Oct5_dining_web_smallDine the District, a self-guided tour of Reno restaurants, runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Oct. 5. Guests will enjoy entertainment and culinary offerings from Reno-area restaurants, including the Wild River Grille, Java Jungle, West Street Wine Bar, Campo, Noble Pie Company, Fuego for Tapas & Vino and the Imperial Bar & Lounge. This is the second year for the event sponsored by the Reno Riverwalk Merchants Association. Proceeds will go toward continued development of the Riverwalk District in Reno.

The event is free for children age 10 and younger.  Participants will need to present their ticket receipts to the Reno Tahoe Visitor Center inside the Reno eNVy store, 135 N.
