In this week's blog: Michael Martin Murphey concert tickets now on sale, March Madness begins, Monthly 21 Tournament winners, St. Patrick's Day at the CVI, Mike's horses last weekend and more!
Michael Martin Murphy Concert Tickets on Sale: Tickets are on now on sale through our web site for the Michael Martin Murphy Concert on May 1 (thanks for your patience)! We've had so many requests to buy our concert tickets online that we finally made the move. Also, with more concerts this year and with the seating capacity of the Valley Sky Theatre being three times that of the Valley Ballroom, we couldn't keep operating out of the proverbial "cigar boxes" at the hotel desk. A tip when you order tickets: make sure that the zip code on your address matches the billing zip code for your credit card! Here's a link to our full schedule of concerts where you can watch for tickets going on sale for the remaining concerts and more concerts news coming soon!
NCAA Basketball March Madness: The ample seating and many flat screen HDTVs in our Cabaret Lounge and Bar Area – plus its convenient location just inside the casino entrance and adjacent to our Sports and Race Book – make it the perfect place to catch all the March Madness action. The Conference Tournaments continue through this weekend, "Selection Sunday" is Sunday afternoon and the NCAA Tournament 1st Round starts on Tuesday.
Monthly Blackjack Tournament Winners: Last night's monthly Blackjack Tournament paid a total of $1,525.00 and, as we do every month, all the entry fees and rebuys went into the prize pool. The top three finishers were Butch M.1st for $765.00, Richard L. 2nd for $460 and Paulina G 3rd for $300. Our next Monthly Blackjack Tournament is Tuesday, April 8.
