Reno, Part 2

It wouldn’t be quite accurate to say that I didn’t go anywhere today – but I didn’t drive anywhere today. My hosts were kind enough to show me some of the sights around Reno. There’s too much there to see in a day, but we got to a few things.

First, there was nearby Lake Tahoe, which involved a brief jaunt back into California.

A small part of this enormous lake.


Then it was back to Reno for a visit to the National Automobile Museum, where we saw an amazing collection of classic cars.

And classic hood ornaments.


And what visit including me would be complete without a brewpub? My friend and I visited Silver Peak Brewery for dinner, where, since I wasn’t driving, I sampled all 11 of their beers – and 10 of them were exceptionally tasty examples of their various styles (and the 11th wasn’t that bad).

A beer sampler: one of the most beautiful sights on the planet.


And so I got through Reno without visiting even one casino, nudie bar, or adult bookstore.

Tomorrow: Vegas, baby.


About Waltz

An international man of mystery, Waltz is a puzzle wrapped in an enigma. Kind of a puzzle burrito, actually. With conundrum cheese and secret sauce. And a side of Riddle Rice.
