Loud This Weekend, Expanded Baked Goods Offered, Much More in CVI Blog

Probably Not Going to Happen!
Read the Yellow Sign.
NOT Going to Happen with These Guys!
The sights and sounds in the Carson Valley will get progressively more active over the next few days as this weekend’s Aviation Roundup draws closer. As one of the major sponsors of this event we have had unique opportunities this week to talk to some of the performers and learn more about the various vendors and the many ground aircraft displays. Pretty obvious to us that being at the airport this Saturday or Sunday is the only way to get the full experience of the incredibly broad scope of this aviation extravaganza.  Also, and being quite candid, by buying tickets, attending, and supporting the vendors, you are helping to make it possible to continue bringing world-class performers to the Carson Valley. More information is on this website and tickets are available either online or at Raley's Gardnerville. We’ll be there – please join us!

Comedy Coming!
The Veterans Day weekend Core 4 Comedy Show is only four weeks away and with all the activities in our Valley over the next few weeks, it will be “comedy time” before you know it! Headliner Brian Lee was in town last week and recorded the above invitation while he checked out the Valley Ballroom setting. Joining Brian are Host Jeff Anderson, Special Guest Luke Westberg and Feature Act Andy Picarro. Just $20 for the four-barreled dose of laughs and fun so get it on your calendar and buy your tickets online or at our hotel desk.

Bakery Delights and Desserts are House-Made at the CVI
Seasonal Bakery Additions
Fall brings thoughts of pumpkin patches and images of haunted forests – and so the staff in our  bakery “went seasonal!” Last week they added a Mini Black Forest Cake to our daily offerings at the Katie’s Bakery Counter. And this Friday, they’re starting the fall run of fresh-made Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Cheesecake. Our bakery team arrives very early every day of the week and they churn out the variety of baked good for sale at the Katie’s Bakery Counter and in Job's Perk . . . plus the many incredibly tasty desserts served in Katie’s and CV Steak. Want an excuse to deviate from your watch-the-waistline diet? Try some of our scrumptious offerings Sunday which just happens to be World Dessert Day!

Looking for a Job?
Our HR Team will be at the Fall 2018 Job Expo this Thursday, October 11 at the C.V.I.C. Hall on Esmeralda Ave. in Minden. The event runs from 11:00AM to 3:00PM, you can apply on the spot and we’ll be looking to fill openings at all four of our properties: Carson Valley Inn in Minden, Sharkey’s in Gardnerville, Bodines in south Carson City and SlotWorld on Hwy 50 East in Carson.

Football at the Inn

A Nod to Our Carson Cousins
Pulled Pork Sandwich a Favorite at SlotWorld

  • Thursday is Sausage Pizza Day. We’ve touted it before and we’ll say it again: There’s nothing like a fresh-made pizza cooked to order in the special brick pizza oven at Bodines Casino. Each pizza starts with hand-tossed dough to which we add the specific ingredients you request. The 600° cooking surface produces a pizza crisp on the bottom and bubbling on top. Ready?
  • Friday is Pulled Pork Day. We defer to our other “Carson cousin” SlotWorld Casino on this one. Betsy’s Big Kitchen serves a very popular Pulled Pork Sandwich – smothered in cole slaw and served on a French roll with fries for just $4.99 . . . a combination of taste and value that’s hard to beat!

Revival in the Cabaret Lounge this Weekend
Free Entertainment in the Cabaret Lounge
Jamie Rollins tonight, Revival Thursday thru Saturday, NFL Football Sunday and Monday nights and the Tany Jane Duo next Tuesday thru Thursday. Jamie Rollins is an upbeat and experienced entertainer, performing a variety of music from country to rock, to classic oldies and R&B – plus a few his own songs. Revival recreates the music of the '60s, '70s, and '80s, with a stunning accuracy and precision that's rarely found in today's live music scene. They will take you from the British invasion, through the muddy fields of Woodstock, to the diverse songs of the 80's like no one else can. The Tany Jane Duo plays a wide variety of music from many different genres and time periods, everything from old country to today's hits. Tany Jane is guitarist and backup singer Eric Stangeland and Cabaret scene veteran Brittany Maggert.
