So aside from the TV show about it, wtf is there to do down there aside from get taterd and go to brothels? Any cool ####? Brother decided we should go there for his 21st, so him, 3 of his friends, maybe my Dad, and I are going down there friday morning.

Curious if anyone had been/knew any cool stuff to do besides get lit, and if not, where good places to get lit are...........

Take a drive up to Lake Tahoe and go through the Ponderosa Ranch tourist trap. :D

As far as where to go to drink/gamble, "The Biggest Little City In The World" is nice because everything is in a relatively small area.

Unlike Vegas.

One of my favorite T-shirts I ever bought was from Paul Revere's in Reno.

It said............. "Love All - Serve Who We Want." LOL

Ummm, you're going down there for your little brothers 21st what else would you be doing:poke::D

I went down there with about 10 buddies twice. We uh got tater'd and ran wildLOL Only go out at night, cuz reno is ugly in the day time:(
On a more serious note. If anything I do recommend going to Tahoe since you will be that close. They have a gondola you can ride to the top of a hill and IIRC there is a bar at the top, if thats your kind of thing, plus Tahoe is kinda a touristy town too.

Grand Sierra is the best hotel/casino in Reno. There are bumper cars!!! Gambling and getting lit are about it though. Dunno when you're going but Octane Fest in Fallon is always a good time. There is a pull on the 11th of June if you're around that weekend. Here is some info...

Octane Fest

Reno's cool, especially when we live just a few hours from there. Wave on your way through! (Use all your fingers)

Reno has shows from time to time so you might check to see if there is something going on this weekend. For bar-hopping the downtown area is nice because you can walk to 10+ casinos and bars within a short distance. I don't remember the name of the shop but there is a big taxidermy place over by the airport that has a huge showroom with life-size mounts of animals from all over the world. Of course, there are plenty of "gentleman's clubs" up and down Virginia avenue. A trip to Tahoe (Stateline) is worth the drive, IMO.

In town, I like the Silver Legacy. I also like the Atlantis on the south end of town although it's pretty much all by itself. Cheap food at Circus Circus.

Don't drive all the way into Susanville, there is a cut-off road that is well marked about 15 miles this side of Susanville. Cops won't bat an eye at you unless your doing much over 70 through the desert. Respect the speed limits in the small towns. That's about all the random thoughts I have for now.

go to Tahoe, Reno is a $hit hole no offense to any Reno citizens
Tahoe has much nicer restaurants,hotels,casinos & attractions.
Some good restaurants in Tahoe City are Rosie's which is a good breakfast / lunch place, Jake's is good for dinner, also their is a good mexican place I forget the name though. Also their are a few bars in town.

South Lake Tahoe is the place to be if you want to party. They have night clubs, Casinos & bars

I lived in Reno for 6 years, its not too bad. The casinos in downtown reno arent bad. The Eldorado has a few pretty cool bars. My favorite is brew brothers, they have the absolute best beer I have ever tasted in my life. Its called big dog IPA, if you like ales you have got to try it. If you want some hole in the wall bars downtown sparks is the place to go. A pretty cool irish pub called o'skis is down there. The grans sierra has a pretty cool country bar and dance joint in it. They also have some snooty club too that they wouldnt let me in because I had my cowboy boots on, turds. The best burger in Reno is a tiny joint called Awful-awful. It stands for awful big and awful good. They are awesome. It is right under under the arch in the back of the little nugget in downtown reno. Tahoe is cool, Ive never been up there to party so I dont know much about it, but the ski resorts are second to none. The top resorts are Heavenly, Squaw Valley. Also there are plenty of "gentlemans clubs" in reno, but if you want a little more action there are a few of them places east of carson city on highway 50. Carson is about 30 miles south of reno on 395. The famous bunny ranch is out there too. If you need any more info shoot me a pm.

Details.....LOL
Roger.

We got to Reno at about 2:30am Friday(all of the non-drivers had "Road Sodas" the whole way down), checked into the first Hotel we came to (Circus Circus), and stayed up till about 5. Passed out till 8, and then got up again and started back in. I sobered up again about lunch cuz we were hiking all over the ####ing place trying to plan our attack, had lunch at Amendment 21 (awesome fish tacos), went back to the Casino, got drunk again. Tried to get brother married, couldn't find a willing partner....

I was actually back even minus the 50-75 bucks I spent on lunch and drinks and stuff that evening, went to a bar, ran into a cute bowler from Chicago, talked to her for a while, she spilt her Corona on me, I bought her another shot. She had to bowl in an hour, she was trashed.

Walked to the strip club, sobered up from the walk, bought too many strippers too many 11 dollar shots.

started drinking again, gambled some more, passed out around 3. Woke up, spent the next 3-4 hours getting harassed by Casino Security, one Floor Boss, and a bycicle cop. (I guess I don't look 21, and I was half teetered and half an #######), finally got my licensce approved, got stamped "21", and proceeded to get #######D by some dealer bitch at BlackJack (seriously, how many 21's can you get in 10 minutes?).

Decided no more gambling, started bying drinks every time I'd pass a bar. Friends came back and told me "cute bowler girl" was wondering where I was, got pissed cuz I couldn't find her, drank more...Tried to get a picture with Miss Nevada? Couldn't find her again either........

My friends tried to get thrown out of Harrahs, almost got in a fight. Bought two bottles at a store so we wouldn't pay 8-10 bucks for shots anymore. Drank most of that. Lil bro offered to pay twice a girls weight in money if our friend would bang a fat girl, he punked out.

Realized that only Jersey Shore looking dudes with spiky hair and fake tans, Affliction T-Shirts, and American Eagle pants get the girls there. No idea what time I went to bed. Got up at 730, packed our ####, and GTFO.



Its fun I spose, next time I'm taking WAY more money. It is kinda sketchy there, but I'm not a really fancy guy, so I didn't mind, in fact, I kinda hate ritzy. Circus Circus is a #### hole, but Silver Legacy and Eldarado were pretty nice, as was Harrahs.

LOL We went to Reno in September of last year and spent way to much money in one night. Its fun, but definitely hurts the pocketbook!

Sounds like fun to me. You didn't take a camera did you? No pics, it didn't happen, safer for everyoneLOL

Oh and we did the same thing on the ride down, and got there around the same time 2:30-3:00 and stayed up til the sun went down the next night, took a power nap and hit it again for awhile, hit the hay that night and pointed the truck north early in the morning and GTFO!
