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: Key and Code Escape Rooms

Reno has been fortunate to have a number of new escape room businesses pop up the last few years, and we have a great new one at Legends in Sparks, called Key and Code. I had an opportunity to check out Key and Code thanks to a Yelp Reno event. If you aren’t familiar with…

4 Reasons Sky Tavern is Perfect for Dads

By guest author Eaton Dunkelberger Fellow dads, Sky Tavern is a great way to punch your dad/dude card this winter. For the price of a season of soccer (with cleats), you can give the gift of a new sport to your kiddos while doing some serious Dad Stuff. I joined Sky Tavern with my (then) 4 year…

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…

Helping Hungry Children

What if your child had to go hungry on a regular basis? For 1 in 4 children in Washoe County, this isn’t a theoretical question – it’s reality. We’re talking about local children, many of whom likely go to school alongside our kids. This situation can happen for many number of reasons, but the fact…

Fallon: Adventure, Beauty, and Community

Nevadans are intensely proud of our state and heritage. Our intense pride seems odd to newcomers and outsiders.  Nevadans love our state on a level that maybe only Texans can understand.  Try mispronouncing our state name for a quick demonstration. Being a Nevadan also means that you know that there is more to Nevada than…

Pumpkinpalooza 2017

Admit it, Halloween may be the best holiday. Maybe I feel that way because I have an insatiable sweet tooth for candy, or maybe it’s because I think we should be encouraged to wear Halloween costumes year round. Either way, I’m looking forward to bringing the family to Pumpkinpalooza this weekend (Oct 22) in Sparks, which…

Review: UFC Gym Reno is Open For Business

I’m going to skip the preaching about Nevada’s obesity problem and Nevada’s childhood obesity epidemic and cut straight to the point. The UFC Gym Reno is now open for business. That is right, a UFC Gym. In Reno. Think jiujitsu, boxing conditioning, kickboxing conditioning, traditional weights, functional fitness, punching bags, and exercise equipment in a…

Review: The Illusionists Present Adam Trent

Not much is more magical to young kids than, well, magic. Throw in a live magic show with awesome lighting and wonderful music and the kids are in absolute heaven. Our family caught The Illusionists Present Adam Trent at the Eldorado Reno and walked away with memories our family will cherish forever. This show is…

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 did…

Meet the New Circus Circus

If you’re a Reno native like I am, chances are pretty good you spent some time at Circus Circus as a kid. So, you may feel like you’re familiar with what’s inside. But, what you may not know is that Circus Circus is currently undergoing $50 million in renovations (along with Silver Legacy and Eldorado),…
