Reno Weekend

Jake had a golf tournament thing in Reno this weekend that was sponsored by Cal Steam. Cal Steam is awesome. They paid for like 300 people to attend this event. They paid for all the rooms, golf and a nice dinner. I didn't actually partake in any golfing because I don't think it's a good idea for me to be swinging a golf club around, but I did have an excellent time. We went out to Virginia City while we were there and had so much fun. It's only about 30 minutes from Reno, but it's like it's own little world.

We also managed to fit in two Triple D places. The first was the Gold N Silver Inn. The food was really good, but it's kind of in a sketchy area so I would recommend going during the day. Jake had a tri tip sandwich that was featured on the show and I had a sandwich called "heartburn". The name says enough. It was delicious. It was kind of like a Philly cheese steak, but it also had green chilies and horseradish sauce and was on parmesan garlic toast.

On our way home we stopped in Truckee, CA and went to Jax at the Tracks. This place was really good too, but try to stay away on a Sunday morning. It was so busy! Definitely worth the wait though. We both had sandwiches that were featured on the show. One was a bbq tri tip and the other was a crab cake sandwich with mango relish.

I'm so happy to know that you got over to Virginia City. I LOVE that place! It was fun 30 years ago, and I'll bet it hasn't lost a bit of its charm.

I especially enjoyed the photos of you two, and those fire trucks...SWEET!
