Ribs, Reno, and Relaxing

We went to Reno for the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off this weekend. Once we got there, we wandered the streets with the other thousands of rib lovers to enjoy the weather, people and of course the food. Although there were record high temperatures in the Bay Area, we were lucky enough to have absolutely warm comfortable weather in Reno. We stuffed ourselves with ribs, roasted corn-on-the-cob, funnel cakes, and a jugfull of fresh squeezed lemonade before wandering around and hitting the tables at our favorite casinos. At Circus Circus, Bertrand showed off his mad skills at darts and at getting a rubber chicken in a pot and won me a gigantic stuffed unicorn, a cow, and a pink stuffed dog. On our way home, we stopped in my old hood, Davis, for some yummy Thai food.

I love three day weekends, especially on Sundays when you realize that you get to relax one more day. I spent almost an entire day this weekend sleeping, lounging around, and watching movies and it felt great. Since today was Labor Day, I spent most of my day laboring at the mall shopping my heart out. I feel like I got so much done this weekend but at the same time absolutely nothing. When is my next three day weekend?
