Reno Blog

Reno isn't called the Biggest Little City for nothing. While it's true that you can get to the airport in less than a half-hour from just about any place in town, it's also true that there is more going on here than you can imagine, let alone keep track of.  So in order to stay up on all of the latest events and activities, don't miss our timely and informative Reno blog. On a weekly basis, a Truckee Meadows insider will give you the background information on all your favorite goings-on and clue you in to new opportunities to get out and about. Forget about the Reno of yesteryear, when gambling was the main focus of the area and people came here in order to get a divorce. These days, participation opportunities abound whether you are a footloose and fancy-free Millennial, a parent trying to find something to catch the interest of kids or teens or someone just coming into the prime of your life. In fact, as you become a steady reader of the blog, you'll be amazed at how diversified the community has become over the past years, with something to offer all ages and all interests whether you've lived here forever or are visiting for the first time.

Fishin' the Truckee

By Keith Rugg | Tuesday, June 30, 2020
I’m going to ‘fess up, right here and right now. Although I lived most of my adult life here – in fact, both my daughters were born in the Silver State – I didn’t grow up in Nevada. And although I was raised in the West, I was still taught in school (7th grade geography with Mr. Gornick, for those of you keeping score... Read More

Double Down on a Double Shot Espresso

By Keith Rugg | Monday, June 22, 2020
With things loosening up a bit, I find that one of the things I’ve been missing the most over the past few months is a fancy-schmancy espresso drink. There’s nothing wrong with a plain old coffee, but a drink that is hand-crafted by someone who really knows what they’re doing with the espresso machine and the steamed... Read More

Go Fly a Kite!

By Keith Rugg | Tuesday, March 10, 2020
Last week I made a reference to the type of weather that is typical for the month of March. "In like a lion, out like a lamb," which usually means that we can expect some strong breezes as the season officially changes over from winter to spring. Or so they say. I suspect it's true of other neighborhoods as well, but... Read More
