Complete Christmas Week Schedule, Diamonds for Christmas, See Who Just Turned 13, More in CVI Blog

Gather Your Family & Friends for Pictures in this Christmas Setting
Christmas Week at the Inn
Lot’s Happening!
  • Any Day This Week:
    • Stop by our hotel lobby and take pictures in front of the decorative Christmas display of trees, lights, presents, wreaths and more surrounding the fireplace. While there is no truth that our Christmas Music includes songs like “Tweetin’ Around The Christmas Tree” or “I’m Dreaming of a Facebook Check-In” or “Frosty the Photo Bomber,” we would appreciate you making us part of your social media posts by checking in or tagging us #carsonvalleyinn so we can see and maybe share your posts.
    • Candy Cane Lane is lit-up nightly to get or keep you and the kids in the Christmas spirit. Enter under the big electronic sign near our RV Park and drive through slowly while listening to the accompanying music on 89.9 FM. 
    • A Christmas Bonus You’ll Never Forget:  Our Penny Progressive is now locked in at $99,000 – and that will buy a  ton of Christmas presents for you, your family, some close friends and the folks who write this blog! Remember, this Progressive can – and eventually will – only be won at one of our four properties; the Carson Valley Inn, Bodines Casino, Sharkey’s Casino and Slot World.
  • Tonight:
    • Ladies’ Night:  Join us 5:30 to 8:30 PM tonight with the third of three free Christmas Ornaments for the first 150 ladies and Chocolate Shoppe Gift Baskets as hot seat prizes.

Takes Two to Drive This Colossal Slot!
Diamonds for Christmas?
With all due respect to the marketing and clever catchphrases done by the traditional jewelry stores and chains in the months leading up to Christmas, we have our own suggestion: the new Colossal Diamonds slot outside of Katie's provides a casino-lovers alternative romantic bonding experience. The two of you can sit down together, hold hands or snuggle while playing the game together, and use your winnings to buy large or small diamond(s) appropriate to the occasion and your personalities!

Our Usual Tidbits
  • If you missed the details in last week’s blog here is a link to all the information on our Gift Cards including how and where our gift cards can be used, how you can buy or reload a gift card and other gift card related information.
  • Thursday is French Fried Shrimp Day. Not that fried shrimp lovers need a prod, but a Fried Shrimp Platter is served daily in Katie’s from 4 PM and Katie’s Friday and Saturday night Roasted Prime Rib & Fried Shrimp dinner special is another way to jump in!
  • Monday is National Pumpkin Pie Day. We make ‘em just about daily in our bakery during November and December and you can enjoy a slice in Katie’s for dessert, or take home a whole pie from the Katie’s Bakery Counter. Always good to order the whole pies in advance around this time of year as we sometimes run out due to unpredictable demand patterns.
  • Tuesday is Thank You Note Day. Thank You for reading our blog and Thank You for your business!
  • Who’s 13-Year Old Is That In The Casino?!  Oops – another “sensationalizing” headline just to lead you in to reading this: 13 years ago, in December of 2004, our Poker Room opened. Not sure we have any sentimental types amongst our Poker Room crew, but we guess you’ll find out when you wish them Happy Birthday. Oh, and if you get a blank stare, please let us know as they are supposed to be reading this blog every week!
On the Sports Front
  • Our Guys Picks: A disappointing week for the Crew going 2 & 4 with their football picks. Alan (18-12) looks to rebound this week with the Falcons + 5½ in New Orleans and the Steelers -9 at the Texans. Mike  (16-14) is taking two OVERS this week in predicting a high scoring Birmingham Bowl over 67 points between Texas Tech & South Florida and over 42½ in the Jaguars – 49er’s game. Greg (10-20) looks to continue his awful streak with the Browns +6½ at the Bears and the Bucs +10 at the Panthers.
  • Enjoy $2 Draft Beer during all Televised Pro and College football games at the CVI - and our staff will bring your bar bites order to you right at your seat.
  • The Progressive Pro PK'EM is at $4,228 this week. The parlay cards are just $5 each!
  • Congratulations to Ken B who won the Ultimate Tailgate Party package during the Monday Night Football game earlier this week.  He took home a haul that included NFL hats, tee shirts, Budweiser merchandise, a corn hole game, a few cases of beer and more.   Actually, he really didn’t take it home as such  . . . Greg delivered it all to his house yesterday!
  • The Last Monday Night Football Grid in our poker room is this Monday and we’re giving away $93 for each of the first three quarters and the final score! Earn entries during live poker games this week ‘til all squares are claimed.
  • Place Your Bet: Place your bets on Pro Football, NCAA Bowl Games, NHL Hockey, Pro and College Basketball and Horse Racing. Futures on the board include winners for the 2018 Super Bowl, 2018 NCAA Basketball and Football Championships, 2018 NBA Championship, 2018 NHL Stanley Cup and 2018 World Series.
  • Sports and Race Betting: You can place and collect sports bets any time the Sports Book is open at the Carson Valley Inn or Bodines Casino. At Sharkey’s and Slot World, all sports betting is done at Guest Services. A winning sports bet placed at any of our four casinos can be cashed at any of our four casinos.  Horse Race bets can only be placed or cashed when the Race and Sports Book is open at the CVI or Bodines Casino.  
Free Entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge
Steve Lord tonight Live Entertainment Treat Thursday thru Saturday, Santa Silence on Sunday, NFL Football on Monday and John Palmore Tuesday and Wednesday.  A guitarist with dynamic vocals, Steve Lord is a main stage West Coast performer. A man of a thousand songs, Steve presents an evening of oldies, country, pop, blues, jazz, soul and rock 'n' roll. As for the Live Entertainment Treat on Thursday thru Saturday, our originally scheduled group had to cancel unexpectedly so our entertainment director, Rob Brooks, assembled a group of seasoned musicians who play with popular area bands such as Arizona Jones and The Revivals.  This type of talent, when given the opportunity to jam, often provides an energy and enthusiasm that just can’t be planned or duplicated! And the Santa Silence group on Sunday? Just a strong suggestion from Santa that we keep the Cabaret Lounge dark on Christmas Eve so as not to interfere with sleigh navigation. John Palmore is an accomplished singer and keyboardist who has worked with Jackie Wilson, Mary Wells, ZZ Hill, Wilson Pickett, Joe Simon, Percy Sledge, The Platters and other "name" artists.
