Coach Polian at CVI, Could Job's Perk Influence the Election?, Sportsbook Picks, More

Blitz Lunch with Coach Polian Monday:
Nevada Wolf Pack football coach Brian Polian will be here at the CVI for one of his four 2016 Blitz Lunches on Monday, October 24 and all area Wolf Pack fans are invited to attend! Coach will be sharing information about the state of the Nevada football program and showing film from Nevada’s homecoming game this Saturday against the Wyoming Cowboys. His candor, openness and specialized game film combine for an interesting and enlightening program. The buffet lunch is $20 per person in the Valley Ballroom - the doors open at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins at noon. No advance reservations are necessary.

TG Sheppard in 3 Weeks:
T.G. Sheppard's first commercial album in over 13 years "Legendary Friends & Country Duets" was released about a year ago featuring duets with some of music's biggest icons. The four minute video above, shot during the recording of TG’s duet with the Oak Ridge Boys singing “Down On My Knees,”  includes a light-hearted exchange between TG and William Lee Golden of the Oaks bantering about which artist provokes the most back stage pass requests from the female fans! TG Sheppard and his special guest, wife Kelly Lang, returns for a special acoustic 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. A special 2-night hotel package is also available that includes tickets for TJ’s Concert. All the details are at this link.

Walk Inside to Influence Others' Opinions!
Could Job's Perk Influence the Upcoming Election? 
It's a possibility . . . Follow through on our sometimes sketchy blog writers' logic: according to a study cited in this article, coffee can make one more susceptible to persuasion. Therefore, if you have a friend, relative or neighbor who doesn't lean the same way as you politically, whether about a candidate or an issue, offer to buy him or her a cup of coffee in Job's Perk. Use your friendliest and most gentle persuasion skills and you may just be successful. Do us a favor if you find this works: before the caffeine buzz wears off, drop a hint they spend a few minutes trying their luck in the casino – perhaps on the Penny Progressive. If they win, you’ll be the hero. If they don’t win, you can blame it on the coffee!

Sports and Race Book:
  • On the Board: This week you can bet the American League (Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Bluejays) and National League (Chicago Cubs vs. Los Angeles Dodgers) Championship Series, NFL and NCAA Football, NBA Basketball (season starts Tuesday, October 25), NHL Hockey, the WNBA Finals (Minnesota Lynx vs. Los Angeles Sparks) and Sunday’s Alabama 500 NASCAR race.  Also on the board: futures bets on who will win the World Series, the NCAA Football Championship, the  Super Bowl and the 2017 NBA Championship.
  • The PRO PK’EM Parlay Progressive is now at $3368 – pick all 15 NFL games straight up on the $5 card and it’s yours!
  • Chatter Around the Sportsbook with Mike & Alan (where did Jim go?):
    • Last Week: Jim liked the Raiders at home against the Chiefs for last Sunday. They didn’t cover and they didn’t win so Jim got booted downstairs to the poker room because we just don’t stand for one of our guys getting a pick wrong! Mike said give the points and take these favorites – Nebraska over Indiana (they covered) and Florida to top Missouri (Florida covered twice over). Mike is now 4-0 over the last two weeks..
    • Mike looked closely at 13th ranked and undefeated West Virginia Mountaineers (-5½) hosting the 4-2 TCU Horned Frogs and he says take the favorite at home. He also espoused on his “when two less-than-stellar-teams play each other” theory that when there is a large point spread, usually take the underdog. So, he likes the 1-5 Buffalo Bulls to be to beat the spread against the favored-by-22 Northern Illinois Huskies (1-6). Alan, who jumped in for Jim, likes the “they are starting to come together” Kansas City Chiefs (-6½) to cover against the “my what a porous defense” New Orleans Saints.    
A Few Tidbits:
  • She’s Coming Back so mark your certain-to-be-busy holiday calendar for Sister’s Christmas Catechism show on 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.
  • Thursday is Suspender’s Day (just try to buy ‘em around here!) which we share because it is the perfect questionably useful info for Information Overload Day on the same day. On a more pertinent tone, Thursday is also Waiter’s Day so if you’re dining in CV Steak or Katie’s, please give an extra nod of appreciation to your server as it often is a tough job.
  • Friday is Apple Day – think Apple Pie in Katie’s!!
  • Tuesday is World Pasta Day - not to be confused with National Pasta Day which was last Wednesday (we have no idea why they are not on the same day). Anyway, we suggest you satisfy your appetite without pasta on Tuesday and then get your pasta fix with one of Katie's Wednesday Italian Specials or stop by Sharkey’s on Thursday and enjoy the Chicken Primavera Pasta Special.
Entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge:  
Patrick Major entertains tonight, The John Dawson Band is in Thursday through Saturday, we show NFL Football on the Big Screen in the Cabaret on Sunday and Monday nights and Bill Wharton performs next Tuesday and Wednesday. The John Dawson Band is a Reno based group of five fun-lovin' guys who just like to play music and entertain with a variety of modern country and classic rock. According to John, "the Washoe County Parole board took matters into their own hands on a wistful spring evening in 1999, and placed these 5 repeat offenders in a working band, demanding we concentrate on Country Music." The quintet includes Mitch (Lead Guitar), Brian (keys), J.B.  (Bass), Jhan (drums) and John Dawson (vocals and guitar).
