Does anywhere in the Reno airport sell bottles of alcohol? Normal sized bottles, not those minis?

There's a liquor store just steps away from the Peppermill. Just two crosswalks and you're there.

Probably way cheaper than the airport. Hope this helps.

John is usually there 10:30 am 'til Noon and again 4:30 pm until closing. No, he doesn't work there, he just does most of his shopping there.

I have bought Patron Silver (750ml) in Reno for around $30. It may have been at one of the Ben's Discount Liquor stores. But you should find it for around that price at the above mentioned store.

A few years ago I found a 100% agave tequila in a drug store for about $15. It wasn't as good as Patron but it wasn't too bad either. I believe it was the CVS pharmacy in Shopper's Square Mall.

750 mls is basically 26 oz. Up here, in Canada we had the metric system shoved down our throats back when Pierre Trudeau knew what was best for us. But we still but measure our weight in pounds and say we are buying a gallon of milk when were really getting 4 liters. It's so nice to come across the border and hear the temperature in Fahrenheit and see the speed limit in MPH.
