How about a Mardi Crawl?

Friday, February 17th, 2012
President’s Day Weekend is popular weekend in Lake Tahoe, but in addition to patriotism there is another reason to celebrate in Tahoe this weekend.  Extend your stay at Granlibakken for Mardi Gras and laissez les bons temps rouler!  Let the good times roll! There are fun events going on all weekend all around the lake, but check out some of our north shore favorites and don’t forget your beads.

Kick off your weekend at Lakeside Tahoe City tonight with DJs Micah J and Tre Tuna in a President’s Weekend Throw-down.  The battle starts at 9 pm so stop by for some drinks, dancing and fun electronic music.

Looking for specials on ski school this weekend? Mt. Rose Rosebuds Half Day Ski Program is offering a President’s Day weekend price. For $135 your child can receive 4 hours of instruction, a boxed lunch, rental equipment, helmet, all day lift ticket and preferred parking in the main lot front row. The half day ski program runs from 9 am-2pm and space is limited, reservations recommended.

Ski at Squaw Valley in the morning on Fat Tuesday and join in on the Mardi Crawl starting at KT Base Bar at 2 PM.  The Mardi Crawl will continue on to Cantina, Mamasake, Auld Dubliner, 22 Bistro and finish at Rocker.  Each location will be featuring drink and food specials in honor of Fat Tuesday.

Squaw isn’t the only place offering Mardi Gras festivities. Northstar is celebrating on and off the mountain with food & drink specials and live music. Check out TC’s Pub‘s specials — fried shrimp po-boys, jambalaya and hurricanes Saturday, February 18-Fat Tuesday, February 21. The Lodge at Big Springs will have a different food special Sunday-Wednesday including Cajun burgers, a blackened salmon sandwich and continual drink specials of rum punch, hurricanes and razzmatazz drinks.  Summit Deck & Grill is offering food and drink specials Saturday-Tuesday including crawfish gumbo, Cajun stuffed peppers, melon balls and Blue Tahoe’s.  Chili Peppers Dos is offering specials on Cajun seasoned shrimp tacos on Fat Tuesday.

Want to do some ice skating after a day on the mountain? Wear your green, gold and purple turtlenecks for Turtleneck “Fat” Tuesday and enjoy ice skating at the Northstar Village from 6pm-9pm.

And you won’t want to miss out on the live music at Northstar from 2pm-5pm. The Saint Gabriel’s Celestial Brass Band will ring in Fat Tuesday with authentic New Orleans-style music on the Northstar Village Stage around the ice skating rink. What better way to finish a day of skiing or snowboarding?

What festivities will you be taking part in this holiday weekend?
