~Sierra Arts Brew HaHa 2009~ Northern Nevada~Things to Do, Places to Visit & People to See~

What is a Brew HaHa?

The definition of a Brew HaHa is basically defined as:

"A good time or party that involves the extensive drinking of brew(beer)..."

When Northern Nevadans  hear the term "Brew HaHa," we immediatly think of the Sierra Arts Brew HaHa that, for the past 14 years has helped raise money for  Sierra Arts of Northern Nevada.

Sierra Arts was founded in 1971 and have since been supporting and promoting art and culture in the Reno and Sparks community. Dance, music, painting, poetry, creative writing, theater and sculpture are all part of how individuals express their passions.  Sierra Arts is committed to helping, encouraging and enabling this creativity.

Through various fundraisers, contributions, education, outreach programs and classes, Sierra Arts is able to support the the arts and artists in our community.

 The  2009 Brew HaHa will be held on January 24Th at John Ascuaga's Nugget in Sparks, Nevada from 8p.m. until midnight. Attendees will be gathering in the Rose Ball Room to drink and dance the night away.

More than 80 different brews will be available for sampling from various vendors including Newcastle, Silver Peak, Great Basin, Buckbean, North Coast, Mammoth, Big Sky, and Gordan Biersch. Food and a no-host bar will also be available for those who choose other libations.

The event will also feature musical guests Sol'Jibe. Sol'Jibe is one of Reno's favorite local bands. Sol'Jibe's sound is flamenco-rock. Essentially, they blend rock with jazz using electric violins with amazing vocals. To hear some of their music you will find a "you-tube video" at the end of this blog.

 The cost Brew HaHa 2009 is $50 general admission, $60 for V.I.P. tickets. Price includes entertainment, a commemorative beer pint and all the beer you can drink!

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Sierra Arts' vast programs which further the organization's mission to "nurture, teach and support the arts locally."
