The International Good Samaritans, Lake Tahoe’s unique safe ride club, recently presented the Peoples Choice Awards to Carina Evans, owner of Carina’s Cafe and Tim Halloran, owner of Nepheles Restaurant.

People who participated in the six car and motorcycle shows that IGS hosts each year at Lake Tahoe selected these two restaurants as their favorites.

Nepheles Restaurant won for “Restaurant with Best Food” and Carina’s won for “Restaurant with the Friendliest Service.” These two restaurants also participate with IGS in providing free or discounted taxi rides home for any of their guests who have been drinking or feel unsafe to drive for whatever reason.

IGS commends these two restaurants for their good food, friendly service and concern for community safety.

IGS would like to remind every to please not drink and drive this holiday season and to be a good friend and party host by not letting your friends and party guests drive home after drinking at your holiday parties.

Coupons for free or discounted taxi rides are available by calling IGS at (530) 541-7300.
