Purchasing More Than Food

Yesterday, my boyfriend and his roommates decided a trip to Virginia City, Nevada was in order. Virginia City was a boomtown back in the days of mining; the site of the Comstock Lode.

Nowadays, it's a tourist trap, if you can even call it that. It's mostly stores selling hokey "western" wear and fancy rocks...and bars. There are so many bars in a two-to-three block radius.

For breakfast yesterday, I just whipped up some homefries for breakfast. Before we left for Virginia City, I made a quick pb&j sandwich to hold me over.

I collect postcards. I keep some and mail away most of them. I bought four postcards in Virginia City. I also found some incense I haven't been able to locate since I moved to California from Missouri. (It's called Fizzy Pop and it smells amazing!) When I found a store with it in Virginia City, I had to buy a little bit. Other than that, I only spent money on a bit of "entertainment" and some candy at the candy shop.

I shot some rounds at a shooting gallery and watched a short comedy bit in an old antiquey slide-machine. (I can't remember what they're called. It's a private viewing thing.)

When we finally left, we drove to Los Gallos in downtown Reno and I got a burrito that held me over for the rest of the night.
  • Incense: $0.50
  • Postcards: $1.50
  • Root Beer Sugar Stick: $0.25
  • Old-Fasioned "Slide Show": $0.25
  • Shooting Gallery: $1.00
