Conversation starters: Nevada’s 150-year anniversary theme and more

Not mincing words

Nevada’s 150-year anniversary is coming up on October 31, 2014. The theme, “Battle Born, Nevada Proud,” was created by 2-year-old Mighty Morphin Power Rangers superfan Jimmy McPippen. “Nevada strong! Fight California good! Pow! Pow!” added McPippen.

Bar Brawl

Some bar in Gainesville, Florida, tried to call itself the Double Down Live. The real Double Down—the one on Paradise and Harmon—sent a cease and desist order, so now the Florida bar is calling itself High Dive. Wise choice, High Dive. Any bar crazy enough to serve Ass Juice isn’t going to back down from a fight.

Take it to the bank

President Obama’s Making Home Affordable Program and the Hope Now Alliance are teaming up to host an event at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center in which underwater homeowners will get to meet face-to-face with representatives from Bank of America, Chase, One West, US Bank and Wells Fargo. Don King, the event’s promoter, promises “a surefire bloodbath.”
