Review: Escape Room at the Puzzle Room Reno – with Kids!

Escape Room Addict Hi. My name is David and I am an escape room addict. I cannot get enough of escape and puzzle rooms. My “team”, consisting of my wife and another married couple close to us, take escape rooms seriously. We have even gone to extremes, such as not drinking a lot beforehand (gasp!),…

Basin and Range Cellars

Some of you who follow our coverage may have noticed from social media posts that a few of us recently visited Basin and Range Cellars, a local winery producing estate wine. “Estate” is a term used by vintners (winemakers) and brewers (beer makers) to denote that the ingredients they use are grown entirely on site….

NEW SHOW: The Unbelievables Christmas Spectacular

The air is cold and crisp in Reno again. As I drive through my neighborhood on the way home each night, I spot another house that is newly festooned with brightly colored lights and lawn ornaments. No denying it – it’s Christmastime! If you’re ready to really jumpstart your Christmas spirit, I highly recommend getting…

A Day Out with Thomas: Big Adventure Tour 2018

My son Jameson is now 13-months old, and I’ve learned this is the exact age when a young boy develops a full-blown love affair with vehicles: cars, trucks, planes, and trains. Every large transportation vehicle he sees is currently a “truck” (his favorite word), and “trucks” of every kind litter my living room: an ATV,…

The Family that Runs Together, has Fun Together

I love the opportunity to take part in wholesome family activities that don’t involve a screen. That’s why, even though I don’t consider myself a runner, I jump at the chance to do “fun runs.” Many of them come in the form of a 5k, which is just over 3 miles. I hesitated, for a…

Griffith Canyon Petroglyphs

As hikers go, I am admittedly not an expert. Granted, I’m no rookie either, but if you’re an experienced hiker and you’re reading this review expecting terminology like “base weight,” “alpine zone,” or “peak bagging,” I guarantee you will be disappointed. Or maybe you won’t be because I just used those terms right there? The…

NEW: Party Rooms at Circus Circus

If you read my previous article about the new Circus Circus, you know that they’ve recently completed a string of renovations that brought a slew of great new family-friendly additions. One of its newest additions are the two party rooms. Now, as appealing as it is to invite a couple dozen sugar-crazed kids to destroy…

Review: Create – Bottle Cap Opener

Some dads don’t feel comfortable being “crafty.” It conjures up images of puffy paint, construction paper, glitter, and yarn. But, creation and crafting don’t have to be outside of the comfort zone. In fact, my fellow Reno Dads founder (David) and I jumped at the opportunity to check out Create and build a beer bottle cap…
