It’s been a long but good first week in Reno at the Maynard Institute’s multimedia editing fellowship. I’ve learned to do some tweeting on Twitter and create my own Facebook account. Click on the links given if you’d like to follow along. I’m @mjbakereditor on Twitter.
But tonight — actually last night — it was time to have a little fun. So, along with my roommate here, I decided to experience a bit of the after hours fun in downtown Reno on Virginia Street.
Just how big was this little city?
First, we headed to Circus Circus to find out. Too bad, happy hour was over, but there was still plenty to do, if you gamble. I’m not a big gambler. Just don’t ever seem to get the cards. The deck is definitely stacked against me. Nevertheless, plenty of people do and the craps table was certainly hopping.
From one casino to another, but first a walk down Virginia Street. Gambling wasn’t the only thing possible in downtown Reno. It’s nearly one stop shopping for a lot of things. If marriage isn’t commitment enough, feel free to stop next door and get a tattoo.
There are several casinos to check out. We tackled Harrah’s next. The games are the same, especially for a novice. But I will say the dealers were awfully friendly.
It was a break-even sort of night.
Up next, a trip to Tahoe.
