Rocking at Lakeside
We are in the dog days of summer and sometimes that puts me in a funk. Whats the best way to get over that funk? Go to a punk rock/ rock show. Last night our IT guy's band Cohesion played at Lakeside in Tahoe City. Keep in mind it was a Tuesday night so to be honest I was quite impressed with the turn out. Cohesion played first, followed by the Punk Rock band Anit- Panti from South Lake, they were followed by the Drinking Machine Guns, who you should know if you have been around the lake for a while. Cohesion started it off with a new song and it got the crowd rocking. Aaron Gaines was there in full support with his own custom made band t-shirt, our IT guys last name is Hall so Aaron made a shirt that said "Hall Pass". So we dubbed Cohesion "Hall Pass" for the night.
All the bands had two "superfans" if you will, one was a guy who matched his camero that was out front and the other was Laddie, for those who know, know Laddie. These two were front and center and rocking out pretty much the whole time. I have to say it was also nice to see some of the same people that use to work at Pierce Street behind the bar at Lakeside, here's to Pam, Jumbo and Jack!
Lakeside has three of the four things that make it a nice place to play a show, good sound, beer and late night food but no liquor license for the hard stuff. Now what kind of a rock show it it when Jack Daniel's and Jim Beam are not present?

Porters 2008 Boat Tour
We had a few captains, one that was actually navigating the Tahoe Gal, and another whom is our fearless leader, Chappy. We had ladies in lovely 70’s evening attire with furs coats, heels and gold clutches, we had gentlemen in sweaters and action slacks, I do have to say that Burton's Nor Cal rep Trevor Patterson had on a wonderful mustard yellow sweater, and needless to say there were a few Hawaiian shirts and boat shoes! Michelle Parker who is on the Porters team as well as the K2 skis team and Orage was there with some very stylish Vans boat shoes. The outfits of the evening went to Lars our web guy who showed up with two outfits and Aaron Gaines, our warehouse manager who showed up with three things! Notice how I didn’t say three outfits, take a gander at the pictures below and see if you can figure it out.
The Tahoe Gal crew put on a great party for us, the food was great and bartender was doing it right. Chappy brought his computer so we could have some Love Boat era tunes and once the alcohol started to take effect the grooving dance moves started to pop up. At the end of our three hour tour most of us still had sea legs as we exited the boat but that didn’t stop us from heading to our after party at Lakeside Pizza in Tahoe City, formerly known as Pierce Street. Do not be fooled by the new name as it is also a night club and they are doing it right there. With free keg of CL smooth and beats to make you move there was no stopping the Love Boat crew. A few left early as they did most of their drinking on the boat, others stayed to get their dance on and others stayed even later. Rumor has that the club locked the doors and Chappy and a few ladies stayed and dance until three in the morning.
I do have to say the Porters Crew knows how to party and I think I speak for all of us when I say thanks to Kelly and Chap!
