Tahoe’s potluck of peauts, pasta and musical pizzazz

David Naughton will earn his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from UC Berkeley next week.

Tired of staying home slaving in the kitchen with the same old, same old routine? Many local restaurants are practically giving away dinner and drinks, just to get locals in the doors during this challenging “shoulder” season. Wolfdale’s is offering two for one dinner entrees every night but Saturday, Jake’s on the Lake is offering three-course Alpenglow special dinners daily from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. with or without a glass of premium wine. River Ranch chef Julia Walters is also cooking up three-course dinners every night with a glass of wine for a great price. Over at The River Grill the locals love their Happy Hour from 5 to 6:30 p.m. every night with half price appetizers and lots of drink specials, not to mention two for one dinner entrees. Or head over to Sunnyside on Wednesday for half-price fish tacos and “Sundowner” dinners.

Wow, Dragonfly has slashed its entire dinner and sushi menu to half price for the month of May, Moody’s has a spaghetti and meatballs special with a glass of wine on Wednesday nights or a three-course good deal dinner on Sundays and Mondays, Cottonwood is having Happy Hour throughout the whole restaurant every night from 4 to 6 p.m. with discounts on selected menu items, drinks, and wines by the glass. Happy Hour is all night long on Acoustic Thursdays, Pianeta has a “Paesano” special of pasta, salad, and glass of wine and Pacific Crest offers Happy Hour Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. ’til closing with half price appetizers, pizza and salads. Take a break and enjoy life! Support your local restaurants and save yourself some bucks.

A whimsical rendering of the four Beatles graces the Lake Tahoe Music Festival Gala invitation which went out in the mail this week. That’s because the theme of this year’s Gala is “Magical Mystery Tour,” with the premier Beatles’ musical group the “Sun Kings” performing at this year’s event. The Gala is slated for July 16 at the resplendent lakefront Brushwood Estate on Westshore’s Sunnyside Lane. There’s lots of buzz about the Gala this year ” especially about the retro-themed attire choices with many guests thinking about donning granny glasses, hippie dresses, and bell bottoms. The exclusive event is expected to sell out earlier due to the popular Beatles theme. For more info visit http://www.tahoemusic.org.
