Let the games begin Tahoe U Blog summer weekend guide

It's all fun and games until summer is over, so enjoy it while you can! Everyone loves a little friendly competition especially if there's food and drink involved. More and more bars and restaurants are taking advantage of our beautiful backyard and adding your favorite summer vacation games to the experience. We rounded up the best spots to get your game on around the lake this weekend. The best news about playtime is that comfort is the main wardrobe requirement (score!).
