Check out this month’s 10 most “buzz-worthy” things to see and do in Reno/Sparks/North Lake Tahoe, according to our multi-generational, “What-To-Do Crew”:
Renew, Rejuvenate, Restore at Spa Toscana
This luxurious spa in one of Reno’s premier resorts is the perfect place to chill out, offering ELEVEN different spa treatments alone to guests and visitors alike. It’s worth a visit just to experience their unique, "Tuning Forks Therapy- Sound and Massage". Good vibrations, for sure…
"Nothing To It"? Hardly...
Locals love to sneak a lunch at this slightly hidden- but very upscale- cooking school and restaurant. Dine in the main kitchen area or deli… and then return later to learn how to prepare Peking Duck, Chocolate Truffles or whatever else the professional and visiting staff is teaching that day. Fun!
Peg’s Eggs: You will like them here or there
Egg-cellent service and home-style cuisine has driven Peg’s Glorified Ham n Eggs to expand to four bustling locations in the Reno-Sparks area, with the original Peg’s in downtown Reno. The eggs benedict and crispy golden hash browns are always cooked to perfection.
6300 Mae Anne Ave #1 Reno, NV 89523
720 S Meadows Pkwy Reno, NV 89521
A Corky Bottle Shop
Cork bars and brick walls ornament Craft Wine & Beer, a trendy Midtown bottle shop and hangout spot with bottled wine, beer, spirits, soda and even honey. The friendly staff and atmosphere invites you to pop open a bottle to enjoy at the bar, and take another to-go.
History You’ll Want to SOAK In
A historic house in downtown Reno is home to some of Reno’s most lavish spa mani/pedi treatments. Say "yes" to SOAK’s specialty cocktails, like the "Pink Drink." They’re refreshingly delightful.
Last Tracks Paired With Good Wining
Panoramic views of Lake Tahoe, sunset, fine wines, craft brews, gourmet appetizers, and freshly groom tracks. It’s the best last run of the day you’ll have - only at north shore’s Diamond Peak Ski Resort, every Saturday!
Small Venue. Big Talent.
The Alley is the perfect concert house for punk rock with top notch bands and DJs performing every weekend. After the show, grab a bite in Sparks’ Victorian Square just around the corner!
Pick a Side
One side is clothing, one side is antiques, both sides of Junkee Clothing Exchange are vintage and unique! Even if you’re not looking to buy, the store displays are a site worth seeing.
Historic Hotel turned Metropolitan Eatery
Recently remodeled into a contemporary dining spot, the River Room is frequented for its rich music, small plates, decadent deserts, and expansive views of the downtown Reno Riverwalk.
Lake Tahoe’s Coffee for a Cause
IV Coffee Lab goes above and beyond a local hipster coffee shop, donating proceeds to charity one gluten-free treat at a time. For those with a sweet tooth, try not to drool when the barista prepares their Salted Mocha with pink Himalayan salt, topped with freshly shaved baker's dark chocolate.
