Places to Stay:
A few people have asked if there are places to stay close to the events center.  The Events Center has RV spaces available (see the bottom of the show application page) and  there are several motels close by and the casinos are close too. lists some close by ones. You can narrow the search in the location box:
   A friend of mine stays at the SandsRegency Hotel Casino when he visits. They usually have some good deals going. I did a quick check and found their deals page:  
Once he visited the first time they keep sending him free nights tickets.    
   Motel 6 is about a block away:  
   Days Inn is just a little further:
   Americas Best Travel Inn is right at the freeway exit too:
There is a 24 hour Denny's and a Carrows restaurant very close. (walking dist. from motels, right at the freeway exit)
Let's make this a fun forum to keep interest and excitement up for the shows!

The Reno Arch
The Biggest Little City in the World

The original Reno Arch, built in 1926, didn't say "The Biggest Little City in the World." It wasn't erected to add glitz to a downtown casino district (casino gambling didn't become legal in Nevada until 1931), or even as a sign intended to symbolize Reno's city pride. So what's with this famous symbol? 

It was inspired by the automobile and, more specifically, the completion of America's first coast-to-coast motor routes, The Lincoln Highway and The Victory Highway*. The first iteration of the arch, planted at Virginia Street and Commercial Row, and dedicated by a cadre of Nevada and California politicians on October 23, 1926, promoted the Nevada Transcontinental Highways Exposition (held in Reno from June 25 to August 1, 1927).


Subsequent incarnations of the arch are at the same Virginia Street location. The transcontinental highways being important to commerce in both Nevada and California, the dedication was attended by both governors, poohbahs from the San Francisco Shriners, marching bands, and lots of ordinary citizens. 


It didn't take long for some folks to tire of the new slogan and it was removed. That didn't sit well with other folks, who apparently had more influence. After this little dustup, the slogan was put back. In addition, neon, the new lighting miracle, was added to make the arch a blazing welcome to Reno. Another modification was the removal of the torches. By around 1935, the Reno Arch was configured as it would be until 1963. By then, Caddies and Corvettes had replaced Model Ts, necessitating an arch upgrade to reflect the new transportation realities.

The '35 to '63 arch didn't get ditched when it was replaced. It was first moved to the exposition site, Idlewild Park, then to Paradise Park. It was understandably getting a bit rickety after almost 40 years, so into storage it went until once again called into service. Moviemakers placed it over E. 4th Street as a prop in the 1994 film Cobb. In 1995, it migrated once again, to what should prove its final resting place. Drive down Lake Street, between the National Automobile Museum and the Siena Hotel Casino, and you will pass under the steel girders of the original Reno Arch.

This next Reno Arch was a major transformation. Out with the steel framework, in with glowing plastic and a sparkling rotating star. This arch was called by some the "mod arch" or "hippie arch." Look around the picture and you'll see that it goes with the signage that was then in vogue on Virginia Street.

By 1987, the hippies were gone and so was the contemporary look of the mod arch. This time, though, the replaced arch didn't bounce around town looking for a landing place. It was donated to the northern California town of Willits. In this incarnation, it straddles US 101 and welcomes visitors to Mendocino County and the towering coast redwoods. 

Meanwhile, local outfit Young Electric Sign Company built the Reno Arch still standing today. It remains to be seen how long it will last considering the rapid pace of change sweeping through Reno's core. Stay tuned for the next edition, coming who-knows-when to the same location.

 New Years Eve 
One Liners 

 A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.

My new year's resolution is to be more optimistic by keeping my cup half-full with either rum, vodka, or whiskey.

New Years Eve is the only acceptable time to wear body glitter without being mistaken for a stripper.


My New Years resolution is 1080p

I'm getting drunk just thinking about tomorrow night.

My New Year's resolution is to stop hanging out with people who ask me about my New Year's resolutions.

I have only one resolution. To rediscover the difference between wants and needs. May I have all I need and want all I have. Happy New Year!

If 2014 was a person, I'd sue him for pain and suffering and lost wages.

This New Year's I resolve to be less awesome since that is really the only thing I do in excess.

I wanna kiss you on December 31st from 11:59 pm to 12:01 am, so I can have an amazing ending to 2014 and a beautiful beginning into 2015.

Many things can be preserved in alcohol this New Years Eve. DIGNITY is not one of them.

New Year's is just a holiday created by calendar companies who don't want you reusing last year's calendar.


On New Year's Eve, Marilyn stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready. At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living. Well, it was kind of embarrassing. As the clock struck, the bartender was almost crushed to death.


Auld Lang Syne Lyrics by Robert Burns (1788)
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And auld lang syne?

Chorus: For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pu'd the gowans fine,
But we've wander'd mony a weary fit
Sin auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl't in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.

And there's a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o' thine,
And we'll tak a right guid willie-waught
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye'll be your pint' stowp,
And surely I'll be mine,
And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne!


Should old acquaintances be forgotten,
And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintances be forgotten,
And days of long ago !

Chorus: For old long ago, my dear
For old long ago,
We will take a cup of kindness yet
For old long ago.

We two have run about the hillsides
And pulled the daisies fine,
But we have wandered many a weary foot
For old long ago.

We two have paddled (waded) in the stream
From noon until dinner time,
But seas between us broad have roared
Since old long ago.

And there is a hand, my trusty friend,
And give us a hand of yours,
And we will take a goodwill draught (of ale)
For old long ago!

And surely you will pay for your pint,
And surely I will pay for mine!
And we will take a cup of kindness yet
For old long ago!
