North Lake Tahoe Golf Course Openings 2015

Tahoe Golf Season 2015

Golf season is upon us here in Tahoe.  That green grass is shining bright after much work from the grounds crews. Have you already dusted off the clubs and played at Old Brockway in Kings Beach, Ponderosa in Truckee or the Tahoe City golf course?  They have taken advantage of the warm weather and opened early for the season.  I am excited to see all of the courses get up and running by the end of the month.  

The Old Greenwood course is set to open this Friday, May 1st and has planned a fun event for Cinco de Mayo by pairing golf with tequila tasting!  Get your rounds in early for only $75 per round for the first 2 weeks through May 14th.

Gray’s Crossing will open up in a couple of weeks on May 15th. PJ’s Bar and Grill at Gray’s Crossing will open May 8th and will be the perfect place go for your Mother’s Day brunch!

Atelier – Truckee, CA

Truckee, CA 

The owners behind one of my favorite shops in downtown Truckee, Bespoke have opened up a new shop just two doors down called Atilier.  Atelier, meaning ‘workshop’ in French, opened its doors March 6th, 2015 with a grand showing and champagne toast for all.  

The shop is not only a place for artists, crafters and parents to come buy the most unique and quality supplies, but a place for creation. With a letter press set in the front of the store, you can watch resident artists in action.  

The best part of all is that you can yourself be an artist and come together with friends and the community to join in one of the many classes offered through Atelier.  The back half of the store is set aside for inspiring community classes.  Every first Friday of the month join in on the "Social Sketch" where you can collaborate and socialize with other artists, casual doodlers and creative people.  Classes are frequent and have diverse themes from sewing to photography to exotic cocktail making.  

Check out a full list of classes offered click here. 

So if wood carving, yarn, a paint brush, or cheese making appeal to you, stop in to Truckee’s newest community art hub!

Spring up to Tahoe for Good Eats

Spring up to Tahoe for Good Eats

We are about to enter the shoulder season here in Tahoe but with all this new snow and more on the way, the winter vibe is holding on a bit longer. With good deals on tickets, lodging and food, it’s a great time to come play.

After a fun day of adventures on the mountain or around town pick up the local paper to find great deals for your evening plans.

Don’t miss my favorite, Wolfdale’s in Tahoe City. This week they are offering 2-for-1 entrées. This quaint little restaurant has been a locals favorite since 1978 serving an unconventional combination of of Asian and European culinary treats. Always a good choice.

This is a great time of year to treat your loved one to The Soule Domain in Crystal Bay. Also offering 2-for-1 entrees this week, it’s hard to pass up. This cozy cabin turned restaurant is the perfect place to go as this family run business welcomes you in like family. Charlie Soule (chef and owner) will treat your taste buds to a delicious night out.

Cozy up to a window table hovering over the Truckee River at River Ranch Lodge and Restaurant located on HWY 89 at the base of Alpine Meadows. Sunday – Tuesday this Spring they are offering 1/2 price entrees. Enjoy the 40 years of history that surrounds you as the river passes by. If you’re in the mood, stay the night in one of the 19 rooms just upstairs.

If you are in Truckee for your après, you will want to stop into the new Truckee Tavern located in Historic Downtown Truckee. The cocktails are a work of art with hand chipped ice cubes in your whisky drink.

See you up in Tahoe for some good eats and great deals this Spring!
