DOWNTOWN RENO WINE WALK
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16 (2-5 pm)

RENO RIVERWALK DISTRICT – DOWNTOWN RENO

Talk the talk and walk the walk at the Downtown Reno Wine Walk!  It’s the popular monthly “wine crawl,” if you will, where participants check in at one of 9 Riverwalk Merchant locations and shop downtown businesses while sipping tasters of vino.  Wine walkers will present an ID proving they of legal age to drink (driver’s license), whip out a Jackson (20 bucks), grab a map (ticket), a wristband, a wine glass and a partridge in a pear tree, and hit the town. Visit at least 5 venues, fill out the back of the map, return to your host location, and enter that bad boy into a raffle drawing.  It’s loads of fun, so get out on this beautiful fall Saturday and enjoy!  Visit RenoRiverWalk.org for more details and a list of venues.

ATREYU & WHITECHAPEL
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16 (6-11 pm)
WHITNEY PEAK HOTEL – CARGO CONCERT HALL

Grab your earplugs and head downtown to Cargo Concert Hall for some brutal, head-banger, metal-core and death-metal music.  The volume with be turned up, way up, when Atreyu and Whitechapel take the stage with hard-hitting beats, scorching-hot guitars and insanely powerful vocals. Listen to “Becoming a Bull” by Atreyu and marvel at how the lead singer of Whitechapel even has a voice left after a single song like “The Saw Is The Law.” Holy mackerel! I’m not even joking about bringing the ear protection.  Tickets to this concert may be purchased in the lobby at Whitney Peak Hotel or online at EventBrite.com.
