Kristen and I did the Epic Crawl in Reno on Saturday. I dressed as alternate universe Spock and Kristen went as Jadzia Dax. The street were littered with inebriated cosplayers and we got to witness a giant lightsaber battle at Harrah’s.
Cloud Strife! He even had the sword, but he was getting ready for the lightsaber battle at the time.
Kristen and I rode our bikes to Camp Richardson for some world famous Rum Runner on Sunday. Kristen was scared to death most of the ride, but we made it through in one piece.

Last night two friends and I decided to go get some Pizza at The Blind Onion. We ended up going to their newest location on Los Altos Parkway. After grabbing a seat we looked at the menu and decided to order a large “Boss” pizza. The boss comes with olive oil, citrus chicken, red onions, cooked tomatoes, and garlic. While waiting for our pizza we got a game of shuffle board going on their awesome shuffle board table. The pizza came out soon after we finished our game and as usual it was delicious.
This location is substantially bigger than the other locations. This location has a very earthy wood feel to it, yet it still maintains that fun atmosphere of their other locations. They have children’s pictures of “The Blind Onion” hung up by the bathrooms. On the Tables they have six-pack holders with various shakers and a bottle of hot sauce in it and in true Blind Onion fashion a giant bottle of honey next to it. I have always found The Blind Onion to have great service and this location was no exception. Last but not least, having a shuffle board table is a big plus! Apparently the design on the table was made by a few of The Blind Onion employees.
The Blind Onion is not afraid to think outside of the box when it comes to new pizzas. They also offer various appetizers including BBQ wings as wells as salads and sandwiches. For drinks they offer a number of different beers in bottle and on draft as well as wine and soda.
Upon going to The Blind Onion’s I was surprised to find out that they have locations in Oregon, Washington, and Vancouver Canada. In Reno they have the Los Altos location as well as a location in South Reno and one in Victorian Square in Sparks.
In addition to the The Blind Onion the owners own Wild Garlic Pizza and Pub. This restaurant currently has a site that is under construction so all I know is that they have a location in the airport and another location on Mt. Rose Street.
The bottom line
I think The Blind Onion makes a great pizza as well as providing a fun atmosphere. I am curious about Wild Garlic (Blog post coming soon). Comment and let me know if you have tried Wild Garlic.
