1. Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Lake Tahoe lawsuit continues.

Kurt Hildebrand of the Record Courier reported that “Lawyers for the Reno firm that built the Lake Tahoe Hard Rock dropped their efforts to attach the casino’s earnings on Friday, Dec. 18, as a lawsuit in the case moved forward. The $9.6 million lien filed by SMC Construction Co. against Neva One in May was the opening salvo in a legal battle involving Hard Rock owners Jon and David Park.”

2. Truckee wins title of “ski town of the year” in Curbed Ski contest.

“In the tournament, Truckee defeated well-known ski havens Steamboat Springs (Colorado), Whitefish (Montana) and Crested Butte (Colorado) before edging Sun Valley (Idaho) by 369 votes in the championship round. More than 3,700 votes were cast in the final round,” Sierra Sun’s Kaleb Roedel reported.

3. Need coffee?

Learn about some of the region’s locally owned shops serving up “an assortment of caffeinated confections,” according to Josh Stabb.

4. Watch “The Hateful Eight,” in movie theaters now.

According to movie reviewer Lisa Miller, “Quentin Tarantino takes on racial and gender discrimination in his eighth film, entitled ‘The Hateful Eight.’ Posing as a spaghetti Western, the film wants us to puzzle over its central mystery. On the one hand it’s an Agatha Christie story set in the Wild West — on the other, we’re as likely to be bored by its rambling dialog as we are to be shocked by its graphic violence.”

5. Watch On the Hill host Sebastian Foltz make turns at Heavenly Mountain Resort — a perfect way to check out recent snow conditions. On the Hill is brought to you by the Tahoe Center for Orthopedics.
