This week’s action: Game on! Tahoe summer is in full swing (opinion)

It’s been starting to feel a lot more like summer in the past few days at Lake Tahoe, and not just because reliably perfect weather is back in the forecast. The summer events calendar is filling up with new events daily, and we’re on the brink of prime outdoor music season (see the Live at Lakeview lineup). Take a hike, book a tee time or go for a paddle, and then check out one of the many entertainment options available at the South Shore. ‘Tis the season. Here are a couple picks for the week:

1. ‘Cabaret’

Lake Tahoe Community College’s Theatre Arts Department consistently puts on entertaining stage shows, and “Cabaret” should be no different. The college’s production of the award-winning Broadway musical opens Friday and runs through next weekend. More information is available on page 2.

2. Preservation Hall Jazz Band

I was fired up when this show was announced. This New Orleans group is an institution that doesn’t make it out west much. They play Harrah’s Lake Tahoe Saturday, June 11. There were still some tickets left Wednesday afternoon.

3. Have a bloody, buddy

If you plan on having a late night Saturday, pencil the bloody mary competition at Steamers Bar & Grill into your Sunday calendar. It’s a great local bar and last year’s competition featured sliders as garnishes.

4. Alex Ramon

This Bay Area magician returns to the South Shore for a summer run of his new show, “Impossible,” this week. Sounds like he’s got some unique illusions cooked up for audiences at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe.
