We will be in Reno the in early Feb. and would like to go to a fun night club On Sat, Sun, and or Monday. We are in our 30's so don't want the group to be too young, but not too old either. We wont have a car, but are willing to cab it not too far. We heard there was a fun Gay bar, but we are all straight and would like to stay on that route. Thanks for any help.

I've spent time in many places in Reno. Among them:
- Hideout Lounge (kind of a biker bar, but has good live music depending on the night)

Travel Tips for Reno

Walk along the Truckee River...

by scargo

Walk along the Truckee River and enjoy the parks. Visit the nearby mountains. The nearness of Mt. Rose for a day of low pressure/low glitz skiing. Only 30-40 minutes and you can be skiing or hiking, etc. Lake Tahoe is just a little farther...

Aside from the obvious casino...

by barbie7

Aside from the obvious casino hopping- the National Automobile Museum is great, with a vast collection and interesting settings - take a drive to Virginia City to see this old-fashioned mining town - the National Bowling bowling really this big?!

We did not have time to visit the Tahoe area, hopefully in the future. I thought the best thing about Reno is the friendly suburban atmosphere, with the addition of beautiful mountain backdrop, and plenty of big-city amenities.

Can You Win at Blackjack?

by SteveOSF

Blackjack can be beaten by skilled card counters. Counting cards requires hours of practice to develop one's skills. Unfortunately the game of blackjack has deteriorated over the years to a point where many of the games offered in casinos are so unfavorable that they can not be beaten by the even best players. Winning at blackjack involves knowing the basic strategy for when to hit, stand, double, split pairs, and how to handle all the various options. It also takes an ability to use one or more numerical systems to track whether the next hand dealt favors the player or the house. Also, one must know how to alter the playing strategy to account for the composition of remaining cards. In addition, one must have a bankroll large enough to weather normal expected fluctuations.

One must be able to use these techniques in a casino environment without being distracted and most importantly without being kicked out. The casinos are very paranoid about card counters. But their fears are for the most part unwarranted. Only an extremely small fraction of blackjack players have the skill, bankroll, and mental discipline to win a worthwhile sum of money at the game. For the few who have mastered what it takes to win at blackjack, they must also learn how to play without being detected. Few casino personnel actually know how to use a winning blackjack system, but they do have certain things they look for to aid them in catching card counters. Card counting is perfectly LEGAL, but in Nevada the casinos are allowed to kick anyone out who they suspect can win. Many people are kicked out by mistake due to casinos' over paranoia of winners. There are still current reports of people being "back-roomed" by casinos and subjected to being held against their will and interrogated, being extensively and invasively searched, and even being beaten. If police are called in to such situations, they will not typically act against the over zealous casino employees as gaming revenue is too important to the politicos who run the state.

Train Tracks

by SteveOSF

In recent years, the tracks of a major railway line that crosses Virginia Street in the heart of downtown have been submerged below the street level. Some of the freight trains that use this line contain about a hundred cars. Before these tracks were lowered, it could take a while for these long trains to pass. Traffic would be stopped and pedestrians halted while everyone waited for these trains to go by.

Once I saw a train stop right in the middle of downtown blocking intersections for a stretch of several blocks. People started climbing over the train between the cars in order to pass. The railroad had to place someone between each car before the train could proceed so as not to accidently injure or even kill someone trying to get across the train. It took quite a while for them to get enough people into position so that they could start the train rolling again.

Now the railroad crossing is no longer at street level. There are no more delays. With no tracks to cross, walking in downtown Reno has become more pleasant.

Old Reno Arch

by SteveOSF

The Reno "Biggest Little City in the World" Arch on Virginia Street is not the original one. The Reno arch was replaced years ago with the more modern arch that spans Virginia Street today. However, the old arch is still around. It was relocated to South Lake Street in front of the Sienna Hotel and Casino. This historic arch stands as a remembrance of another era for Reno.
