Mother's Day Hotel Package, What's In a Name? Are We the Best? More

Mother’s Day Package: Mother’s Day is only two months away and now might be a good time to think about planning a Mother’s Day weekend visit to the Carson Valley Inn with your mother, wife, grandmother, or anyone else who might enjoy a “let’s let someone else worry about the work” getaway. Each year we offer a limited number of Mother’s Day Weekend Hotel Packages and the last year or two we have sold out. Check out the details and give us a call at 775-783-6629 when you’re ready to make your reservations!

We don’t have a Tattoo Parlor, but there are half-dozen categories in the Nevada Magazine Best of Nevada 2017 Survey in which some aspect of the Carson Valley Inn certainly might garner your vote. It doesn’t take long to complete the survey and we hope you’ll give us a nod in those categories where you think we are deserving!

We Guarantee There’s Something in This Section You Will like:
  • What’s in a name? Bodines Casino picked up its name from a restaurant named Bodines that was previously located on the same property.  So here’s the question of the day: does anybody know how that restaurant named Bodines got its name?  We’ve heard a couple of different versions but we think we’ve reached the bottom of the story and we’ll have that answer in next week’s blog.
  • Anxious for Selection Sunday so you know whether your alma mater’s team made one of the postseason basketball tournaments? Or, perhaps you have a birthday on Sunday and are hoping your wife got you that new set of golf clubs? Either way, we know you “can’t wait” so we have come up with a plan to ease the burden . . .  We have made arrangements to cut an hour out of the darkness of Saturday night/Sunday morning and . . . . Oh heck, we’ll get to the point – this is just a reminder that Daylight Saving Time starts at 2 AM Sunday when all the clocks “spring” ahead one hour here in Nevada (not in every state, ya know.)
  • How Many Brackets Will You Complete?  In March of 2015 the American Gaming
    Association estimated that 40 million Americans would fill out more than 70 million brackets and wager approximately $9 billion on the NCAA tournament that year . . . and that was according to just-released research. Assuming normal inflation based on population increases and the seeming acceptance of alternate facts these days, let’s assume 75 million brackets will be filled out this year. Since this all happens between this Sunday evening and Tuesday morning, were thinking Monday should fall into the same category as the day after Super Bowl – why not just proclaim it a day off! Here’s even more support for our convoluted logic: since you’re taking the day off, it will help you celebrate National Napping Day (that's one of our blog writers napping in the picture at the link!) In any event, while we don’t book the whole bracketology thing at our sports book, we do handle action on every game in all the postseason tournaments. Place your bets at the CVI, Sharkey’s Casino or Bodines Casino and collect your winnings at whichever location is closest at the conclusion of the game!
  • National Name Tag Day is tomorrow and we think it would be a good idea for all of our guests and customers to wear name tags tomorrow . . . Sure would make it easier for us to remember everyone’s name!
  • Taxing Times: we were asked a few times again this week, so here’s a link to our 2016 Win/Loss Request Form.
  • A Complaining Restaurant Guest Led to What? Tuesday is National Potato Chip Day. This is certainly not something we’re celebrating around here but this all came about because a particular restaurant customer repeatedly complained one day back in 1853 (obviously not here at CVI). The chef’s “I’ll Show Him!” attitude kicked in and  . . . click the link and read about it! Now we aren’t advocating that everyone start complaining, but we sure do want to know if something is not right . . . just ask for the restaurant manager or the Manager on Duty to address any concerns.
  • Mike’s 4-year old filly Pretty N Cool won the Las Flores Stakes Saturday at Santa Anita Park. And if betting the ponies is your thing, you can do so 364½ days here at our Race and Sports Book.
