North Lake Tahoe launches Takeout Tahoe to support and promote regional restaurants
As cooler temperatures and capacity limitations impact restaurant operations, the North Tahoe destination offers critical support to local dining establishments.
NORTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The North Lake Tahoe Resort Association (NLTRA) recently launched Takeout Tahoe, an initiative to support and promote local restaurants through fall, winter and beyond. The campaign includes a downloadable guide to help visitors and locals navigate the 150+ restaurant options in the region, a North Tahoe EATS Facebook Page, and a contest element that will award restaurant gift cards to further support eating local.
“We recognize the innate need to keep North Lake Tahoe communities safe and local businesses open,” explained Jeffrey Hentz, CEO of the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association. “Our goal with the Takeout Tahoe campaign is to highlight the range of culinary options throughout the region and support local businesses as they continue to modify operations due to state guidance and cooler temperatures.”
The Takeout Tahoe Guide includes in-depth information about North Tahoe’s communities along with a listing of restaurants currently offering curbside pick-up. Throughout November and December, the NLTRA is awarding $150 in restaurant gift cards to one lucky winner, enter by submitting your restaurant receipt to one of two North Lake Tahoe Visitor Centers (located in Incline Village and Tahoe City).
The NLTRA recognizes that To-Go options mean extra waste. Included with all Takeout Tahoe promotional materials is an underlying theme that reinforces a Leave No Trace message. Businesses are asked to communicate the following with guests and patrons:
- Use proper receptacles and make sure the garbage ends up inside. If a trash bin is full, find another.
- Pack it in, pack it out — bring a reusable bag to store your waste.
- Be mindful about food storage — don’t store food in your car and adhere to trash regulations if you’re in a vacation rental. Use bear boxes and make sure to lock it.
