Snowshoe Cocktail Races at the Beacon Bar & Grill
When: 02/15 from 5pm to 7pm
Where: Beacon Bar & Grill at Camp Richardson
The triple crown of Lake Tahoe winter events, Camp Richardson’s Snowshoe cocktail races return for another round of hilarity and sport. Other destinations have races, but nothing comes close to this three-part race series held on the beach in front of the Beacon Bar and Grill. This annual tradition is free and tests participants’ balance, speed, and agility.
Racers, cocktail trays in hand, navigate through obstacles, and up and down the beach. The winner is the fastest and driest at the finish. Spill your drinks and you lose. For their efforts, competitors can win prizes that range from snowshoes and dining certificates to equipment and marina rentals. Registration is free for multiple race categories.
Saturday, February 15, 2020, Celebrated Songwriter and Guitarist Jonny Lang at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa, Doors at 7:00 pm, Show at 8:00 pm.
Fans who discovered Jonny Lang through his searing instrumental work will revel in the huge guitar tones and go for broke solos on Signs, while those who have appreciated his growth as an honest and passionate songwriter will find that honesty and passion unabated. Though he long ago left blues purism behind, Lang has never abandoned its spirit of universal catharsis through the relating of personal trials. Signs reaffirms his commitment to the blues and the guitar without sacrificing the modern approach that has made him such a singular artist.
Wednesday, February 19, 2020, 8:00 pm, Collie Buddz in the Showroom at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa.
