Happy Heart Day!

Happy Heart Day  

There is a ton of things to do in South Lake Tahoe over the Holiday weekend whether you will be celebrating Valentine’s Day or President’s Day.  There are a couple of new restaurants in town that are a must try.  McP’s Tap House Grill is new, improved, and it just re-opened!  In addition to their normal pub-faire style food, they have added burgers, wraps, lasagna, and nachos to their menu! (just to name a few things).  They have 40 beers on tap, 20 TV’s in the house, and live music almost every night.  If you are planning on watching the NBA All-Star Game, this would be the place to see it.  Or, if you are more into watching live sports, our Lake Tahoe Blue Hockey Team will be playing three home games, one on Friday evening, one on Saturday evening, and one on Sunday afternoon.  Tickets are only ten dollars!

    Another new place that is a must try is the Cold Water Brewery.  It replaced the old Swiss Chalet Restaurant, it is totally remodeled (it is super nice and modern inside) and they brew their own beers!  They have a full bar and carry a few other top choice beers on draft.  The portion size for the fish and chips is incredible, and their burger is just as impressive.  Don’t forget to ask about their “grilled cheese sandwich” of the day.  The Cold Water Brewery also hosts local bands to keep their guests entertained.

    It is always fun to catch up on your turns on the mountain, but if you weren’t planning to bring your skis and boards, you can always bring your mountain bike or your ice skates!  The lower mountain biking trails are firm, fast, and fun and there is an outdoor ice skating rink in the Heavenly Village that plays energetic music to skate along to.  While you are there (in the Village), you might as well catch a new flick, shop for some crazy socks (at Sock City), and just walk a little further down the road to witness the newest edition to our town, The Hard Rock Casino!

It’s a Go! The Fireworks that is…..

Most of us in South Lake Tahoe breathed a collective sigh of relief recently when it was announced that the Lake Tahoe Visitors Association was able to negotiate a settlement of a potential lawsuit that would have put an end to our glorious fireworks display on the Fourth of July, and Labor Day holidays, this year and for all years to come.

Our annual fireworks displays have long been a tradition for many families to celebrate our country and the opening and closing of the summer season up here. The Local residents who brought about the suit, witnessed lack of a system of adequate clean up of the debris from the firework displays. They felt this default presented a serious danger to the health and clarity of the Lake. While no one in this community wants to participate in any activity that would present a serious threat to the health of our lake, we did not want to see this tradition we all enjoy on so many levels come to and end. LTVA worked hard to come to a resolution of all these issues, and we can once again look forward to these spectacular displays and holiday celebrations.

The Lake Tahoe Visitors Association is actually a great resource for information about many aspects of what is happening in South Lake Tahoe. They help to sponsor and promote many of the annual events that we enjoy in this community. Did you know that there is a direct link to their very informative website this, owner website? If you just click on the link under the Heading “Lake Tahoe Links,” Local Area Attractions it will take you right to their site http://tahoesouth.com/.

On the “Tahoe South” website you will find all the details for all the fun and interesting events coming up this spring and summer in South Lake Tahoe. Some upcoming events are the Cowboy Poetry Festival in Genoa on May 4 and 5th and at the end of this month the Valhalla Renaissance Fair. This summer there will be lots of fun music available at the Harrah’s Outdoor amphitheater including Bruno Mars, Journey/Steve Miller Band, The Eagles and Lady Gaga. You can enter the dates of your next visit to Tahoe and get a detailed list of events and activities taking place in town while you will be here.

We hope to see you soon!
