The dance clubs in South Lake Tahoe will continue to do it big this weekend – MontBleu’s Opal and Blue night clubs will feature the hottest tracks in the highest quality environment while Vex will be hopping as big and bold as ever. If you’ve got the itch to shake a tail feather, they’ve got you covered!

Check out the longest running show in Tahoe at Horizon Casino’s Carnival Cabaret. Let’s just get it out there – there are no words to describe the cabaret… it defies words, other than to say that it is something that you simply have to see before you leave the South Shore of Tahoe.

With drink specials, food specials, and nightlife exploding all over South Lake Tahoe, there will be very little down time for the bored. Dare we say it… boredom just can’t be penciled in this week! Best of luck out there, and enjoy South Lake Tahoe!

Everybody is invited!
