Check out the live music and street party and swing by the restaurant’s patio for some special deals on food and drinks.
Saturday, June 22 is the annual Tahoe City Wine Walk where locals and guests can gather on the boulevard to nibble on the local gourmet food and savor the wine of nearby wineries. This event features a great way to absorb the Tahoe culture, browse the shops, taste the local goods, and take in the views of the lake from the boulevard.
