But, we need your help!

As many of you already know, our past wasn’t always filled with plentiful omelettes and Chadillacs (sorry, couldn’t resist the menu reference). In fact, our family really didn’t have much and struggled to make ends meet for many years.

We used food stamps at the grocery store, shopped at discount and thrift stores, would have meager garage sales to try to make ends meet and we would also stand in line at St. Vincent’s for food commodities and shopped the thrift store for living essentials.

Because of our abundance of love and faith, we went “From Rags to Restaurants” but we will never forget our humble beginnings. That is why we are happy to give back to our community and the very same charities that helped us through those meager times.

During the whole month of August, we are having our 2nd annual toiletry drive for the Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada and St. Vincent Programs. Needed items include travel-sized toiletries, such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, etc.

And check this out: If you bring in a donation, you get one free mimosa or juice! It’s a win/win! You donate to local families that need your help AND you get a free mimosa. You really can’t go wrong.

Please visit any 3 of our restaurants in Reno or Sparks and help support a great cause today!

At the Squeeze, we LOVE to feed people, and we’re sure you can tell by our huge portion sizes that we believe that no one should ever go hungry.  This is why we’re super excited to announce what we’re doing to make a difference in feeding hungry kids and adults, here at home and across the country.

The stats:

  • According to The Will Play for Food Foundation, in 2012 more than 31 million low-income children requested meal assistance
    That’s Thirty-One MILLION Children… In the United States of America.
  • According to The Food Bank of Northern Nevada, 1 in 4 kids in Washoe County don’t know where their next meal is coming from AND
  • More than 16 percent of Nevada’s population misses meals

We know we can make a difference. Not only do we LOVE to serve our guests but we also LOVE to serve our community and our country.  We’ve recently teamed up with 2 amazing causes we’d like to share with you!

The first, is a hunger project named eatiply™.  eatiply™ is a meal for meal food donation project, created to fight hunger in local communities, raising sustainable support.  When you dine at an eatiply™ restaurant like us, every select item ordered provides a meal to someone in the community going without. It’s that simple.  Right now, we are providing this at our Sparks location, so please swing by and check it out!

What’s great is these donations stay right here in OUR community. eatiply™ currently partners with multiple local food banks as their distribution partners to make sure the donations are going back into supporting our community.

The next one, with the help of our amazing services provider, ACN, we are supporting The Will Play for Food Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to provide meals, sustainability programs and education to Children-In Need in every community in the United States. Through their amazing WPFF event, they are brining Entertainment, Business and Fan communities together to end childhood hunger! Here is a quick 4-minute video…check it out!

We absolutely love what we do. Providing amazing food in a fun environment with great people is what makes us happy. And we are so super stoked to be making a dent in something we feel so strongly about…feeding hungry people! We truly do appreciate YOU, our guests. Because without you, none of this would be possible!

It is so amazing to help these worthwhile causes! If you are interested in how you or your business can also get involved in these causes, please feel free to contact Misty Young at 530-305-3599 or misty@squeezein.com.

At the Squeeze In, we’re in the business of eggs. In fact we serve an average of 685 eggs a day, or about a quarter million eggs a year. Mind boggling! But what’s even more interesting than our impressive egg usage is how much you can tell from a person by their egg order. Curious what your preference says about you? Check out our Egg Horoscope and let us know what you think!

Scrambled- This is by far the most ordered style of eggs, and is always a popular choice for everyone from the very young, to the very old. If you like scrambled eggs this means you’re flexible and tend to be easy-going. Scrambled eggs are often thought of as simple, but that doesn’t mean you are plain, and in fact shows a great deal of versatility. You tend to get along with everyone (scrambled eggs are friends with everything from peppers to peanut butter!) and you’re not afraid to mix things up!

How do you love your eggs cooked?

Over Easy/Over Medium- If you’re an over easy or over medium kind of person then you’ve got lot’s of friends. Not afraid to turn things over, but still want things to be natural, you love to break the yolks and mop them up with everything from toast to spuds. You like your life like you like your eggs, a little messy, a lot of fun and always delicious.

Over Hard- The overhard people of the world like the idea of eggs cooked all the way through like scrambled, but still want the separation of church and state-errrr-white and yolk. This type of egg order means you’re organized, dignified and always keeping an eye on safety and security.

Poached- When you order your eggs poached your server instantly knows that you are worldly, respectable and tradition loving. You’re probably the type of person who remembers their mom making them poached eggs and toast on cold winter mornings and long to have that sense of innocence and purity back. You tend to be particular in how you like them poached, but that doesn’t mean you’re cranky or rude, just that you like what you like. If you can get served a delicious poached egg, you’ll be a friend for life.

Sunnyside up- A lot of people like to order their eggs this way because they like the way it sounds, but in reality, not many go for the extra runny style of eggs. Those that do love to have a good time, tend to eat them with pancakes, and always have a smile on their face. Sunnyside up people aren’t afraid to face the world and chase their dreams!

Basted- Not a common type of egg preparation but always a good one. If you’re a basted egg then you’re a gem. You tend to be quiet and observant, but loving, loyal and reliable. Not always the first to speak up, but always there to lend support or guidance.

Hard boiled- You’re either eating a Cobb salad, helping dwindle the last of the easter supply or you’re 5 years old. If you don’t fall into one of these categories and you ordered your eggs hard boiled, well then you are just a dancing circle among a throng of squares. You probably like to spice them up with salt and pepper, just like the way you like to add spice to your life.

Whites/beaters- Obviously you’ve got an eye out for health and well being. You like to be in control and you like to look good. Your

number one priority is your happiness and relationships, and if that means eating diet eggs then so be it. You’re probably an athlete, or at least athletic, and you choose to seize life by the huevos!

Funny how much you can tell about a person just by their egg order! Does your egg preference accurately represent you? What did I leave out or get wrong? Leave a comment and let us know!

Alien Abduction!

We love our aliens and thank Grandpa Marvin for his loving service to the Squeeze!

We love our aliens and thank Grandpa Marvin for his loving service to the Squeeze!

There’s been an ALIEN ABDUCTION!

You all know we have a thing about aliens at the Squeeze In. In fact, they’ve become our mascot and each location has several of the signature aliens on the walls, in the bathrooms and even outside the restaurants. The alien design, which was created decades ago by my grandfather, Marvin Mitchell, has become a Squeeze In staple.

When we opened the Northwest Reno Squeeze In in 2008, we asked him to make a little double alien that could sit sandwich-board-style outside of the restaurant. He happily complied.

The Crime:

After about 6 months the aliens were abducted on a bright and busy Sunday morning. Devastated, we put out an APB for our missing buddies and waited with baited breath for their eventual return. In the meantime we asked Grandpa if he could make us another set, but this time to make them really big, like human size, so they wouldn’t fit into the back of a car. He again happily complied, and those aliens have been our resident pair ever since.

Their Joyous Homecoming:

One recent morning our little original pair that went missing over 5 years ago from Northwest Reno unexpectedly returned! A guest brought them into the Sparks Squeeze In saying, “I woke up this morning and these were in my yard. Don’t know who left them there but I’m guessing they are yours?” What a surprise! The little aliens will now stay in Sparks with their larger ones, which now appears to be an alien family.

So whoever abducted them, I hope you had fun with our little buddies and hope to see pictures of their adventures someday. Thanks for getting them back to our loving arms!
