ERIN 411! Destination: Reno Rodeo

    Fun, funny, and freakin’ cool- this is ERIN 411!, my video blog showcasing all the awesome things that happen in Reno/Tahoe. I grew up here and I truly love living in the area; Reno/Tahoe is such a diverse place that there’s something for everyone: stunning natural beauty for the outdoor enthusiast, museums and history for the culture buff, and of course-wild nightlife for the young and reckless. This summer I’m going to all the best events and you’ll be right here with me, so bring your sense of humor (I have a tendency to tell bad jokes) and get ready to rock!  First up in my vBlog is ERIN 411! Destination: Reno Rodeo. I put on my best cowgirl boots and shortest shorts and went down to what we here in Reno/Tahoe proudly call the "Wildest Richest Rodeo in the West." Started in 1919, the Reno Rodeo is one of the biggest on the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association circuit and boasts all the biggest names in cowboy and cowgirl competition.  Sound cool? Well, it is. And it’s hot. Real hot. When you watch my video you’ll see exciting clips of the bronc bustin’ and calf roping and bull riding in all its dangerous glory, me shopping for the essential rodeo accessory in spite of my unfortunate anatomical problem, having my heart stolen by a pint-sized cowboy, and asking the perennial question: what is it that makes cowboys so darn cute?
    So watch it already! Click below to my see vBlog – live from the Reno Rodeo! 

    And feel free to share the love and leave a comment. You can contact me directly with questions, complaints, requests to host your next birthday party or bar mitzvah (or just to chat) at 
    See you soon!

    That’s different. A video blog is much more interesting than stills. Thanks for showing us around the rodeo, Erin. It brings back memories of one I went to.
