A week with the Jäger girls
action staff writer
For anyone who likes tequila, live music, pool tournaments, adult tricycle races, Mardi Gras beads and the Jägerettes, next weekend marks the beginning of one of the best times of the year. (If there is anyone out there who doesn’t like the aforementioned items, you have problems.)
That’s right, Snow Festival is upon us. With a proper party just about every night for the first week of March, Tahoe City to Crystal Bay will be the place to be.
Things are kicking off on Saturday, March 4 with the parade through Tahoe City. Look out for the Vulcans, they’ll smear your face with black. But, once you’re in their club you might as well just stick with them as they traipse down the street to Pete n’ Peter’s for the official after-parade party.
This is definitely a good time to follow those crazy Vulcans and the other throngs of people that will pack into Pete’s because our favorite servers, the Jägerettes, will be on hand. Not to mention the free stuff that’s sure to get handed out, the Jäger girls are just plain hot. Again, if you don’t want to party with them, there’s something wrong with you.
The Blue Agave is having Corazon-sponsored tequila tastings on both March 4 and 11, and we all know what good clean (okay, maybe not clean) fun happens when the tequila flows. The tastings are scheduled for 9 p.m. both nights.
Saturday will be a day to hire a younger sibling as a designated driver. With the parade, parties all along the North Shore and then AC/DShe playing the Crystal Bay Club at 9 p.m., the party is sure to rock all night long.
The next day, if you can drag yourself out of the party-induced coma you slipped into the night before, or if you never made it to bed at all, head to Pierce Street Annex for the Fastest Bartender Competition. The contest will feature area barkeeps racing head to head to see who can make the most drinks the fastest. The payoff, someone’s going to have to drink them.
On March 8, Pierce Street hosts the Naughty Dawg Dog pull, so bring your pooch and see how much beer it can pull. By the way, the Jägerettes will be on hand there too.
Crystal Bay is the spot again on March 10, as the zydeco sounds of Lil’ Brian and the Zydeco Travelers hit the Crown Room starting at 9 p.m. Bring some beads and your drinking shoes, it’s gonna be a wild night, Mardi Gras style.
Snow Festival comes to a close on Sunday, March 12 at The River Ranch with their 18th annual snow sculpting contest. Teams of three will compete for the best and most imaginative snow sculpture. There will be snowboards and skis raffled off, prizes such as dinners and lift tickets awarded to contestants, and penalties usually come in the form of Jäger shots. Not only will the Jäger girls be on hand, but all proceeds from the event go to Tahoe Adaptive Ski School.
For anyone who enjoys the occasional week-long party binge, next week is your time to shine. Dust off your wackiest hat, dig out your party beads and get ready to pub crawl. This time it’s not a cliche figure of speech. If you can keep up, by the week’s end you really will be crawling.
