Roll the Dice

This past weekend, I travelled to Reno, Nevada: The Biggest Little City in the World!
Some friends and I decided to escape Sacramento and make the 2 hour drive over into Nevada to have some fun in Reno. Since I had never been to Reno, I was pretty excited to see it. I've been to Las Vegas a few times so this wasn't my first time to a gambling town. We arrived and set up camp at Circus Circus Hotel and Casino.
There was a championship bowling tournament going on in Reno and the home base was Circus Circus! Everywhere we went bowling pins and balls were the theme! I'm also a sucker for a souvenir cup/glass so of course I had to get this...
We also hit up a giant buffet inside the Silver Legacy Casino. The buffet had the best desserts because of that I got two!
This was the best chocolate and they had an amazing chocolate moose as well. If you ever get to Reno, hit up the silver legacy buffet because it was totally worth the money. When I'm traveling I usually find at least one thing to take an inappropriate photo with...
Later that night we went over to the Peppermill Hotel and Casino. The Peppermill is by far the nicest hotel that I saw there. If I go to Reno again I will probably stay there. The Peppermill is also home to Edge which is a very upscale hang out spot. 
See those shoes I'm wearing? I love them. They are black and gold with accents. I was so excited to wear them. I don't know if it's because I had been walking around all day or what but my feet must have got a little swollen. By the end of the night they had completely broken open the skin on my ankle. It wasn't pretty!

To treat myself from the pain, we ate again but over in the El Dorado Hotel and Casino. It was so much food that there was no way I could finish it. 
Sadly, all trips must come to an end and it was time to head back to Sacramento. The trip to Reno was great and if you ever get the chance to go I highly suggest going. It's definitely not Vegas but it's a fun time in Nevada.

Looks like so much fun! I've never been to Reno but I bet it'd be an awesome experience.

dang, I can't believe you walked around in those high heels all day! They're cute, but they look high. I've never been to Reno, but this post makes me want to find some good food.

It looks like so much fun!

I totally hear your shoe woes. I bought a new pair of mary janes a few months ago, and they gave me such horrific blisters that I still haven't been able to break them in properly.

How cool! Sounds like you had a great time minus the after effects of the shoes.

Those shoes...awesomeness! Uncomfortable...but awesomeness. Love the pic with Elvis. You look TINY, friend! And loving you hair! Fun to get away. :)
