FROM THE EDITOR: It’s August, which means the days and nights are hot as we grasp to the last few days of summer. For most of us here at Reno Passport, though, August means one thing and one thing only: BURNING MAN! Though I may be dating myself here, my first burn was in 1996 – before there were roads and rules. But there are so many things to prepare for before you go, whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned vet, which is why we’ve put together a pretty comprehensive guide. Please visit our website (http://renopassport.com) to read more tips and to contribute your own.

Top Tips for Food at Burning Man One of the most crucial elements to enjoying yourself at Burning Man takes place before you even leave town: packing your food. If you haven’t been to Burning Man before or weren’t really playa prepared the last time you went, here are some dietary desert tips from RP staffers. Gina Adams

Minimize Waste: Bring jugs of water and water bottles to refill so that you have less recycling to bring home. If you’re going to drink beer, bring plenty of cheap beer in cans (like Tecate and PBR) because it’s easier to recycle them on the playa or at home. Snack Easy: I eat the shrimp Cup o’ Noodles since you just add boiling water, but my Monty likes to eat breakfast bars. Eat Your Meat: We have a small propane stove to heat water, and we have also grilled sausages on it. We have taken chicken salad and wrapped it in tortillas for an easy proteinpacked alternative. Using an RV: If you have an RV with a microwave, bring mini pizzas and leftover lasagna for quick heating. If you have an RV, with a freezer, bring popsicles to cool yourself down (bring enough to hand out at camp if you want to be a hero). 2 www.renopassport.com

Ed and Heidi Adkins

Boil-in-a-bag: Precook your food and put in gallon storage bags. Reheat bag in boiling water. There’s very little mess to clean, and you can reuse the water to heat other things, like other bag meals and couscous (just add water, cook for five minutes and voila). Minimize Waste: Always precook any pasta to minimize your waste water. Remove all packaging from food items to avoid excess waste you leave or have to haul back yourself. Eat Local: Don’t forget to stop and get Indian Tacos on the way there and on the way back. They’re super authentic and yummy! Be sure to bring cash because they always have their stands up on the side of the road outside Gerlach.

Juliana Bledsoe

Minimize Waste: Remove excess packaging from foods (take the outside box off cereals). Minimize Mess: Prevent soggy cooler messes by making sure everything in your cooler is securely sealed to keep water out. Maximize Cooler Space: Refrigerate only what needs it – many fruits and veggies do better when stored in a dark dry environment. Pack Dry: Dried foods are a great meal builder. Plan meals around dried foods such


as pasta, beans, lentils, etc that are easily cooked and stored. Trail mixes with dried fruits and assorted nuts are a great way to snack and get a natural energy boost. Balance Your Foods: Don’t forget to maintain a balanced diet on the playa. It gets really easy to eat mostly simple carbs and high fat, but remember that fruits and veggies will give you the most energy, help keep you hydrated, and keep things moving with natural fiber. Stay Hydrated: The more water content in the foods you’re eating, the easier it will be to stay hydrated. Also monitor salt intake for this reason.

Steve White

Ice, Ice Baby: Pack one cooler full of items that you plan to consume during the first part of the week. Take a second cooler and put dry ice on the top of your food. Tape the cooler shut until mid-week. This will keep your food frozen until the second half of the week. Minimize Waste: Avoid foods that create waste such as watermelons and cantalopes. Take a carton of egg beaters instead of eggs so that you don’t leave the shells behind. Cook Ahead of Time: Precook meats, vaccum seal and freeze to help avoid crosscontamination with other items in the cooler.  You can see one of the most common tips is to minimize waste. These are just a few of our staffers’ tips; for more tips, check us out online at http://renopassport.com and be sure to add your own tips to our comments section. www.renopassport.com 3

school years at Chicago’s legendary Medusa’s nightclub, Jonboy has embraced all elemental sounds of electronic music. After moving to S.F., he has been exposed to the funky overtones of West Coast house that continue to shape his music today. The Mener The Mener is a Reno-based electronic dance music DJ who brings a mix of electronic house music with an occasional break beat and reggae track to keep the crowd hooked. The Mener performs at electronic dance music events throughout the region.

EJ Luera Based out of Reno, EJ Luera is a DJ who has performed on just about every stage in town. EJ plays a variety of music, ranging from Hip Hop, Electronic Dance Music, House and Indie Rock.

Top Tips for Staying Hydrated at Burning Man The temperatures on the playa can skyrocket when the sun is in full force, and for many burners, the hot sun and high temperatures can put them at risk for dehydration. Here are some tips to staying hydrated while at Burning Man and for keeping out of the med tent. Drink Water! The most important tip for burners is to drink a lot of water and drink frequently. Drink at least eight ounces per hour or more if you’re active. The key to staying hydrated is to drink before you get thirsty. Being thirsty is often a sign of onset dehydration, so drink up! Keep Cool If you’re going to be walking during the hottest part of the day (between 1-5pm), dress lightly and pace yourself. Stop at the nearest shade spot every so often to take a break. Sweating excessively adds to the risk of dehydration, so you’ll need to frequently replenish the loss. Protect Yourself from the Sun Protection from the sun is a crucial element in staying hydrated. Consider bringing a widebrimmed hat to shade your head and face from the sun, a bandana to shade your neck and 8 www.renopassport.com

Shopping for Burning Man Costumes – Expressing Yourself In the search for the perfect playa wardrobe, even the avid burner can be overwhelmed by the vast assortment of sequins and fur at his or her disposal. Though the hard decision between the lime and fuchsia legwarmers is still your burden to bear, where to find all of your costume essentials doesn’t have to be.

Reno is home to many local businesses stocked with everything you need to look fresh and funky in Black Rock City. Lauren Gifford of Prism Magic Clothing and Imports in Sparks advises keeping two things in mind when putting together outfits for the Burn. “Make sure that 1, you can ride a bike in it, and 2, it’s porta-potty friendly,” Gifford said. “Speaking from personal experience, it sucks 12 www.renopassport.com

to be in a blue bear suit with the zipper stuck outside a porta-potty at 2am.” Prism Magic carries a wide variety of tutus, corsets, and even super hero costumes and chicken suits. Gifford also caters to men’s costume needs. “I actually do more costuming for men than women,” she said. “Men’s clothing is functional, not fashionable, and it’s hard for them to find fun things.” The Melting Pot World Emporium also carries a selection of men’s wear, and as the official Burning Man ticket outlet for the past 14 years, the Melting Pot has always been a reliable resource for first timers. “For a long time, we’ve really catered our store to burners,” said owner Eric Baron, who runs the store alongside his wife, Monique. “We have a lot of funky, fun, sexy, exotic couture.” In addition to clothing, the Melting Pot is a one-stop shop for light-up nightwear, pasties, hats, accessories and more. Just down the street, Junkee Clothing Exchange carries recycled clothing at affordable prices and features a costume corner to make shopping for playa wear quick and easy.


For a comprehensive selection of hosiery, lingerie and exotic dancewear, The Dollhouse, The Chocolate Walrus, and Romantic Sensations all keep their shelves stocked with sexy attire perfect for the occasion. They also make a special effort to cater to the costume needs of burners as the event draws nearer. Those who want to create original outfits on their own will find that Mill End Fabrics is the prime location for all sewing necessities. This warehouse-based store is filled to the brim with a full selection of fabrics including dozens of faux furs and stretch fabrics for putting together a one-of-a-kind costume to set you apart on the playa. This is also a great place to find fringe, pom poms, and every other sewing notion you may need to put the finishing touch on an epic burn night get-up. Shelter – Gotta Have It

The barren playa offers no naturally occurring shade, and the harsh weather conditions make a dependable shelter an absolute necessity. Daytime highs regularly exceed 100° F, and nighttime lows often dip into the 40’s. The extreme temperatures – coupled with high winds – make the playa an inherently difficult place to live for the week, but local businesses and online resources offer everything you need for dependable shelter in the desert.

A good shade structure makes a huge difference in enduring the blazing sun. Geodesic domes are a popular shade structure that can be assembled with relative ease and are also available pre-made online. For instructions on making your own Geodesic Dome, try www.geometrydome.com. Instructions as well as pre-fabricated domes for sale can also be found at www.desertdomes.com. Twin City Surplus, a long-time local resource for burners, carries tarps, camouflage netting, and parachutes, which all make great coverings for shade structures. Twin City also stocks tents, heavy duty camping stakes and other desert camping essentials. For all the brave tent campers, Cabella’s and REI are also excellent sources for camping supplies. For a more posh playa camping experience, RV’s are a great alternative, and local rental businesses have become more tolerant of renting to burners over the years. However, any availability for RVs during Burning Man have been booked solid for months. Kathy MacDonald, owner of Sierra RV Super Center, advises www.renopassport.com 13


shops

anyone taking their own RV to the burn to have it serviced before taking it to the playa. “I would have it checked to make sure the battery can hold the charge,” Macdonald said. “And be patient with your air conditioner. The air conditioner an RV will only get the internal air 20° cooler than the outside temperature.” Macdonald also strongly suggests changing the engine and generator oil and cleaning the air filter upon return. A solution of white vinegar and water will help cut the alkaline dust from all other surfaces. “The playa dust never really goes away,” Macdonald said. “It’s the gift that keeps on giving.” Transportation - Your Playa Bike Having a reliable bike at your disposal is a worthwhile investment to make before heading out to the event. Burning Man is a large-scale event, and a bike will not only save you time in navigating the playa, but also the inevitable blisters that show up after walking several miles every day. A beach cruiser or mountain bike is the best option for riding on the playa. The wider tires will make pedaling easier by keeping the bike from sinking into the loose sand. The alkaline dust that makes up the playa is also notoriously hard on bikes, and bringing an expensive, quality bike to the event is generally not recommended. 14 www.renopassport.com

“There’s no point in bringing a nice bike out to Burning Man,” said Ellen Jacobson, program coordinator for the Reno Sparks Kiwanis Bike Program. “It’s not kind to bikes.” The Kiwanis Bike program is a community organization that works year round to get local kids on bikes and to educate them about bike safety and repair. This program partners with Burning Man each year to help provide Burners with inexpensive playa bikes before the event, and to round up bikes after the event that are recycled back into the program. All remaining bikes are available for immediate sale and are priced from $30-$50, based on condition. All proceeds go to Kiwanis bike education programs, and burners are encouraged to donate unneeded bikes back to the program after the event. “It’s a totally symbiotic relationship,” Jacobson said. “The burners are investing in our kids programs.” Reno Bike Project is another local resource for inexpensive playa bikes. About 250 playa-ready bikes are available for $55 on a first come, first served basis. Proceeds go to Reno Bike project for non-profit community bike initiatives.

“It wanted to burn before we even got to the Burn,” he laughs, recounting the process of getting the ’74 Chevy step van across town. Johnno Lazetich and his wife, Jamie CooperLazetich are the creators of the Golden Gate Dream, which will be bridging the gap between theme camps at Burning Man this year. Like conventional bridges, the Golden Gate Dream is constantly evolving. Unlike

the majestic San Francisco bridge for which it was named, however, this bridge doesn’t stay in one place for very long. After attending Burning Man for the first time, Cooper-Lazetich (aka Miss Cooper), told her husband that she wanted two things the following year: an RV and an art car. He had been to Burning Man seven times already and brushed off her enthusiasm as what


seasoned Burners call “Second Year Syndrome” (when someone goes to Burning Man for the first time and leaves the playa with grandiose, seemingly impossible schemes for what they’re going to create next year). She was undeterred, and a short time later, the couple acquired a donated vehicle from a friend. The Golden Gate Dream would soon become reality.

The husband and wife team are a handsome couple, and their varied common interests reflect their creative compatibility. They work together, dj together, and build bridges together. Lazetich, or DJ Rhino, grew up in Reno and went to school at Oregon State and Kansas State, where he played football in college. It was in Kansas in the late ‘90’s that he immersed himself in the burgeoning underground electronica scene. Enamored with its culture and music, he learned how to dj. His name, DJ Rhino, was a nickname given to him by his

college buddies. Lazetich has narcolepsy, a condition that is marked by excessive, daytime sleepiness. When his friends would wake him up, they likened his gruff reaction to that of waking a sleeping rhino. The name stuck, and now it is both his dj and playa name. The couple is as mobile in real life as they are on the Playa. Right

now, they’re on tour. The mobile party is called The Bud Light Great American Summer No-Town Tour. “No-town,” says Cooper-Lazetich. “Where nobody tells you no.” Many djs who they admire tour frequently, and they decided that it was time to hit the road with their music. The joke is that besides playing at the Big Continued on pg 18 www.renopassport.com 17


Bounce music festival and Burning Man, they don’t leave Reno. Instead, they go to a different bar every month and throw a big party. The tour, which started in April and ends in November, is a quirky success. “We go to random bars, we set up for one night only and we take over the bar with a monster sound system, Go-Go girls, disco balls and a full merchandise table,” exudes Lazetich. “We turn it into a club for one night only.” The entrepreneurial team contacted Budweiser,

who loved the idea and quickly signed on as their sponsor. The couple, in addition to their sizeable contribution to Reno’s music scene, works to promote awareness and revenue for local social causes. Lazetich is the cofounder of Battle of the Rattle, a race up Rattlesnake Mountain that benefits the Nevada Diabetes Association for Children and Adults. The annual event has raised nearly $100,000 for the nonprofit organization. This year’s upcoming race will take place on Sept.

25, and the funds will help send children with juvenile diabetes to camp in Lake Tahoe. Whether it’s planning races, dj tours or the next, ambitious addition to the Golden Gate Dream, DJ Rhino and Miss Cooper are creating a sensation wherever they go. Although they don’t have a theme camp at Burning Man, their mobile bridge is easy to spot. You can enjoy their music on the Playa during a special appearance on Wednesday night at Reno on Fire pre-

sented by (BRC) Roots Society (look for the biggest white dome on the playa). You can also enjoy the pulsating, rhythmic beat of their music on their mutant vehicle- just look for the arching lights of the Golden Gate Dream. Hop on quick and pay the toll, because the bridge doesn’t stay put for long. “The bridge,” Lazetich says, “Goes everywhere!”

WHITNEY MYER Whitney Myer is a singer-songwriter who has been playing in the Reno-Sparks area for about a decade – since she was only 14. Surrounded by music her entire life, Whitney has received formal vocal training and plays guitar and the keyboard, which is quite obvious when you see and hear her perform. The band has recently released a new album entitled “Dream Killer,” which is inspired by the theme that we can sometimes be our own worst enemies by preventing our dreams and aspirations from becoming reality. The album is filled with songs that will take you on a soulful journey of popfunky tracks that are played by two of Reno’s most talented local music veterans: her father, Scott Myer, who plays guitar; and her uncle, Fred Myer, who plays the drums. Both her father and uncle previously toured with national bands No Doubt and Sublime. Vocals, of course, are belted by Whitney, a dynamic 23 year old whose colossal stage presence and vocal virility are somewhat surprising for her small size. On Aug. 26th at 7pm, The Whitney Myer Band will be releasing their new album 20 www.renopassport.com

Listen in to “Listen Out” The Mark Sexton Band’s New Album Mark Sexton’s passion for the sound and dedication of soul singers from past and present is evident in “Listen Out,” the sophomore album that raises the bar from the group’s last work on “Multiformity.” The songwriting, harmony and foundation all have seemed to fall right into place with this latest release. The band’s latest musical creation urges their audience to stop hearing music and to start listening to music. Because of the live studio recording done in Seattle, Wash., this album is as alive with passion and feeling as it should be. The construction of this performance has been two years in the making and has been well worth it. The patience put forth into this album collec22 www.renopassport.com

tively by the band is completely audible, and you can hear the work of art within this album. The Mark Sexton Band has led the way in further innovating the sounds of soul and reggae since 2006. The depth and body of the group’s work stems from their deep understanding of music and the message that it bears. The Mark Sexton Band flexes a significant message in their music: pure emotion and love. This group takes pride in the production of their sound, leaving no room for artificial feeling or contrived songwriting. Continued on pg 22


It’s clear The Mark Sexton Band doesn’t think twice when it comes to writing from the heart. Ignoring short-lived musical trends, the sounds from this group move on to see something more meaningful. Three full tours across the entire west coast speak volumes about the band’s musicianship and dedication to spreading their music and message. The success from their travels let the music speak for itself to all who witnessed their performances. Seeing albums find new homes at every show has pushed this dynamic group to new heights.

With the band’s potential hardly even tapped, this is truly a group you do not want to lose sight of. Listening to “Listen Out” will show you why. Text by Stag Buckthorn Band Photo by Alex Lemus

You can catch their CD release show at The Nugget Celebrity Showroom on Thur., Aug. 19 at 7pm. Find them online at http://marksextonband.com and http://myspace.com/marksextonreno.

Northern Nevada Farmers’ Markets It’s that time of year when farmers come to market their produce and local products – the time when fresh local fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, handmade foods and goods can be acquired on an almost daily basis. It’s summer time, which means farmers’ markets time. Nevada farmers come to market in August. The social impact of farmers’ markets is greater than most understand because there is no agenda and no shopping list. People see old friends and make new friends at markets. Shopping at a farmers’ market is a different type of shopping because it’s a social atmosphere. Even in this economy, people come to farmers’ markets.

Learning Express Toys 197 Damonte Ranch Parkway | Reno | 775.853.7884 | www.reno.learningexpress-toys.com/ Hours: Mon-Fri 10am-7pm; Sat 10am-8:30pm; Sun 10am-5pm Learning Express Toys is a specialty toy store laden with a magical charm that envelopes one upon entrance. Grounded and built on the belief that toys should encourage creativity and learning, foster developmental growth, and, of course, be fun, Reno’s local Learning Express Toys is doing just that and more - a lot more. The educational toy store is filled from bottom to top with unique toys for children of all ages. The shelves are loaded with a wide variety learning toys, infant toys and baby toys not found at larger retailers, making shopping here an exciting experience. Owners Suzanne and Wade Peterson have made the store an integral part of the community by giving back through fundraising and other charitable programs.

34 www.renopassport.com

“This year, we focused on giving to local schools and supported the Children’s Miracle Network,” Suzanne said. The store also held a toy drive to benefit Ashlee’s Toy Closet. Giving and getting gifts at the toy store is perhaps the most unique thing about shopping there. The Birthday Box gift registry makes gift giving extremely fun and simple. Children with an upcoming birthday can visit the store and fill a box with all the toys, games, puzzles, arts and crafts kits, science and nature products, construction toys, books and dolls their little hearts’ desire. Then the box goes on display with the child’s name, and gift givers simply come in and pick out a toy from the bucket. The birthday boy or girl receives registry cards to include in their party invitations.

At the beginning of August, an exclusive Uglydoll called Nandy Bear will be released, and Reno’s Learning Express Toys will be the only store in Nevada to sell this blue bear. Uglydolls were created when designer David Horvath signed letters to his love, Sun-Min, with a little cartoon of his character Wage at the bottom of the letter saying, “I miss you and I love you” next to it. Sun-Min sewed a doll of Wage and sent it to David in the mail. Soon after, the dolls were in mass production. “I have had the privilege to work with the creator on how their line can work better,” said Suzanne. “We’ve even been able to provide customers with autographed dolls.” Owners Suzanne and Wade Peterson were inspired to open the local franchise when they found there was no place in Reno to get what they needed for their two children, one of which is autistic and the other highly gifted. They decided they wanted to do something that allowed them to work with their children. The Petersons opened Learning Express Toys on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) in 2007, and since then, they’ve been attending toy conventions nationwide to stay on top of the newest, hottest toys on the market. They carefully research and select products from manufacturers from across the world. If they don’t have an item a customer is looking for, it is ordered by the time they leave the store. 36 www.renopassport.com

“We listen to the pulse of what are customers want,” Suzanne said. Be sure to visit the Learning Express Toys store to sign up for coupons, fan them on Facebook (facebook.com/learningexpressreno) and follow them on Twitter (@LEtoysInc) Text by Holly Dehm Photos by Juliana Bledsoe

August marks back to school time! The store will be having specials all month long. September will have a Birthday Sale to celebrate the anniversary of Learning Express Toys.


This is how Reno gets its culture on.


Shakespeare Animal Fund: Helping Pets and People in Need 142 Vassar St. | Reno | 775.342.7040 | www.shakespeareanimalfund.org/ Hours: Tues-Sat 10:30am-2:30pm Named after a cocker spaniel that became ill in 2003, Shakespeare Animal Fund is a nonprofit organization that has been helping low-income pet owners pay emergency veterinarian bills.

In an effort to raise money to continue helping pets and people in need, Shakespeare Animal Fund will be holding a gala fundraiser called Applause for Paws. The fundraiser will take place on Aug. 13, 2010 from 6-9pm at Circus Circus. In its third year, Applause for Paws will feature world-renown dog “There will be various types of trainer J.R.

If you are interested in helping Shakespeare Animal Fund continue to help dogs and cats and their owners, there are several ways you can help. You can become a member at several different tiers, which gets you a card, discounts to kenneling, dog food, supplies, etc. You can also become a sponsor at five different levels: $15 – Can Do So Much, $35 – Really Helps Us Help, $100 – Can Make the Difference in whether an Animal can be Saved, $500 – Help more than one deserving Animal get the medical care that can save their life, $1000 – Be a hero to 10 or more animals by giving generously. In addition to giving money to the organization, you can become a volunteer by writing grants, by delivering pet food to seniors, by educating the public, by giving away free pet food, or by contributing in whatever area of expertise you have. Shakespeare Animal Fund is also seeking board members who have to qualify and interview for the position. Because the non-profit has moved to a new location that they have to pay for (they used to be on Keystone Ave.), less money is going to the animals and is instead going to paying rent and utilities. They need help now more than ever in order to continue helping pets and their people.
