w/my work parter-in-crime.
Got the chance to attend the SuperACAC Conference [WACAC, PNACAC & RMACAC: essentially the Western United States Association of College Admission Counselors] in Reno.
Reno is.....well....an interesting 'wanna-be-like-Vegas-but-got-stuck-in-70's-kitsche' town:
|Mr. Cowboy at The Nugget where our conference was held.|
Property smelled of 1970's smoke &
someone actually reported bed bugs.
We were loyal to our Marriott roots & couldn't have been happier.
|Strike baby! A 78-lane bowling heaven.|
|An honest-to-goodness ad I found on when looking for a little BINGO fun.|
|Unfortunately -- Didn't get a chance to eat here.....|
|But we did eat here: The Chocolate Bar. Best food we had in Reno.|
|Chocolate Bar fondue. So wonderful!|
Besides the conference & downtown exploration we toured University of Nevada-Reno.
Pretty impressive. Full of traditions.

|UNR holds graduation on this lawn. Can you just see the caps flying? LOVE it.|
We also had a quick trip to Lake Tahoe to see the bright blue water:
We had a great time. Learned a lot of great tips & tricks in our trade.
Would I recommend Reno excitement? If you love stadium bowling, 70's motel kitsche....Go for it! Just remember to take your Mom to bingo.
