September 6, 2023 | Kayla Anderson

Originally Published in The Sierra Sun 9/01/2023, Written by Kayla Anderson

While the pandemic changed the way that some restaurants and bars do business now, there are still several places around the Tahoe basin that offer patrons some of their most popular food and drinks at amazing prices near the end of the workday. Here are some of the best midweek (and sometimes weekend) après-activities food and beverage deals around the lake that invite you to come eat, drink, and be happy: 

Incline Village

Glasses Wine Bar

On Tuesdays-Fridays from 3pm-6pm, head over to Glasses Wine Bar on 760 Mays Boulevard #8 to get 15% off all wine, including the ones you can pour yourself out of the various wine dispensers. Sit at the bar and you can also try four wines for just $15. Ladies can get 20% off wine selections on Thursdays all day long, and Glasses opens at 3 p.m.

In The News – EAT This Week: Sam Choy’s Ohana Diner’s Godfathers Poke Bowl

Originally Published in the Tahoe Daily Tribune 8/31/2023, Written by Robert Galloway & photo credit

To try and decide each week where and what to eat in and around the basin can be a challenge – there are so many amazing choices. In this feature, we’ll dive into dishes that will surely satisfy those hunger pangs and leave you wondering where to go next.

I’m a sucker for good poke. I’ve written about multiple options that can be found around the lake in this column – each of them delicious in their own way. But, when you have a chef in Sam Choy who is often credited as the “Godfather of Poke,” you have to have certain expectations, right? Well, the expectations in this week’s feature certainly deliver.

This bowl really is a choose your own adventure when it comes to each flavor-packed bite. The carousel of components contain Namasu, endamame, lomi tomato, seaweed salad, and sitting in the center is the star of the show: shoyu or spicy poke aioli sitting atop a bed of steamed hapa rice then topped with unagi sauce, crispy won ton strips and furikake.

Alibi Barrel House for your next Event

May 31, 2023 | Member Submitted

With summer quickly approaching, the Alibi Barrel house is a fantastic event site for a unique experience with great beer on tap.

Our original taproom – the Barrel House – at our production brewery in Incline Village, is a comfortable and cozy space for people to gather and relax. With beautifully crafted indoor and outdoor spaces, it’s also a great place to book for your next private event or a private brewery tour & tasting!

Our brewers curate a draft and bottle list of their favorite beers, and there are often a few Barrel House-exclusive beers here. We offer beers by the glass, flights, and plenty of to-go options: cans, bottles, crowlers and growlers. We also serve wine, cider, and our house-brewed n/a kombucha.

We have awesome Alibi merchandise for sale, including gift cards. And although we don’t operate a kitchen, you are welcome to bring your own food or order in from one of the many restaurants in the neighborhood. We recommend T’s Mesquite Rotisserie and Inclined Burgers.

As a friendly reminder, we are a 21+ establishment. Due to Washoe County regulations, dogs are not allowed on our property, so please leave your furry friends at home.

Why a James Beard Award-winning chef opened a restaurant in a Tahoe bowling alley

As temperatures rise, snow continues to melt and days grow longer, the last place you might think of planning your Tahoe trip around is a bowling alley — but that would mean missing out on one of the lake’s newest and most notable pieces of paradise, straight from Hawaii.

A vintage holdover from the mid-1960s, Incline Village’s Bowl Inclinerecently underwent a complete overhaul. It now features refurbished and illuminated bowling lanes, a new bar, a fully stocked arcade and pool room, giant flat screen TVs, outdoor dining and games, event spaces, and even an ax-throwing range in a welcoming 17,239-square-foot facility.

EAT This Week: T’s Tri Tip Burrito

If I had to select a cut of beef that epitomized the west coast, I might have to go with the tri tip. Having family and friends in the south and on the east coast, it’s amazing that this cut isn’t more recognized nationally. So, any time I get to feature it in a column (like in the case of this week), I’m like a kid in a candy store.
