Reno and Squid Hats

…so the (teen) kids didn’t want to see the inside of a casino when we stayed overnight in Reno.  Apparently gambling has gotten a bad rap in our family, which is not a bad thing as far as I’m concerned.  But as parents we insisted they see Circus Circus – “just humor us”, we told them.

And although the “circus” at Circus Circus wasn’t quite as spectacular as we remembered, and we couldn’t imagine eating $16.99 worth of food at the all-u-can-eat buffet (so we ate at one of the other restaurants), we managed to cajole them into the Arcade, and then spent the next few hours trying to cajole them back out.

What we learned:  For 1,250 of those little tickets you win in the games, you can get three brightly colored “squid” hats and ten tootsie rolls.
