Lake Tahoe, Cailf. -- The sunny Summer months on the shores of Lake Tahoe bring visitors from all around the world who are looking for a good time. Those months are also the busiest for the Southwestern themed restaurant, Caliente!, located at the east end of Kings Beach. Boaters, hikers, bikers, beach goers, river rafters, locals, and tourists alike enjoy sipping on handcrafted margaritas, cold draft beer, and Caliente’s legendary frozen signature drink “The Chupacabra”. The rooftop palapa bar makes diners feel as if they are on a tropical vacation and the delicious Mexican and Southwestern cuisine couldn’t taste better after a long day in the sun.
General Manager, Tim Honeycutt, is making sure that the Palapa Bar is in top shape for these coming month’s so that guests can enjoy themselves to the fullest. The Southwestern restaurant unofficially opened their rooftop palapa bar for the first time this season during their Cinco de Mayo fiesta. The fiesta festivities included the 7th Annual Chihuahua Races, the popular tortilla toss, and a pink taco eating contest. Entire families came out and there were events for everyone – including a piñata for the kids. For the official opening of the Rooftop Palapa Bar, Caliente will hold their “Party Under the Palapa” deck opening party on June 26th after being shut down for the cold Winter months.
Caliente works hard to provide a fun atmosphere with their summer promotions such as Chupacabra Thursday’s which runs every Thursday, all night, all summer. People love the legendary signature cocktail at Caliente “The Chupacabra” which is the frozen Tequila drink pictured in the photo above, but be warned… these alcoholic drinks are part of a signature drink collection known as the “Stiffest Drinks in Tahoe and Truckee”, along with Gar Woods signature drink “The Wet Woody” and Bar of America’s Signature drink “The Cock-Tail”.
