A good time at Boomtown and Lunch in Sparks today

We left home yesterday about 1000 and headed for Walmart and both US Bank and Bank of America so i could finish what I needed to do there..then we went to Carson City and had lunch at our favorite Chinese Restaurant.  Not as good as Winnemucca, but a heck of alot closer.  Then we drove to Reno and visited Cabela's..Ken actually found a sheath for the knife that a friend of Jim's (Ken's stepdad)  had made Jim gave it to Ken many years ago.  There was a sheath with it, but it disintegrated so Ken's been on the lookout and yesterday he found one. Made by Smith and Wesson and a knife came with it, but the sheath fits.

After that we checked in at Boomtown, for our $14.99 room.  About 1900 or so we headed downstairs to go have a drink before dinner...we had a coupon for a $3.99 buffet..well, the band (2 people) was just too darn good so we had a few drinks and enjoyed the music....at 2101...we were at the buffet and they had closed at 2100...uhhhhhh....so we went to their restaurant, had the steak dinner and Ken had the burger and fries..little more than our $3.99 dinner..oh well...live and learn to watch the clock! 

Got up this am and took our time getting ready as we were headed to Sam's Club and Winco in Reno...finished and headed for High Sierra Brewing Company in Sparks.  

OMG India Pale Ale and my Chardonnay....

Ken's mushroom swiss burger and fries...1/2 pound...

Sierra Brown Ale..

Yummm...southwestern wrap...

We were seated at High Sierra and I looked above the booth at the picture..and said...I think that's where we got married..Sunset Wedding Chapel in Carson City...came home and looked it up and sure enough.."just behind the courthouse" is how it's remembered...amazing...

Blurry..but this is it!
