July – August 2017
The results of our 20th annual readers’ survey—the 2017 Best of Nevada—are here! We took a little throwback approach this year and added in some categories from the first year’s contest, plus a few new ones just for fun. Take a look at the results on page 36, and congratulations to all the winners. We’re taking a peek at some of Nevada’s most notorious bad guys this issue; see which dastardly dudes made the cut on page 22. From bad guys to great women, we have a story on Mama Inez of Casale’s Halfway Club in Reno. Just 90 years young, this great lady serves up some tasty Italian food; read about it on page 44.
Ancient Nevada takes a look at the fossils found in the Silver State, and you can discover them on page 56. We’re continuing our state park series and you can find this issue’s story on page 62. Our 3rd annual Silver State Scavenger Hunt locations are in this issue! Grab your copy, and hit the road for this great contest. You’ll find this year’s list on page 68. And finally, it’s been 10 years since we’ve written about Burning Man but we rectify that on page 70. Prepare to be enlightened and engaged.
