Issue: May 21, 2015
Every now and then, a journalist gets that unicorn assignment—one so far
removed from real work that it's basically a magical ride. I say as much
because arts editor Brad Bynum and I just checked out a slew of Midtown
bars, had at least one drink at each place—an act of sacrifice,
y'all—then did our best to recount the trek in this week's feature
story. Recollections vary.
Meanwhile, news editor Dennis Myers clues us in to Washoe County School
Board's entertaining legal-counsel woes; columnists Sheila Leslie and
Brendan Trainor discuss petulant legislators and systemic racism,
respectively; and film writer Bob Grimm takes a gander at the new Mad
Max movie. Good stuff.
Thanks for reading, and be sure to pick up our print edition for
exclusive columns, cartoons, and more. (This issue can also double as a
bar coaster, a drink bib, a phone-number log or something to hide behind
in public.) If not for you, we'd hit rock bottom.
