News briefs: Tahoe South Restaurant Week, Goodwill opening and more


Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority will continue supporting Tahoe South Restaurant Week in an effort to connect visitors and locals with the South Shore culinary scene — an event that returns Sept. 16-23. In partnership with Tahoe Chamber and the newly formed Restaurant Industry Group, Restaurant Week will align efforts with Sample the Sierra (, the popular farm-to-fork festival.

All South Shore restaurants are encouraged to participate in this promotion by showcasing a fixed menu or item to tie-in with the farm-to-fork theme. Whether a locally-sourced product or an item paired with a local brew, wine or spirit, this is the perfect opportunity to feature the very best food and beverages in the Tahoe region.

For more information on participating contact Georgette Hartley, LTVA integrated marketing manager, at or Irma Salazar, visitor information specialist, at or 530-544-5050, ext. 101.
