Issue: July 05, 2018

Welcome to this week's Reno News & Review. Our feature story this week is from News Editor Dennis Myers. It's about gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt. As attorney general, Laxalt has raised questions about his willingness to enforce measures approved by Nevada voters. Myers examines some of these cases and asks what it all would mean for legislature-enacted laws Laxalt would have to carry out if he were elected governor.

Over in the arts section, we have story from Luka Starmer about LimeBikes in Reno and another from Andrea Heerdt about a new VR archive at the University of Nevada, Reno. It was created by the Digital Initiatives Department to document Reno's vibrant mural scene as of 2017. In our Musicbeat feature this week, you can read about sisters Gwendolyn and Lucy Giles, who make up the Sacramento band Dog Party. They'll be kicking off their summer tour in Reno at Holland Project on July 6. The show starts at 8 p.m., and will also include Life After Mars from Reno and Color TV from Los Angeles.

Food writer Todd South went to Jalapeno's Mexican Food for this week's review. It's a small family taqueria with a sizeable menu of classic dishes and modern favorites. And for our Drink column, I visited with Nicholas Dismang, the owner of the Polo Lounge. When he purchased it last summer, he decided to build a new dance floor and stage in an adjacent retail space. On July 6, the bar will be celebrating one year under Dismang's ownership.

Don't forget to grab a copy of the paper from your favorite bar, coffee shop or grocery store. It's the only way to see some of our columns and cartoons. And it's the only way to see the awesome work put in by our design team each week.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend! Remember, it's illegal to set off your own fireworks here in the Truckee Meadows! And, please, designate a driver or pay for a ride if you're going to drink.

Happy reading!
