Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
Reno Loves Local Campaign offers gift cards to local businesses for writing a #RenoLoveLetter.

Our area is made special by the impressive collection of family-owned stores, local restaurants and skilled artisans sharing so much of their diverse talents and offerings with us. No doubt you’ve walked away from the salon thrilled with a perfect haircut; you’ve likely talked for days about that perfect cocktail from Death and Taxes; maybe you’ve tried to recreate mochi from your favorite night of sushi (wait, maybe that’s just me — my family makes mochi on New Years!).
