Stay tuned for Saturday's game as well as Brazil and Netherlands fight for third place. Come to Gar Woods for both as we cheer on the last of the teams with a Wet Woody in hand!

Oi! (Hello in Portuguese) Who is ready for the World Cup? We are looking forward to USA kicking the Woody out of soccer this year! Not to mention our 80'' TV in the bar and lounge isn't hard to watch sporting events on. The following is the opening game on Thursday through Sunday. Stay tuned as we will be the weekly World Cup schedule so you can know what time to your favorite restaurant on the Lake. Gooooo USA!
Happy Memorial Day from Tahoe North! This is one of our favorite weekends of the year; we get to share our favored mountain town with tourists that visit from near and far, everyone is happy, the beer is cold and summer is in arm's distance. More importantly, we extend our gratitude to all those who have served our country and are the true cornerstones of America. Today we celebrate them. Here at Gar Woods we would also like to extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends who lost their most loved and far to young people in the Isla Vista shooting.
Below are some dreamy photos of Tahoe North. If we missed you this weekend, we hope to see you very soon (these photos should be a big incentive.)

I am the Earth And the Earth is me. Each blade of grass, Each honey tree, Each bit of mud, And stick and stone Is blood and muscle, Skin and bone.
And just as I Need every bit Of me to make My body fit, So Earth needs Grass and stone and tree And things that grow here Naturally.
That’s why we Celebrate this day. That’s why across The world we say: As long as life, As dear, as free, I am the Earth And the Earth is me.

On Saturday March 1, only the bravest of the brave plunged into freezing cold 39 degree Lake Tahoe to vie for the first place spot in the annual Polar Bear Swim. A grueling 250 meters later it appeared as though the race that mattered most to the swimmers was the one that landed them in the 104 degree hot tubs. Congratulations to all of those who participated! Visit our Facebook page to view the full album of photos. See you next year, polar bears!
March 1st, 2014 marks the 25th Annual Polar Bear Swim at Gar Woods Grill & Pier. Hundreds line the pier and deck at Gar Woods in Carnelian Bay, to watch hardy souls brave the frigid water of Lake Tahoe. Brrrrrr.
