Hot questions, icy toes, maybe basketball

There might be a Nevada basketball game this week. There may not be. We got it wrong last week and Saturday’s away game was also called off. And so it is in the time of the omicron. Hopefully this wave of the COVID-19 pandemic passes soon so that we can restore our community to health and activity.

In the meantime, some events are still relevant. Be sure to check in advance for potential cancellations and COVID-19 restrictions. Masking is still required in most places.

Here are five events to discover:

  1. It’s Hero’s Night / Comic Book Night in Lawlor as the Wolf Pack hoop team take on Boise State (possibly, see above). Details here.
  2. We don’t know about you, but we think libraries are pretty cool. The Downtown Reno Library in Washoe County is hosting a handful of events this week, including a family story hour, a sublimation print design and learning session, and the Chapter One Book Club.
  3. Reno Little Theater’s rendition of “Bull in a China Shop” opens this week with a bunch of questions for viewers: “What is revolution? What does it mean to disagree with the world? How do we realize our potential? And how the hell do we age together? These are the same things we asked ourselves while we were awake at 2 a.m., so maybe now we can get some answers. Details and tickets here.
  4. After watching Netflix’s “Dolly Parton: Here I Am,” you might be inclined to book a trip to Dollywood as soon as possible. In case you haven’t noticed, Dolly has a moment (or two). No need for a skedaddle in Tennessee, however. You can get more Dolly in your life (everyone needs more Dolly) right here at Reno in Dollylujah – A Celebration of Dolly Parton with Doll Parts, a group of mega fans studded with rhinestones.
  5. Come for the romance, stay for some chocolate and warm up at the end. Northstar’s Twilight Snowshoe Tour is a guided hike through the snowy forest that ends with a fire pit, s’mores, and hot chocolate. Bonus: the full moon will be near this weekend. Details here.
