Sister's Comedy this Week, Food Drive Next

Sister About to Get Out of Control!
Sister's Christmas Catechism / The Mystery of the Magi's Gold is nuttier than "The Nutcracker," more 'kicks' than "Radio City's Christmas Spectacular" and funnier than "A Christmas Carol."  Don't miss out on the holiday comedy hijinks as Sister goes head-on with many of the truths and old wives tales about nuns and how they terrorized the students back in the “old days.”  She also tackles many of the idiosyncrasies of church in general in a way that will have you laughing and, unless you are a proponent of participation trophies, not be offended! The two nights of Sister’s Christmas Catechism  are this Thursday and Friday - come either night as the shows are (supposedly) the same. Tickets are $22 and are available at the hotel desk or you can order by phone at 775-783-6606 and pick ‘em up at the door.  

Food Drive Almost Here . . . so the crew at Channel 2 huddled in front of a studio camera (no smartphone selfies for this bunch) and issued the above video invitation to the KTVN Share Your Christmas Drive-By Food Drive coming up on Friday, December 9 from 6 AM to 6 PM at the entrance to our RV Park. Santa will be arriving by Care Flight helicopter (weather permitting) at 9:30 AM and hanging around until mid-afternoon, East Fork Fire Protection District will have various pieces of equipment and personnel on hand throughout the day, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office brings over some of their specialty vehicles, and volunteers from the Nevada National Guard, United States Marines and Nevada Department of Corrections will be helping out. All money and food donated locally goes to the Carson Valley Community Food ClosetAnd all blood donated (yep, there’s a Blood Drive from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) goes to help those who need this often-life-saving assistance during the upcoming holiday season. Please stop by!

Christmas Decorations Around the CVI
Let’s Talk Christmas:

  • Christmas Parties are Making a Comeback in our improving economy and you will see quite a few of them during December in our Ballroom space, Picon Room and the Private Dining Room in CV Steak. We bring this up because there may be still be room for your company if you don’t need a prime night . . . and now would be a good time to think about what you might want to do for next year as those prime nights go fast. Either way, give Carrie a call at 775-783-6673.
  • Christmas Decorations are all up here at the CVI and at our sister properties Sharkey’s and Bodines..  Eileen and her crew did all-new decorations in the Casino and Katie's this year . . . we hope you’ll check out the holiday spirit in all three properties!
  • A Toys for Tots box is located inside our hotel entrance – feel free to drop off a new unwrapped toy on your way in to check out the decorations.
  • A Christmas Village and more are depicted in our Candy Cane Lane drive-by Christmas display which you can enjoy nightly by pulling in to the entrance between our big sign and the Carson Valley Market. Tune your radio to 89.9 and listen to music while you watch the elves and other characters! 
Jan Vandermade's Picture Tells WhyCV for Him!
What’s your Carson Valley Story? The Carson Valley Visitors Authority and Carson Valley Times are kicking off #WhyCV – a photo, video and written word storytelling contest – in a few weeks and they’ll be looking for your best version of why Carson Valley has carved out that special place in your heart.  Prizes include an iPad, a GoPro, smartphone camera lenses, and a variety of gift certificates to the best in local dining. So why are we telling you now if submissions aren’t accepted until December 28? We want you to have plenty of time to start putting together your “story” . . . and consider this “not-so-subliminal” suggestion to include the Carson Valley Inn as part of your story if that’s what brought you here or keeps bringing you back!
