A re-designed stage, surrounded by the dance floor, is the center-focus in the new BuBinga, with elite theatrical lighting, including fifteen moving lights and one colossal multi-movement light that pulses color throughout the room.  This sleek new hotspot features plush surroundings with all new faux black crocodile and snake leather seating modules with lighted table tops that omit rhythmic bands of color across the venue.

Each bar is back lit with geometrical hues of blue color and a serpentine-shaped bar die wall that projects soft color waves. 

With an open design throughout, the new BuBinga Lounge allows guests to see the entire venue from almost every point in the room.  Entertainment includes live DJ performances and bands every Friday and Saturday night beginning at 9 p.m. and Wednesdays starting April 16.  For more information and entertainment schedules call 775-786-5700 or visit the Eldorado online at www.eldoradoreno.com.

Contest: Make your own ’snow dance’ video

(Squaw Valley, Calif.) – In an effort to jump start the winter spirit around Reno-Tahoe, Tahoe TV has launched the “Show Us Your Snow Dance” video contest, inviting viewers to submit video of their best snow dance for a chance to win up to $500 in prizes.

“We felt this would be a fun way to pump some energy into the preseason and also encourage support of local businesses,” said Eric Brandt, president of Tahoe TV. “We’re hoping to see some great videos and get the mojo workin’ for winter.”

Videos may be submitted online at www.tahoetv.com through Dec. 18. Each video will be rated online by viewers and also judged by a panel. On Dec. 22, the top-rated video will be awarded $500 in certificates to local businesses and aired on Tahoe TV’s daily local information program, Get Out! Tahoe around the lake and in Reno and Carson City.

Snow Dance videos can be elaborate or simple, and involve individual or multiple snow dancers. Participants are encouraged to be creative and show energy and appeal to the snow gods. Each video must be less than 90 seconds and under 50mb to be uploaded. For information, visit www.tahoetv.com.

Check out this snow dance video Alpine Meadows put together.
