Live at Lakeview: Week 5

It rained on my parade!

Not really, but sort of.

I had one of the most perfect days off planned: I was going to get up leisurely, drink coffee, edit some photos and write some blog posts, go run 11 miles, gorge myself on pizza at the Tahoe Chamber of Commerce Member Lunch at Basecamp Pizza in the Heavenly Village, get my toes done as a post long run treat at my favorite nail salon Perfectly Polished, and then head to the beach to do some recreating and listen to amazing tunes from Vokab Kompany for Live at Lakeview.  Does that not sound like the most perfect day ever?!?

I was sitting in the nail salon when out of nowhere, completely unbeknownst to all of us since the weather report called for no such thing as rain, the heavens opened up and it started pouring.  The bride sitting across from me made a face and was doing a very good job of not panicking.  I told her that it was good luck for it to rain on her wedding day.  I don’t think she believed me.  Regardless, I was stoked to hear that her photographer was my wedding photography idol in Tahoe: Brandi Schlagel of Indigo Photography.

So, Live at Lakeview was rained out.  I’m pretty sure the bride’s wedding was not, however.  Her wedding was scheduled for 6 she said and the skies definitely parted for her ceremony.


Instead, the Girls Drinking Club ended up at the Fresh Ketch happy hour, which happens Monday-Friday from 3 to 6 PM and offers $2 oysters and $5 glasses of house wine.

The Live at Lakeview party was moved to Tep’s Villa Roma but I was a bit worn out from the past two weeks so I decided to call it a night with a bottle of wine, my computer and the first season of Game of Thrones.  I know.  I am REALLY behind the times you guys.  That’s how crazy my life is.

Live at Lakeview is back on next week with The Polyrhythmics who will be serving up their awesome blend of modern afro-beat and syncopated, horn-driven funk.

Check out free music here in Tahoe South every Thursday from 4:30-8:30 PM at Lakeview Commons from June 20th-August 29th.  Please ride your bike and utilize the free bike valet or find plenty of parking at the SLT Parks and Recreation Department on Rufus Allen Blvd.  The proceeds of all sales of alcohol from the beer garden support the series and I encourage you to either imbibe in the garden or make a donation in one of the donation boxes around the Commons Area on the night you attend.  As always, Live at Lakeview is a free community event.  Please be aware of the following city ordinances in Lakeview Commons Park: no dogs, no outside alcohol and no smoking.

Can’t make the event?  Never fear!  Thanks to the support of Tahoe Production House and Stage It Live Video Cast, you can watch the live stream from home every Thursday night!  For more information on how to watch the live stream of the weekly Live at Lakeview Events, head to the official website.
