A Message from TG Sheppard, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and More

TG Sheppard Invites You to CVI
TG Sheppard sent us this short video a few days ago inviting everyone to join him and  his special guest and wife Kelly Lang at his upcoming concert in the Valley Ballroom on Saturday night, November 12. Tickets are $25 and are available at the hotel desk or by calling 775-783-6606. Our suggestion: make it a weekend with our special 2-night TG Sheppard hotel package which includes tickets for TG’s Concert and $50 towards your CVI restaurant dining. All the details are at this link.

I have Mystical Powers and I'm Here To Help You: We're not sure what type of creatures or characters you'll run into on Monday at the CVI as our employees are welcome to come to work in costume and take part in our annual Employee Halloween Costume Contest. Unlike the majestic beauty displayed by Bonnie Cosgrove during Halloween 2015, sometimes these costumes can be somewhat scary! To help soothe any potential trauma, we’re offering all of our INN Club members 5X Points all 24 hours of October 31st!

Leave the Cooking to Us on Thanksgiving: 
  • Our Thanksgiving Dinner to Go for up to Ten is back this year  . . . includes a fully-cooked 18-20 pound turkey plus all the trimmings - mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, green beans amandine, cranberry sauce, a pumpkin pie, rolls and butter all for just $89.00 plus tax. For more information or to order, check at the Katie's cashier counter or call 775-783-6664 after noon today and ask for the Katie's supervisor. We are taking a limited number of orders so please don't miss out! 
  • Thanksgiving Dinner Specials will be served in CV Steak and Katie's on Thursday, November 24th. Watch our blog next week for Thanksgiving menus, dinner specials and hours.
A Man Walks Into a Bar and the Bartender Says . . . Actually, you can finish this one if you’d like ‘cause we are looking for a casino bartender! You can get all of the information on this position and the other open positions at the CVI on the employment page on our website.

Put these on your calendar:
  • Christmas Comedy: Sister’s Christmas Catechism comes to the Valley Ballroom Thursday and Friday, December 1 and 2  . . . Tickets are $22 and are available at the hotel desk or you can order by phone at 775-783-6606.
  • KTVN Share Your Christmas Community Food Drive: Mark it down for Friday, December 9 at the entrance to our RV Park. More details next week.
  • Eagles and Ag: The Carson Valley Chamber got together with the local ranching community and moved this event three weeks earlier to January 27 - 29 to increase the eagle and raptor sighting odds.  Our friends at the Chamber said the details are just about finalized and we'll put a link in our blog as soon as we have the info.
  • Annual CVI Clay Shooting Weekend: Flyers and entry forms will be out very soon - but for now circle February 23 – 25, 2017 for two days of clay shooting and plenty of food and fun.
Sports and Race Book:
  • On the Board: This week you can bet the World Series (Cleveland Indians vs. Chicago Cubs), NFL and NCAA Football, NBA Basketball, NHL Hockey, and the Sunday Goody's Fast Relief 500 NASCAR race.  Also on the board: futures bets on who will win the NBA Championship, NCAA Football Championship and the February, 2017 Super Bowl.
  • The PRO PK’EM Parlay Progressive is now at $3477– pick all 15 NFL games straight up on the $5 card and it’s yours!
  • Chatter Around the Sportsbook with Mike and Allen:
    • Last Week: Allen liked the Kansas City Chiefs (at -6½) to cover against the New Orleans Saints. The Chiefs won by six so we had to put a tic mark in the "lost this one" column for Allen. Mike said take West Virginia (-5½) over TCU and the Mountaineers covered easily. He also liked 1-5 Buffalo to beat the spread against the favored-by-22 Northern Illinois. Mike suffered his first "defeat" in the last three weeks as Northern Illinois won by 37!
    • This Week: Allen really likes the Raiders against Tampa Bay in this “pick ‘em” game. Two reasons: they’ve been doing great on the road and they stayed in Florida all of this last week after beating Jacksonville last Sunday. Embarrassed by his first loss, Mike is trying to hide from the spotlight this week with two obscure picks. He likes favorite Kansas State (-6½)  over Iowa State and he projects the underdog Connecticut will cover against East Carolina who is favored by seven.
Free Entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge:  Bill Wharton entertains tonight, The Blues Monsters are here Thursday through Saturday, we show NFL Football on the Big Screen in the Cabaret on Sunday and Monday nights and Steve Lord performs next Tuesday and Wednesday.  The Blues Monsters is a popular red-hot rockin' blues band from the North Lake Tahoe and Reno area.
