It's Healthy, Honey 

Learn about bees, apiaries, and mead in our latest issue. 

Written by Erin Meyering


Bees, bees, bees. You may be afraid of them or you may find them fascinating. Either way, they're pretty miraculous. According to, "In order to produce 1 pound of honey, 2 million flowers must be visited. A hive of bees must fly 55,000 miles to produce a pound of honey. One bee colony can produce 60 to 100 pounds of honey per year. An average worker bee makes only about 1/12 teaspoon of honey in its lifetime." 

In our Fall issue, we choose to tip our hat to the honey bee (and many other creepy crawlies). Read the issue, and you'll uncover facts about the glorious honey bee, have the tools to make your own honey wine, and learn about locals who keep bees... thousands and thousands of them. Ponder the future of bees and how it affects our local agriculture by reading our Q & A with Nevada's state entomologist Jeff Knight

New Choices

Reno Supper Club brings distinct cuisines to West Street Market.

Written by Erin Meyering


Many Reno residents were sad to see Bowl restaurant close this past June. Not only did Bowl provide a place for people to enjoy plenty of local, organic, and natural food, but it was also a community meeting place to gather and chat. Although folks will miss its friendly atmosphere and creative cuisine, Bowl's closing has paved the way for an exciting, new concept to move in.

In late August, the Reno Supper Club nested in Bowl's old space at West Street Market. Thali is the first of many pop-ups and food/drink events Reno Super Club will host. Thali means round platter and simply refers to a meal made up of a selection of various dishes. 

At Thali, you'll enjoy a variety of traditional Northern Indian dishes such as freshly-made roti (bread), collard greens, aromatic rice, chickpeas with tomato, and more. Each meal is pre-fixe, entirely vegetarian, and can easily be converted into a vegan or gluten-free meal. Thali is now open 6 – 9 p.m. Sat. – Mon.

For details, stay tuned for our Winter Edible Updates column, publishing in Novemeber.

Three cheers to CANFEST

Reno is home to world's largest international canned beer event

Written by Erin Meyering


In its eighth year, CANFEST, will once again offer Reno patrons a selection of more than 100 international canned beers to sample Saturday, Aug. 27 at the Peppermill Resort Hotel. Most beers that will be poured at CANFEST also are available locally. New this year, a selection of canned wine will be served. Attendees can vote for their favorite beers (or wines) by putting tokens in designated buckets for each brewer. Additionally, festival-goers can dance the night away at the silent disco, play canned beer pong, and enjoy live music from local band Bazooka Zoo. 

“CANFEST is one of the best nights of the year for craft beer lovers from Reno and surrounding areas,” said Constance Aguilar, co-producer of CANFEST. “It’s a blast of a party—and a chance to squash any negative stigma surrounding canned beer. Reno locals really appreciate our local craft beer selections, and we’re passionate about spreading this appreciation by bringing world-class canned brews to Northern Nevada.”

Summer Sippin'

Cool down with this Cantaloupe Ginger Cocktail 

Written by Erin Meyering


Who doesn't love an ice-cold cocktail in the summer? We found a recipe that incorporates summer's fresh cantaloupe bounty, ginger, and vodka. Throw the concoction over ice and you're set for a community barbeque or a blissful night in. 

Procuring your ingredients locally helps reduce your carbon footprint AND allows you to get fresher fruit. The Fallon Cantaloupe Festival & Country Fair is coming up Sept. 2 – 5 at the Churchill County Fairgrounds. That's a great place to stock up on local hearts of gold melon.

Strawberry Bliss

Incorporate sweet summer fruit into your seasonal menu

Written by Erin Meyering


It’s June, which probably means you’re gearing up for warmer days, summer barbecues, and fresh-squeezed lemonade. Summer also brings you a bounty of seasonal fruit, including strawberries. And you’re in luck because June is the perfect month to pick up a basket full (they’re perfectly ripe and in abundance). 

Sure, strawberries are plenty delicious on their own but how impressive is it to make a special drink, ice cream, or another culinary treasure using only fresh ingredients? Strawberries pair well in a drink muddled with lime or even in a smoothie blended with banana and a splash of almond milk.

Eat well. Live well. 

Wanderlust Squaw Valley is not just for yogis, but also for health food fanatics.

Written by Erin Meyering
Photos by Tory Putman for Wanderlust Festival


noun | wan • der • lust
a strong desire to travel; a yoga and wellness festival in Olympic Valley (among several other cities nationwide) bringing together like minds for yoga practice, community connection, and of course — food. 

The festival itself is a surreal experience. A time lapse of the event would reveal a slurry of people wearing yoga pants, munching granola bars, and raising their reusable water bottles (and wine later in the evening) to good heath, sustainability, and kindness. Having attended the last two years, I can say with confidence that every bit of yoga and bite of vegetarian street food (did I mention the food trucks?) is worth it. The festival, which takes place once a year in Olympic Valley, is a place for you to walk in the sunshine, visit various shops and booths, participate in an extraordinary variety of yoga classes, and indulge in fresh, healthy cuisine.

Mark your calendars July 14 – 17 for this year's Wanderlust festival. The food and drink options are expanded yearly and this year, they're better than ever. In July, you'll be able to participate in evening wine walks, farm to table dinners, and attend several talks on the future of food as it relates to wellness.

Set in the midst of The Lost Sierra's towering pines, and an expansive 18-hole championship golf course, Nakoma Resort's offerings include an abundance of amenities and outdoor activities. In tandem with its new lodge, which opened in August 2015, Nakoma boasts its distinct clubhouse, the only one designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Although the plans were originally for another site, the clubhouse was brought to life in 2001 when the golf club property opened. The clubhouse, home to the Wigwam restaurant, serves a wide variety of cuisine year-round and is just one of the perks of this resort's selling points.
