Reno Street Food and Wild Island Adventure Park

We didn't feel like cooking Friday night so we went to the Reno Street Food at Idlewild Park to find something to eat. Appetizing aromas from the food trucks and trailers filled the evening air as we approached the venue.  This gathering is a weekly event from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. through the summer.
We grabbed a glass of beer from local brewer, Great Basin Brewery, before browsing the vendors to see what they had to offer.  Of course I couldn't resist the spicy hot link sausage at Brothers Barbecue. John had a really good gyro from Red Truck and when we were done with our food, we were still hungry so we also got some pork sticks from Full Belly Deli.  Dry rubbed, fried, and drizzled with sweet and hot sauce -- it was fall-off-the-bone tender goodness!  While we sat and ate, a puppeteer entertained the crowd who had gathered around him.  It was a nice evening.

Today was a special surprise for John from which he had been in suspense for two whole days.  I had purchased a couple of tickets for miniature golf at the Wild Island Family Adventure Park in Sparks, NV.  It turned out that John had a friend he's known since he lived in Reno, who happened to be the General Manager of the park.  The GM gave us a tour of the facilities past water slides, go carts, and the 21 (years olds) only bar area. There's also bowling, laser tag, and indoor black light miniature golfing too!  Then we parted ways so the manager could attend to business.  It was so nice of him to give up his time to show us around and he made sure we were taken care of.


Inside, we ate lunch at Water Dogs before we started our game.  A Philly Steak sandwich and chicken hot wings in a mix of Nitro and BBQ sauce.
Then we our game began.  I was leading and under par but slowly John caught up. I cracked under the pressure and in the end, he beat me.  So we'll have to go back for a rematch, LOL.
Afterwards we played some games in the arcade including air hockey (and John beat me again). Then watched the go-carts and since it was late, we didn't try it ourselves. But next time we will.
