I’m back

Well, since taking Personal Branding in the MBA program at UNR I have come to realize even more than I had previously how important it is to maintain a personal brand as well as a substantial online presence. I am still active on Twitter although it is primarily just funny things that I retweet. I also keep my LinkedIn profile up-to-date. Since the class though I have neglected possibly the most important part of maintaining a brand online which is having your own website/blog. I have decided that I am going to maintain my domain and blog. I pretty much going to disregard the vague theme of a blog I had before and pretty much post whatever I feel like. I figured it is better than nothing and gives me an excuse to continue paying for my domain justinboucher.com

I leave you with this:

Metal at Knuckleheads

knuckleheads reno nevada shuffle boardLast weekend my roommate and I went down to Knuckleheads Bar & Grill to watch a band I used to play for called “Half a Tusk” as well as a couple of other bands. The show was supposed to start at 8:00, but like most local shows I figured it would be late so we got there at 8:30.

When we walked in I was happy to find that they weren’t charging a cover. I then walked over to catch up with my old band mates a bit. After a little chit-chatting I walked over to the bar get a round of beers. While walking up to the bar I saw a sign for a bucket of 5 Rolling Rocks for $8.75 (Can’t beat that). I went ahead and got a bucket and proceeded to doll them out.

It still didn’t look like anybody was getting on stage soon, but I didn’t have a problem with that, because they have free shuffle board. The table might not be quite as nice as The Blind Onion, but who cares. We ended up getting our fare share of shuffle board in, because the first band “Hell Pig” didn’t come on until 9:30.

half a tusk knuckle heads reno nevadaHell Pig was a little gimmicky with the front man wearing a slaughter pig mask and playing various sound clips between songs. They did put on a good show though. After Hell Pig was Half a Tusk. These guys just love to shred. Both guitar players are very talented. If you enjoy good guitar playing regardless of your predisposition to metal I recommend giving these guys a listen. After Half a Tusk I said good bye to my old band mates as the were breaking down and went home with my roommate.

The bar

Knuckleheads would most likely be filed under a dive bar. I tend to enjoy dive bars and Knuckleheads is no exception. The staff for the most part has always been friendly and the place is kept clean.

One thing I really like about Knuckleheads is that they offer no shortage of things to do. In addition to the shuffle board table they have two pool table, dart boards, pinball machines, and a ping-pong table.

The menu

If you are just coming in for a drink they usually have some sort of deal going on. Last time I cam to Knuckleheads they were offering $3 Third-Shift and you got to keep the glass. Other than that they have a full bar with beer wine and liquor.

The food probably doesn’t rank well through Weight Watchers, but if you want some greasy bar food then Knuckleheads is the place to go. Like their drinks the food is quite reasonably priced. Knuckleheads offers burgers, jalapeno poppers, chicken wings, and even a couple of different pasta dishes.

The bottom line

If you don’t mind or even enjoy a bit of a dive atmosphere, then I highly recommend checking out Knuckleheads. They offer a fun atmosphere with affordable food and drinks. If you prefer a more mellow experience then go on a weeknight. If you enjoy the local music scene and especially metal, Knuckleheads usually has shows every weekend.
