Vintage Values

The golden rules to scoring epoch victories! By Emily Skyle. I’m that girl, you know, the one that gets downright giddy when they get an amazing deal on clothes. If I get a compliment on my favorite maxi dress, my auto-response is “Thanks! I got it for $11!” and then I bask in the memory of my glorious shopping victory. Yet, with all my years of shopping sales, I had never really ventured into the world of new-to-me clothing. To me, “used” clothing meant ill-fitted, hand-me-down mom jeans that smelled like our weird neighbor, Hazel. That all changed 15 years ago, when my friend Bree taught me the golden rules of shopping vintage and it resulted in some pristine Jimmy Choo heels for $89! (Cue the angels singing!)

BBQ – Up In Smoke

A savory taste of Southern barbecue in the Sierra. By Rae Matthews, Elevation Eats. Southern barbecue has a long and proud tradition. There are several styles of Southern barbecue, each named for their region of origin, that garner as much loyalty and rivalry as professional baseball teams. You may want to avoid putting a Carolina sauce on a brisket in Texas, for example. But thankfully, food traditions migrate. Here in the Sierra, you can sample all the Southern flavors right at your fingertips (or, should we say on your fingertips?).

Go Parking

Explore California and Nevada’s state parks this summer. By Annie Flanzraich. When summer comes to the Reno/Tahoe area, my favorite activities happen outside. Hiking, camping, swimming, exploring, adventuring and lounging are best experienced with sunshine, fresh air, friends and a hefty dose of SPF. State parks can be an epicenter for all of the above, and luckily more than 20 parks are a 45-minute drive or less from Reno. Here are my favorite seven to visit.

Local Vibes

Local Vibes – Living a life without limits. By Nicole Marsel. Much like the character of Merida from the movie “Brave,” Teal Stetson-Lee is courageous, daring, helps others conquer their fears and has a great head of hair. Those are very rare qualities to come across in one single person these days. She’s also a complete badass when it comes to enduro mountain bike racing and cyclocross racing. When I moved to Tahoe, mountain biking was only natural to pick up. While you visit, perhaps you could follow Teal’s lead and push yourself to the next level in America’s all-season playground!

Art In The Great Outdoors (Jeramie Lu)

Art In The Great Outdoors

Art in the great outdoors – Explore Northern Nevada’s outdoor art walks, murals and sculptures this spring. By Annie Flanzraich. When the weather turns warm in Northern Nevada, all I want to do is spend as much time as possible outdoors while enjoying the fresh-smelling air and radiant sun. Now, there are many ways to do this — hiking, spending time at the dog park with my reluctant schnauzer, brunching on patios or simply sipping a cup of coffee on an Adirondack chair. But, I think the best way to experience the glory of temperate weather is by pairing it with art. Luckily, there’s a host of ways to pair the two. Here are some of my favorites.
