38 Special Teaser Friday, Motorcycles Saturday, Lightning Strikes Twice, More

Savannah Blue Friday is
Teaser for 38 Special September 21
The sounds of Southern Rock will fill Minden Park this Friday evening when Savannah Blue takes the gazebo stage in the finale of the 2018 GE Family Concert Series co-sponsored by the Carson Valley Inn and the Town of Minden. Just a two-block walk from the Carson Valley Inn, this free concert will be the perfect warm up, teaser and mood-setter for the upcoming visit by 38 Special who will bring their signature blast of Southern Rock to TJ's Corral on September 21! So, enjoy Savannah Blue this Friday, but Hold on Loosely so you can come back to TJ’s for 38 Special! You can buy 38 Special tickets on our website or in person at the Hotel Front Desk.

Teresa with Part of Her $10,000+
Lightning Strikes Twice
The first bolt brought $16,949 to a lucky local two weeks ago when she hit one of our two Lightning Link banks of slots for the Grand Jackpot Progressive. This past Monday lightning struck again when Teresa, another local who is a regular at both the CVI and Sharkey’s, hit the Grand Jackpot on the same bank of four slots for $10,711!  You’ll probably notice the burn marks in the carpet next to these slots which sit on the wall to the right as you come in the main casino entrance! 

And if you look across the casino you'll see our other Lightning Link slot bank with a Grand Jackpot at over $14,500 waving its hands and yelling #pick me next!” 

Need a little more to move your financial needle? Our four-property Penny Progressive has topped $29,000 and it can be won only at the Carson Valley Inn, Sharkey’s Casino, Bodines Casino or Slotworld Casino.

Motorcycle Racing Saturday
Roaring motorcycles will be in action this Saturday at the Fuji Park arena right behind our sister property Bodines Casino when the WFT (Western Flat Track) Carson City Deuce's Wild Pro/Am Flat Track Race comes to town with $10,000 in prize money on the line!  Tickets are available at Bodines Guest Services counter and we welcome attendees to stop at any of our four properties before or after the evening's events! For additional information, go to this link or call 415-320-7889.  

Blood Drive at CVI Thursday, August 30
Seems like we just had a Blood Drive here at CVI . . . But there's another major travel holiday (Labor Day already!) coming up so it's time for United Blood Services to make sure the supply is adequate for the inevitable needs. If you're able to give blood, and we understand not everyone is, please plan on donating at the Blood Drive in our west parking lot (under the big electronic sign) on Thursday, August 30 from noon to 6 PM.  You can easily schedule ahead at this link and remember, the life you save could very well be your own or someone close to you!

The Ultimate Way to Enjoy "Ride the Wind" Day
Burgers, Pies, Bananas and Wingsuits
Smokehouse Burger in Katie's

  • Today is Eat a Peach Day. Hint - wait until Friday.
  • Thursday is Burger Day. We serve seven different burgers in Katie's and they all come with lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles plus your choice of fries, potato salad or coleslaw. Our favorite? The Smokehouse Burger with double bacon, cheddar cheese and hickory BBQ sauce (full disclosure regarding the pictured Smokehouse Burger: some assembly required, no special tools needed)!  For our Carson City locals and visitors, we suggest celebrating Burger Day any Monday in Betsy’s CafĂ© at our Sister Property SlotWorld Casino with five specialty burger plates at just $7.99 on Burger Mondays.
  • Thursday is also Ride the Wind Day.  And no one rides the wind as dramatically as the Red Bull Wingsuit Team who will be performing at the Aviation Roundup at Minden Airport on Saturday and Sunday, October 13 & 14.

  • Friday is Peach Pie Day.  Have some friends coming over . . . or perhaps you just like to have peach pie always at your disposal? We offer whole peach pies at the Katie's Bakery Counter. Want to be more subtle or controlled about your peach pie consumption? Slide into Katie's and enjoy a slice . . . heated with a scoop of ice cream of course!
  • Saturday is Banana Split Day. We realize it’s only a day since you had your peach pie with ice cream, but come back Saturday and enjoy a banana split in Katie’s. If you have a little more control, or less flexibility in your schedule, we do serve them every day!
  • Monday is Banana Lovers Day. Let’s assume you’ve had your fill of banana splits by now and are looking for an alternative ways to recognize Banana Day: Enjoy a Banana Walnut Muffin in Job's Perk, order Banana Cream Pie (whole pie, mini pie or slice) in Katie’s or ask for the Banana Pancakes which will be the pancake-of-the-day on Monday!
