Reno Heats Up with Hot August Nights

14 August 2003
I pulled into the Boomtown Hotel and Casino Reno's RV Park on Wednesday morning. The place was already buzzing with RVs and classic cars... quite a mix.

Okay, I admit it, I've been trying daily to beat a chicken playing Tic Tac Toe... it doesn't seem that it should be hard to do, beat a bird with a pea brain at a game like that... but the chicken has beat me... Some people have beat the bird, and they got $500 for the win. ... (read more)

Thunder Not So Loud?

29 June 2003
Thunder Valley, the Station Casinos/Auburn Rancheria casino that opened on the 9th of June in Lincoln, California (just over the mountain from Reno) isn't having a very visible impact on Reno, and I think maybe there are a couple of issues that will keep things that way. ... (read more)

Off the Chest

22 June 2003
I think it is time to put the heart back on the sleeve and express myself a little clearer and a little better about the purpose of and reasons for the Reno Gaming Guide because I think somewhere along the line a little of the purpose has been lost, at least on the end of the prime receivers of the benefits of the website... ...
