We started this group because we love to find, share, appreciate and enjoy, small, local, sustainable, unique and uncommon eateries and events across the Reno-Tahoe-Carson area. Sustainability is most important to us, hence the reason to support local business' and keep it non-chain. At times the places will be the classic 'hole-in-the-wall' joint and other times they will be the 'hole-in-my-wallet' variety. Either way we'd like to invite you to come with.

No course is off-limits; breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner or dessert and happenings involving wine and beer will be incorporated, but our focus is on food! Culinary adventures are also a driving force and cuisines may include British, Moroccan, Ethiopian, Thai, Afghani, Korean, and Cuban even if they can't be found quite yet in the area. Putting on an ‘underground dinner’ or a ‘dinner in the dark’ is also on the list so stay tuned!

Finally, please feel free to recommend a restaurant or event! I'll never be able to track down the best the area has to offer, even though I'll do my darndest. So please help as much as you like. Now let’s get this started!
