Acceptance To Coral Academy Of Science


Song:  Perchance To Dream

Artist:  Two Steps From Hell


After rushing to put together Alex's records...
getting his shots updated...
and filling out the application forms...
with but one day to spare...
Alex was accepted to the 
Coral Academy Of Science.

We felt so good...
we just had to celebrate.

When it comes to food...
we are always on an adventure...
in search of great taste and ambiance.

We finally found our favorite Sushi restaurant
at, what is also, our new favorite Casino here in Reno
(with many other types of restaurants to try here).

This was a day of celebration for Alex.


The Atlantis...

THE BEST CASINO IN RENO.

It is the newest casino...
and a far cry from many of the older Casinos in Reno.

The style and layout of The Atlantis is spectacular.

It rivals many of the Casinos in Las Vegas.

There were many waterfalls and fountains...
multi level floors blended seamlessly into one...
a great collage of colors and sounds...
and a very unique restaurant area on a sky walk a few stories up.




This is the Sky Terrace Sushi Bar...
and as usual for Reno...
it is all you can eat for one very reasonable price.

We have eaten at many Sushi restaurants...
 here in America and in Japan.

This Sushi was some of the best we have ever eaten.

The combination of the food and the ambiance makes it...
by far...the best Sushi restaurant we have ever been to.

This particular hand roll was called "Jason".

It was filled with spicy scallops and green onions...
it was fantastic.


Although Alex normally can't tolerate spicy foods...
he loved the Tobiko Sushi (spicy fish eggs).


One of our favorite ice creams...
green tea.




  We are on our way back down onto the main casino floor from the walkway.




There were more water falls than what is shown here...
especially a large multi-floor one...
it, however, had not come out well in our photos.



The Atlantis

This is our new favorite place for great food and a very nice atmosphere.

This is the Casino to go to in Reno.

It is set apart from the rest...
being a few miles from downtown...
but that is appropriate...
as this Casino...
is miles apart from the rest in quality also.

In two days time from this point...
Alex is to be going to his first day at the 
Coral Academy Of Science.

What a wonderful day this had been...
good news...
good food...
good times.

  1. That sushi really does look delicious! I don't normally associate casinos with great food, but you found a great spot!

  2. Yes, my whole family loved the sushi. Even the miso soup was excellent! Just on the other side of the sushi bar was an oyster and seafood bar. We are thinking of trying that next time.
