The people are super nice. You can go up to anyone and just start talking. Before you know it, you'll be drinking and partying like you've never done before. By the time the sun is coming up and everyone's droppin like flies, you've made some brilliant new friends.
You can do everything there: see good shows, winter sports, summer water sports at Tahoe, kayaking down the Tuckee River straight through downtown, Artown all month every July, the Reno Burners Fire Spinning Group, hiking, biking, the Beer Crawl...
The food is amazing, from the hoity-toity Sunday brunch at Sterling's Restaurant in the Silver Legacy to gravy and fries available 24 hours at the Awful Awful Burger inside the Little Nugget.
It's small enough to make friends like family and big enough for whatever you can think to want.
It's Sin City, with a more convenient location for outdoorsmen, nature-lovers, skiers, fishermen...
There are also 2 cops for every civilian, they were too stupid for college so they pick on teenagers and college students who can barely pay their rent to fill their quota.
On the contrary, Reno is just a few miles away from breathtaking, crystal-clear Lake Tahoe, and some of the biggest and best ski resorts in the United States, huge mountains, also home of some very high quality marijuana.
Also very close to Black Rock Desert, home of Burning Man. It used to be a festival dedicated to art, radical expression, and free-thinkers, but now it's a week-long rave that costs $400 featuring fat middle-aged DJs rolling balls, probably born and raised in Reno.
2: Sounds like Reno! Let's drive the speed limit until a cop rides our ass just to pull us over when we speed up.
