Whiskey, Taxes, Eagles, Ducks and Pie!

A River of Whiskey at the CVI?  
Whiskey River, On the Road Again, Always on My Mind, City of New Orleans, Good Hearted Woman, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys . . . these Willie Nelson hits and many more will fill your evening with Country and Western music history, nostalgia and joy in our Valley Ballroom on Friday, February 10.  Join us as 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. Also coming up:
Start on Your 2016 Taxes Yet?  We didn’t think so but that doesn’t mean we can’t get you thinking about it. And if your tax return includes the need for a Win-Loss Report from your gaming activities at the CVI, here’s a link to the Request Form which includes the three ways it can be submitted. Good time to include this reminder: we can only report what you won or lost while playing using your INN Club card, so be sure to use your card anytime you sit down at a slot machine or table game!

Upcoming Events at Carson Valley Inn:
The next two months bring a number of annual events and one of the many benefits of holding such events here at the Carson Valley Inn is we help get the word out. Be sure to check out the following: 
  • Eagles and Agriculture, January 27 – 29: the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce’s annual celebration of the calving season and all the associated raptors it brings.
  • Ducks Unlimited, Saturday, February 11: the Carson Valley chapter presents its annual dinner to raise funds for conservation in Nevada.
  • Republican Lincoln-Reagan Dinner, February 12: a long-standing tradition held on the Sunday closest to Lincoln’s birthday each year.
  • Austin’s House Cowboy Mardi Gras, February 24: who would’ve ever thought mixing Cowboys and Mardi Gras would work - it sure does and it’s a big hit every year with all proceeds going to the Carson Valley Children’s Home.
  • CVI Sporting Clays Shooting Weekend, February 23 – 25: this one is not a fundraiser – it’s an all-out FUN raiser with a reception on Thursday, clay shooting Friday and Saturday and an awards banquet on Saturday night with a variety of prizes, surprises, drawings and the inevitable “stories.”
Pie, Not Pi.  Monday, January 23 is National Pie Day as promoted by the American Pie Council Day. Another one of those many national days providing with an opportunity to tempt you with the scrumptious selection of pies, cakes, cookies, brownies and other sweets at the Katie’s bakery counter . . . all fresh-made daily in our bakery! As for “Pi Day,” we’ll get back to you as it gets closer to mid-March!

Sports and Race Book:
  • On the Board: This week you can bet the NFL Conference Championship Games, NBA, College Basketball and NHL.  Also on the board: wager on who will win the Super Bowl (down to 4!), NCAA Basketball Championship,  NBA Championship, NHL Stanley Cup and World Series.
  • The PRO PK’EM Parlay Progressive made it through Divisional Championship Weekend without a winner so we have 15 props on this weekend’s Conference Championship games. Pocket $4,654 if you get ‘em all on the $5 card (play as many as you want). If no one “hits” it this week, then it’s all-in for the Super Bowl game . . . We’ll again have 15 props and whoever picks the most wins the pot with ties split.
  • Around the Sportsbook with Mike, Alan and Greg:
    • Last Week, 5-1:  The “boys” were feeling pretty good after this past weekend . . . darn near everyone else who placed a bet on the NFL games should also have been feeling good as “it wasn’t a good week for the Nevada sports books!” Mike and Alan both hit the Packers at +4½ over Dallas. Mike got the Steelers at + 1½ over the Chiefs and Alan missed with the Seahawks at +4½ over Atlanta. Greg hit both the “over” at 45 on the Patriots-Texans game and the “under” at 44 ½ on the Chiefs-Steelers game.
    • This Week:  Mike picked what he called the “Killer P’s,” the Patriots at -5½ and the Packers at +4.  Greg also likes the Patriots to cover and the over on the Pats-Steelers game at 51. Alan reversed Greg with the Steelers at +5½ and under the 51.  And what if the total for the Pats-Steelers game is exactly 51? If it happens, we’ll tell you how it works!

The Novelists in the Cabaret Lounge this Weekend
Free Entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge:  Patrick Major performs tonight, The Novelists entertain Thursday, Friday and Saturday and Bill Wharton appears next Tuesday and Wednesday.  Equally comfortable acoustic or electric, The Novelists showcase cliffhanger storytelling, multiple lead singers and their signature four-part harmonies. In addition to a headlining gig at Dallas Cowboys Stadium, The Novelists have become a mainstay on the West Coast festival, college and house concert circuits. They’ve shared the stage with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, John Prine, and Daryl Stuermer (Genesis). The Novelists Acoustic Duo has made a couple of mid-week appearances in the Cabaret Lounge in the last few months . . . and based on their reception they are here for their first weekend visit with the full band.
