Granger or Earl?, Music-Food-Brew Fest Info, Summer Sporting Clays, More

Who Are These Two Guys???
Granger Smith Next Concert in TJ’s Corral
Granger Smith is coming to TJ’s Corral on Saturday, June 16 and we’re hoping to get to the bottom of the difference between the identities of Granger Smith and Earl Dibbles, Jr. They both list the same tour dates, they both look very similar, they’ll both be here on the same night, but something’s not making sense to us. Just who is this Earl Dibbles, Jr.? Guess we’ll all find out when Granger Smith Featuring Earl Dibbles, Jr. appears live in concert on Saturday, June 16.  Join us! 

The remainder of our 2018 concert schedule includes:  Clint Black on Friday, June 29; Ted Nugent  Wednesday, July 4; Trace Adkins Saturday, July 14 and Creedence Clearwater Revisited  on Sunday, August 12. Purchase tickets through our website which allows you to see the seating layout map and pick you seat.

But First A Night of Food, Blues and Brews
In our May 16 Blog we mentioned the music side of the Carson Valley Music, Food & Brew Fest in TJ’s Corral on June 15, the kickoff event for the 8th Annual Mike Tice Charity Weekend “For the Kids”. For a quick review of the artists (Blues Monsters, Buddy Emmer, Mighty Mike Schermer, Chris Cain and Nancy Wright ) check out this advance article by Tim Parsons of Tahoe OnStage. This week, we’re pleased to tell you more about the brews and food part of the evening. A $25 ticket for this event includes all 5+ hours of blues music which starts at 4 PM plus a sampler glass and three special “chits” to get you started on your food and drink preferences. Beers and ales are being poured from breweries such as Hop Valley, Saint Archer, Alaskan, Shoetree, Brewers Cabinet, Sam Adams, Alibi, Oskar Blues, Ballast Point, Uinta and more. Wines will be available from Lava Cap, Michael David, Giesen, Renwood, Klinker Brick, Bogle, Juggernaut Hillside and others.  Pulled pork sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs will be available for munching as you enjoy the music, wine and beer. Raffle tickets will be sold for special sports memorabilia. All proceeds from ticket sales, extra chit sales for drinks and food, and raffle tickets go to the Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada, Carson Valley Branch. For tickets and other information please go to this link on the Boys and Girls club of Western Nevada website. And a special thanks to The Pink House in Genoa for stepping up to sponsor this first night of the 8th Annual Mike Tice Charity Weekend “For the Kids.”

Summer Fun Sporting Clays
The CVI Summer Fun Sporting Clays – the summer version of our Winter Clay Shooting event – is coming up on August 5 – 7 and we’re looking forward to trading the coats and gloves for t-shirts and sunscreen! After an opening reception at the CVI on Sunday night, participants will enjoy two days of attempting to chase down a total of 300 clay targets, first at the Walker River Resort and then at Carson Valley Clays.  We’ll wrap it all up with dinner at JT Basque Restaurant & Bar on Tuesday evening. All the details are in the flyer at this link and we hope anyone who enjoys this always fun yet sometimes frustrating shotgun sport will join us!

This Week Around Here
  • Thursday is Chocolate Ice Cream Day. Yep, we have plenty of it in Katie's and we invite you to enjoy some before or after you attend . . .
  • Douglas High School and ASPIRE Academy High School graduation ceremonies are also Thursday: Congratulations to the many graduating seniors who have worked,or still or do work, at the Carson Valley Inn or Sharkey's Casino.

  • Carson Valley Days is this Weekend: Lots of activity in the area this weekend with the traditional Carson Valley Days Golf Tournament, Softball, Saturday Parade, Carnival and Entertainment at Lampe Park and much more,
  • Saturday is World Gin Day. To celebrate it this weekend, we have plenty of gins from which to choose here at our Carson Valley Inn bars. Then, come back again in about six months when the Bently Heritage facility opens a few steps out our front casino entrance. Word is this incredible Estate Distillery will be producing three varieties of gin, one with the piñon cone as an ingredient! We've been on multiple tours of this facility, the most recent earlier this week, and we can clearly see the end result will be spectacular!
  • What do You Think of When You Read “Camden, NJ?” OK, so this is totally unrelated to the CVI but we bet Drive-In Movie wasn’t the first thing that came to mind! Seems that on June 6, 1933, 85 years ago today, the first Drive-In-Movie facility opened in Camden, NJ!
Last Week Look Back
