Shaving Cream Easter Eggs

Coloring and decorating eggs for Easter is a long-standing tradition for families. For many years, my family used the typical method of pouring vinegar into those store-bought color cups. You put the egg in the cup, and you sit and wait. If you want a really brilliant color, you go do something else for a…

Kids University Camps

At some point, when you have school-aged kids, you’ll be told that they’re on break. Yup, no school and you have to figure out what to do with them during the day. Taking a month off of work isn’t an option for most of us. Thank goodness for day camps! There are a number of…

Review: Kerak Shrine Circus

With all the options of family entertainment coming through Reno, I have forgotten the old fashioned fun of the Kerak Shrine Circus. Admittedly, it has been years since I have personally been to any kind of circus. The whole prospect of taking my young kids to a place full of clowns just seemed daunting in…

Review: Color Me Mine Reno

Parents rejoice! We have another great activity option in town – Color Me Mine in the Summit Reno (south Reno, next to Century Theaters). What is Color Me Mine? Well, let’s call it an art studio that specializes in ceramics (or what I came to find out are called bisques). As you walk in, you’ll…

Skiing and Snowboarding Safety Tips

Skiing or snowboarding is a fun activity that offers participants the enjoyment of being in the great outdoors, excellent exercise, a chance for families to bond and the potential for injury. Our friends at REMSA would like to offer some tips to keep snow enthusiasts safe on the slopes this winter. Tips for skiing and…

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…

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…

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…

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),…
