New In Town
Congratulations on your new hometown. It’s a popular choice these days. In case you’re wondering what to do with your free time, here is a guide brought to you by accident, clinically diagnosed ADD, and a seven-hour plane ride. What began as a simple 1,200-word article on offbeat social groups morphed into a weird and massive flowchart somewhere over Colorado when I stumbled across a paragraph about Reno in Southwest’s Spirit magazine. The blurb featured Lake Tahoe, the Atlantis and the car from Titanic that lives at the National Automobile Museum less than five minutes from my home. This last item was quite a shock. In my nine years in Reno, I never visited—let alone heard about—the Titanic car. Thankfully, this problem has been fixed … but maybe not for you. Perhaps your Titanic car is still undiscovered. It could be bar crawls and all-you-can-eat sushi if you’re new. Arthouse movies and tattoo sleeves if you’re a local. Or karaoke night. I’m not here to judge.
