Additional hits include "She Cranks My Tractor," "Wild in Your Smile" and the recently released "Where It's At."

Back to Eddie Money . . . his hits included "Two Tickets To Paradise," "Baby Hold On," "Walk On Water," "Think I'm In Love," "Shakin," and more good ole' rock and roll!
- Speaking of letting our blog readers know first: B.J. Thomas was signed yesterday for a concert in TJ's Corral on Thursday, July 10. We'll have more on our website soon . . . and we promise this is not "Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song!!"
- Tickets are also on sale through our web site for the Michael Martin Murphy Concert on Thursday, May 1 and the Oak Ridge Boys Concert on Thursday, May 15.
- Be sure to also check our full schedule of concerts page . . . and watch our Wednesday-morning blog postings for ticket release dates for the Chris Young Concert on August 2 and the Charlie Daniels Band Concert on August 29.
- Sometimes the news is that there is no new news. Secret Circle was a last minute "scratch" in last week's Count Fleet Sprint Handicap at Oaklawn Park in Arkansas.
- Midnight Hawk is a likely entrant in this Saturday's Grade 3, $500,000 Illinois Derby and Hoppertunity is still targeted to run in the Kentucky Derby on May 3. BUT, as Secret Circle will tell you and them – "ya never know" till the last minute!
A Great Idea for Mother's Day or Father's Day: Have a mother, father, son, daughter, grandma or grandpa who lives out of the area? How about an aunt, uncle, niece or nephew? Invite them to Minden for Mother's Day or Father's Day! We have special packages available for both of these weekends. Mother's Day includes two nights and a food credit. Father's Day includes two nights, food credit, golf and a sleeve of golf balls.
Just Gotta Remind You Department:
- Easter Sunday Dinner Specials and Reservations: CV Steak is offering two Easter Dinner Specials and all the regular menu items on Sunday, April 20. We still have a few prime reservation times available for Easter Sunday. However, Easter reservations are no time to practice the "If it weren't for the last minute, I wouldn't get anything done" theory 'cause your family will not be happy with you. So, call CV Steak at 775-783-6650 today!
- Sous Chef Patrick Pierce's Game-On Fridays special in CV Steak this Friday is Grilled Eye of Lamb Chop with cabernet lamb jus for $28.00. 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.
