'Things 2 Do!' This Weekend

Posted: Updated:

With snakes and spiders from across the world, to an old timey Valentine’s Day saloon crawl, there’s something for everyone in this week's 'Things 2 Do.'

Do you love anything creepy crawly, mapping out constellations and super red giant stars, or are you curious about how the winter Olympics helped promote Reno as we know it today? The Galena Creek Visitor Center is the place to be this weekend, as they bring snakes and spiders from across the world on Saturday at 2 p.m., a stars and constellations presentation and stargazing at 6.

On Sunday they have the writer of "Snowball's Chance: 'The Story of the 1960 Olympic Winter Games' David Antonucci talking about the games and the first "Miracle on Ice" hockey gold medal, starting at noon.

Love the smooth sounds of jazz and want to hear what the next generation has to offer? Then boogie oogie down to UNR’s Nightingale concert hall this weekend for the 'jazz in schools' event held by the Reno Jazz Orchestra! That event is Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a special concert by the Reno Jazz Orchestra and renowned trumpeter bobby shew on Sunday.

February is the month of love, and what better way to celebrate it than talking about human attraction, sex, love....and some of the devices related? This adults only social science attraction held by The Discovery museum will discuss and demonstrate everything from the potent aroma of pheromones, to a lube lunge, to what they call 'sperm racing' that starts Saturday at 6 p.m., but hurry, tickets are selling fast and they expect hundreds to attend!

Keeping with the adult themes, 'The Devil Made Me Do It' saloon crawl is hitting Virginia City this Saturday. Whether you're single, taken...or open for suggestions, historic Virginia City is the perfect place to have a hodunk! Check in starts at 10 a.m., crawl starts at 11 a.m..

If an old west saloon crawl isn't your speed, you’re in luck! Reno is holding a pub crawl from the big easy: the Mardi crawl! Bring you best Mardi Gras mask, throw on some feathers, glitter and beads, and be prepared for drink specials, live music, and costume contests! The party starts at 8 p.m. on Saturday at the headquarters bar.

And in celebration of Reno’s 150th birthday in 2018, the Reno Arts and Culture Commission is seeking designs for an official municipal flag for the City of Reno. The Reno Flag Project, based on community involvement, aims to educate the public about flag design and Reno history and will ultimately produce a meaningful symbol of civic pride. The workshop will be held at The Holland Project on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m.  Attendees must RSVP here, or at workshops@hollandreno.org.
