Go for Green This St. Patrick’s Day

 

St Pats 2017

It’s that time of the year again when everyone’s a little Irish and also a little full from too much corned beef and cabbage! If you’re spending time in Tahoe for this wonderful holiday, then you will find there are plenty of ways for you to don your green and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

First on your must-do St. Patrick’s Day list should be a hearty helping of corned beef and cabbage. A St. Patrick’s Day celebration is incomplete without it! Luckily for guests of the Ridge Tahoe, the Bistro will be hosting a very festive meal on Friday, March 18, with a corned beef and cabbage special. The Bistro is open 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m.

Turn Up the Romance at The Ridge Tahoe

Now that’s a gift that says “I love you.” Dial (775) 588-3553, ext. 6000 or email spa@ridge-resorts.com to make a reservation.

Delish Dinners
An unforgettable Valentine’s Day has to include an equally memorable meal – and the Ridge Tahoe has two options for fantastic fare.pexels-photo-11140

Amp up the romance with a three-course meal at the Hungry Bear Restaurant.

The Hungry Bear Restaurant will host a journey through love with their Valentine’s Day dinner consisting of three courses:

  • The First Impression includes an organic beet and goat cheese napoleon with chive crème fraiche, beet oil, candied pecans and watercress.
  • The Longing, a duet, follows with the choice of two: grilled filet medallion with smoked bacon and cipollini onion demi-glace, half Maine lobster with drawn butter and lemon, pan seared diver sea scallops with caramelized pear vinaigrette, and grilled lamp chops with mint pesto. Each Longing is accompanied by marble au gratin and seasonal field vegetables.
  • The Forever Remembering is aptly named with white chocolate mousse in a Belgian dark chocolate cup with raspberry curd.

The Valentine’s Day menu is $60 per person and reservations are recommended.

For an alternative V-Day meal, the Bear Trap Lounge recently launched a new bar menu that includes classic bar fare like fish and chips and cheeseburgers, as well as delicious appetizers like the Ridge cheese board that includes a selection of cheeses, meats and spreads, and calamari steak strips. The Portobello burger is a bold choice – and a tasty favorite – that is also more calorie conscious than the average burger.

 

5 Ways The Ridge Can Help You Maintain Your Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions can be difficult to maintain – and even more so when vacationing. While on holiday, it’s easy to say yes to dessert, yes to sleeping in and yes to that extra cocktail while forgoing any previous commitments to eat healthy or workout among other goals.

Fancy Fannette Island in the Winter: Emerald Bay is one of the most visited sites in the world – and the visitors don’t stop coming just because it’s winter. Covered in a blanket of white, the pristine blue lake and Emerald Bay’s accompanying Fannette Island are a sight to behold in the colder months. However, before venturing out to Emerald Bay, please check current road conditions as the highway closes during storms.

Inject Some Magic into Your Wedding

With two snowfalls already under its belt in October, Tahoe South is ready for winter to descend upon the Sierra Nevada and blanket the region in white. Winter is not only a wonderful time to experience the outdoors via snowboarding, skiing and snowshoeing, it’s also an ideal time to get married in the mountains with gorgeous year-round venues and breathtaking backdrops.

8-the-ridge-tahoe-winter-weddings

If you’re a fan of the colder weather, a winter wedding provides a range of benefits and opportunities for an unforgettable fête with your family and friends.

Benefits of a Winter Wedding

  1. Your wedding has a little bit of magic. From freshly fallen flurries to the magic in the air from the buzz of the holidays, wintertime nuptials have a certain je ne sais quoi that makes the event feel electric.
  2. Oh, the accessories! With chillier temps comes more clothing and accessory options. If you’re less of a strapless gown gal and more of a faux fur stole or cape, then a winter wedding should be considered to fulfill your sartorial wedding dreams. Not to mention you can add fun holiday-themed flourishes through your décor.untitled
  3. Do you love hot cocoa and hot apple cider? While these would be out of place at a summer or spring wedding, they are an ideal beverage of choice for a winter wedding. Heartier meals are also a fitting option for dinner, so break out the comfort foods!
  4. Tahoe South is an ideal setting for a wedding regardless of the weather, but winter provides a unique perspective on the beloved Basin – and endless photo ops. Opt to throw snow in the air for a candid shot with the wedding party or pose among snowcapped trees with your beloved for unique photos you’ll cherish in any season.
  5. Tahoe South and The Ridge Tahoe are a great option for a honeymoon. Imagine the convenience of saying “I do” and settling into your honeymoon almost immediately afterwards. Take your sweetie for a couple of turns down the mountain, take a cruise to Emerald Bay on the year-round M.S. Dixie II and enjoy après ski options at a variety of restaurants for a taste of the local culinary scene.6-winter-weddings-at-the-ridge-tahoe
