Every year when I can I try to spend my Christmas in Reno. This is where my mom’s side of the family is from, and it is also where I grew up for most of my childhood. Known as the “Biggest Little City in the World”, Reno is an old town that with beautiful land. Because it is shadowed by its younger brother in the state (Las Vegas), the city is pushed under the radar. But what separates Las Vegas from Reno is the snow. While this year it wasn’t as evident, when it does snow, it snows.
I celebrated my 21st birthday in Reno and got to gamble for the first time. My cousin recommended the tables, and I started off the night with paigow poker. I didn’t take too many pictures of the night because…well, you know the deal with a 21st birthday.
