Our shop is in an intersting city
« on: January 12, 2018, 04:28:12 PM »
Typical day/night yesterday - The orthopedic doctor for a world cup soccer team was in as he always is on his to and from the airport, one of our out of state high roller gamblers who has a private jet/pilot sent his assistant in a limo to pick up pizza for him - he comes once a month for out pizza and to gamble.  Last night I told his assistant to say I hope he wins a million. He said he was almost there when he left to pick up the pizza.  He is comp'd everything from the casino.  An 11 year old from SF told his parents he wanted to come to our shop for his birthday.   A PGA caddy that lives here from NJ was in for lunch.  Then a bike race team competing in the world championships here this week came in.  Very interesting customers we have :)

That is pretty cool, Walter. Does Reno have many of those uncle-niece conventions like Vegas does?  :-D

I find it easier to imagine a diet of nothing but ice cream than one without ice cream

Not sure what that means but they have lots of conventions here.  Being rated the #46 restaurant in the country on Yelp brings in tons of business every week with travelers.

It is a euphimism for a large number of older gentlemen who can publicly be seen traveling with, attending shows (entertainment) with, dining out with, etc., an unusually large number of well dressed and well built younger women for whom the notion of sexual congress with older gentlemen prone to treating her well is not entirely foreign.  ;D

thanks for the explanation.  We don't get that sort of stuff in our shop thankfully :)

Just to be clear, I was asking about Reno ‘an interesting city’ vs Vegas. I did not mean anything personal or suggestive about your shop. I see now, though, you closed with ‘very interesting customers we have.’ The customers you described are very interesting. I did not mean to irmply otherwise.


My parents lived in Vegas 6 months a year for several years. I have been there a couple dozen times. You see what you see there and 24/7 at that

We have been here 2 years and if you go downtown where the casinos are I imagine you will see that kind of stuff as prostitution is legal and like any downtown that is fairly big in a mild weather climate so to speak there is a homeless problem.  Reno is nothing like Vegas today in the sense of Disney/luxury resort world like vibe.  It is small and low key in comparison.  We have only been in 1 casino so far and the smoking will keep us from going back so I am not up on that scene.  Once you leave downtown it becomes a very normal like city and our shop is in a very family friendly neighborhood.   Our hours of operation do confuse people though as this is also a 24/7 city.  Walter
