Why do we keep going back to Reno for long weekends? Well, for one, it’s not Las Vegas. We pretty much just stay at the Peppermill Resort and hang out there. This last time around, we got a regular room because the spa suite that we first had was plagued by the ice machine just outside our door and a guy who tried to drunkenly break into our room at 3 in the morning the first night I was there. So, we changed rooms – yes, there was no hot tub in the suite, but at least it was quiet. And it was pretty! It reminded me of my Uncle Danny’s condo, which used to be all decked out with fancy-pants French antiques.
Anyway, our stay was fun, and we actually came out ahead this time. I had pretty good luck on the slot machines, but not as good as Chris, who hit a $300 jackpot on “Giant’s Gold”. My new favorite game is “Great Owl”, but I still managed to win a little on “Siberian Storm” as well. Dang, I kind of like slots. I guess I’m one of those people now (and by those people, I mean suckers).
