Another Live Music Event in TJ's Corral, Creedence Clearwater Revisited this Sunday, Classic Cars this Thursday, More

The left group is "Revisited," the Right Group is Revisiting!
Creedence Clearwater Revisited Sunday,
38 Special in the Wings
  • With a daytime high predicted to be "only" in the mid-90s, an 8 PM start time, and no precipitation in the forecast, Sunday night is shaping up quite nicely for the Creedence Clearwater Revisited concert in TJ's Corral. We checked with our Box Office folks last night and they reported standing room tickets are available and suggested that, if you're still interested in attending, you act quickly. There may be some seated tickets available on Sunday night at the Box Office if we get any last-minute releases by the artist.
  • After a  break for the start  of school in many districts, we are thrilled to have 38 Special  returning to TJ's Corral on Friday evening, September 21.  The group was last in TJ's in the summer of 2015.
  • You can buy tickets for both remaining concerts on our website or in person at the Hotel Front Desk.
CVI 34th Birthday Means
A Free Treat for You!! 

Our 34th Birthday Party is Saturday evening, August 18 from 5:30 to 8 PM in TJ’s Corral and it includes some Free "presents" for you including Michael Furlong’s Tribute to Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers!  This classic rock experience has been appearing in casinos throughout the country as well as fairs and festivals nationally since 1990.  Tom Petty himself made mention of Michael’s show in a 1996 Rolling Stone Magazine interview, on the internationally syndicated radio show "Rock Line" and on "MTV's Top 20 Countdown."

You'll also be able to chow-down at special birthday prices with $2 pulled pork sandwiches and $1 hot dogs. Quench your thirst with $2 beers, $3 wine and just a buck for soda and water. And it wouldn’t be a birthday party without
free ice cream!  No tickets are necessary, no reservations are required and there’s plenty of free parking so just join us for a fun evening. All we ask is that you please leave your pets at home.

CV Steak – A Point of View
Here's another chapter from the CVI's “We Couldn't Have Written It Better" book: a discriminating Carson Valley local sent us a message out of the blue last weekend after enjoying a birthday dinner in CV Steak on Friday night. His comments were quite concise and positive: "We had dinner at CV Steak last night. Awesome!! The server Shreya was one of the best I’ve had in a LONG time. And the food: great taste and presentation . . . quality with every item. Every person we encountered was high class from the hostess and the manager to the bus person. Yet he wasn’t like any busser I’ve come across. Engaging from the start. We thought he was our waiter. Excellent table presence and added polite but well timed humor: We’ll call him our 'other server.'" Thanks for your comments and please keep 'em coming!

Classic Cars from the Fifties and Sixties will Fill Minden Park Thursday
Hot August Nights Poker Run
Passes CVI Thursday
Catch all the classic cars of Hot August Nights this Thursday when the Poker Run makes its annual stop in Minden Park, just two blocks from the Carson Valley Inn. Park at the CVI if you wish, wander over to catch some of the cars (or watch them pass the CVI from our front door), then escape the heat with lunch or a snack in Katie's or a "cool down" in our casino. The best classic car viewing will be from 10 AM to 2 PM and we offer our special thanks to the Town of Minden and the Carson Valley Visitors Authority for sponsoring this official Hot August Nights Poker Run Stop! After the Poker Run gets you groovin' to the hits of the 50s and 60s, continue the flow on Sunday and enjoy some of the rock 'n' roll sounds of the early 70s as Creedence Clearwater Revisited takes the stage in TJ's Corral!

Hannah & Fredrick
A Prelude to the Mixed Scramble?
Hannah Gregg and Frederick Lindblom took a moment to relax in front of the waterfall on the #8 green at the Genoa Lakes Ranch Course two weeks ago while visiting our area on a social media blitz. Both are very active in the golf business as players, bloggers and product representatives. 

We tried to talk them into coming back for our 34th Annual Mixed Scramble Golf Tournament in September but their schedule simply was too full. Actually, we were okay with that because they play golf at a level well above our comfort zone!  With the Mixed Scramble just a month away, now would be a really good time to check out the details at this link, gather a few friends, sign up and get ready for mixing it up with a bunch of other folks who just like to enjoy a weekend of fun that happens to include a no-pressure round of golf! And when your foursome gets to the #8 green, be sure to stop and have your picture taken in front of the waterfall . . . perhaps you will come out looking as young and athletic as Hannah and Frederick!

Free Entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge
The Roem Baur Duo tonight, Stone Senate Thursday thru Sunday, Cliff and Dave Monday and Tuesday.  Roem Baur is a multiple award-winning touring songwriter and classically trained opera singer who ultimately answered the call of rock n' roll.  Stone Senate is a 5 piece contemporary Southern Rock band hailing from Nashville. With collective musical influences as varied as hard rock, bluegrass, funk, metal, and classic country, Stone Senate has often been compared to such classic acts as the Allman Brothers and a heavier Lynyrd Skynyrd with an undeniably original twist.  Cliff and Dave is powerhouse singer/gospel drummer Cliff Porter and southern-fried singer/guitarist Dave Berry, often seen fronting the band Jelly Bread. They provide an evening of sultry R&B, funk and swinging rock ’n’ roll.
