cocktail01-cin-cin-555x370-9385688-6562413Fresh, seasonal, local food and drink will be the main highlights at the edible Reno-Tahoe magazine five-year anniversary party on Wednesday, April 22 (Earth Day) at Nevada Museum of Art in Reno.

The museum’s beautiful atrium will be filled with guests enjoying a delicious evening. Talented Mark Estee, chef of chez louie in the museum (as well as Campo, Burger Me, Reno Provisions, and Heritage Restaurant), has created a menu to savor, including grass-fed beef from Ranch One in Genoa, pork from Alpine Ranch in Churchill County, chicken from GirlFarm in Reno, and lamb from Hulsman Ranch in Susanville, as well as vegetables and fruits from various local farmers. Guests also will enjoy seafood from Siren Fish Co. (providing sustainably caught seafood from Bodega Bay and the San Francisco Bay).

Event participants will sip two delicious signature cocktails created by Shawn Plunkett, owner/bartender of 1864 Tavern in Reno. The Tahoe Mule will be crafted with Tahoe Blue Vodka (based in Lake Tahoe) and the Spring Creek — featuring local honey from Al Bees in Reno — will highlight Frey Ranch Vodka (made in Fallon). Delicious wines from Churchill Vineyards (grown and bottled in Fallon), as well as from other vintners, will be poured that evening. And custom brews will be created for the event by brand-new IMBIB brewing in Reno, which is debuting its brewery at this event. One of the beers will feature local hops, grain, and Davidson’s Organic Tea (based in Sparks).

Desserts will feature freshly churned ice cream from Hoch Family Creamery in Minden, #NotACronut from Rounds Bakery in Reno, mini-cupcakes from Batch Cupcakery in Reno, White Chocolate Panna Cotta with Strawberry Jam and Meringue from Dough Catering in Reno, and local confections from Kimmie Candy in Reno.

Musical entertainment will be provided by The Socks, and all art exhibit galleries will be open for view during the event, which runs from 5 to 9 p.m. Also, guests will have photos snapped by a portrait photographer in our photo booth and by a roaming photographer, who will capture all of the spontaneous fun.

Tickets are $45 per person. Guests can reserve a spot at the event by visiting EventBrite.com and searching for “Edible Reno-Tahoe 5-Year Anniversary Party.”
