I USED to really like this casino. When Barry Phillips took over as casino manager, he drove everything into the ground. The staff is awful, the place stinks like an ashtray, and the machines have lower payouts than ever before. If you're thinking of going here, just turn left and hit up GSR. Baldini's definitely isn't the player's place anymore.

The lead in the e-mail has such sloppy syntax, I'm wondering: who wrote it? The Sand's? has no apostrophe. Go see the sign, dude! "No matter what country your ancestors hailed"-like what, a taxi? that phrase needs a preposition,like, um, "from". the hail U say?

Missed one. Three local bands -- Candyshoppe, A Cloak of Locusts, & Reno We Have A Problem -- are playing at a NYE party at Jub Jub's Thirst Parlor. And unlike most events listed above, the cover for this show's only 3 lousy dollars. Drink specials + rock + non-douchy atmosphere. Show starts at 9pm. Jub Jub's Thirst Parlor 71 S. Wells Avenue, Reno

Typical there are thousands of bikes in town for an entire week in 4 cities and only two bike photos of bikes in the gallery. What about the actual event, concerts, bikes, crowds, not just closeups of people attending. Lets support local activities by enticing people to come out and enjoy what is there not just to get their picture taken.
renolaw commented on Sierra Summer Fest jumps into State Fair void
good events and venue. disappointed the demo derby sat night was what...like 5 muinutes? The national anthem took longer. Only two cometitors and the raffle car? no where near the NSF demo derby with different heats, classes, etc. monster trucks were nice, but loud and dusty. Saw some smart parents using ear plugs for the little ones.
Shakespeare turns mistaken identity and disguise into devious devices in "Twelfth Night." It's not the "kid-friendly" joke fest that many directors imagine it to be, but rather a darkly sexual, sensuous play, likely written just before the sexually-lurid masterwork "Troilus and Cressida." In the central plot, a young woman, Viola, disguises herself as a man, and in that guise soon becomes desired by both a countess and a duke, with whom she has fallen in love with herself. Shakespeare's evil genius here is that whenever Viola acts on her passions as a woman in her scenes of sexual tension with Orsino and Olivia, she is seen by everyone else as doing so as a man. Confusion over sexual identity escalates to the riveting conclusion in which the future happiness of the couples may depend on what compromises and accomodations they are willing to make.

I am a regular bike rider and a "Share the Road" advocate. I disprove of this event. It is obviously a night ride. The law requires a minimum of a red rear reflector and a headlight when operating a bicycle on the road at night. This group had nary a headlight and very few riders had rear reflectors. You cannot get respect on the road if you don't follow the rules of the road. Honor the law first then try to obtain critical mass.

The staff at The Grove helped make my wedding the most memorable day of my life! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff was wonderful and so attentive to me & all of my guests! The food was exceptional, i'm still getting compliments from my family and guests.
