Kenny Loggins Next, Clare Dunn Speaks Out, Wine and Burgers Get Their Day, More

 Aaron Watson featuring special guest Clare Dunn Concert on Friday, June 16: Clare Dunn says this about her playful pop rocker “Move On” from her title album: “It’s just a fun little ditty about a girl wanting a guy to put the move on her. There’s nothing wrong with the girl making the first move, but I personally am too shy to do it. This was just an experience that I went through, just trying to give this guy a hint.” Catch her personality in the video above and read more about this exceptionally talented singer/songwriter in  this first-person interview article posted by Tim Parsons of Tahoe OnStage after interviewing her extensively by phone a few days ago.

More Concert and Event Updates
  • The Lee Brice Concert last Saturday was incredible – perfect weather, a full house, exceptional sound (their sound guy is world-class) and energy over the top! Plenty of pictures were posted on social media and our album is at this link on Facebook. If you are a Facebook user, please like, follow and extol the virtues of both the Carson Valley Inn and TJ’s Corral. If you are not a Facebook user, please don’t take this as our encouragement for you to start . . . It can be addicting, time-consuming and infuriating . . .but also informative, entertaining and just plain fun!
  • Kenny Loggins Concert on Friday, June 9: We added a few more tickets earlier this week but they are selling fast. Please, if you’re planning to attend, don’t wait too much longer.
  • Also coming up in TJ’s Corral:

Our Wine Selection in CV Steak is Stellar!
Thursday is National Wine Day so we started asking some questions about the wine list in CV Steak and our own Jean-Michel Labadie was quite informative. “CV Steak opened in 2010 which by anyone’s definition turned out to be the high point of the recession.  We were close to some of the world's finest wine areas located in central and northern California, so we started featuring those wines and monitoring what people ordered, liked and requested.” As time went on it became obvious that, other than a few Champagne, Reisling, Pinot Grigio and other specialty wines, California varietals are what our customers wanted. To this day, most of our Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Meritage offerings are from either Napa Valley or other nearby wine areas. “The California wines we offer are as good as any wines available internationally and we offer over two dozen of our 70+ selections by-the-glass.”  Enough talk – time to stop by CV Steak for dinner or even just an appetizer and let us help you pair a wine or two to your food choices.

Read About Our Favorite Burger
at Each of Our Three Locations
Sunday is National Hamburger Day and we offer them in different configurations in Katie’s, The Jackpot Café in Sharkey’s Casino and the restaurant in Bodines Casino. Our favorite if we have to pick just one? Well first consider that the Carson Valley Inn is the big brother casino and both Sharkey’s and Bodines are our sister casinos. Having established that family hierarchy, we offer the following "favorite" at the risk of aggravating big brother and one of the sisters: we like the Volcano Burger at Sharkey’s stuffed with ghost pepper cheese and chorizo, topped with more ghost pepper cheese and spicy secret sauce! But, these two are both a close second: The Bodines Restaurant Double Cheese Burger with beer-battered French fries and Katie’s Smoke House Burger - double bacon, cheddar cheese and hickory BBQ sauce. Here’s the best part: you can take your time over a few days and experience them all! Get a myriad of interesting burger facts in this article.

Free Entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge

Hans Eberbach tonight, Arizona Jones Thursday thru Saturday and The Novelists acoustic duo Sunday thru Tuesday. Vocalist and songwriter Hans Eberbach has released a solo album, “Up Is The Only Way Out” and he also sings for Joy & Madness and fronts his own band HANS! and the HOT MESS a band that represents his original singer/songwriter/electronic soul work. In a scene so often dominated by technology and gimmicks, 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. The Novelists acoustic duo provides cliffhanger storytelling, dual lead singing personalities and their signature harmonies.
