Reno Trip

October 29-31, 2009

I had some vacation time to burn, so I headed up to Reno Thursday morning. It turns out this is out of season, so hotel rates are very reasonable. I got a luxury room at the Eldorado for ~$100. Not bad.

Thursday night went pretty good at the tables. I'm very hesitant to go down there tonight, because it would be nice to actually come out ahead. Anyways, I will go down there anyways.

This morning I devoured a heart-attack special at the Eldorado buffet. I had a massage appointment at 11am, so I went to the Spa and sat in the sauna for a while, hoping that the sensation of never wanting to eat anything again would go away. The masseuse, Barbara, really went to town on all my tension points with herd pointy elbows. It was pretty painful, but I guess, that's what you get when you order a deep tissue massage, and tell her to go at with everything she got.

After the 3 hour spa session it was time for nap. I woke up in time for dinner. The sun was setting, so I went for walk down Virginia Street, and got my picture captured on the Siena webcam. They had a $5.95 steak dinner special, which was just too good to pass up.
