Cheaters, a Campaign Cash Stop, Chocolate, Thanksgiving, More

Cheaters In a Casino??? Actually it's just a song about cheaters - Last Cheater's Waltz is just one of the #1 songs from TG Sheppard’s “Three Quarters Lonely” album . . . and this great cheating song in classic country waltz style is just one of the many hits TG will be performing during his special acoustic concert in the Valley Ballroom on Saturday night, November 12.  TG is bringing his special guest and wife Kelly Lang and tickets are just $25 at the hotel desk or call 775-783-6606. Our special 2-night TG Sheppard package includes Friday and Saturday hotel accommodations, two tickets for TG’s Concert and $50 towards your CVI restaurant dining. All the details are at this link. For a peek inside the Hendersonville, Tennessee home of TG and Kelly, check this video done last year by Open House NYC.  See the music room, the office, the pool and much more including a special portrait of TG during a recording session with Willie Nelson and one of Kelly Lang, now a 10+ year breast cancer survivor.

Pumpkin Pies and Pumpkin Cheesecakes are back and are being made daily in our bakery through December. Enjoy them by the slice in our restaurants  . . . or place your order or grab & go a whole pie or cheesecake at the Katie's Bakery counter.  Check out our "take 'em home" bakery menu.

Campaign Cash Stop at CVI Friday: KOZZ 105.7, Rock 104.5 and The X 100.1 are holding their last regular "Campaign Cash" stop in the CVI parking lot near TJ's Corral this Friday from 4 to 7:00 p.m. Regular listeners already know the drill . . . everyone else, check the Campaign Cash page for how it all works and then stop by this Friday for a chance to win $100 and qualify for a $5,000 grand prize. 

Chocolate is What They Do! Congratulations to The Chocolate Shoppe to be honored as Business of the Year for 2016 by the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce at their annual Community Recognition Awards Gala happening this Saturday in our Valley Ballroom. Ladies who frequent our Wednesday Ladies' Nights have shown with their enthusiasm The Chocolate Shoppe gift baskets and treats are definitely high on their favorites list!

Thanksgiving at the Inn:  Our Thanksgiving Dinner to Go for up to Ten 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. Thanksgiving Dinner Specials and the regular menu items will be served in CV Steak and Katie's on Thursday, November 24th. This link goes to all the information you’ll need.

A Confusing Confluence of Special Days: We're not sure if or how this all ties together but this Thursday is Men Make Dinner Day, Housewife's Day and Sandwich Day. We read through the information in each of these three links and, frankly, we're quite confused. Not sure if a sandwich is allowable under the Men Make Dinner Day rules . . . And if the man is actually the "housewife" in a particular situation, it really gets confusing. Our suggestion: forget the “rules” and come in to Katie's for lunch (have one of our sandwiches) and come back for dinner in CV Steak for the Sushi Special or whatever helps you feel you’ve covered all three “Days” in an acceptable (to you) manner!

Mundi Sees a Thanksgiving
Dinner To Go in Your Future
Scary, Huh! If you were here Monday and wondered who won the Halloween Costume Contest: First place daytime winner was Mundi Hamilton who was dressed as a gypsy.  Second place for daytime was Cara Hallert who was creatively dressed as a piece of luggage.  For our evening contest, first place winner was Jackie Halter dressed as a Scarecrow and second place honors went to Alexis Turner who was dressed as a Zombie.  

Sports and Race Book:
  • Breeders’ Cup this Weekend: The Breeders’ Cup races are this Friday and Saturday at Santa Anita Park and we’re taking action on the full card including the Breeders’ Cup Classic in which Mike’s colt Hoppertunity is scheduled to run. It’s a strong field and remember our standing disclaimer: this is horse racing and anything can change right up until post time!
  • Also On the Board: This week you can bet Game 7 of the World Series, NFL and NCAA Football, NBA Basketball, NHL Hockey, the Sunday AAA Texas 500 NASCAR race and the UFC Fight Night 98 matches in Mexico City.  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 $3603– pick all 15 NFL props straight up on the $5 card and it’s yours!
  • Chatter Around the Sportsbook with Mike and Allen:
    • Last Week: Allen said take the Raiders against Tampa Bay ‘cause they’d been doing great on the road and they stayed in Florida the week before. He was right – the Raiders won and they even extended their Florida stay long enough to run down almost an entire overtime period! Mike picked two under-the-radar games and took favorite Kansas State (-6½) over Iowa State and Connecticut to cover against East Carolina (-7). Well . . . Kansas State won, but only by 5 (almost, Mike) and East Carolina whooped Connecticut . . .  so both picks go in Mike’s “that’s why I don’t quit my day job” column!
    • This Week:  Allen likes the Raiders (-1) to cover and beat the Broncos and “his” underdog Eagles (+2½) to cover or beat the Giants. Mike is still sticking to the college games and picking underdogs Arkansas Razorbacks (+5) over the #10 Florida Gators and Iowa Hawkeyes (+7½) over the #18 Penn State Nittany Lions.

Free Entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge:  
Steve Lord entertains tonight, Arizona Jones makes their CVI debut Thursday through Saturday, we show NFL Football on the Big Screen in the Cabaret on Sunday and Monday nights and we’re dark (an omen?) for the election results on Tuesday. In a scene so often dominated by technology and gimmicks, Reno’s Arizona Jones prefers to do it the old fashioned way - live and personal. And when they put their rockin' spin on classic R&B hits from the 60's and 70's, you never know who'll be singing louder, the audience or the band. They play the hits from Aerosmith and Amy Winehouse to Wilson Pickett and ZZ Top . . . and many artists in between. Bring your dancin' shoes!  Click here for the upcoming lineup of free entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge.
