photobooth friday- keeping it loco(al)

it was only a matter of time.
one of the new, hip bars downtown was bound to do it sooner or later.
thank goodness I have friends on the “outside” who can fill me in on the haps around town.
There is a real-deal, black and white, film photo booth in Reno.

St. James photobooth
yep. pretty cool if you ask me.
Start saving your ones if you are coming to visit because I might just have to drag you down there for a sitting.
I hit up St. James Infirmary on Cinco de Mayo with two of my girls (also photo booth lovers. we have a history) for margaritas and a visit.
(can’t find a website, but they are located on California Ave just east of Arlington Ave, 445 California Ave if you want to get technical)

The booth was calling our names and it was only a matter of time before the margaritas were nothing but ice and a squeezed lime and the dollar bills were burning a hole in our pockets.
So there we were, all three squishing into the box- just like old times.
(some how I managed to totally take over this strip… sorry chicas!)

I have made a request to go back this weekend with the kid in tow (yeah, he’s going into a bar, what?) for a little Mother’s Day session.

Hurray for the booth!

PS if you are looking for a photobooth (photochemical kind, not the digital type) there is a great resource over at to help you locate one near you.

    The only photo booth I’ve ever been into was at a CHUCKY CHEESES in Rochester….it was horrible and bitmap-ish.

    The one you went to looks awesome…clear and you look very pretty in the shots!

    Bobapalooza! Yes, what was I thinking!?

    Okay, I share the love of photo booths as well. The only one I have been able to find in SLC is at a run down K Mart. Boo. After seeing Amelie I think my love grew even stronger.

    Your night sounds like an immense amount of fun.
