Carson City Nevada Part 5

The Big Day (Part 3 of 3)

Luncheon Reception

Red's Old 395

After the ceremony, Aunties LeeLee and Mae drove Xyra and me over to Reds Old 395 Grill. What a place. It's really neat. If you're driving down the road you can't miss the windmill portion. Quite the landmark.
We had a room to ourselves. It was really neat. The mantle was lined with  books. So of course, I had to check it out. [If you want to see more about this room, check out the Reds Old 395 Highlights page.]

We each had a menu. There were four choices...a little something for everyone.

Auntie Mame had the pulled pork. Xyra and I chose the brisket...without the onions. It was so good we ate it all before we thought about taking a picture. The beans and cole slaw were on the plate in edible tortilla dishes. So very cool!

Aren't the roses beautiful?
The entire restaurant is filled with neat items that Franz would have loved. Like this light.
And the's kind of like the one at Coolspring [It's also on the highlights page.]
I don't think I'd want to sit under this wagon. It looks really heavy.
After lunch we had vow reaffirming cake. It was really, really good. Chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling and white icing.
After lunch, Cocoa and had fun watching out the window and waited for the soup supper.
It was a really fun day.

Come back tomorrow to see what we did next.

Best wishes,


  1. So cool. I love the last photo. And the cake with mousse filling sounds yummy.
