Climbing the Ladder Again in the Poker Room! The Poker Ladder is back for March, April, and May and this time it has even more “rungs.” Poker players accumulate points with all live play and any extra points from wheel spins. We’ll tally up the points and post the leaders each week so you know where you stand. After play on April 15, the top 40 point earners qualify for a $1500 Free Roll Tournament on April 22. At the end of May, we’ll post the final tally and the 50 top point earners for the three months qualify for drawings on June 3, 10, and 17 for another $1500 in total cash. It’s pretty simple and all the details – in a type size you can actually read – are posted in the Poker Room. And, as they say on those late night infomercials, “But Wait, There’s More!” Every Friday night from 5 to 10 PM and Saturdays from 1 to 8 PM the high-hand-of-the-hour will get to spin the wheel for points, meals and cash. Click here for more on our Poker Room promotions, tournaments (including a new Tuesday night Crazy Pineapple Tournament) and special games.

- Because We Feel Like Mentioning It
- Today is Old Stuff Day. To see how new and old can coexist, stop at Sharkey's Casino and take some time to browse the many pictures and other memorabilia on the walls. Lots of memories of old time Carson Valley scenes, people, and places.
- Today is also Banana Cream Pie Day. As luck would have it, we offer Banana Cream Pies in either the 6' or 10' size at the Katie's Bakery Counter, or order a slice for dessert while enjoying lunch or dinner in Katie's. Here's a look at all the take-some-home-today bakery items we offer at the Katie's Bakery Counter (caution, this list could be Overbearing to those who snack on veggies, fruit and unbuttered/unsalted popcorn).
- Thursday is National Anthem Day. Love her or leave her, here is a chance to again enjoy one of the most compelling recent renditions sung on our country’s largest stage by Lady Gaga!
- Friday is Grammar Day and Tuesday is Proofreading Day. Guess that means, at least grammatically, anything goes on the three days in-between.
