Eli Young Concert, Davisson Brothers Coming Back, Beer, More

Eli Young Band Concert August 14:  ACM, CMA, Grammys – The Eli Young Band has had songs nominated by all three of these prestigious organizations and more. Above we feature their #1 hit "Even If It Breaks Your Heart" which brought them numerous nominations in both 2012 and 2013.  The EYB will be performing this song along with their other top 10 hits plus new releases in TJ’s Corral on Sunday, August 14 and we hope you’ll be joining us. Tickets start at $49 and they are available on our website, at the hotel desk or by calling 775-783-6606. 

Davisson Brothers Coming Back!!  And they’ll be rocking the TJ’s Corral stage as part of our 32nd Birthday Celebration on Saturday, August 27! Their appearance is free as our birthday gift to the many customers who have called, written, posted on social media, emailed and otherwise screamed out, “PLEASE BRING THEM BACK!”  We'll also have plenty going on inside the casino and all the details are on our website.

The Temptations Review Last Saturday in TJ's Corral

The Temptations Review last Saturday night was another incredible night in TJ’s Corral. Dennis Edwards led 80 minutes of steadily building nostalgia that had the younger people in the audience complaining about the older folks upfront dancing and blocking their view! Our friends at Tahoe Onstage did another fine verbal and pictorial review that pretty well tells the story.

Jackpot Firestorm! Whatever we said in last Wednesday’s blog triggered a firestorm of jackpots. Last Thursday we had two $5 Wheel of Fortune winners:  Allen D. for $10,000 and Jeff H. for $5,045. Later that evening, Gary pocketed $97,704 when he hit our Penny Progressive Jackpot. We figured that should be about it for the week, but as Steve Martin used to say, “But Nooooo!” The very next day Heather R. won $27,438 when she hit the Major Jackpot on the new Buffalo Stampede video slot.  These plus over four dozen more “under the radar but not small” jackpots in excess of $1,000 made it a very good week to be playing slots at the CVI.

Are You a Ballot Box Stuffer? We certainly hope not because it’s definitely not something we advocate. So, consider this a reminder and if you care to interpret it as such, a gentle nudge if you are a fan of the Carson Valley Inn or Sharkey’s Casino:  The Record Courier opened up voting today for the Best of Carson Valley 2016.  They have made it quite easy to vote online and we hope you’ll give us a positive nod in the many various categories where you’ll see our restaurants, bars and casino listed.

Want One of These Signs? The Nevada Department of Transportation is making it easy for you – they’re having a free raffle to give away four of these iconic lone-miner signs as they gear up to replace them. You can enter online, by calling 775- 888-7000 or by direct messaging through the NDOT Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Draft Beer on Sharkey's Silver Dollar Bar!
Today is Watermelon Day. Watch out for seedy characters – like people who write casino blogs! Thursday is International Beer Day. Domestic, imported, whatever. Just honor the day by drinking beer! And we have plenty of beer choices throughout the Carson Valley Inn, Bodines Casino, and Sharkey’s Casino. Saturday is Root Beer Float Day. We are just mentioning this because it has the word “Beer.”  Sunday is India Pale Ale Day. Hmm, I think we’re fixated on the subject! Tuesday is Book Lovers Day . . . The perfect day to read a book about beer!
