Be sure to swing by the newly revamped FHD this season…  Duffy’s Ale House sports the largest draft selection in northern Nevada, 250 Lounge will be spinning the tunes and mixing cocktails, Arroyo Mexican Grill spices things up with their out-of-the-park grub, and the Heineken Stage and Tuaca Center Bar will be rocking the best bands in Reno under the open air patio canopy.

Ballpark Food w/ a Taunting Twist

Let’s start with the staple…a ballpark hot dog. Ace’s Stadium’s dog is not just any ordinary hot dog, it’s a Carson City Sausage Factory hot dog, made by a multi-generational sausage making family. It’s local, it’s the real deal. Pair it with one of the new WOW items like the full size souvenir helmet nachos, chocolate chip cookie cup ice cream sundae, or a fried chicken po’ boy that you’ll need a stack of napkins to finish.

NEW Beer Garden

There is more to right field than just an amazing view of the park and city this year…  it’s where you’ll find the brand new Craft Beer Garden. Over a dozen craft brews will be on tap from the likes of Blue Moon, Crispin, New Belgium, Sam Adams, Lagunitas, and Northern Nevada’s own Great Basin.

RENO ACES ‘DISCOVER’ NORTHERN NEVADA’S NEWEST ADDITION

news_acesday_tshirtacesGilligan’s Island’s May Ann is greeting Aces fans this Sunday, August 7, at the Aces Stadium for Discovery Day.

“Why?” You may ask?

Only one month away from its grand opening, The Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum (The Discovery) is taking over the Reno Aces ballpark with a Gilligan’s Island theme in honor of Terry Lee Wells Foundation chairman, Dawn Wells. Wells, aka Mary Ann Summers on the popular 1960s television comedy “Gilligan’s Island,” will be outside the main entrance of the ballpark to greet fans, take pictures and sign autographs beginning at 5pm.

Don’t arrive late because Wells is teaming up with Aces mascot, Archie, to perform a special on-field skit and throw the first pitch. Additionally, themed contests will offer entertainment for parents and children alike with activities including a hula hoop contest, swim fin race and a variety of Gilligan’s Island trivia competitions.

Discovery ticket packages, which are available for general admission and outfield reserved seating, include a commemorative T-shirt and a portion of the proceeds benefit The Discovery. Packages can be purchased by visiting renoaces.com or by calling the box office at (775) 334-3700 and mentioning special offer code, “discovery.”

ABOUT THE DISCOVERY

The Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum will inspire curiosity, creativity and the joy of lifelong learning for all children and families of northern Nevada. Upon opening, the museum will provide opportunities to discover science, art and local history through open-ended, interactive and fun exhibits and hands-on educational programs. Explore a cave, build a house, race across Nevada, and climb into the clouds – these are just some of the many adventures offered at The Discovery.

At nearly 70,000 square-feet, The Discovery is located in the former Reno City Hall building and will serve children from birth to 12 years old. Each of the museum’s eight galleries contains numerous hands-on learning exhibits focused on the northern Nevada region, nature, science, art and society.  Still underway is a membership campaign that will conclude upon the Discovery’s grand opening on Saturday, Sept. 10. For the latest information on The Discovery, to purchase memberships, or to sign up as a volunteer, visit www.nvdm.org or call (775) 786-1000.
