Show Your Love For Local Restaurants On #CATakeOutTuesday

By: Alex Silgalis

California Takeout Tuesday

As we’ve talked about in our earlier post – Tahoe Businesses Showing Love In Times Of Need – a BIG part of our local Tahoe economy is the service industry. Particularly, the restaurant business. Even though dining rooms are closed, it doesn’t mean the kitchens are too. If you’re in South Lake Tahoe, Meyers, or just at home, show your love this Tuesday by ordering take-out or delivery! To help wake up those taste buds, here’s an “appetizer” of some of the businesses that are open to taking your order today!
