Lots of snow in Reno right now. Six feet in Tahoe.

Check Reno Gazette Journal but you hit the paywall after a half dozen clicks:

Also the Siri's Virginia Stree web cam & Whitewater park & Aces at:

Fond memories of this laid back hotel/casino. Loved the $1.99 Spaghetti special in the coffee shop. I swear it was the best Spagetti I've ever had in any restaurant! Wish I had tried GK's steak house. Stayed at the Sundowner once or twice - Always a clean, quiet room. Very pleasant staff in the coffee shop, casino and especially the gift shop.

Thanks to John, you can still visit the Sundowner's Website Here. A few Adobe Flash links are no longer working, but the links at the bottom of the page still work.

This picture was taken in 1999. The Sundowner closed in 2003.

Thanks for bringing this up, BCDave. I built that site many years ago when Flash was the in thing. Google decided Flash isn't secure and is responsible for turning it off. If you're using Google Chrome, you can click on "Settings" or "Not Secure" and turn Flash on.

I got that site job from the personnel manager who bought a bird at the same time I did from the same place. We'd go in and play with the birds at about the same time every day. I didn't know she was affiliated with the casino until she called me and asked me to build the site. We're still friends and she now works at the Sands.

Missing just chillin' with a glass of wine in my favorite Silver Baron Lounge. My next trip to Reno was supposed to be next month. Now it won't be until...

Another thumbs up for the Silver Baron Bar! This pic of me is likely from the late 90's.

Ok I have a uploaded a Silver Baron photo. NOTE: THIS IS NOT ME. It is my friends Jeff & Leann. Both Silver Baron Veterans and about 5 drinks in. What I love about this is that he is drinking these foo-foo drinks and she's doing straight vodka.

Ah, Reno I miss ya.

PS: Thanks John!

Hey Zydeco. SeahawkSiren and I have been using https://postimages.org/ lately and it seems to do the trick. Otherwise email your pics to John board@visitreno.com and he'll put them up for you. (I think that's what you did last time).
