A city formed by alcoholics in the 1800's who were too lazy to take their wagons over Donner Pass to California. A place to get a marriage/divorce while waiting for your haircut. A mini Las Vegas but with freezing winter temperatures. The casinos are abandoned on weeknights, feel free to get a $30 hotel room for you and your friends, take some shrooms and gamble until dawn no questions asked. They give you free drinks so you gamble more, but just don't be stupid and you can get really drunk for free.
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.
1: Dude, let's go hiking, take an ice-cold dip, go mountain biking, then get smashed and go gambling!
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.
