TAHOE CITY, Calif. — The 62nd Annual North Tahoe Community Awards Dinner was hosted by the North Tahoe Chamber/CVB/Resort Association this past Wednesday, April 20th at the Resort at Squaw Creek. Tahoe Restaurant Collection was recognized among other local businesses and organizations for their contributions and dedication to the North Lake Tahoe community.
This year, more than 250 local business owners, community leaders and members were in attendance to join in on the celebration. Tahoe Restaurant Collection was awarded the Large Business of the Year Award for 2014 (since they were not able to attend last year’s award ceremony). Tom Turner was grateful for the honor and delivered an entertaining speech paired with fun banter with the designated emcee for the night, Dave Mulligan of Mad Mulligan Productions. Turner then presented a trophy to the 2015 Large Business of the Year, The Bridgetender Tavern & Grill.
In addition to receiving the 2014 Business of the Year Award, Tom was given an award by The Tahoe Fund who gave a presentation highlighting the ongoing support received by Gar Woods, Riva Grill, Bar of America and Caliente!
Tom and his managers who joined him that evening left the ceremony feeling honored for the recognition received by the North Tahoe Community. They will proudly display their trophies and are honored to be recognized by the North Lake Tahoe Community and the Tahoe Fund.
Gar Woods to Host 3rd Annual Labor Day Fireworks Spectacular on Sunday, September 6th
Carnelian Bay, CA August 19, 2015 – Home of the “Wet Woody”, Gar Woods Grill & Pier and The Monte Foundation will be hosting their 3rd Annual “Fireworks Spectacular” on Sunday, September 6th at 8:30pm. You are invited to sit front row on the action and watch the Labor Day Weekend sky light up just off Gar Woods pier. Many have said this is the best firework show they’ve ever seen, so don’t miss out!
The lakefront fireworks show will not only pay homage to the social and economic achievement of workers but will also benefit North Tahoe-Truckee Area High School Sports Programs. In the last two years this event has raised over $48,000 that went directly to funding local sports programs and they are out to break a record this year.
In addition to the money Gar Woods donates from the evening, Incline High School athletes will be selling event T-shirts and glow sticks on the beach that will contribute to the proceeds. Guests can also leave a donation on their credit card, write a big fat check or leave lots of cash while dining at Gar Woods, Bar of America, or Caliente this month. 100% of these donations will go directly to high school sports programs in the Tahoe-Truckee Area.
Gar Woods is an iconic cornerstone restaurant in North Tahoe known for it’s amazing food, drinks and view. Owner Tom Turner believes in giving back to the community that has supported Gar Woods for 27 years. He looks forward to this year’s benefit and that will contribute to well-being of North Tahoe.

Every first Thursday of the Month, Caliente in Kings Beach hosts a Tequila Tasting which draws quite the crowd. Once someone comes to one of these tastings you can expect to see them at more becuase it's "Such a great deal" and so much fun! If you purchase one full-priced specialty drink at the Caliente Bar, that alone will earn you admission to the tasting, complimentary appetizers, and you'll gain some interesting knowledge about Tequila.
This coming May, instead of hosting the Tequila Tasting on the first Thursday of the Month, Caliente has decided to move it to the first Tuesday (May 5th) to coincide with the Cinco de Mayo festivities that are scheduled for that day. Among these festivities are Chihuahua Races, Tortilla Tossing, Pink Taco Eating Contests, and a Pinata for the ninos that want to join in on the fun day of festivities.
Don't miss out on this years celebration! See you on Cinco de Mayo!
