Weekend Warrior (Oct 10-13)

HAUNTOBER
ALL OF OCTOBER
VIRGINIA CITY, NEVADA

Ghostly experiences await your visit at our beloved old mining and saloon town.  Historic Virginia City’s Hauntober offers spooky outings like ghost tours and a walk at dusk in the cemetery Halloween night.  Not-so-spooky activities for kiddos include a day out with Thomas the Tank Engine and a V&T Railroad Pumpkin Patch Train Ride.  For a complete list of details and events happening throughout the month, hop online at VisitVirginiaCity.com.

STEVE SIMEONE
THURSDAY-SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10-12
PIONEER UNDERGROUND & LEX NIGHTCLUB

Once in a while, a comedian comes along who truly captures my attention.  Steve Simeone did just that in his standup bit about “Brother Wars.”  Though let me warn you, that even though Simeone’s comedy is 100% clean, the “This Is Not Happening” intro video in the Brother Wars clip is NOT.  So fast forward through that part if you just want good, solid, compelling, storytelling comedy.  Choose from 4 shows happening Thurs-Sat, and see him live at Pioneer Underground or LEX Nightclub.  Visit RenoTahoeComedy.com for more info and ticket sales.

HARVEY
THURSDAYS – SUNDAY, THROUGH OCTOBER 20 (Times vary by day)

RENO LITTLE THEATRE

In 1944, American playwright Mary Chase conceived the genius comedy, Harvey.  This Pulitzer Prize-winning play tells the story of Elwood P. Dowd, a friendly man with a very strange best friend, a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch invisible rabbit named Harvey. Elwood’s sister tries to have him committed, but Elwood and Harvey have other plans.  Don’t miss this Midtown production that opened last weekend and runs through October 20.  Visit RenoLittleTheater.org for more info.

LAKE TAHOE MARATHON+
FRIDAY-SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11-13

LAKE TAHOE, CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA

Put on your fastest running shoes and take part in one of the post beautiful spots on the planet.  The Lake Tahoe Marathon+ takes place over 3 days, and offers a variety of lengths and levels for all who love to get their blood pumping. Choose from the 5K, 10k, 16.4-miler or the 72-mile Ultra race.  4-person relay marathons and ultras offer two more options, as well as numerous 1/2 marathons sprinkled around Lake Tahoe.

ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11 ( 8 pm)
SILVER LEGACY – GRAND EXPOSITION HALL

Try saying this guy’s name quickly three times… or after a couple glasses of wine!  83 years old, and still going strong after 63 years of entertaining, British pop star Engelbert Humperdinck headlines at The Eldorado Great Italian Festival Friday night in the Grande Exposition Hall.  His unforgettable voice can be heard in fan-favorites “Release Me,” “Spanish Eyes” and “Am I That Easy to Forget.” Visit SilverLegacyReno.com to learn more about Humperdinck and purchase tickets to his show.

WILLIE NELSON & FAMILY

GODSMACK
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11 (9 pm)
GRAND SIERRA RESORT

Fuse the sounds of Alice in Chains and Metallic and what do you get?  Godsmack!  The Boston-based hard rock band that rose to prominence during the late 90’s post-grunge/nu-metal wave, treats Reno to a show filled with the “mystical imagery and percussive tribal rhythms” of their early days, and the more classic rock and heavy metal touches of their most recent years. Learn more about Godsmack and purchase your tickets to see them live at GrandSierraResort.com.

THE ELDORADO GREAT ITALIAN FESTIVAL
SATURDAY & SUNDAY, OCTOBER 12 & 13
THE ROW (VIRGINIA STREET, DOWNTOWN RENO)

“Mangia Mangia!!” … Translation: “Eat! “Eat!”  That’s what my Italian neighbors would exuberantly say every time we kids stepped into their home.  With the door always “open” to us, the aroma of minestrone soup, ravioli’s from DaVinci’s deli, and a spread of salami, mortadella and fresh, crusty bread from Genova’s bakery welcomed us.  This weekend, enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of Italy right here in Reno at The Eldorado Great Italian Festival.  Family recipes, street vendors, live music…. It’s all part of the fun!  Visit EldoradoReno.com for all the details of this awesome event that is a beautiful 38-year community tradition.

PASQUALE ESPOSITO
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12 (8 pm) 

NUGGET EVENT CENTER

Italy-native Pasquale Esposito now resides in San Jose and Naples, but spreads the spirit of Italy around the world through his gorgeous tenor voice.  Esposito made the move to America about 20 years ago, and begin a successful music career that produced eight studio albums.  Get a feel for what to expect this Saturday night at the Nugget Event Center in “Musica Tu.”  It will take you straight to Naples!  Learn more about Pasquale Esposito and purchase tickets to his concert at NuggetCasinoResort.com.

RENO ZOMBIE PROM
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12 (8 pm-2 pm)

CARGO CONCERT HALL – WHITNEY PEAK HOTEL

Get all dolled up and join the walking dead this Saturday night at Reno Zombie Prom.  It’ll be “a killer good time” dancing amongst corpses to the music of Decoy, commemorating the event with prom photos, winning prizes in the costume contests, and enjoying a kick ass drink special… $10 drink-until-the-kegs-run dry Lagunitas beer.  After a night of drinking like that, you just may wish you were dead the next morning.  Zombie makeover packages are available if you need help in the fabrication department!  Drink responsibly, and DON’T get behind the wheel if you do!  Visit RenoZombieProm for all the gory details.
