In part one of our feature on Wild Garlic Pizza & Pub, we examined the importance of location in husband and wife team Dean Christopher and Elena Ramos' business model and how their “public house” inspired ethos drives their company's success, from the quality of their ingredients to the beer they pour. Here we share how their core values and central mission do not necessarily revolve around bottom line P&L forecasts or volume sales. It's something much more esoteric, yet essential to the human experience: called family.

Bryon Evans Films and Think Kindness.org team up to make moving documentary on African orphans in Kenya. I met Brian Williams in early 2009, shortly after the launch of Reno Tahoe Tonight. At the time, Williams was a popular martial arts instructor who was starting an organization that would help transform people's idea of global community. Since then the charismatic motivational speaker's has become one of America's most prolific young philanthropists and cheerleaders for the downtrodden and for the spark in all of us to do good by human kind.

Maui Mana Wheat

Need a little pint of summer? Have a Maui Mana Wheat. This Wheat beer is unfiltered, handcrafted American-style Wheat infused with Maui Gold Pineapple. Mana Wheat is a crisp and refreshing wheat ale that is lightly hopped to allow the fruity sweetness of the pineapple to come through. At SixFour we cut this beer with an IPA to give it a bit more hops and add sweetness the IPA.

“I'm addicted to adventure. I can't stand routine and living a life where I'm not challenged everyday. I didn't choose the easy route so I fell in love with this quote: 'For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.' -Robert Stevenson.

The Best Version of You 2016
Happy New Year! This year can truly mean anything to anybody, yet to me it means opportunity to walk through new doors; to become the best version of ourselves. Adopting this motto for the year has given me such motivation to really put all the goals and desires of the heart into complete action in order to see the manifestation of the seed for this year. Every New Year the biggest goals are physical due to the fact that everyone is feeling guilt from the over load of food and drinks consumed, or the lack of exercise due to stress, etc.

“Freedom is...the indispensable condition for the quest for human completion" – Paulo Freire
I am the only journalist in the building at an assembly on the campus of Rainshadow Charter High School in Reno's Midtown District. For the seniors who are on the verge of graduating in June of 2016, this is an especially important time, as they begin to put a bow on their second to last semester of high school.

Upscale Simplicity
In this installment of our series on my favorite restaurant in Truckee—Truckee Tavern and Grill—we fill you in on how owners Ryan Dierks and Chris St. Martin got started and what makes Chef Donovan's cuisine a cut above.
Chris St. Martin: We both got into the food and beverage industry pretty young. I think we were both about fifteen when we got our first job working in the kitchen. Both of us started off washing dishes. I realized I did not want to be washing dishes or in the kitchen very long. So I moved into busser position pretty fast. Ryan moved into a line cook and prep cook role. He worked at Ruth's Cris Steakhouse as a line cook in Vale. So that's where he cut his teeth and then moved throughout the business and got into the front of the house.

Be That. That thing you want to do. Do that. That way you want to feel. Feel that. That one you want to be. Be that.

Yes, you. I am most definitely talking to you. The one who thinks these rules don’t apply to you. The one who thinks these tricks only work for other people. The one who thinks life is for everyone but you. Or maybe not everyone. But definitely not you. Yes, you. Of course, you.

Reimagining Downtown
The story of Reno's revival is more than the by product of the economic uptick. Labeled the “Detroit of the West” some analysts projected that our region wouldn't recover from the recession until around 2021! It started with the vision and the imagination of risk-takers like Lance Gilman and his partners at Tahoe Reno Industrial Center; Bernie Carter in Midtown; the Egans downtown; the Raydon brothers of Marmot Properties in the Wells Addition, and Fernando Leal with his non-gaming hotel development concepts in the casino corridor and others.

Interstella

Photographer-Creative Director Celeste Talbott-Rivera

“Inspirationally derived from the particular cultural aesthetic known as Afrofuturism – combining the nature of art, beauty, and taste with the creation and appreciation of beauty. I really wanted to encompass the personal style that included appreciation for black beauty as embodied by the "Black is Beautiful" movement. Defying what is socially acceptable as beautiful ... as well as questioning my own perception of beauty.
