Waiting on Two $2,500 Winners

In this week's blog we have information about two people who have yet to claim the $5,000 in Super Sunday Parlay Prize Money, more on Mike's horses, Tuesday's Blackjack Tournament, Ladies' Night and more!

Mike's Horses: Two of Mike's horses ran last week . . . Hoppertunity won the 6th race at Santa Anita on Thursday and Secret Circle finished a close 2nd in Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 Palos Verdes Stakes when long shot Wild Dude rallied late to win by a neck, Coming up this week, Midnight Hawk is scheduled to run in Saturday's Grade 2 Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita. This race is an important prep for the Grade 1, $1 million Santa Anita Derby on April 5.

Ladies' Night Tonight: The hot seat winners at tonight's Ladies' Night festivities from 6 to 9 p.m. will receive a special vase with flowers, chocolate kisses and a scented candle – specially wrapped by Julia.  Deanna and Julie will be handing out a cute tin of CVI/Bodines mints for the first 150 ladies who show up - and 20 of these will also have Free play as a bonus!  Ladies Night Bingo games are at 6:45, 7:30 & 8:15 p.m. with the first 2 games "paying" $50 in Freeplay and the last game paying $100 Cash.

Our Monthly Blackjack Tournament is Tuesday, February 11. These tournaments are a low-risk opportunity to grab a decent cash prize and have some fun and laughs in the process! The premise is pretty simple: It's just $25 to get in, you're playing with tournament chips, all the entry fees are paid back in prize money and the top three finishers are usually sharing around $1,500! First place gets half the pot, 2nd receives 30% and the 3rd place finisher takes the remaining 20%. We figure that's a pretty good haul for just a $25 lay down. To enter, just stop by the pit on Tuesday, February 11 when we take sign ups between 5 and 6 p.m.

$5,000 Waiting on Two Winners of Super Sunday $5 Parlay Card: Super Bowl was a joy to some and a disappointment to many – seems we had lots of Broncos fans in house over the past weekend. There was a flurry of betting activity with many folks participating in the Super Sunday $5 Parlay Card.  As promised, the $5,000 was a guaranteed payout and it took most of Monday to figure out who won. We had two people who picked 12 of the 15 propositions correctly so they each have $2,500 coming. Like the lottery, we don't know who has those two winning cards. So, if you played a card and got 12 correct, stop by the Sports Book at either Carson Valley Inn or Bodines Casino and present your card to claim your winnings!

When Will Football Return!?!?!: Now that football is on its "never-short-enough" break, our Race and Sports Book is busy taking action on the many horse races leading up to the Triple Crown events, NBA and NCAA Basketball (March Madness starts March 18), NASCAR (the Daytona 500 kicks off the season on February 23), PGA Golf (The Masters starts April 10), NHL Hockey and more.  And if you really just can't wait for football, stop in and place a bet on who will win the 2015 College Football Playoff (formerly known as BCS) and who will win the 2015 Super Bowl!

Valentine's Day Dining Booking Fast: We took a look at the CV Steak Reservations book last night to check on Valentine's Day progress. As we speculated last week, many time slots are almost full so if you are planning dinner in CV Steak on Valentine's Day (why would you go anywhere else!) make your reservations NOW (like before you even finish reading this blog posting) by calling 775-783-6650.  As a reminder, both CV Steak and Katie's are offering their regular menu plus specials on Valentine's Day.  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.

Birds of Chicago in Concert: The Carson Valley Arts Council's Winter Concert Series includes Birds of Chicago in concert on Friday, February 28 at the CVIC Hall, just a 5 minute walk from the Carson Valley Inn. We have a very attractive two-night hotel package for this concert and you can arrive on Thursday or Friday, February 27 or 28.
