2014 St. Patrick’s Day in Reno Tahoe

For some, it is a day to commemorate a man named Patrick who chased some snakes out of Ireland. For the rest of us, it is an excuse to party, and pay homage to the Irish and their many traditions. There are many locations in Reno Tahoe that will provide entertainment, Irish music, and of course, great Saint Patty’s libations. Here is a list of some of the venues that will keep you occupied from the ‘top of the morning’ until the wee hours of the night!

This is a fun filled day of unique eating as professional and amateur cooks compete for the most creative and unique dishes utilizing these unique delicacies.  More than 20 cooks compete in one of Northern Nevada’s most popular tasting contests serving up tasty testes all day, hoping for fame and glory as one of the best Rocky Mountain Oyster cooks in the West.

Reno Featured in Where to Retire Magazine

Reno, NV, has been selected a top retirement destination by Where to Retire, the only magazine in America geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions. Reno is one of eight cities profiled in a feature titled “Cut Taxes in These 8 Towns” in the March/April issue, available nationwide on Feb. 18, 2014.

Where to retireWhere to Retire Editor Annette Fuller said these eight cities, including Reno, appeal to retirees who have done their research and know that taxes are among the biggest expenses they face. “One of the best reasons to relocate in retirement is to leave hefty tax burdens behind. In addition to being easy on the pocketbook, Reno offers other amenities that appeal to retirees – beautiful vistas, outdoor adventures, and cultural and social opportunities that keep retirees engaged with the community,” Fuller said.

Each year, 700,000 Americans relocate to new towns to retire. Generally, relocating retirees are healthier, better educated and more affluent than those who choose to not relocate. They bring significant economic benefits to their new states and hometowns. Nationally, two dozen states and hundreds of towns seek to attract retirees as a source of economic development.

“Ring of Fire” Burns Bright in Eldorado Showroom

“Ring of Fire,” a musical tribute based on the music of American singer-songwriter, Johnny Cash, is now appearing in the Eldorado Showroom. The production is not a retelling of Cash’s turbulent life, but it does use more than 30 of his songs to celebrate the essence of an American experience – life, love, loss and everything in between.

Ring of Fire - Johnny CashThe talented cast of 10 includes three women and seven men who all sing, dance and play multiple instruments. The audience is treated to furious fiddle-playing, thumping percussion, soulful harmonica and more guitars than you can count.

“Ring of Fire” includes some of Cash’s most beloved songs such as Daddy Sang Bass, Ring of Fire, I Walk the Line, I’ve Been Everywhere, Boy Named Sue, The Man in Black, Folsom Prison Blues as well as Cash and June Carter Cash tunes such as Jackson, Far Side Banks of Jordan and I Still Miss Someone.

The real story of Johnny Cash is told in his music which is not presented chronologically in the show but instead categorically. Dividing the show into four parts–Boyhood Years, Opry and Fame, Dark Years, Redemption and Celebration–gives the audience the chance to see the influence that Cash’s life experiences played in the creation of his music.

Those looking to celebrate the Man in Black’s birthday can attend the Biggest Little Johnny Cash Birthday Bash on Friday, February 28 beginning at 6 p.m. in the showroom. There will be cake, a meet and greet with the Ring of Fire cast and prize giveaways including a limited edition boxed set of “The Legend” by Johnny Cash valued at $300, t-shirts and other Johnny Cash memorabilia as well as dinners, rooms and show tickets from the Eldorado.

Variety magazine said “Ring of Fire is Hot” and USA Today praised the show, noting, “Fire Burns Brighter, Truer and with More Imagination than Most.”

Performances of “Ring of Fire” run nightly except Mondays with showtimes Tuesday and Friday at 8 p.m., Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 7 and 9:30 p.m.  Tickets prices start at just $24.95 with dinner and show packages from only $38.95.

Blalock

emilieclark

“Sweet Corruptions” by Emilie Clark merges art with science in a way that may seem hard to imagine. Patrons will view an artistic portrayal of food waste, and will use their own preconceived notions with information the exhibit provides to come up with their own understanding of waste and society. People with an interest in ecology and the environment will gain from the interactive sculpture that includes audio and a dissecting microscope.

“Keeping Up Appearances” explores the intricate pattern of crochet on a massive scale, while simultaneously representing the female sphere. This site-specific exhibit may seem to intimidate the audience, as giant red doilies are displayed on the wall. The audience will get the feeling of a calm solace in the midst of tumult and unrest.

Sparks Heritage Museumhorses

“Honest Horses: A Portrait of the Mustang in the Great Basin” is a photography exhibit portraying the unseen idealistic lifestyle of the wild horses as they once lived in the Great Basin area. Paula Morin depicts these horses in relation to Native American life and the changing landscape of the Great Basin.

Reno Tahoe Travel Booms in 2013

Tourism officials announced that Reno Tahoe USA had more visitors in 2013 than any year since 2007!

In addition to strong sporting and convention business and new events – like the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, visitors are finding their passions in Reno Tahoe USA.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again… Passion naturally thrives in Reno Tahoe USA. Maybe you’ll find it on one of our magnificent mountains. Or at a special event that truly lives up to its name. Or at one of our world-class spas, showrooms, rivers, lakes, museums, or fairways. For some, the main reason for coming here is our famously epic skiing and snowboarding. For others, it may be the slightly eccentric camel ostrich and zebra races. But no matter what the reason – or the season – there are over a thousand ways to pursue your passions in northern Nevada’s high desert playground.
