2. Not sure what to watch for movie night? Try “10 Cloverfield Lane.”

Tahoe-based film reviewer Lisa Miller said, “The film’s final act is both unexpected and qualifies the movie as a sort of side sequel to J.J. Abrams’s 2008 ‘Cloverfield,’ a creature-feature that found a group of young people attempting to survive an attack from alien monsters. Well-crafted and tense from start to finish, part two exceeds its source material, adeptly mixing genres and villains.”

3. Keep your home clean with eco-friendly solutions.

Toree Warfield, a Tahoe writer, said, “A good basic cleaner for the home is diluted vinegar. Vinegar is an acidic, clear liquid substance derived from the fermentation of ethanol by acetic acid bacteria, usually made from fruits or grains, and can be used as a primary ingredient in many green cleaning products, including as a disinfectant, in addition to its culinary uses.”
