  • Summer’s bounty

    By Tim Hauserman on June 26, 2013
    Nothing says summer like a farmers’ market. Whether you are wandering through the pine trees in Truckee, or hanging out just above the sun-drenched beach in Tahoe City, it’s all about the rows of bright colors and fresh fruits and vegetables that make us think local and healthy. Farmers’ markets have been going on for thousands of years throughout the […]
  • Riding the wind

    By Tim Hauserman on June 26, 2013
    If you are visiting Lake Tahoe, gazing at the awe-inspiring splendor of the lake for the first time is an incredible treat, but to really appreciate Tahoe’s beauty, you need to get onto the lake. You can get a workout by renting a paddleboard or kayak, you can roar down to Emerald Bay by renting a power boat, or you […]
  • Quintessential dining — Tahoe style

    By The Weekly on June 26, 2013
    Dining at Gar Woods is the well-rounded Tahoe package — beautiful views, a flavorful menu and luscious libations. My husband, Steve Caswell, most discerning when it comes to accompanying me on a dining review, graces me with his presence for the evening, as he shares my enthusiasm for this place. We head in for an early supper so we can […]
  • Wine flights great choice at Spindleshanks

    By Barbara Keck on June 26, 2013
    Spindleshanks American Bistro and Wine Bar boasts one of the most extensive and fun wine lists in the Lake Tahoe area. No matter how many times you go to enjoy their wine and food, you’ll never exhaust your sense of great pairings and wonderful wines from around the world.

  • Gray’s Crossing

    By Katherine Hill on June 26, 2013
    The Golf Club at Gray’s Crossing was recently certified as only the second Audubon International Golf Signature Sanctuary in California. This is the highest level of achievement for all of Audubon International’s environmental programs. The first hole is a par 4 measuring 444 yards from the black tees. It is a good opening hole that is relatively wide open with […]
  • The Sharpie

    By Bruce Ajari on June 26, 2013
    I have been fly-fishing for a long time, since I began when I was only 10-years-old. During this time, I have learned a few things that I have been able to pass along to my children and some of my friends. Some of these lessons were learned when I experienced some of the most frustrating days on the water. One […]
  • Western States 100: Run into the Past

    By Mark McLaughlin on June 26, 2013
    During this last weekend in June, elite international ultra-marathon runners are converging on Olympic Valley for the world’s oldest and most prestigious 100-mile trail race. This grueling footrace is promoted as “one of the undisputed crown jewels of human endurance” and few would argue. The Western States 100 starts near the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics, where runners test […]
  • Ice wagon

    By Warren Miller on June 26, 2013
    I am in the final stages of editing my biography after a 4-year struggle writing about the ups and downs through a lot of years: much fun, some pathos. Some parts of my life are probably only interesting to me, but I’ve put it all down, never the less. I have been privileged to live through a lot of changes […]
  • Prezident Brown

    By The Weekly on June 26, 2013
    Cultural chanter Prezident Brown, a tall dread by appearance, has always kept to the high road of consciousness and stayed away from the ranks of gun and pum-pum lyrics with a good mix of message music and love songs. Unlike many other Jamaican artists, Brown isn’t a high prolific artist. Rather than flooding the reggae market with lots of singles, […]
  • Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Shrimp

    By Chef David “Smitty” Smith on June 26, 2013
    I admit it. I had it. Hey, it happens to everyone once in a while, and this was about as bad a case as I’ve had in years. I’m talking full-blown, head-scratching, racking-the-brain, writer’s block. For days, I tried to come up with a good recipe that I hadn’t done before with absolutely no luck. Steve K. wasn’t around to […]
