|The True Willie Band|
in the Valley Ballroom
Mammas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys . . . We’re just kidding! Cowboys shaped the culture of the Carson Valley just as Willie Nelson shaped the culture of Country and Western music. And this iconic figure in American music history will come to life in our Valley Ballroom on February 10 when the “True Willie Band,” the most authentic and convincing tribute act to Willie Nelson in America, performs in shows at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Details are on our web site so, guys, bring your Good Hearted Woman and get into the Valentine’s Day spirit!
And don’t forget these concerts we announced last week:
- Wynonna and the Big Noise Tour starts the TJ’s Corral concert season on Saturday night, April 29 and tickets are on sale now.
- Marshall Tucker Band comes to TJ’s Corral on Friday night, July 28 with tickets on sale soon.
- Thanks to our friends at Tahoe Onstage who covered the announcement of these two concerts in this article last week.
|Ford or Chevy - Which Side Are You On?|
Ford or Chevy – Hit our Penny Progressive Jackpot and Choose for Yourself!!
At a touch over $53,000 yesterday, our Penny Progressive Jackpot could easily bring a new car to the driveway of the next winner. Even if you pull out some of the money for taxes, you can still drive home a bargain on most of the cars covered in this article about the 13 Best Performance Cars for Less Than $50,000. Remember, this jackpot can only be won at CVI, Sharkey’s Casino or Bodines Casino. Our car of choice? Probably the Camaro SS or the Mustang GT . . . but we’d hang on to our 4WD around here! Which of the 13 would you choose?
Relatively Unimportant but Fun (?):
- Today is National Step In A Puddle And Splash Your Friends Day
- Friday is National Blame Someone Else Day
Sports and Race Book:
- On the Board: This week you can bet the NFL Divisional Playoff Games, NBA, College Basketball and NHL. Also on the board: wager on who will win the Super Bowl, NCAA Basketball Championship, NBA Championship, NHL Stanley Cup and World Series.
- The PRO PK’EM Parlay Progressive survived Wild Card Weekend so it’s on to 15 props on this weekend’s NFL Divisional Championship games. $4,556 is up for grabs if you get ‘em all on the $5 card (play as many as you want).
- Around the Sportsbook with Mike, Alan and Greg:
- Last Week, 2-4: Mike split on the Giants-Packers game – he lost the Giants at +5 but got the “Over” at 44½. Alan skunked again with the “Under” at 51½ on Alabama-Clemson and the Raiders at +3 ½ over the Texans. Greg split – got Clemson at +6 ½ and missed the Dolphins even at +10 over the Steelers.
- This Week: Mike and Alan both like the Packers at +4½ over Dallas. Continuing the underdog trend, Mike has the Steelers at + 1½ over the Chiefs and Alan has Seahawks at +4½ over Atlanta. Greg went a different route: he took the “over” at 45 on the Patriots-Texans game and the “under” at 44 ½ on the Chiefs-Steelers game.
