Yep, Covid uncertainty strikes again! Bummer! They won't be open right away, so let's try again 9/23. I have heard so much about this fun new rum (and etc!) bar in Midtown, and their menu reminds me muchly of many years of Caribbean fun! Easy to reach with the repairs in the area winding down, it's between the Mary St roundabout and Vassar light. Let's try it and add to our regular spots!

This great little neighborhood restaurant is famed for brunch, but has a large cocktail variety, beers and wines, and great apps too, etc. Relaxing pub atmosphere, but small place, so please no drop-ins. Thanks. They are open late, so plenty of non-rush camaraderie. Website: http://www.lakesidebargrill.com/ Menu at: http://www.lakesidebargrill.com/menu/
One of the newer casual Italian venues in the south central Reno area is La Cucina. A notable fact is that I always hear positive things (as opposed to mixed) about this spot. It's the longtime brainchild of the more upscale Johnny's Italiano on the west side (a recent meetup), and offers a relaxing atmosphere.

Join us at a beautiful facility, Mill Street Still and Brew (aka 10 Torr Distillery). They distill some wonderful spirits and brews, and recently revised the name of the facility, to give publicity to the name 10 Torr. We tried the "sneak preview" and its been great ever since. From the website: (http://millstreetstillandbrew.com/) Or-- http://10Torr.com "Mill Street Still and Brew is a new state-of-art brewery and distillery facility located in downtown Reno, Nevada. The building at 490 Mill street was originally constructed in 1940 as a grocery store. The building has now been transformed into a beautiful new high-tech brewery and distillery that still maintains the original building truss ceilings, brick masonry and maple hardwood floors. Great efforts were made to preserve the original old character of the building to uniquely blend with the new modern brewery and distillery usage. The tasting and tap room provides customers with some of the finest precision Crafted Beers and Vacuum Distilled Spirits made by the Whipple Brewing and Distilling Co while enjoying the comfortable and relaxing charm of the old building with its new state-of-art processing equipment. Our precision vacuum distillation process (also known as molecular distillation or cold distillation) occurs at low pressure and ambient temperature. When traditional heat distillation is applied to a spirits mash, chemical reactions will occur that cause unwanted harsh flavors and loss of the natural flavors in the distilled spirits. Our State-of-the-Art 10 Torr Technology results in no chemical reactions so that all of the spirits mash natural flavors are completely preserved; thus producing the finest tasting spirits in the industry. Taste the difference for yourself!"
