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!
