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.

Baseball fans getting revved up for the Reno Aces

The crack of the bat, a hotdog and a cool beer under the warm sun in Reno-Tahoe … the first season for the Reno Aces is finally under way with a new ballpark on the banks of the Truckee River in downtown Reno.

Triple A baseball’s newest team will take to the field tonight with a home opener that promises to be a spectacle for both locals and visitors. And it’s a long time coming. Residents, investors and fans of the sport have long pursued the dream of building a world-class baseball stadium in the Reno-Sparks region, to take advantage of the region’s growing population, great weather and tourism base. The stadium, located in the heart of downtown Reno’s redevelopment district, offers another reason to head downtown – the Aces will offer 73 home games, playing in the exciting Pacific Coast League.

The stadium is just another in a long line of improvements to the visitor experience in Reno. The city’s “Renaissance” has included construction of a riverwalk district complete with boutiques, pubs, coffee shops, restaurants, a movie complex and public areas, including an outdoor amphitheater. Within the last couple years, train tracks through downtown Reno were rerouted through a trench to create a more pedestrian-friendly atmosphere, while part of the trench was covered, allowing for a new public space, a boon for the many special events held throughout the spring, summer and fall months.

Last fall saw the opening of the West Street Market, a rehabilitated commercial area that now houses a wine bar, a teahouse, coffee shops and stores. It also plays host to farmers and craft markets, as well as live performances.

Several city-style condominium projects in downtown have also enlivened the culture of the area, creating a new market for everything for everything from the arts to commerce. Downtown hotel-casinos have also undergone first-class remodels.

If you haven’t planned to attend a Reno Aces game yet, log on and get your tickets. Baseball is finally here and you’re going to love it.
