Extended: Contest to Rename the Ridge Deli for a delicious prize

Great news fans, we’re extending the contest for a few days until Friday, July 25 at 5 p.m. PST. Think outside the box, get the creative juices flowing because you can still come up with an ingenious name to describe the fresh, simple, natural food that Ridge Tahoe has to offer.

The Ridge Tahoe is looking to revamp their deli with a new name. However, they aren’t going to do it alone.

They would like to reach out to the community and any other clever minds to help rename the delicious Ridge Deli. Sharing an idea will have its benefits, too.

The Ridge Tahoe is launching a renaming contest that will last from July 8 at 12 p.m. to July 22 at 12 p.m. It is easy to enter: simply click on the below link, enter a brilliant suggestion, and you will automatically be in the running for a prize!

After the entering period is over, the best three ideas that suit the Ridge Deli’s divine cuisine will be selected, and the rest will be left to voters in the community and beyond. On July 30, the winner will be announced.

The person who submitted the new name with the most votes will receive three nights of accommodation in a 2-bedroom suite. The two runners up will get $50 to the Deli to enjoy the wonderful food it has to offer.

The prizes are so close you can almost taste them! Get creative, and go.

Delicious dinners dished nightly at The Hungry Bear Restaurant

Lake Tahoe is known for many things: Its crystal cobalt water, sweeping Sierra backdrops, world class ski resorts, gaming and nightlife and … bears.

Around 300 of the creatures live around the Lake Tahoe Basin and in the Sierra. They are seldom seen, considered harmless and aside from their forays into dumpsters now and then, they are considered friendly neighbors. Practically everywhere you go, there’s a reminder of their presence in photos and wood carvings.

At The Ridge Tahoe, there’s even a restaurant in their honor, The Hungry Bear. Whether your plan to spend a week or are checked in for the quick ski weekend, you’re bound to work up a bruin-sized appetite. The Hungry Bear Restaurant has a number of delicious, savory and seasonal menu choices with true Sierra cuisine – simple food prepared perfectly with locally-fresh ingredients to complement the resort’s peaceful and homey vibe.

Open evenings for dinner, the restaurant, led by Executive Chef Stephen Moise, serves steak, seafood, chicken, pasta and a variety of appetizer and beverage choices. For the little ones — the bear cubs — there’s a children’s menu, plus a full array of desserts, coffees, and after dinner port wines and cognacs.

Reservations are encouraged. Call the concierge for current days and hours of operation at ex. 3150.

Many chef’s keep their cooking traditions a secret. Not Chef Moise. Part demonstration, part cooking lesson, guests are invited to sit in with him and the staff every Tuesday from 4 to 9 p.m. for an evening with the chef to learn how to prepare a three-course meal Sierra-style.

Dining is a major component during a vacation and while many suites include kitchens, The Ridge Tahoe gives guests the luxury to let someone else do the cooking. If you’re looking for something fast and light, there’s The Ridge Club Deli open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Deli offers a casual menu with waffles and bacon, homemade soups, made-to-order sandwiches, and fresh salads. You can dine in, have it boxed up to go or ordered for your room.
