My hometown, Reno, Nevada, was recently put on blast by EscapeHere.com as one of the “10 Worst Cities to Visit in the United States.” Now, I wouldn’t exactly call Reno a travel destination, but there are many fun attractions, activities, and all around merriment to be had in The Biggest Little City. If you get a chance, check out The Biggest Little City Movement, which is a collection of Renoites stories and shared love of our biggest little city. Below is my list of top ten activities and attractions that are a MUST when visiting Reno, or even if you’re a Reno local.
Each year around this time in Reno, Nevada, the Rodeo comes to town. There are cowboys, livestock, a fair, vendors, and of course the most popular seasonal bar, the Jack Daniels Tent. Last year, I was given the opportunity to work as a bartender at the tent, and came back again this year for some more.
I’d like to talk about my favorite part of bar tending: I have complete and total control over people’s sobriety. This is like a superpower.
