Marathon week is starting next week. I am amazed at how this annual event has grown over the years. Marathon week is not just about running, it also involves biking, swimming, kayaking, standup paddle boarding, and now, speed golf. In addition, there are dinners and brunches. Whether you come to participate, support or view, there are plenty of options.
The Lake Tahoe Food and Wine Festival is happening September 30 – October 3. This is another event that keeps growing and gets more interesting. This year’s guest speakers include Elizabeth Falkner of Citizen Cake patisserie and Orson restaurant, Anthony Bourdain (No Reservations), and Chef Martin Yan. There will be an Epicurean Expo called ‘Beyond the Fork’ on Saturday from 1 pm – 6 pm at Harrah’s.
