On Wednesday, 3/6, explore art and spirituality at the Morris Burner Hotel during their Pagan Arts Night/Magical Inks.

Comedy

On Thursday 3/7, Reno Tahoe Comedy presents comedian and political satirist, Will Durst. “With the sacred cows begging to have their pomposity punctured, the world cries for a man with the aim, strength and style to hit them where it hurts the funniest.
