Casa Baeza (10010 Bridge St; Truckee) Because Casa Stark is so empty (huh... ), check out Casa Baeza: a Truckee-area gem that features a 12-seat bar manned by one of the Baeza brothers, who'll pour you 100+ tequilas, super-strong margs (in glasses with cactus handles!! Caliente (8791 N Lake Blvd; Kings Beach) This Tex-Mex retreat in Kings Beach features one of the best rooftop patios in all of Tahoe-dom, plus is home to the 64oz El Campeon Margarita, which features this totally normal menu description: "Years ago, this shack was called 'The Stop' and our friends would dance with their shirts off at 6 a.m. Gar Woods Grill & Pier (5000 N Lake Blvd; Carnelian Bay) Since it's easily the most alcoholic drink in the LT, you can only order two of Gar Woods' Rock Hard Woody, likely because it features 151, light rum, peach schnapps, juices, sweet and sour, and TWO MORE 151 SHOTS FLOATED ON TOP. (475 N Lake Blvd; Tahoe City) Brewed upstairs in their Tahoe City brewpub, beer at the year-old TMBC actually uses the crystal blue lake water in 18 different offerings (some seasonal, some limited-release), including four (Paddleboard Pale Ale, Saison Savourese, Local Lager, and Sugar Pine Porter) that've won awards in West Coast brewing competitions.
There are exactly three reasons to order their Cock-tail: 1) it has Wild Turkey, 151, AND George Dickel in it, 2) if you order it after drinking the Chupacabra and Wet Woody (you've gotta have receipts to prove it), they'll give it to you for 95 cents, plus give you a free shot of Fireball, and 3) more mini flags!!
