Some of you may know, I am fortunate enough to be able to work from home most of the time. However, working from home isn’t always as interactive and social, so I try and get out by visiting local coffee shops. There are so many local spots in Reno! It is a little out of control, and I don’t have time to cover all of them so I am sorry if I missed your favorite spot. But I’d love to try it out, so be sure to comment below! I spent the last couple weeks sitting in different places to see which ones I enjoyed most and wanted to put together a Reno Local Coffee Shop Guide with our current favorites – mainly mine, because let’s be real, Leanna just loves her lattes. Hub on Riverside I enjoyed the Hub! It was a nice environment to sit in and the design is very appealing. I found myself sitting there for multiple hours in the tea area reading articles and sending emails. It was pleasant and the staff was really great! Coffee was delicious as usual, and the way they roast their beans is delicious. It’s a bold cup of coffee. I highly recommend it. I will say the food section at Hub is a bit pricey, but if you are already there, it makes sense…

If you remember in my last post, Valentine’s Day is all about the food for us! Whether we go out or eat in – which is about 50/50 each week depending on how we are feeling. This year we decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day early and teamed up with Whole Foods to bring you the perfect Valentine’s Dinner you can make at home for under $60! Now, you know we shop at Whole Foods pretty often (usually 2-3x a month) in addition to some of other favorites (Trader Joe’s, Target, Costco), but we almost ALWAYS get our meat at Whole Foods.

A few of weeks ago, we were invited to try Centro Bar & Kitchen’s NEW menu! We had just gotten back from a weekend full of no-tech, so I was so excited to pick up my camera to get some shots of the new food and drinks! Let me tell you, it was amazing! Check out the new menu (PS – I realize this is probably hard to fully read, but I really just love the look of the photo and Kit’s wedding band, so you can check out the clearer menu here): Hibiscus Pisco Sour Centro started us off with this Hibiscus Pisco Sour, which was pretty yummy! I am a very slow drinker though, and didn’t love how the flower petals started getting in my straw/in my mouth, but if you are a quick drinker, it is really good! Plus, the little details that Centro takes for the topping of the drink are amazing! Hamachi + Ahi Poke The first dish they brought out was the Hamachi + let me tell you, I do not like raw fish (with the exception of Ebi and Ahi – do those count?). However, I am always up for trying something new and this hamachi was so fresh and delicious, I could have eaten 10 more! Thanks for being partners with Sierra Gold Seafood – best fish here!…
