The Mother of All Weekends in Tahoe South
Mothers, where would we be without them? Mothers do so much, they put up with a lot and they’re officially recognized only one day a year. Remedy this injustice by treating mom to a weekend’s worth of celebrations to honor her endless patience and grace. Special Tahoe South events are scheduled with moms in mind.
Give the Gift of Song
Begin the weekend with a performance by the Tahoe Choir and Lake Tahoe Community College chorus when they present “A Special Mother’s Day Gift of Song” on Friday, May 6 at Lake Tahoe Community College’s Duke Theatre. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available prior to the performance.
Matriarchs that prefer more rock in their music can head to MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa for the Marshall Tucker Band on Saturday, May 7. Blending rock, rhythm and blues, jazz, country and gospel, the band is sure to liven up your Mother’s Day celebrations.
Visit the Old West
The Virginia and Truckee Railroad is offering a pre-season special just for mothers and their families during Mother’s Day Weekend, May 7-8. Hop aboard the diesel train in Carson City for a wild west ride to the Comstock-era boomtown of Virginia City. With tons of historic landmarks, sights and shopping, Virginia City is a great place to spend the afternoon. Every Mom receives a long stem rose as part of her journey. Buy tickets.
Celebrate with Bubbly at The Hungry Bear Restaurant
The Ridge Tahoe is popping bottles for Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 8. The Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch features several courses of delicious foods as sweet as mom.
The first course includes sweet ricotta and mascarpone stuffed creeps with spring berry compote followed by a second course of your choice: herb crusted Alaskan halibut, sweet potato and wild mushroom hash, spring peas and citrus jus; crab cake eggs benedict with cottage potatoes and Old Bay hollandaise; New York steak and eggs with cottage potatoes; or huevos rancheros with shrimp, refried beans and corn tortillas.
Heather’s Heavenly Dessert Buffet will cap off an eventful brunch.
Brunch is $40 per person and served 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Treat Mom this weekend to treatments at Elevation Spa.
Finish Off Strong
Regardless of what you choose for Mother’s Day, the Ridge Tahoe can take care of mom with spa packages, facial treatments and massage options. They’re great as a surprise and the perfect ending to a weekend just for mom.
Happy Mother’s Day from the Ridge Tahoe!
