The Great Pumpkin Patch and Bounce-0-Ween highlight Tahoe City Halloween festivities

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

With fall colors firmly set and those night time Lake Tahoe temperatures dropping, the snow has already begun to fly. Ahead of the holidays is Harvest and Halloween.

Downtown Tahoe City’s “Great Pumpkin” can be found Oct. 27 during the Community Festival and Pumpkin Patch at Rideout Community Center, 740 Timberland Lane in Tahoe City. This family event features costume contests, carnival games, pony rides, bounce house and face painting. Back for the third year is the Giant Pumpkin Seed Hunt, a favorite activity for kids and perfect photo opportunity for parents.

Don't miss the Pumpkin Patch at Rideout Community Center Oct. 27.

Night time pre-Halloween venues include Bride of Bounce-O-Ween at Lakeside Pizza and Sports Bar, Saturday, Oct. 27. This glitch-hop dubstep party features Ft Russ Liquid, Thriftworks and Hamm FM. Show begins at 9 p.m.

You’re sure to find plenty of drink and food specials for Halloween at any number of downtown bars and restaurants including the Blue Agave, the Bridgetender, Pete N’ Peter’s, Lakeside Pizza and Sports Bar, The River Grill and Rosie’s Cafe.

Deck the Decks with Boughs of…Margheritas

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Do you the power of Tahoe restaurant decks? If you do and haven’t been on one yet this summer then you have some explaining to do. If you have yet to harness this power then please, read on…

Within a five to ten minute bike ride from Granlibakken’s intersection with West Lake Blvd. you can pedal / coast your way to a many different slices of heaven. To the north you can go to Tahoe City and sit on the deck of Jake’s On the Lake to enjoy a lunch, dinner or some drinks overlooking the Tahoe Marina and a looooong expanse of Tahoe’s azure surface. Head back towards the Big G, where the Truckee Rover is born from Tahoe and you have two great choices – the outdoor bar of the Bridgetender and the Rover Grill. The first is Tahoe’s best burger joint with tables along the river. The latter is a little higher end with Tahoe’s favorite outdoor happy hour with a firepit and music every Wed – Sun (7pm-10pm), right over the river’s edge.

Heading south of Granlibakken you can pedal down to Sunnyside – my favorite moonrise deck – with it’s massive expanse of wood and lengthy outdoor bar. The arrangement here is classic: fancy dinner go-ers on one side, barstools and sandals on the other. If you were to drive a few miles south of here, you’d find yourself moored up at the oldest pier-bar on the West Shore : Chamber’s Landing. This is located at the end of a dock where you can arrive by pedal, foot, sail or motor vessel. This awesome place has cheap grilled lunch, a ton of outdoor hang-space and it gets the last sun on the West Shore because of its prominent location.

For you boaters, the Granlibakken blog will spare no expense in providing content based on strict research for another post about boating to all of Tahoe’s best water accessible speakeasies – more on that later…
