Reno is for Luvas

My boyfriend and I celebrated our 6 month anniversary this past Saturday (hence my absence from blog land, boy was I getting the shakes) in the hottest city east of Sacramento...Reno! We had to go somewhere close because Sunday was father's day and we had to return so yeah, after ruling out crunk camping in Napa (my genius idea) we decided on Reno.

As we exited the freeway I began to chuckle and tell Nacho about all the scenes from Sister Act that were filmed in the casinos and how the nuns flew in a helicopter they couldn't afford. I was cracking up just thinking about it. 6 months and he still loves me. Sometimes I cant believe it.

After our pre-funk of grey goose, cranberry, and club soda in the room as we watched episodes of Locked Up Raw (now I know how to make alcohol if Im ever in prison) we went to play the games which lead to a "mono challenge" who could get the most stuffed animal prizes.


Me and my loot in my Jeffrey Campbell shoes I didnt even know were Jeffrey Campbell and I've had them for 2 years! I just knew they were fly and comfortable. Never looked closely at the label.

Snacho losing! bahahaha. He thought he was good at those. I totally showed him who is boss today at Denny's when I won a teddy bear on my first try.


Normal people our age continued drinking in the bars. We had a light midnight snack in a place Nacho called the "Denny's of the casinos" right alongside the bowling team from Texas A&M. Missed my MJ :( I had a light bowl of Pho and he had a petite platter of pancakes, sausage, hashbrowns and eggs. 


We had to digest our food before we became horizontal for the night. So we went outside to take a picture. A nice riff raff vagabundo offered to take a pic for us but Nacho yelled at me in Spanish that he was going to charge me. He had the cutest dalmatian. 


Good Morning Reno! The view from our hotel room.

Now you know I didnt leave Reno without doing some thrifting. Who do you take me for? This post was getting long so stay tuned to part II where we visit Reno's finest vintage store. All is fair in love and blogs,

  11. Reno is for lovahs! FUN! I've never been to Reno since Las Vegas is closer but Reno seems so much cooler. Johnny Cash and Reno 911 might have something to do with that.

    Also, I have no idea why alcohol and tv is so much better in hotel rooms. And somebody needs to write a prison cook book*

    *Me (Not that I've been to prison. I just know a lot of hilarious jailbirds who've shared recipes with me, like menudo made out of Cornuts, chicarones, and tapatio packets.)

  12. Jealous! It is so hot out there! Haha I need to learn your recipe and technique to make alcohol...

    All the best, Angel
