Reno Mimosa Day Crawl
Reno has hosted several wine walks and beer crawls over the years, but this is the year we move on to champagne. That’s right, 2022 is the first year that Reno is hosting a Mimosa Crawl—as popularly requested by the locals. Just like previous crawls, your ticket in is the purchase of a reusable cup which can be purchased online here, or in person at Junkee Clothing Exchange. The crawl begins at noon on April 9th starting at The Eddy. All cups purchased online will be held at The Eddy and can be picked up on the day of the event.
A total of 10 restaurants and bars will be participating in the crawl including 5 Star Saloon, The Eddy, The Arch, Hookava, Masque, The Office, Playfield 76, Silver Peak (On the River), The Stick, and Virginia Street Brewhouse.
Biggest Little Easter Egg Hunt
Reno @ Rancho San Rafael
This Reno April event is for the kids, but don’t worry, adults are welcome too! Held at the Reno Idlewild Park on April 9th will be a community Easter egg hunt that is free for children under the age of 12 to join. This event is held by the Washoe CASA Foundation along with 20 other local child advocacy organizations as part of National Child Abuse Protection Month. The Easter egg hunt will start at 10 AM on April 9th at Rancho San Rafael Park. For children with sensory sensitivities, a separate, quieter egg hunt will happen at the same location just an hour earlier at 9 AM. We look forward to seeing you there!
