Of course, the proof is in the flavor and the, well, high proof. But the result is an incredibly smooth spirit — and we’re not the only people who think so. Tahoe Blue has won nearly a dozen major awards in the last year alone, including first place at New York’s prestigious Ultimate Spirits Challenge, beating Belvedere and Chopin for honors in the unflavored vodka category. Sip it at the bar at Northstar and other Tahoe resorts, or pick up a bottle at Bay Area stores, including Andronico’s, Bianchini’s and BevMo.

These gentlemen and ladies, and undoubtedly ragamuffins and scoundrels, are all part of the 750 authentically-dressed actors, who people the streets of Charles Dickens’ London, at the upcoming Great Dickens Christmas Fair & Victorian Holiday Party, (This event, opening November 23, is held in three acres of old-world exhibit halls in San Francisco’s legendary Cow Palace — which have been remade into the winding lanes, treasure-laden shops, pubs, tearooms, restaurants, music halls and stages of 19th Century Victorian London.)

After Sunday’s 45-42 overtime win over the Browns, like the prior three games of 2018 showed, we still don’t know which Carr the Raiders have as their quarterback this season. He threw two more interceptions in Week 4, giving him sole possession of first place in the NFL with seven picks. He also threw four touchdowns, three in the second half, and eclipsed 400 passing yards (35-for-58 with 437 passing yards against Cleveland) for the third time in his 66-game career. The Raiders don’t care that Carr’s true 2018 identity is to be determined. All that matters for now in Raider land is they probably saved their season by avoiding a catastrophic 0-4 start. They did so behind the right arm of their $125 million man, too, even if he hit a couple roadblocks along the way.
