Issue: August 24, 2017

Hi, and welcome to this week's issue of the Reno News & Review. I can't believe summer is almost over already. But Best of Northern Nevada results have been released, and the usual flurry of late summer events in the Truckee Meadows have been coming and going almost quicker than I can register. I'm not quite ready for cooler weather, but with fall comes our annual Fall Guide, and I'm definitely ready for that. You'll find it on shelves and online on Sept. 14.

In this week's issue, our feature story is about Jimboy's Tacos, a regionally popular fast food chain that got its start in a trailer at Lake Tahoe. Over in the arts section, you'll find a story from Josie Luciano, who checked in on a massive cataloging effort that's underway at the University of Nevada, Reno art galleries ahead of an anticipated move to new facilities in 2018. I wrote a piece about Create, a BYOB paint and sip workshop space with a focus on arts and crafts.

In news this week, Dennis Myers took a look at how Nevada ranks in yet another quality of life measure, vaccinations for young children. This time, the numbers are not embarrassing for the Silver State. And, of course, we've got our regular columns from local contributors Sheila Leslie, Brendan Trainor and Bruce Van Dyke. Food writer Todd South headed north to Carmelita's Taqueria in Golden Valley for this week's review, and Drink columnist Marc Tiar checked out Jub Jub's Thirst Parlor.

If you grab a copy of the paper from your favorite coffee shop, bar or grocery store, you can check out columns and cartoons we don't run online, like Streetalk and Red Meat.
