Tahoe City Day: Pub crawl, scavenger hunt, sidewalk sales and more on tap
TAHOE CITY, Calif. — On August 8, 1863, Tahoe City was surveyed and recorded. That date was proclaimed Tahoe City Day for evermore. This weekend, all Tahoe City will be celebrating. Join in on the fun!
On Friday night, Aug. 5, a unique Poker Run/Bar Crawl will be happening at participating Tahoe City bars. The Tahoe City Poker Prowl, sponsored by Blue Agave, will start at 6 p.m. with check-in in the Blue Agave bar area.
Participants will then draw a card at each participating bar. The best hands win great prizes. Cost is $10 per hand. Bring friends and have some fun.
The Tahoe City Scavenger Hunt also begins Friday night and runs through Monday. The hunt is designed to be a challenging contest to determine who knows Tahoe City history, trivia, current and past businesses and legends.
