    New Year's Eve Party
    Our thoughts: The party saw folks dancing the night away as plenty of folks also got kisses to bring in the new year. We hope everyone enjoys the 2009 year and keeps safe so we can do it again.

    January 26 - February 6, 2009 (Monday)
    Red Flag - Nellis, AFB
    For more information on these events see Flying Operations. These events are a great time to come out to Rachel and get some great photos of various military aircraft that participate in these events. Sometimes these aircraft fly so low to the ground you would swear they are going to run you down. These events put on a great air show as they maneuver through the skies and the terrain. For lots more information about these exercises please see the wikipedia.

    Our thoughts on this Red Flag
    : We saw lots of activity and high interest from around the area. The magnitude of interest was more than typical. We are not certain why this was, however, it was to be a great time for those who came out to watch the skies and events take place. Hope to see you at the next Red Flag.

    February 14, 2009 (Saturday) 5-9 PM
    Valentines Dinner 21st Annual
    We hope to see you here for our annual dinner. The cost is $17.99 per person or you can take advantage of our "Couples Reserved" early discount at $30.99. The couples early registration is good only through February 1st Appetizer Dish Soup or Salad Crab Salad or Shrimp Cocktail Prime Rib or Cornish Game Hen Vegetable Baked or Mashed Potato Our Special Very Own Strawberry Shortcake

    Our Input: As the weather has been somewhat intense with snow, rain, and wind, we can certainly understand how this would really put a dampening on some folks not wanting to come and enjoy the great dinner served for Valentines. To our amazement we had several folks make the time and effort to come and partake of our annual dinner and it was most enjoyable. We want to thank all who came and hope to see you again real soon. Take care and stay in touch, and this goes for those who came from overseas to spend this day with us!

    February 23 - March 13, 2009 (Monday)
    Red Flag - Nellis, AFB
    For more information on these events see Flying Operations. See the wikipedia.

    Our input: It seems these Red Flags just keep getting better all the time. Each seems to be more active and intense that the previous exercise.

    March 8, 2009 (Sunday)
    Motorcycle Club from Las Vegas
    The Knuckleheads Riding Club will be arriving about 11 AM with lots of Harley's to enjoy. Make your way out and get some great shots.
    A very nice letter from them to us follows:

    You guys were so wonderful and accommodating to us on Sunday. Everyone commented on how good the food was and surprised at how reasonable you charged! We especially liked the Jack and Cokes!!!
    The name of our club is The Knuckleheads Riding Club – Knucklehead is the name of an early Harley Davidson and it seems to be appropriate for the majority of our members! We are also members of an on-line motorcycle web site called and it is through this site we coordinated with the non members.
    Again, let me pass on all of the riders grateful thanks for taking such good care of us and don’t be surprised if another ‘invasion’ takes place later in the summer!
     Bob Taylor

    Our Input: What a great group to be a part of if you want to join or are looking for a motorcycle club to be associated with. These folks were so very pleasurable and funny. We have extended them a return invitation any time they want to come back. If was truly our pleasure to serve them. They had lots of great bikes.

    Our joyous inputs: Wow! We had a great showing for these events. Several folks stayed to enjoy both the dinner and the party. Seems that maybe several had a great time and may be a little green the next day or two. Thank you to all who came and we do hope that everyone did indeed see aliens and their spacecrafts as the good times were manifesting themselves all over the place. Darn the Irish!

    May 10, 2009 (Sunday) 12-8 PM
    Mother's Day Meal
    The dinner left one feeling the reverence within the room. Mother's, important to us all, are so much to each and every one, we can only say enjoy them while they are with us, because after they have passed, it hurts so much to not see them on their special day. They are always with us, and shall always be remembered. Mother I Love You.

    Our Thoughts on this weekend event: Approximately 40 people came out to enjoy the weekend event. Gale force winds prevented us from having our BBQ, but we all adjusted quite nicely to the food inside away from the wind and rain! A special thanks to John & Betsy Kolb for their Astronomy presentation; it was thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance and the Astronomy CD's were a great surprise bonus gift! Everyone also enjoyed "guy & his '51 Chevy" who came out and talked to everyone!

    Great time was had. We witnessed some pretty crazy costumes and lots of fun. Seems that lots of folks came to have a great time and they did.

    November 26, 2009 (Thursday) 2 - 6 PM Thanksgiving
    -- FREE DINNER --- Just bring a side dish.
    The best way to sum up the FREE dinner of Thanksgiving is to include this email we received and then you will understand why we do this. (Email follows) Hi Pat! We just wanted to say "thanks" for letting us join you on Thanksgiving Day. We had a great time visiting, shopping for souvenirs, stopping by the "secret" front and back base entrances and especially enjoying the fantastic food and company that you shared. We felt right at home. Our trip to Nevada was a big deal for us, as I recently lost both of my parents to cancer and this was the first Thanksgiving in my life that I didn't have family plans for the holiday. My wife, Donna and I wanted to plan something completely different to keep us from dwelling on the sadness of recent events. Your hospitality was the perfect remedy and it was a trip that Donna, my daughter Danielle and I will always remember. I've always been a UFO enthusiast and never miss a program on the subject; as an artist, I began my fascination by drawing aliens and spaceships at an early age. There's something so mysterious, yet so comfortable and familiar about Rachel. We can certainly see why you've built a life there. :-)

    Anyhow, keep us posted on the events coming next Spring. I was reading about the event you host in town where guest speakers talk on various related subjects amidst a friendly gathering of enthusiasts and it sounds like a great time for everyone. I only wish I could bring my four-wheelers out to your neck of the woods. It would make for an amazing experience for sure!

    Anyhow, thanks again for your hospitality and we wish you, and your family and friends a wonderful, healthy and prosperous holiday season!


    Ryan, Donna & Danielle

    P.S. - I'm attaching a picture we took in front of your wonderful Little A'Le'Inn :-)

    Little A'Le'Inn eases pains during Thanksgibving 2009

    New Years Eve Party
    Party favors, hats, and munchies - be there for 2010 to begin. Let us say there was some real noise makers around the time of midnight that the winds carried to the heavenly bound aliens.

    Jan 25 (Monday) - Feb 5 (Friday) 2010 Red Flag Exercise
    Again this year we have had a very busy and active sky. The Red Flag exercises bring together some of the best aerial shows you will ever see. From the high up tactical maneuvers, to the low soaring earth shattering, hair raising near miss 100ft overhead speed passes. They can just put you in awe. We hope everyone that came out to see this first exercise got a little something to remember it by. It can be pretty scary when those jets soar so low to the ground and just above your head. Wow !

    Feb 7 (Sunday) 2010 at 3 PM Super Bowl XLIV
    We had a great turnout for this year's Super Bowl game. Some folks loved the outcome; yet, others despised the final score. We of course remained neutral as you can imagine for several reasons. Some folks really take their football very serious... all in fun we say. Anyway thank you for spending a great day with us here at the inn. We enjoyed having you.

    Feb 14 (Sunday), 2010 from 2-8 PM Valentine's Dinner
    Some of the best times of the year are during those special holidays when we get to show off our feelings for those we love. This year's gathering for Valentines Day was one of those times. Our servers, bartenders, and cooks all dressed in very sharp stylish clothing with dress shirts, ties, and sport coats.

    We had folks who went all out in their manner of dress, displayed such love and tenderness to their life partners, and laughed so much they cried ... of course in each other's arms. We want to thank all who came out to see us on this day. You made this one of our best Valentines ever. The number of folks who enjoyed the meal with us was the highest we have ever had. From the flower arrangements and valentines cards to the prime rib and cornish games hens the day was a huge success.

    Feb 22 (Monday) - Mar 12 (Friday) Red Flag Exercise
    Again the exercise did not disappoint. The tremendous display of fast moving, low flying, super thrusting machines attacked the skies with a fury and vengeance. We had several guests come and spend the days and evenings so as to see all the excitement. It is still those low flying, super heart throbbing, sonic boom busting, over-head bullets of an aircraft rushing by that gives most folks just what they came to see - a thrill of a lifetime! Make certain to come out and catch the next one coming in July.

    Mar 7 (Sunday), 2010 Knuckleheads Motorcycle Galore
    Weather was not kind for the ride so this event was postponed.

    Mar 17 (Wednesday), 2010 St. Patrick's Day
    We saw green for days after this party and gathering. Lots of fun for all. The tables had green flowers and the one person showed up wearing 10 different shades of green and won an Alien Head GREEN cookie jar. The corned beef and cabbage dinner was well liked by all.

    May 1 (Saturday) & 2 (Sunday) 2010 X-Rides & Alien Fest
    The sponsored event did not have enough riders sign up so for this year the event was cancelled.

    May 8 (Saturday), 2010 Rachel Day Parade
    Our honored guest was the long time resident and pillar of our community Fay Day. She started the parade off in the lead car. We had over 50 motorcycles riders, Rachel Fire Engine, DRI Sheriff's car, ATV's, and of course the Little A'Le'Inn famous truck joining in the long line of vehicles. Lots of fun was to be had. The pot luck BBQ afterwards was a huge success as folks ate tons of food, laughed, and had some great times with each other. Pictures below.

    May 9 (Sunday), 2010 Mothers Day Steak Dinner
    The day was enjoyed by several "MOMS" and each was presented with a green alien bell! They could ring the bell to their hearts delight so all their loved ones could jump right up and provide them with whatever service they may have needed or wanted. It was great to see and lots of fun.

    Pat was presented with 4 beautiful rose bushes (pink, orange, white, and purple) that are planted out front of her place for all to enjoy. Pictures to follow shortly.

    May 31 (Monday), 2010 Turquoise Trail Chapter Harley Club
    We had a great visit from a Harley club and some super shots that were provided not only from the bar, but, photos from K Langley as well.

    Just a note of interest - we understand the BBQ went over really well and folks ate a bunch of food, however; some say the cook this year really out did himself. Should have been there as the say it was most excellently prepared.

    June 19 (Saturday), 2010 E.T. Highway Invasion! Geocaching
    Wow what a great bunch of folks who passed through our doors for most of this week and into the next. Seemed these people really love exploring the outdoors and finding those geo caches that have been left behind. The way this all works is pretty simple and most folks can get involved for a very low cost. You just need to get a cheap GPS device and decide where you want to go by using their website. More info can be found in these details. 1000 alien landings and a geocache at each landing sight! Get your special coins and join in on the fun.

    June 20 (Sunday), 2010 Fathers Day
    With all the Geocacher's in the area we had a busy day serving father's their highly deserved steak dinners. Lots of laughter and a great amount of talk about all the alien treasures found. This included the specially marked coins.

    July 4 (Sunday), 2010 Independence Day
    BBQ & Water Fight - Run for your life. As folks brought out some wicked water toys to show these young kids that they have nothing on the older generation when it comes to a good old fashion water fight. We heard said that you may be able to out run us, but; never out gun us!! Adults: 1 Kids : 0.

    The same score when it came to the BBQ as the food was most excellent. Maybe next year the kids will be a little wiser and more on the ball when they get splattered, dowsed and roasted. The food was much needed after all the activity going on during the water duels.

    August 21 (Saturday), 2010 ET Highway Marathon
    With hundreds of runners and observers ascending upon Area 51 and Rachel you could tell that something really special was going on or about to do so. This year's race brought more people and more runners than ever before. There was excitement in the air as if a new alien life form was about to descend upon us. And yes this is just what happened as all sorts of clothing styles and aliens from near and afar made their way through the beautiful night sky and down the ET Highway 375 to finish a race at the Little A'Le'Inn. This race has been deemed to be thee race to attend of all marathon races. Make certain to come out and join us again next year. Thank you for all who came and participated as it was truly a unique experience that everyone should take part of at least once; especially if you are a long distance runner.
    Race results are located here:

    November 25 (Thursday), 2010 Thanksgiving Free Dinner
    The day was a huge success. We saw lots of folks that we had seen from previous years and in addition; we got to meet many new folks who brought lots of great side dishes for everyone to enjoy. Judging from the amount of food consumed we would say nobody went home hungry.

    We truly love this day as it is our way of giving back to so many folks. We may never have met before, maybe you have never had a Thanksgiving with anyone in the United States and this was your first. Whatever brought you to our doorstep, we are glad you came and thanks.

    December 25 (Thursday), 2010 Christmas -- CLOSED ALL DAY
    The holiday season is a special time of year for us all here at the Little A'Le'Inn. It's a time to remember all the new friends and acquaintances we have made through the years. We wish you all a very special season and thank you for taking your time to come and see us here in Rachel.

    For those who passed on this year it is our greatest hope that your families come together and join in celebrating the season, and remain in close contact, as we lost several of our residents and friends this past year.

    Give thanks where you can and often as you never know what tomorrow may bring. May each and every one of you, old and new friends alike, rejoice and feel the heart felt love that we express. May the season bring great blessings and meaning to each persons life as it has in ours. Merry Christmas.

    ET Highway Midnight Marathon
    presented by Calico Racing

    E.T. Full Moon Midnight Marathon - 1/2, 10K, & 51K
    Midnight races! Extraterrestrial Highway; Rachel, NV (2- 2.5 hours from Las Vegas) BUS TRANSPORTATION AVAILABLE FROM THE HOST HOTEL IN LAS VEGAS

    Running along the fringe of the mysterious Area 51, this stretch of highway (375) has an overwhelming number of reported UFO sightings. So much so, that in 1996 the federal government officially named highway 375 the "Extraterrestrial Highway". The ET Highway has become a gathering place for UFO enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. With elevations ranging from roughly 4000-5600 feet, the high desert will enchant you with gorgeous vegetation, surrounding mountains, and stunning vistas. An additional treat is the cooler temperatures. Rachel, NV is generally 15 degrees cooler than the Las Vegas Valley; coupled with a midnight run, temperatures should be in the 60's in August!

    August 31, 2013 (Saturday)
