We've come to that weird time of year where it certainly isn't summer anymore, but we still have a month or so to kill until the snow starts falling. Basically, there are two choices- wallow away at home hibernating until Thanksgiving or take advantage of the lack of tourists and have some fun in downtown Truckee. I compiled a list of restaurant happy hours to pass the time. Most of the establishments are experiencing some of the slowest times for business all year, and lucky for locals, there are awesome food and drink deals. Hopefully you're finally recovered from last weekend's wine walk!
