Reno’s first stand alone growler fill station opens today in Midtown at 555 S. Virginia St .#105. They will feature over 30 brews on tap from local and national brewing companies, all you need is a growler, which they can supply or you can bring your own. I have my trusty Silver Peak growler, would it be taboo to take it over and fill it up with other yummy beers? Heck no! Go check them out, they are in the same shopping center as Great Full Gardens, just as South Virginia downslopes into Midtown.

While perusing Midtown the other day I ran across this seemingly new business near Mandala Massage Supply Company. It's called Awake and Aging, and they offer everything from chakra cleansing to aromatherapy sessions, as well as offer up quite a few courses on their Facebook Page here. Check them out! They are located at 737 1/2 South Virginia.

Bernie Carter owns the building, and was converted from a crack den (a real quick den, where drugs were often delivered on mopeds) to a commercial duplex where the massage supply store and Awake and Aging are located.

Look for a new project coming to this corner of Stewart and Sinclair, on the border between Downtown, Midtown and the Wells Avenue Conservation district. I don't know much about the project yet, other than it will comprise of the empty lot next to the green Victorian, the space between the green Victorian and the smaller home on Sinclair, and then the small green home on Sinclair as well. It will be residential., and it's not a Marmot project.

Just a quick rumor I heard at Shea's Tavern in Midtown; Midtown Eats will eventually be moving over to Cheney Street to a new building near Death and Taxes. This, I  knew already. This makes sense, since both venues are run by Sadie and Ivan.

Then I heard that Shea's will be taking over Midtown Eat's restaurant space, opening a new restaurant, and the new kitchen wil serve both Shea's and the new restaurant.

This way, Shea's can remain a smoking venue.
