Leap Year Libations, Lift Tickets and Luxuries

Understanding a holiday centered on inserting an extra day into the calendar year, and then taking it out for 3 years, but not on years divisible by 100, unless they’re evenly divisible by 400, all so the vernal equinox (aka full moon) remains on or close to March 21, is quite the quizzical concept. But now that you have the gist, plus information that can only be used in leap year pick-up lines, let’s move forward with how Reno Tahoe celebrates most holidays – parties and discounts!

SUPERHEROES AND VILLANS WILL SAVE THE WORLD, ONE DRINK AT A TIME

The only thing Superheroes, Super-zeros and Villains can agree on: a giant pub crawl. On July 16, identities will be masked, evil will pause and good times will prevail.

We know you have to get to making your unarguably awesome costumes, so we’ll keep the details short:

$2 and $3 drink specials

17 participating bars

Cash and other prizes! (How often are you paid to drink with your friends?)

Cost: $5 gets you a cup and a map

Upgraded VIP Cup: Only $40 buys you admission and one $5 drink at each of the 17 stops. FYI: that’s $85 worth of booze!

Be Safe, don’t drive. The Silver Legacy Resort Casino has discounted hotel rooms exclusively for Crawlers. Enter code SUPER11.

Start time: 8pm

End time: You make the call. You’re in Reno.

Start Location: Biggest Little City Club at 188 California Avenue

The Superhero Crawl’s mission is to save the World, one drink at a time. So, just in case you needed one more reason to party, a portion of the proceeds is donated to support the Washoe County School District.

Check out the costumes from last year and let your imagination decide your pseudo-character for the night.
