Issue: June 07, 2018

Welcome to this week's Reno News & Review!

Have you voted yet? The primaries aren't until next Tuesday, June 12, but the Best of Northern Nevada poll closes tonight. We hope you'll take a few minutes to cast your votes for your favorite cafes, celebrities, and just about everything else you can think of that makes Northern Nevada a great place to live. Start here:

Here's what's in store in this week's issue: In Feature, Dennis Myers took a look back to the middle of the 20th century, when Nevada threw away the opportunity to rid casinos of mafia rule. In Arts&Culture, we asked some notable local readers and writers to share their summer book picks. In Food, contributor Todd South sampled some delicious-sounding Brazilian dishes at Dee's Bakery & Cafe in Sparks, and in Drink, Editor Brad Bynum bid a fond farewell to Lincoln Lounge, which is closing after a decade-long run.

And always, if you want to try out something new this weekend, check out the hundreds of ideas in our calendar listings and concert grid.

Thanks for reading!
