Super Weekend, Valentine's Weekend and More at the Carson Valley Inn

In this week's blog we have information about our Spring Stag Golf Outing, this Saturday's Tailgate Party, Super Sunday happenings, February promotions, Fridays Game-On special, Valentine's Day, and two of our owner's horses running this week.

Spring Stag Golf Outing: All the information on our Spring Stag Golf Outing is now up on our web site. This traditional season-kickoff guy's golf weekend includes a Thursday optional practice round and evening reception, golf on Friday and Saturday at the two Genoa Lakes courses, a Saturday-night banquet with an abundance of raffle prizes, a tee prize package for every participant and more.  This is our 30th go at this event and anyone who has attended in the past will tell you it's a golf getaway you won't want to miss!

 Mike's Horses: As of post time for this blog (pun – get it!), two of CVI Owner Mike Pegram's horses are running this week. Hoppertunity runs in the 6th race at Santa Anita on Thursday and Secret Circle (a Preakness Stakes winner last November) is scheduled in Sunday's Palos Verdes race at Santa Anita. Remember, with horse racing, it's never for sure until the starting gates open!

Saturday Tailgate Party: We don't get a chance to use our outdoor Valley Sky Theatre much this time of year but we're cranking it up this Saturday for a Tailgate Party – all part of our Super Weekend festivities.  The fun runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday with food and drink specials, a chance to meet former NFL players, free live entertainment with After Dark and drawings – both outside during the party and in the casino at 4:30 p.m.

$5,000 Guaranteed Pay Out on $5 Parlay Card This Sunday: If you've been following our blog you know the "why," so we'll just remind you of the "what" and "how." We have $5,000 cash to give away this Sunday to the winner of our $5 Super Sunday Parlay.  There are 15 bets on the card including picking the winner and proposition bets. Whoever picks the most correctly out of 15 wins the $5,000 (ties split)! Play as many $5 cards as you like - entries are accepted until 3 p.m. on Sunday, February 2 during any hours the Sports and Race Book is open at the Carson Valley Inn or Bodines Casino. Complete contest details are available at the Inn's Sports and Race Book.

Lots of Places to Watch Sunday's Game: It'll be hard not to catch the big game action and all the associated commercials on Sunday with the HD big screen in the Cabaret Lounge and over 35 more HDTV flats screens in the Cabaret and casino bar area, table games area, CV Steak bar and poker room. Stop by and enjoy our $2 jumbo draft beer specials and don't forget our served-at-your-seat Bar Bites Snacks!

February Promotions Start in a Few Days: Our Cupid's Cash and Freeplay Giveways and other February promotions kickoff this Saturday. Lot's going on, as always!

Valentine's Day Dining and Special Weekend Package: Less than three weeks to go until Valentine's Day – falls on a Friday this year so we added an attractive 2-night Hotel Package! 

First let's cover dinner: Both CV Steak and Katie's are offering their regular menu plus specials on Valentine's Day. PLEASE . . . if you are planning dinner in CV Steak on Valentine's Day – and we hope you are – make your reservations NOW by calling 775-783-6650.  Our Valentine's Weekend Hotel Package (it's also President's Day weekend) offers accommodations for two nights with arrival on Friday or Saturday, a dining credit and more.

This Friday's Game Dinner Special: Our Game-On Fridays special in CV Steak this Friday is Wild Boar Tenderloin Medallions with a bourbon honey au jus and spiced grapes. As with all CV Steak entrees, the Game-On Friday special also includes tableside-tossed salad and your choice of potato - au gratin, baked, or a one-pound, twice-baked potato.
