One of my favorite places in Reno is the Peppermill Hotel & Casino. Essentially it's a large scale version of the Peppermill Fireside Lounge in Vegas. It's a total throwback to the wacky over-the-top casinos of the 1960's.

It vibes giant purple bordello !!

(Oh wait, I see you just added it. Great minds think alike. )

Bruce,
I just just saw this post. Nice job and I couldn't agree with you more on your choices. I have a brother that lives there and I go there several times a year. I have been to all the places you mention and enjoy them all.
My nephew, a young Reno firefighter has taken me to a few of his favorite places.

The FLOWING TIDE PUB 2 is located at 465 S. Meadows Pkwy. #5, Reno, NV. 89521, (775) 284-7707. There are three of these in the Reno area but this one is my favorite. The drinks are stiff and good and lots of good beer on tap. The grub from their grill is pretty good. I enjoy their bloody Mary and I have them make it with Tito's Vodka.

My favorite breakfast place is the Gold N Silver Inn. Lots of good food on your plate so go hungry. 790 West 4th Street Reno, Nevada 89503.They Never Close! They have been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

I enjoy walking thru the Antique shops on Virgina Street near downtown. I occasionally locate a rare find at a reasonable price.
