Check out the "RENO!!" on this fake Guy Fieri Restaurant menu

Image

"Popcorn crusted popcorn chicken stuffed inside Guy's Nuthin' Fancy Meatloaf and superbanged in a volcano of Tabasco butter. We pour it into a Lucite heel, smother it with our own special jalapeno sugarbrew, and set it on your lap on a Neon sign. Served drunk and on fire."

That pretty much DOES distill Reno down to a food.

Come to think of it. Guy Fieri is not from Reno, but we should make him an honorary resident anyway

Relatively new and I have not tried them. Our most notable local microbrewery is Great Basin, and especially this shit

I am not a fan of IPAs so I don't care for it though. THey do have other varieties, but this the one I see all over the local area

He, I find the paleontological beer quite charming. But I agree that most IPAs are horrible, save one or two English ones.

We have "Icthyosaur State Park" nearby, which is the origin of it. I'd rather drive all the way out there and look at the fossils than drink an IPA though.
