Next Concert is Free, The Point to Multiple Points, More

Free Concert in TJ's Corral
Free Concert and More:  The Davisson Brothers Band will be performing in TJ’s Corral from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.  on Saturday, August 27 as part of our 32nd Birthday Celebration and we invite everyone to attend and enjoy! The evening includes free popcorn and free ice cream from 6 to 7:30 plus $2 water and sodas and $5 draft beer.

Free cake and champagne will be served from 2 to 3 p.m. inside the CVI on August 27. We'll also be distributing free birthday t-shirts at random times throughout the day while supplies last, INN Club members will earn 4X points all day and we'll have drawings for up to $5,000 in the casino at 2, 4, 6 and 8 p.m.

When the CVI opened in 1984, a movie ticket was $2.50, a gallon of gas was $1.10, a Dodge RAM 50 Truck was $8,995 and the Space Shuttle Discovery took off on its maiden voyage.

Another Rockin’ Night in TJ’s Corral
The Eli Young Band Concert last Sunday was another Carson Valley country-rock experience unique to TJ’s Corral! The night-before-the-first-day-of-school concert was reviewed by former Bay Area journalist and current Tahoe Onstage copy chief Randy Hashagen with up-close pictorial images by Tim Parsons!  Read about it here.

Keep Your Boots On for the Randy Houser Concert  coming to TJ’s Corral on Thursday, September 8. OK to wear your “dirty old hat” also! Tickets start at $59 and they are available on our website, at the hotel desk, or by calling 775-783-6606.

What’s the Point? We all see the signs: 5X Points at this casino, 10X Points at that casino and even 20X Points when the stars align just right! What does it mean to YOU and how does it work here at CVI? Glad you asked!  Starting with the basics: As you play, your points balance builds based on the type of game you play, the amount you bet each time, and the amount of time you play. Pretty much the same everywhere. At the CVI it doesn’t matter if you win or lose. When you win, you’re actually playing with house money and you’re earning even more points “on us” so to speak. The value of these points and what they can be redeemed for is what matters to the player ‘cause there are two sides to this whole “point thing,” how you earn them, and how you redeem them. Simply put: 10X Points looks great on a marquee sign . . . but if it takes 1,000 points to earn $1 in value at Casino X, when it only takes 100 points to earn $1 in value at CVI, 10X Points at Casino X suddenly loses its luster.  We know how our points work and we share that info clearly on our website. We’ve "shopped" many of the "Casino X" locations to learn how their points work and . . . well, we’ll take the high road and say it’s a pretty darn good deal here at the CVI on a “regular” day and it really does mean more to you when we have a multiple points day, such as what we’re doing with 4X Points on Saturdays in August.  Bringing it all around: “Casino X” needs to run 5X Points just to match our base point days on reel slots . . . and when we offer 4X Points we’re running 20X better than the Casino X! Convert those extra points to dining and that means four times the food . . . use 'em for free play and you\ll enjoy more playing time, more excitement and more chances to win! So, that’s the Point!

Spaghetti & Meatballs
A Top-20 Famous Duo!
Sharkey’s Right in the Middle of Thursday Wine Walk! You kinda have to go right by Sharkey’s if you are participating in this week’s Thirsty Third Thursday Wine Walk in Gardnerville . . . so stop in and belly-up to the Silver Dollar Bar! You might even wolf down (vs. gobble up) one of our Bar Bites to re-energize yourself to walk to even more wine locations!   We like the possibilities with this month’s theme which is Famous Pairs. As you might expect, someone figured out how to rank the famous duos of all time and we are partial to #8 (Hamburgers and Fries) ‘cause you can order them up in the slider version at Sharkey’s Silver Dollar Bar and to #13 (Spaghetti & Meatballs)  ‘cause it’s the $7.99 Monday special in Sharkey’s Jackpot Café!
