| June 27, 2013 | 0 Comments

The second full weekend of summer has tons of fun in store in and around Tahoe. If you’re not already here, point the car up the hill and hit the gas, because it’s going to be HOT in the valleys this weekend. Thankfully, it’ll be beautiful up here, perfect swimming weather is in the forecast. 

Here are a few reminders from us about what’s going on at The Lake and in Truckee this weekend. If you have an event to add, please do so in the comments. If you’d like a future event included, please email kyle@tahoequarterly.com to get it on here. Without futher ado:


Always a hit, Truckee Thursdays tonight features the musical stylings of Joe Bagale while Moody’s hosts JJ von Briesen at 8 p.m. As always, tons of vendors, drink specials and fun will be on tap in downtown.

At 8 p.m. tonight, Stateline’s Horizon Casino presents magician Alex Ramon. Ticket information is here.


Northstar California plans to offer a FREE 8:30 p.m. showing of “Tell It On The Mountain” a new documentary following a half-dozen hikers as they attempt to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail, which stretches from Mexico to Canada. The PCT runs through the Tahoe area, in addition to 33 Wilderness Areas, 24 National Forests, seven National and six state parks on its 2,663 mile route.

At 9 p.m., Bob Seger tribute band Night Moves plays a free show at the Crystal Bay Club.
