KIRA SOLTANOVICH
THURSDAY-SUNDAY, JANUARY 30-FEBRUARY 1
PIONEER UNDERGROUND & LEX NIGHTCLUB

 

One of the funniest comedians to grace the stage of Pioneer Underground and LEX Nightclub will do just that this weekend!  Kira Solanovich makes her way from LA where she has been hitting it hard on the stand-up stage, late-night TV favorites, Last Comic Standing and more.  She is best known for her work on the prank-oriented reality show Girls Behaving Badly which aired on the Oxygen Network for four seasons. She also brought down the house with her self-produced, “Mother of All Comedy Specials,” You Did This To Me, while 7 months pregnant.  Kira is a must see!  So check out “Here Comes Trouble Part I” and buy tickets to one of her five performances at RenoTahoeComady.com.

SUPERBOWL LIV PARTIES
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2
MULTIPLE VENUES

 

This is it!  It’s down to The San Francisco 49ers and somebody else.  Oh…. that’s right.  It’s the Kansas City Chiefs.  Undoubtedly America’s biggest television viewing event, Superbowl brings friends and family together for cheers, jeers, sneers, eating, drinking, and just good old fashioned hanging out.  Action begins at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL at 6:30 pm ET and brings the highest level of competition, exciting commentary and entertaining commercials for all to enjoy.  If you’re not taking in the Superbowl experience at a private party or home, you may want to watch at one of Reno-Sparks’ many fun venues.  Visit NewToReno.com for some great Superbowl event ideas!

 

HANDMADE JOURNAL & FUSED GLASS JEWELRY MAKING WORKSHOPS
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2  (JOURNAL 9 am-4 pm & JEWELRY 12-3 pm)
NEVADA MUSEUM OF ART

 

Not into football?  What to get crafty and creative instead?  The Nevada Museum of Art offers two fun workshops this Sunday you may want to join!  In the all-day, Handmade Journal Workshop, you’ll combine beautiful papers with linen, twine, lace and more to make a memorable softcover keepsake or gift.  No bookbinding experience is required.  The other workshop offered on Sunday invites us to create Fused Glass Pendants and/or Earrings.  Students will learn to cut flat glass, use frits, stringers, dichroic sparkly glass, and even pebbles to craft beautiful, hand-made jewelry.  Learn more about these classes and other events happening this weekend at NevadaArt.org.

 

GRAB YOUR BESTIES AND GO BOWLING!
ANYDAY
MULTIPLE BLOWING VENUES

 

Calling all wanna-be King-Pins!  Imagine yourself, strolling into one of Reno-Sparks’ many Bowling Centers. You hear that old familiar sound… the ball hitting the wood, the long roll down the dimly lit lane, and the distinct crash and clatter of the pins.  Hopefully the effort results in a complete demolition of the set up and the exclamation of an exuberant “STRIKE!” accompanied by a fist pump.  Enjoy a game or two with your friends/family, and discover your venue of choice at Yelp.com.

We’re expecting amazing, spring-like weather this weekend!  If you’re itching to get outside for some fresh air and a walk, consider checking out all of the cool art murals that are decorating Midtown Reno.  Mark your calendar if you would like to take a docent-led tour of the Midtown Mural Walk on the second Saturday of every month.  But if you’re planning to go this weekend at your own pace, the self-guided tour can be followed at ArtSpotReno.org.

 

Believe it or not, summer is just around the corner.  The bathing suit racks lining Target’s ladies’ department are my indicator that it is!  So it’s never too late to start planning your events that are quickly approaching.  Historically, Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena has brought some of the hottest names in entertainment for us to enjoy every year. Though the entire schedule of concerts is not released, a few are on the calendar.  Visit Caesars.com for ticket sales that are on sale soon, and to see the following stars headed to Lake Tahoe!
