  • New owner takes reigns at Weekly | Staff mourns loss of one of its own

    By Katherine Hill on November 21, 2013
    The past week has brought heartbreaking and bittersweet changes to The Weekly magazine. Heartbreaking in the lost of our friend and colleague Joy Michiel, and bittersweet as the staff learned of her death as the new owner of The Weekly assumed the reigns – myself. Negotiations on the sale of The Weekly to me were finalized early last week and […]
  • Still rockin’ it

    By The Weekly on November 20, 2013
    New Riders of the Purple Sage There are many bands from back in the day that are still touring with their hits from the 60s and 70s, but if somehow you’ve missed crossing paths with the New Riders of the Purple Sage since their 2005 renaissance, then you need to understand something. This is not a band of tired, tie-dyed […]
  • Elegant Southern Style

    “The catfish is off the chart and tastes like New Orleans on a plate with a hint of spice and an amazing mélange of flavors.” It’s a tough choice when you go to Big Water Grille deciding what you like more; the cuisine or the view. I head in for a solo evening so I can sit, chat and taste […]
  • Wine for Thanksgiving

    By Barbara Keck on November 20, 2013
    Tahoe House on the West Shore offers everything but the turkey for Thanksgiving with advance orders, and its wine selection to go with Thanksgiving foods is as well thought out and varied as the Thanksgiving menu. I’d opt right away for a bottle of the Seaglass 2011 Monterey County Riesling. This is a great wine as an aperitif, light and […]
  • Winter Weather Outlook

    By Mark McLaughlin on November 20, 2013
    It’s that time of year again when weather prognosticators are peering into their tea leaves to try and discern what the Storm King has in store for Lake Tahoe ski resorts this winter. Long-range forecasts for 2014 are all over the map and to most professional meteorologists just a stab in the dark. Despite significant advances in computer modeling over […]
  • Why not?

    By Warren Miller on November 20, 2013
    In the Sun Valley Opera House in November of 1950, 13 people paid $1 to see my first feature-length ski film, “Deep and Light.” That meant that there were 337 empty seats. My income for the evening was 40 percent of that $13 or $4.20. After the show that night, I learned a couple of important lessons from the theater […]
  • Chicken Marsala

    By Chef David “Smitty” Smith on November 20, 2013
    Every year at this time I have to make my annual pilgrimage over to AAA to see how low I can get my auto insurance. Every year, I sit down with Allison and while she is trying to figure out the best policy for me, we talk cooking and recipes. Also, every year she tells me she will give me […]
