If you’re in Reno: Check out the Gemini Duo at the Pollo Lounge, the lady is amazing!

Also in Reno is the Midtown Wine Bar which had live music and was interesting.

If you’re in Las Vegas Fremont Street is quite the spectacle. -You can even go zip lining over it if you’re into that…

Also in Vegas is Frankie’s Tiki Room which is a themed bar that was fun.

The drive from Reno to Vegas was pretty awesome.


The Las Vegas strip, unless you’re really into touristy things or gambling… it wasn’t what I was expecting at all.

The Neon Museum might be cool, but I didn’t make it and you can just peek through the gate to see the signs…

Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil – too spectacle-y for me. I like shows with more of a story or would’ve liked more Cirque-y things…

Are there any other number related things or best’s or whatnot you’d like to know? Leave me a comment below!
