Good News, Bad News

We walked down to the Silver Legacy again this morning for breakfast. Reno's main street is cordoned off for "Tailgate Parties" before "The Big Game" (they can't say "Super Bowl" without paying the license fees). Because the buffet has no keno runners, I bought a ticket before going in to eat. On one of the six $1 games I played, I caught 5 of 7 numbers, which paid $20 and thus paid for one of our two meals, which cheered me up a little after last night's blackjack debacle.

Unfortunately, Lisa started feeling ill on the way back to the hotel. Whether we'll actually get out and get anything done today is an open question.
