CV Steak Open Days Expand, Hoppertunity This Saturday?

In this week's blog: CV Steak days expand, catch us at this Friday's Carson Valley Job Fair,  Michael Martin Murphy Concert hotel package added, more on Mike's horses with a Derby hopeful running Saturday, this week's entertainment, Ladies' Night prizes and more!

CV Steak Game Special, Open More Nights:
  • Sous Chef Patrick Pierce's Game-On Fridays special in CV Steak this Friday is Grilled Elk Medallions with a Brandy Cherry Demi - Two 3 oz. elk tenderloin medallions grilled and finished with the demi and sun-dried cherries, served with broccolini vegetable for $29.00. As with all CV Steak entrees, the Game-On Friday special also includes tableside-tossed salad, vegetable and your choice of potato - au gratin, baked, or a one-pound, twice-baked potato.
  • We told you in late December that we'd go back to 6-nights-a-week come spring. We'll, spring is here so back we go to Tuesday through Sunday nights in CV Steak! We're planning to go to 7-nights-a-week in the summer . . . and you can be sure we'll keep you posted in our weekly blog posting.
Mike's Horses – a 1st, a 2nd and a Saturday Run:
  • Two of Mike's horses ran at Santa Anita last Saturday. In the first race of the day, 3-year-old filly Lady Regina finished a solid 2nd in her first career start.  Secretsatmidnight won the 6th Race for 4-year-olds and up. Both horses were ridden by Martin Garcia who occasionally visits the Carson Valley Inn as Mike's guest.
  • We get questions as to why we don't include a blurb in this blog as to which horses will be running the coming weekend. Simplest answer: Decisions aren't usually finalized until after our blog is posted and, in horse racing, "things" change right up to post time. So, experience has taught us that in most cases it is best not to speculate! However . . .
  • . . . We are making an exception this week 'cause last we heard it looks like Kentucky Derby hopeful Hoppertunity may be running in this Saturday's Santa Anita Derby.

Join the 400 of us who are proud to work at the CVI!  Want to Be Part of the Heartbeat of the Carson Valley? Consider working at the Carson Valley Inn where it all happens! To find out more, visit us at the Carson  Valley Job Fair this Friday, April 4 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the CVIC Hall on Esmeralda Street in downtown Minden. Julie and Pat from our Human Resources Team will be there to help you get a feel for the culture of working at the Carson Valley Inn. You can check them out and they can get to know you. You might match up for one of our current openings or, who knows, with the peak employment season coming on, you'll already be "in the queue" as more openings become available.  Can't make it to the Job Fair this Friday? Check out our openings, benefits and other info on our Employment Page. Or, better yet, stop by our Human Resources office (please - not this Friday while we’re at the Job Fair) and let's chat in-person.  Come in the Hotel Entrance, turn left down the hallway and walk on in through the double doors. If Pat isn't right there to greet you, we'll find her or Julie pretty darn quickly!

Concerts News:
  • We've added a 2-Night Hotel Package for the May 1st Michael Martin Murphey concert with room, $70 in total Dining Credit and two Concert Tickets. Check it out!

  • We do know that many of you are waiting patiently for tickets to go on sale for the rest of our concerts and we're working on pinning down the details. We are shooting for 8-weeks out on most concerts and we'll be posting information on our full schedule of concerts page and making announcements in our Wednesday blog postings.
