Pizza and Beer, Coffins & Cheer plus Much More

Pizza and Beer, Coffins and Cheer – It's All in the Family!
And by family we mean the Carson Valley Inn and our two sister casinos Sharkey's Casino and Bodines Casino. And here's how it all ties together: 
Bodines' stone-fired made-to-order pizza and a cold beer!
  • Pizza and Beer: this one falls squarely on Bodines Casino - the perfect place to celebrate Pizza and Beer Day this Sunday or any day! Bodines' 19 different bottled beers and half-dozen beers on tap provide a generous choice of accompaniments for your made-to-order pizza cooked in Bodines stone-fired pizza oven, specially built to maintain a stone surface temperature of 450° and an internal temperature of nearly 600°. Each pizza is hand tossed, loaded with the ingredients you request, rotated during the cooking process and served piping hot!
  • Coffins: it's over to Sharkey's Casino for this one as the Silver Dollar Bar is the perfect place to quench your thirst after the 2nd Annual Slaughterhouse Lane Coffin Races this Saturday
    All this a stone's throw from Sharkey's Saturday
    right across the street in Heritage Park. This event is quite unusual with  teams of four pushers propelling a rider in their "handmade" coffin. For some reason there are four pages of rules and those not meeting the rules or not having fun are subject to receiving some type of undefined "special recognition." It's no wonder some participants also tune-up at Sharkey's Silver Dollar Bar before the race!
  • Cheer:  we're back to the Carson Valley Inn for this one and the "cheer" has to do with a Christmas theme to an event we've presented before during a non-holiday season – Late Nite Catechism. Here for one sold-out night in 2014, we’re clearing the decks for two nights in early December for their special approach to Holy Nite Comedy!! Watch next week for the details!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and no one event in the Carson Valley recognizes it more visually, audibly or financially than Bunko for Breast Cancer this Saturday night in our Valley Ballroom. We’ve mentioned this event the last few weeks and we give you this one last reminder in the hopes you will participate or at least stop by and show your support. With sports characters as the theme, you're likely to see anything . . . And please remember all proceeds stay locally and support the Carson Tahoe Cancer Resource Center!

A Few Tidbits:
  • TG Sheppard Next Month: A reminder that TG Sheppard 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 TG’s Concert. All the details are at this link.
  • Why So Many Handbags, Ladies?  Turns out there is actually a National Handbag Day. It’s next Monday and if you have space in your closet for yet another handbag, don’t miss out on our Ladies Night promotion on Wednesdays ‘cause this month you have an opportunity to win a Coach Handbag and Wallet. 
Sports and Race Book:
  • This week you can bet Major League Baseball Playoffs, Horseracing, NFL and NCAA Football, the WNBA Finals and Saturday’s Bank of America 500 NASCAR race.  Also on the board: updated futures bets on who will win the World Series, the 2016 Season NCAA Football Championship and the February, 2017 Super Bowl.
  • The PRO PK’EM Parlay Progressive is now at $3102 – pick all 15 NFL games straight up on the $5 card and it’s yours!
  • Chatter around the Sportsbook: it's fun to talk to Mike and Jim at the sports book on Tuesday mornings after all the odds for the week have been posted. We asked them each what their pics were for this week.
    • Jim didn’t even want to talk football, he likes the Giants tonight with Bumgarner pitching.
    • Mike’s philosophy is always take the underdog when there’s a big point spread and neither team has proven to be very good so far this year. His picks this week: take Texas and the points versus Oklahoma in their storied Red River Rivalry and take Purdue and the points in their battle with Illinois for the Perdue Cannon.
  • Which NFL games are garnering the most chatter by our CVI fans this week? The Cards vs. Niners because who would’ve thought they would both be 1-3 at this point, the Falcons (3-1) vs. the Broncos (4-0) and the Chargers vs. the Raiders because of the obvious local appeal, the tie to Coach Tice and the upward trend for the Raiders.
Free Entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge:  Jonathon “JB” Barton entertains tonight,  Justin Lee and his band are in Thursday through Saturday, we show NFL Football on the Big Screen in the Cabaret on Sunday and Monday nights and George Pickard performs next Tuesday and Wednesday.  With his self-titled EP release in 2015, Justin Lee burst onto the country music scene. The up-and-coming musician has gone from playing in a cover band with his buddies to performing on the same stage as acts like The Band Perry, Parmalee and Jake Owen. Justin has performed at ShipKicker in Long Beach and Night in the Country, Nevada’s largest country music festival. Click here for the upcoming lineup of free entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge.
