    While I don't disagree with the wisdom of your fireplace/beer plan, at the same time it would probably be good preparation for ski season to be battered by the elements in your ski gear. Or...

    Am I really the only one going to the movie at Moment tonight? As a poor grad student I really appreciate the free screenings and $1 beer, gives me a reason to stop grading exams and think about the...
  3. That's Fine @ Moment

    Looks like there's another free movie at the Moment factory. From the Moment facebook page:



    I'm driving from D/T Reno if anyone needs a ride.

    Probably. Free beer is moderately less appealing when I have to drive home. Does the river bike path go all the way there from downtown? :)

    I teach Monday and Tuesday, but every other day is fair game. I'm planning to take the free casino-squaw bus occasionally... seems like a reasonable deal if you're willing to be up there all day.

    I know, I know. In my defense I was in a relationship for those two years that involved me commuting from Davis to Reno and sleeping in my office/car on this end, so I didn't really "live" in Reno. ...

    Moment Factory Ski Movie Evening

    Is happening right now. Any Reno mags need to head down ASAP. $1 draft microbrews, dj, and skiing projected on the side of the building, plus factory tours. Can't really go wrong.

    Coffee -- The Hub. Best coffee in Reno, period. Yes, it is in a converted garage and there's only street parking.
