Reno is not a shrimp cocktail (or a quick food on the run) town in the way that LV is -- and FWIW, I wouldn't trust a 99 cent shrimp cocktail anywhere! But Reno is an all you can eat sushi town extrao ...

I wouldn't doubt for a minute that Marriott knows more about the existing market for hotels in Reno than I do. But, given that the Holiday failed (after a good run) and the Siena failed twice - after ...

Wow! Beer NV (pronounced beer envy) is a beer bar (and full bar) on Foothill off South Virginia in Reno (in the vicinity of WinCo Foods and Nu Yalk Pizza) that has 60 taps with a digital menu board wh ...

After five years of not playing there, GSR has been sending me quite a few free room and gambling offers. Recently I was able to use one for two free nights and $10 in free slot play. While I was ther ...

The Ground Cow sounds about right for the Little Nugget these days, with its awfully awfully large (but over-rated) burger!

BTW, before the Nugget Diner started serving it, wasn't the Awful Awful ...

Reno always seemed like a strange location for the Knit. Perhaps it strayed too far from its roots in NYC.

Anyway, I'll be happy to see another 24 hour joint on Virginia St. I hope they can make it ...

PostForum: Reno Comments   Posted: Feb Sat 13, 2016 10:33 pm   Subject: What is a 4 * hotel in downtown Reno
Calling Siena a 4* would be a serious stretch. I stayed there in the summer after the casino and most of the restaurants closed and 3* was stretching it then. Now, with no open restaurant, it's hard t ...

I stayed at Villagio a few times in 2015. It's the nicest $40 motel room your likely to find anywhere. It's reasonably clean and well appointed, with an LCD TV, a fridge and even USB outlets next to t ...

The difference is that in Reno, some people are walking between casinos carrying lots of cash. The drunk (and sometimes meth freaks) in downtown Reno tend to be loud and sometimes confrontational. It ...

The tough neighborhood part was a reference to the fact that downtown is indeed a bit more rough and tumble than it used to be when there were casinos open up and down the block on either side of the ...
