Default Things to do in Reno!?

Hey guys/gals, last year I asked what to do in Austin TX, and had some great recommendations.

This year it's Reno, and I am leaving Thursday, and will be back the following Thursday. My Aunt lives there, so the first two days will be at Lake Tahoe, then my convention starts.

I am staying at John Ascuaga's Nugget Casino so I am sure I will find some stuff to do there, but are there any other places worth venturing too??

Thanks in Advance!!

It's not too far over to San Francisco and Napa Valley. Those two places were more fun than I thought they would be.

Gamble your ass off but make sure you stay away from slow horses and fast women.

Pyramid lake isn't too far. That lake had some big trout in 30 years ago. The sierra nevada and Lake Tahoe is just across the border.

Any other ideas?

Do you bowl? The USBC National tournament is going on at the bowling stadium. There is a lot of good BBQ joints in the area. The locals ride mountain bikes.
