So the Chocolate Bar downtown is closed. Sad face. No more chocotinis.

But never fear, chocolate covered-yummies will soon be replaced by enthusiastic sports fans, as Reno is getting it's first non-smoking non-gaming, sports lounge known as The Stick. Steve Towell and Kevin Johnson (owner of the Chocolate Bar) are launching the concept.Being the first of it's kind, The Stick will be a premier sports themed restaurant and a perfect place for friends, family, and business patrons to meet for lunch, dinner, happy hour, game day, late night and community gatherings.

Stay tuned for more info, as I will be getting a tour soon! They hope to open in December/January.

A company out of Irvine California called 'Medifarm' just closed escrow on the Scotland Yard Spy Shop building at 1085 South Virginia for $1.2 million. The Scotland Yard spy shop dude then bought the building across the street, 1092 South Virginia Street for half that price. Hopefully he is moving his spy shop over there. That's a cool shop.

Medifarm is associated medical marijuana dispensaries in California and looks to be opening up shop in Nevada in both Las Vegas and Reno.

Midtown will be getting a medical dispensary soon.
