Dine. Connect. Relax at the Escape Lounge

Any weary traveler can attest to longing for the comforts of home—a place you can put your feet up, grab something to eat, and rest your mind for a few. Well, weary traveler, you no longer have to wait for home to find those comforts, thanks to Escape Lounges, a premium lounge experience, now available at Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

Regardless of your airline preference or the class you fly, you are invited to spend your in-between-flight time sitting in their comfortable chairs, taking in their modern chic ambiance, and enjoying complimentary food and beverages, freshly prepared in-house, while you catch up on email or the events of the day with your family. And, yes, you’ll have all the high-speed, free Wi-Fi you desire.

Reno Exclusive Chef and Bliss Babe contributor, Colin Smith of Roundabout Grill, was chosen to design the menu, which features breakfast, lunch/dinner, desserts, and cocktails—all with the flair and local charm you’ve come to expect from him.

“We really want to get the local flavor, from the local people, onto our menu,” Chef Smith said of his thought process for the cuisine. “We’ve brought some really fun menu items from the restaurant and introduced some new, seasonal items as well.”

Having the lounge in Reno was the vision of Reno-Tahoe International Airport President/CEO Marily Mora, who wanted to enhance the offerings at the airport and give travelers the comfortable setting they deserve.

“The addition of the Escape Lounges RNO adds another level of outstanding customer service to our airport,” she said. “Chef Colin brings local flavors to a lounge with an international reputation for quality and comfort. Our customers and our community can be excited about this latest addition to RNO.”

Another influential woman that helped to make this all possible is the President and CEO of MAG USA, the parent company of Escape Lounges, Rosemarie Andolino. With her twelve-plus years of experience in international airport management, Rosemarie knows what the everyday traveler wants and has a passion for making it happen.

“Our product is a premium product, and it far exceeds basically any lounge in the business, especially common use lounges,” Rosemarie explained. “We’re delighted to have partnered with local chef Colin Smith to provide healthy food options, in addition to indulgent options, for our guests to enjoy.”

This type of luxury experience, which started out as a successful venture in the U.K., has now begun to spread across U.S. airports, including Oakland, Hartford, and Minneapolis, and it’s not difficult to see why. Passengers can now avoid the crowded seating area at the gate, and enjoy a more private and inviting experience just a short walk away from their aircraft.

Local is the name of the game at the Escape Lounge RNO. In addition to featuring Chef Smith’s amazing cuisine, some of which includes elements from BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse, guests will also be treated to fresh coffee from Reno based Wood-Fire Roasted Coffee Company, mixed drinks designed by Roundabout Grill’s own mixologist, Sarah McElroy, and featuring Tahoe Blue Vodka, along with wine from Mark Estee of Liberty Food and Wine Exchange.

The Lounge is open daily from 4:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and admission is $45. For a reduced fee of $40, you can reserve your spot at the lounge ahead of time. And as a partner with the American Express Global Lounge CollectionSM, Platinum Card Holders, and up to two guests, are welcome to enjoy the lounge free of charge when they show their card at the desk.

Once you spend some time in the Escape Lounge RNO, you’ll wonder how you ever did without. But don’t take our word for it. Next time you find yourself with a wait time at RNO, stop in and take a look for yourself.

Wags & Whiskers Gala: A Night in Havana

The countdown is on for The Wags & Whiskers Gala, A Night in Havana, on Saturday, November 11 to benefit homeless pets! Presented by Renown and Hometown Health, this fabulous annual fundraiser has been revamped and reenergized to transport guests all the way to Cuba for a night of entertainment and giving back that you won’t soon forget! Tickets are on sale now and advance purchase is required. The Wags & Whiskers Gala, A Night in Havana, is Saturday, November 11 at Peppermill Resort Spa Casino and all proceeds directly benefit homeless pets at Nevada Humane Society.

Exciting, Cuban-themed entertainment will include dinner, online bidding (silent auction) and a live auction, but there’s also so much more! Salsa dancers and congo drums will make you move to the music, aerialists will offer sky-high entertainment and you’ll get a kick out of a Ricky Ricardo lookalike and celebrity impersonator! Savor unlimited Mutt-jitos and Meow-jitos or pick up a Cuban cigar (for enjoyment after and outside of the event) hand rolled right there in front of you! You’ll also meet some of the special furry friends that will have their best paw forward to thank you personally for helping them get the second chance they deserve.

The Wags & Whiskers Gala is an annual benefit to raise money and awareness for homeless pets at Nevada Humane Society. With over 17,000 animals coming through the shelter’s two locations (one in Reno; one in Carson City) each year, The Wags & Whiskers Gala will not only help to cover their cost of care, but focus on those who arrive that are sick and injured—therefore making an even bigger impact on lifesaving.

Tables of ten are $2,000 while individual tickets are $200. All tickets include dinner, unlimited wine, beer and signature cocktails and all of the festivities mentioned above. You’ll also learn why we are different and how we save the lives of those that may not always be saved at other organizations. We help the sick and injured, young and old, cute and ugly and our stories—and in person guests—will tell you why.

Looking for something fun to wear that fits in with the theme? Big thanks to the Pacifiers and Louis Blog for this article https://www.pacifiersandlouis.com/a-night-in-havana/ that will have you shopping in no time!
