Ahh...Boston, you're my home.
I've been meaning to get a pic of the Reno skyline from the landing in my apartment building. It ain't got nothin' on Boston, though, I'm sure.
(You must have been to Reno at some point.)
Oh yeah. Had friends who lived there, went to a wedding. And then my mom used to take me to these conferences of hers when I was in high school...
There is nothing to do in Reno if you are under 21. Except go to the movies. I think that may be why I am so addicted.
Actually, there's plenty for kids to do
Reno-Sparks is consistently ranked one of the best places to raise a family. That was one of the big reasons we decided to live here.
I just remember my sister and I walking forever from the MGM Grand when I was 17 and she was 12. Unless we wanted to play video games, which we didn't, there wasn't a thing to do apart from go to the shopping mall (which we'd done to death) or movie theatre in the hotel (which we'd already seen all the movies they had) since we were too young to go into the Casino.
Maybe it's different now; that was over 20 years ago, after all.

That could be Montreal's fault
Montreal has the highest per-capita film attendance in the world.
And Cinema V, in those days, ruled!
Then again, I may have coughed around you in rez and gave you my bug.
You do exhibit some strange symptoms like sitting in the front...
Oh, you've definitely been an influence...this was before I met you though. We stayed in the MGM Grand, which had a kickass movie theatre in the basement; they only showed classics. I saw It Happened One Night and was hooked for life. They also had The Mouse That Roared...that got me hooked on the old movies.
Then a few years later, I met this film student in Canada who completely sealed the deal for me...
(and I have the sound of bird inside!)
Love that dirty water, huh?
