I wish I was there too! The weather is miersable here!
You need to make a visit to Reno during their annual Hot August Nights festival - it is usually the first week in August - complete with a sock hop and a concert by the Beach Boys!http://www.hotaugustnights.net/
Oooh, Reno sounds like a good idea. I love the Beach Boys too! I have a high school friend who lives in Sparks and keeps asking me to come out. One of these days I'm going to do it!
