INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. and#8212; Are you ready for the return of football season? Well, ready or not, it is back. But at least football can entertain us during the shoulder season at Tahoe. If you want to eliminate some of the campaign ads and just enjoy football, the solution is to head over to one of our local establishments offering football specials. No campaign ads and you can see it all without ads!
Please remember on Tuesday, Sept. 11, to pause and remember Patriots Day.
