Lake Tahoe Restaurant Week starts Sunday
The inaugural Lake Tahoe Restaurant Week kicks off Sunday. More than 30 restaurants around the lake will offer three-course prix-fixe menus at reduced prices. Lake Tahoe Restaurant Week attendees can also save up to 35 percent on lodging at participating properties.
