list didn’t really speak to me, though it was full of great insight. So, I set out to build my own list of rules for my daughters. As I searched and…

Canfest – Reno Dads Night Out

“We have one goal: to give canned beer the spotlight it deserves.” Dads are people, too. And we sometimes need to go out and not be Dad for a few hours to recharge our father batteries. This will ultimately make us better, more patient fathers… in theory. So that’s what four of us Reno Dads┬ádid…

I Envy the Man with a Man Bun

“There’s many a man hath more hair than wit.” -Shakespeare The man bun has quite the bad rap. I say to each his own, and if you can pull it off better than the new Ken doll, then you go girl! Hold on. Don’t get upset at me just yet as I’m an equal opportunist…

Solution to Seasonal Stuffiness

“What if you hate the way he picks his nose? …..And eats it. All men do it.” – Kristoff from Frozen I don’t know about you, but I was anxious for the winter of 2016/2017 to end. Full disclosure: I don’t ski or snowboard, so the over abundance of snow in the Sierras was lost…

Kitties not Titties – Speech Matters

“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusions that is has taken place.” – George Bernard Shaw Communicating with a young child is a guessing game at best. “Did you poop? Are you hungry? Is that a new tooth? Are you not feeling well? Is it just gas? I don’t know, where is┬ámommy?” The…

Brew Date – A Play Date for Dads

“I think this would be a good time for a beer.” – Franklin Roosevelt upon signing the legislation making April 7th National Beer Day in 1933. I don’t know about the rest of you dads, but it seems the term “play date,” seems to be an exclusive club to which we’re not often invited. So…

March Snipness aka Vas Madness

“Sometimes a player’s greatest challenge is coming to grips with his role on the team.” -Scottie Pippen It takes two to tango, but if your experience to get pregnant with your partner was anything like mine, then you know it can take months upon months of “trying.” I hate the word trying and don’t get…
