We would like to thank the community of Truckee for helping to make the Sam Brixey Memorial Soccer Tournament a huge success for the fourth year in a row. As always, we count on and appreciate the following individuals and businesses: Dianne Howell, Danny Long, Truckee Bagel Company, The Treat Box, Starbuckand#8217;s, Gioielliand#8217;s, Mane Attraction, Safeway, Gratitudes, The Cooking Gallery, The Niche, The Backstreet Boutique, Marilynand#8217;s Catwalk, Dressed, Tacoand#8217;s Jalisco, The Bookshelf and Alpenglow Sports.

West Shore Cafe thanks Tahoe community for successful Labor Day weekend

The team at West Shore Cafe wishes to send a huge thank you to the Lake Tahoe community for making the special Labor Day opening a grand success.

The patio was filled with old friends and neighbors, new faces and visitors; and superb weather conditions were ideal for guests who arrived via boat and kayak.

The West Shore Cafe patio was lined with 60 red, oversized sun umbrellas, inviting groups as large as 20 people to lounge in the shade while enjoying the holiday menu. The most popular dishes included ahi nachos, steak frites, the Cobb salad and the stuffed Portobello mushroom. Children were right at home running along the beach in front of the patio dining area, stopping only for the most popular dish on the kidsand#8217; menu and#8211; macaroni and cheese.

The Emily Tessmer Trio played on the West Shore Cafeand#8217;s pier throughout the weekend to a packed audience, taking a brief break only to take in the view. Locally based, the trio plays throughout Northern California and the Tahoe area. Renowned for their soulful original sounds, they entertained all throughout the three day holiday.

The three-day patio party at West Shore Cafe was held to celebrate a new beginning for the West Shore Cafe, which closed its doors during the summer of 2009. JMA Ventures, LLC acquired the West Shore Cafe August 2010 and the great mood and atmosphere during Labor Day weekend was a sign for things to come. The announcement for the inn and restaurantand#8217;s grand opening (which will signify the West Shore Cafeand#8217;s permanent opening) will be made later this summer. Please visit for updates and announcements.
