News briefs: South Shore bar and deck honored, senior center event and death notice


Brooks’ Bar & Deck at Lake Tahoe’s Edgewood Tahoe was selected by the editors of Golf Digest as one of the “Best Golf Pubs” in the world. Brooks’ was previously selected by the same magazine as one of the top 50 “19th Holes in America” in 2008, praising the bar’s “postcard views of the course, Lake Tahoe, and snow-capped Sierras.” This new award features only 10 other pubs from around the globe in famous locations including Pebble Beach, California; Pinehurst, North Carolina; St. Andrews, Scotland; and Doonberg, Ireland.

The bar’s namesake is Brooks Park, whose grandfather purchased the property in 1896. The atmosphere inside Brooks’ Bar & Deck is that of a sports bar designed by Frank Gehry: sweeping vaulted ceilings, top-to-bottom windows and a handsome wooden build.


Richard D. Fox, 83, of South Lake Tahoe, passed away on April 28, 2016. In his memory, donations can be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
