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.

When planning significant street changes to one of Reno's most popular and dense neighborhoods, who are the primary stakeholders that should influence it? The public that frequents the neighborhood?

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.

WHEN: Tonight, January 15, 6 pm

WHERE: 777 Sinclair Street, Reno, NV 89502

Unbeknownst to many in the community, the city recently started a new graffiti program in MidTown as a pilot project which will expand to the rest of the city, where graffiti abatement teams are up at the crack of dawn, before most of us even rise out of bed, to remove tags from the night before.

This of course relies on the tags still being reported via Reno Direct, however the program is yielding stellar results in MidTown.

The program is called GET (Graffiti Enforcement Team) and they've recently been hyper-focusing on MidTown by cleaning and providing awareness in the most vandalized areas.

Tonight the GET will be sharing the most recent developments for the MidTown District. This includes the introduction of an 'adopt a block' program, graffiti identification, and new innovative ways to approach graffiti abatement. The Children's Cabinet will also introduce a new and exciting program to combat graffiti, which will benefit our youth and redirect bad habits.

The City of Reno 'gets it' now, and is refocusing efforts on graffiti after budget cuts nearly gutted the graffiti program in 2012/2013. At one of our recent West of Wells Neighborhood Groups, we were informed by our beat officer that the city has re-budgeted the Graffiti Tag Investigator position, though I am not sure if it's been filled yet or not.

If you live in MidTown, West of Wells, or own a business in these neighborhoods, I encourage you to attend tonight, and meet the hardworking team that has made a visible difference in MidTown.
