Food Trucks this Weekend, Eddie Money Info, June Events Listings, More

Eddie Tickets the Easy Way: The Boys and Girls Club Board members are staffing a "booth" this weekend at two community events so that you can pick up your Eddie Money Concert tickets in-person: the Community Concert in Minden Park this Friday evening and then again at the Food Truck Festival at the CVI on Saturday.  Speaking of Eddie Money . . . he was a New York City Police Officer for two years before moving to Berkeley, California in 1968 where he began performing at local clubs (remember that question we posed in last week's blog posting?). Next week, we'll tell you how this concert is financially structured to make it the largest fundraiser of the year for the Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada Carson Valley Branch.

Food Trucks this Saturday: Cold beer, hot food and decadent desserts are all on the menu at the Carson Valley Food Truck Festival this Saturday in the Carson Valley Inn north parking lot and TJ's Corral. Foodies will enjoy everything from gourmet specialties to all-American standards plus desserts and other treats. Among the scheduled participants are Battle Born, Brothers BBQ, Bubba Bob's, Hot Dog Rod, Island Ice, Los Caporales, Shanghai Express, Shalala Ice Cream Truck, St. Lawrence Pizza, Nevada Nosh Food Truck, Taster's Paradise and more plus Goodi's Fresh Squeezed Lemonade!
  • Our outside bars will be selling cold beer, wine, sodas and water and we'll have two shaded eating areas with tables and chairs, of course!
  • The Blues Monsters will be providing Free Entertainment on the TJ's Corral stage from 1 to 3 p.m. and again from 5 to 7 p.m.
  • To sweeten the pot, drawing tickets will be distributed randomly at the Food Truck Festival for drawings inside the casino at 3, 5, 7 and 9 p.m. for up to $5,000 Cash!
June Events: There's quite a lot coming up at and around the Carson Valley Inn during June and we've assembled a list of events you may want to mark on your calendar. Let us know if you find these lists useful.
