Featured Food Vendors:

FiftyFifty Brewing Co.
At FiftyFifty Brewing Co. we are proud to do what we can to reduce our carbon footprint and focus on sustainability. Here are some of the ways we are doing that, and we are always looking to do more:

  • 100% Compostable to-go containers and cups.
  • All spent grain from the brewing process is donated to a local ranch for livestock feed.
  • All of our beef is 100% Natural.
  • We donate all of our used fryer oil to be turned into Bio-Diesel fuel.
  • We have custom designed a new grant for our Brewhouse that greatly reduces the amount of waste from our brewing process, and helps to keep our local sanitation plant cleaner.
  • We are proud to only serve Truckee tap water, and no bottled water. No lemon required!

Morgan’s Lobster Shack & Fish Market
The idea behind Morgan’s was to bring the freshest seafood and produce available to the Lake Tahoe area. With fresh fish arriving almost daily and using locally grown produce when in season you’ll be sure to find something new and delicious. We missed the traditional east coast fare, lobster rolls, fried clams, and haddock, and wanted to share the love for these things with the west coast.

We will bring you the best of the East Coast recipes with a touch of the West Coast! Our team follows the guidelines of the Monterey Bay Aquarium in support of sustainable seafood use. We serve fresh, organic, locally sourced products whenever possible.

Morgan’s Lobster Shack & Fish Market coming soon to Reno’s midtown. We will have the same great menu, with some great additions, an Oyster Bar and a full bar.

Additional Food Options

Additional food and beverage options, including alcohol, will also be available for purchase. Guests may also bring in their own picnic to enjoy the concert, along with chairs and blankets, but please, low-back chairs only.

Mailbox Cluster Units in Tahoe Donner

Rural mail delivery within the older subdivisions was made available decades ago in the Truckee region. At that time, the United States Postal Service (USPS) purchased and installed remote mailbox cluster locations in Tahoe Donner at the approval of the association. During those years, the mailboxes were considered federal property and the USPS was responsible for the maintenance and replacement of the boxes. In Tahoe Donner’s situation, the USPS determined that they can no longer get replacement parts on the old cluster boxes and that future replacement of the units is the subdivision’s responsibility. This comes out of the growing homeowner association dynamic in the nation where new developments are now required to construct mailbox clusters for all units in the subdivision where rural carrier service is established. The USPS will not allow adding additional cluster boxes to address demand due to union agreements with the carriers which requires mail to be in sequential order. Thus we cannot simply add a couple boxes on the end of each location. Tahoe Donner will have to build and purchase approximately 6,500 cluster box units to address the overall issue including new service requests. As such, several years ago Tahoe Donner prioritized regular replacement of select units every year in the Reserve Replacement Fund to address identified cluster box issues as well as the larger project as described above. The General Plan Committee is currently discussing the large project for prioritization and implementation in the very near future.

While this long-term project is prioritized and planned, Tahoe Donner has established a short-term resolution through improved maintenance and communication with members who currently have mail service at the cluster box units. Members can now report cluster box maintenance issues to clusterbox@tahoedonner.com. Tahoe Donner will coordinate access to the respective cluster box unit with the USPS and then perform appropriate maintenance including repair and/or replacement of the entire unit. The USPS will facilitate access into the unit, removal of the mail, and then replacement of the mail.

Mailbox Cluster Unit FAQs

  • What is going on with the existing units which are currently out of order? The USPS has identified 15-20 possible units that match the existing cluster boxes which are being made available to Tahoe Donner to replace boxes in the short term in lieu of the above issue. They are tentatively scheduled to arrive in Truckee by the beginning of July. Tahoe Donner and USPS will identify any further units that need box replacement as opposed to pedestal replacement and prioritize accordingly. Tahoe Donner has identified with the help of USPS pedestal replacement provider and ordered enough to address the issues at the Northwoods and Northwoods location where the boxes are still in working order, but the pedestals need to be replaced to bring them back into operation. They are tentatively scheduled to arrive at Tahoe Donner by the end of June. Upon delivery, Tahoe Donner will follow new procedures established to install new pedestals on the old units within a week of delivery.
  • How do I get a mailbox in the cluster box units located in Tahoe Donner? To apply for mail delivery for a Tahoe Donner address, the member must request delivery at the United States Postal Service Truckee Downtown office located on Jibboom Street. The USPS will determine if there is an open location for the Tahoe Donner address. If the USPS determines there is space, the USPS will issue key and begin delivery at the respective box location.
  • Why can’t I get a mailbox unit? The USPS may determine that there is not an open location for the Tahoe Donner address, thus they will deny the request for mail delivery. The member can then request a P.O. Box for mail delivery, and/or revisit periodically to see if an appropriate space opens.
  • Who is responsible for the maintenance and replacement of the units? Tahoe Donner is now responsible for the maintenance and replacement of the cluster box units. For maintenance-related reports, email clusterbox@tahoedonner.com.  Please identify: name of person reporting, day time phone number, cluster location, unit number, issue, and if possible, attach photo of the unit. This will help to address the reported issue.
  • Who do I contact to report a maintenance issue? For maintenance-related reports, email clusterbox@tahoedonner.com. Please identify: name of person reporting, day time phone number, cluster location, unit number, issue, and if possible, attach photo of the unit. This will help to address the reported issue.
  • What is the long-term plan for the cluster box units in Tahoe Donner? Several years ago Tahoe Donner prioritized regular replacement of select units every year in the Reserve Replacement Fund to address identified cluster box issues as well as the larger project as described above. The General Plan Committee is currently discussing the large project for prioritization and implementation in the very near future.
