INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. - It is amazing that snow seems to fall everywhere except Tahoe - what's up with that? Places that don't even appreciate snow can get dumped on and we just get cut off from the world with no Internet service. Nice. I did learn how much we depend on Internet though.
Of course this is the big Presidents' weekend, so let's hope visitors arrive to enjoy the great conditions we do have - check out some of the local Facebook postings from Diamond Peak. That will make you get out on the mountain. Remember that many local businesses will be closed on Monday for the holiday including the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation and the IVGID main offices at Southwood.
We have a couple of events coming up on Friday, Feb. 22. You can choose to go inside or outside for your evening. The community snowshoe hike is Friday, Feb. 22. For information or to register, visit www.inclinerecreation or stop at the Rec. Center or call 775-832-1310. Or, attend the history "Happy Hour" from 5-6:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22, in the Prim Library at SNC. The guest speaker will be Don O'Bryan presenting "Dark Ecology." The event is free and light refreshments will be available.
Save the Date for an evening of Wine and Wisdom from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, at Tahoe Ridge Winery and Bistro in Minden. Tahoe's Mark Twain will provide the wit and wisdom. For reservations call Howard at 775-901-1100.
Also Save the Date for a wine tasting luncheon that will include the Riedel glass taste test and an elegant luncheon on Sunday, April 7. More information to come, but if you want to be on the mailing list for invitations send your information to email@example.com or call 775-298-0184. This is going to be spectacular!
I know that our local bowlers headed down to the City Open at Carson Lanes last weekend, but without Internet service, I did not get an up date so will have to wait until next week to report.
