Nugget evacuated after shots fired inside casino
The guys in that picture don't exactly look like gambling grannies.
This weekend, here in Reno, is the "Street Vibrations" event, and has nothing to do with "Biker Bars".
It's a time of year when the motorcycles, from all over, converge for a couple days to blow off some steam and have some fun. Unfortunately, not everyone is going to be on good terms either.
A recipe for misunderstandings and ego's to go awry.
Growing up in So, Cal, and Washington State, I can tell you for certain, it won't be me trying to talk some sense into a few of these fools.

I hope no one was hurt but sorry, nothing shocking about a shooting in Reno. Probably been going on for 200 years now.

But it's true.
Especially when lubricated with booze, and perhaps a little powdered octane booster.
There is a pretty big Hell's Angels Compound North of town. the perimeter usually decorated with what look like x-mas lights. Not sure how many are visiting from out of town this weekend. But there are Bikes ALL over the place this week. Last big event of the year for Reno/Sparks. Thank goodness...This was not a good year for pancakes, airplanes or bikers..
