College Basketball Galore, When Pi = Pie, New Randy Houser Album, More

New Randy Houser Album Out this Friday
For the second week in a row one of the artists scheduled to appear in TJ's Corral this year is releasing a new album. Randy Houser's (Sep. 8 in TJ's) new album "Fired Up" will be available starting this Friday featuring his recent hit "We Went."  

College Basketball Overload
College basketball junkies can enjoy just about nonstop action through March 20 as March Madness runs rampant! The Conference Championships play out through this weekend culminating in Selection Sunday when all the stars line up for the NCAA Tournament then the National Invitational Tournament (NIT), then the College Basketball Invitational (CBI), then the Postseason Tournament (CIT), then the reality of a long off season! There’s a brief day off on Monday, and the NCAA Tournament starts on Tuesday. For the really anxious fans who just can’t wait for Sunday’s Conference Championship games and the Selection Sunday show, we are trying to help you by having everyone set their clocks ahead one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday! That’s the best we could do!
Naturally you can watch and bet the college basketball action here at the CVI. Also on the board are Major League Baseball Exhibition Games, Horseracing, NBA Basketball, NHL Hockey, Sunday’s Good Sam 500 NASCAR Race at Phoenix International Raceway and the Masters coming up on April 7 – 10.

Hey GQ - Want Me? 
CVI Marketing Coordinator and sure-I'd-leave-CVI-to-be-a-GQ-model “Sellers” (like “Goose” or “Maverick” in Top Gun) shows off the gray polo shirt we’re giving away on Monday, March 14. You can collect a different color CVI Polo Shirt each Monday in March by earning 150 base points the same day. Be sure to use your INN Club card while playing in the casino and check at the Guest Services counter after you hit 150 points on Monday. Remember, you keep those 150 points for comps or Freeplay or for tickets to one of the concerts in TJ's Corral this year!

Free Cabaret Lounge Entertainment
Jonathon “JB” Barton is here tonight, The Voodoo Cowboys entertain Thursday through Saturday and George Pickard takes the stage Sunday through Wednesday. Playing together since 2009, the Voodoo Cowboys have appeared at most major casino venues in Nevada. Not the "cryin' in your beer" type country band, they are the life of the party with their dance-inducing, hard drivin' repertoire of country music and rock 'n' roll. The group has rocked crowds on numerous stages around the world, as well as sharing stages with such rock and country stars as David Nail, Little Texas, Ron Keel, Toby Keith and many more.

Notable Days This Week
Today is Crabmeat Day. Why not stop by CV Steak tonight and enjoy the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake appetizer served with ground mustard sauce . . . Or, order the Sampler Platter which includes shrimp, crab cake, warm spinach dip and ahi tuna - we serve it in two sizes, for two people or four people!
Thursday is Popcorn Lovers Day. We like popcorn, so we just had to let everyone know about this! Also, if you read the information at the link, you’ll deduce that just about anyone can start their own “Day” for just about any reason. Anyway, enjoy some popcorn!
Monday is International Ask A Question Day which has us wondering why such a day is necessary (hint: has to do with Einstein)? Who started it? How is it usually celebrated? And this one is really nagging, why is there both an International Ask A Question Day and an Ask a Stupid Question Day (this one is in September)?  On the subject, what questions do you have about the Carson Valley Inn? Click here to send us an email and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.
Monday is also Pi Day which is "celebrated" every year on March 14 based on a movement started at a west coast "Exploratorium." However, since Pi, carried out to enough places would fill this blog, and since anything connected with an Exploratorium scares us, we just added another letter(e) and think of this day as yet another reason to eat pie! And, as luck would have it, we have plenty of pies for sale at the Katie's Bakery Counter or enjoy them by-the-slice while dining in Katie's.
