Our Town Loves Country, Kenny G Next, Brunch with Mike Tice Thursday, More from the Carson Valley Inn

"Man, does this town love its country!"
The headline was so well stated by Pheonix Gruneich in her review of last Friday's Easton Corbin Concert! She went on to write, "Trucker hats, cowboy hats, jeans and plenty of cowboy boots were the order of the evening." That sure describes the setting and you can read the entire review here. Our special thanks to Tim Parsons and his crew at Tahoe Onstage for always reaching out to our artists in advance and then covering the concerts on their website – a great resource for concert news in northern Nevada!

Kenny G Next in TJ’s
Kenny G is next in our 2019 Concert Season with a live performance in TJ’s Corral on Saturday, June 8.  Following Kenny G are Uncle Kracker on June 29, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts on July 4, Dwight Yoakam on July 26, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo on July 31, Martina McBride on August 4 and Loverboy on August 9.  For tickets, check this page on our website or stop by the hotel front desk. And be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for any upcoming additions

Why Does He Do It? And Why Here?
Coach Mike Tice is passionate about getting a permanent facility built for the Boys & Girls Club of Western Nevada, Carson Valley Branch. But why here? He now lives in Seattle and has held NFL coaching positions in three other cities during the last 8 years. Yet he hosts the Mike Tice Annual Charity Weekend "For The Kids" in our community . . . for the benefit of our kids. Find out the “why” this Thursday at 10AM when Coach Tice is hosting a brunch here at the CVI to share this vision. Coach is also passionate about recognizing his sponsors so please consider attending this event and, if it works for you, joining the impressive list of local and national companies and individuals who have already stepped up to help Coach make this facility a reality in the Carson Valley.

First TJ's Corral Concert Friday, Old Cars, Motorcycles, More at CVI

TJ’s Kicks Into Gear This Friday!
Easton Corbin’s concert this Friday in TJ’s Corral is his first of five appearances in nine days . . . But we’ll have him ”fresh” and we can’t wait for his kick off of our 2019 Concert Season. Following Easton are Kenny G on June 8, Uncle Kracker on June 29, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts on July 4, Dwight Yoakam (Standing Room Only) on July 26, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo on July 31, Martina McBride on August 4 and Loverboy on August 9.  For tickets, check this page on our website or stop by the hotel front desk. And be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for any additions.

A Concert FAQ of Sorts
Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we receive concerning concerts in TJ’s Corral:
  • If you bought a ticket for seating, rest assured you’ll have a padded chair and not a steel or plastic seat.
  • You may see some upscale portable restrooms. These are just to augment our permanent restrooms - take your pick!
  • For accessible seating arrangements, or if you have any questions, please call 775-783-7766 in advance. We want to have the time to answer your questions and our folks are busy taking tickets, seating people and running Will Call and the Box Office on the afternoon and evening of concerts.
  • The Box Office and Will Call open at 4 PM and the gates open about 45 minutes before the show starts. This Friday’s concert – and most of the 2019 concerts – start at 8:00 PM.
  • Everyone needs a ticket, regardless of age.
  • On the no-no list: Outside food/drinks, chairs, pets, drones, etc.
  • Smoking? It’s OK but only in the designated area.
  • Please have your ticket ready when you get to the entrance – this will make scanning and “getting you in” go so much quicker.
  • Think you might need a sweater, jacket, or any other garment? Bring it in with you because there’s no re-admittance into the concert area after your ticket has been scanned.
  • Yep, the concerts will proceed rain or shine, hot or cold.
  • When buying tickets, a couple of suggestions: make sure you are on the Carson Valley Inn’s website and not a third-party ticket seller as most of them charge higher rates. Also, if you’re buying more than one ticket, make sure your seats are together before you finalize your purchase.
Old Cars, Blue Skies, Snow Capped Mountains!
Nickel Cars and Gold Wing Hondas
  • “After the Brass and before the Chrome.” That’s how event chair Bill Ramsden describes the Nickel Car Era. The technical definition is 1912-1929; some clubs extend it to 1932. Whatever definition you choose, there are over three dozen of these beauties at the CVI through Thursday as part of the Nickel Era Touring Registry Inc. NEVNET 2019 Tour.
    Gary & Lori Mouldenhauer (l) Ralph & Robynn French (r)
    on their Gold Wing Hondas
  • If touring motorcycles are more your style check out the 50+ Gold Wings, trikes and other touring motorcycles at the CVI this weekend. They’ll be here as the Gold Wing Road Riders Association [GWRRA], California District holds their annual convention with various seminars, classes, demonstrations and other activities dedicated to furthering their motto of Friends for Fun, Safety and Knowledge!  Don’t miss the free show by the California Gold Angles Sunday at 2:30PM in our west lot between the casino and Carson Valley Market.
Carson Valley Market Ready?
We snapped the above picture during a lull in the mad dash earlier this week to finish stocking the shelves so we could open. By the time you read this, the Carson Valley Market convenience store could very well be back in business after a complete interior demolition and remodeling. About the beer garden of sorts we mentioned last week? That’s it in the far left background - plenty of beer on hand now but we'll have more about that area next week.

We Make These Days About You
Can You Pick Out the
Mini Blueberry Cheesecake?
  • Thursday is Lucky Penny Day. For centuries finding a penny has been considered a good omen, an event that suggested something good would happen in the life of the finder. We don’t have an opinion one way or the other on this concept but it did give us cause to check out our Penny Progressive Jackpot which has climbed to over $53,500! This game changer would definitely be “something good” and it can only be won on the Penny Progressive Slots at CVI, Sharkey’s, Slot World or Bodines!
  • Friday is Escargot Day. Never enjoyed this delicacy? Bring a friend who has and give it a try in CV Steak!
  • Saturday is Wine Day. Unlike Drink Wine Day in February, Wine Day is more about celebrating the beverage rather than the act of drinking it. Seriously?! Drinking wine IS celebrating it and we offer dozens of wines by the bottle and glass in CV Steak!
  • Sunday is Blueberry Cheesecake Day. Your best bet to enjoy it at the CVI: one of our mini cheesecakes at Katie’s Bakery Counter. The flavors and toppings vary from day-to-day but were thinking they’ll be a few extra blueberry cheesecakes available this Sunday!
  • Tuesday is Hamburger Day and we have a variety of burgers for you at Katie’s here at the CVI, the Jackpot CafĂ© at Sharkey’s Casino, Betsy’s Big Kitchen at Slot World Casino and the restaurant (needs a name, huh!) at Bodines Casino!  The selections vary by location and each offers its specialties!
Race & Sports Book
  • On the Board this week: Major League Baseball, at least two more games in the NBA Basketball Eastern Conference Finals (Championship Series starts June 1), NHL Hockey Stanley Cup Games (start Monday) and Sunday’s two big races, the Indianapolis 500 (9:30AM PDT) and the Monster Energy NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 (3:00PM PDT). Did you know: Firestone provides about 5,000 tires for the Indianapolis 500 every year with each entry getting 36 sets of tires for practice, qualifying and the race.
  • Futures Bets: 2019 US Open at Pebble Beach, 2019 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup, 2019 World Series, 2020 NCAA Football Championship and 2020 Super Bowl!

Gotta Be Country, Wine Walk, Where's the Beer, More from Carson Valley Inn


 “Somebody's Gotta Be Country”
A few of us “country is not necessarily my thing” types were kicking around why tickets are selling so well for Easton Corbin’s concert coming up next Friday, May 24 in TJ’s Corral. The light went on when we watched the video of his most recent hit “Somebody's Gotta Be Country.” With some scenes that could’ve been shot in Western Nevada, and lyrics like “Yeah I take up two spots cause my truck don't fit,” “All my rowdy buddies keep settlin' down” and “Yeah somebody's gotta back up traffic on an old John Deere,” we now ”get it.”  While we doubt Easton’s ever been to Carson Valley physically, we know he must’ve spent time here in spirit! We did release some more tickets for Easton’s concert earlier this week and we urge you to get ‘em while they last as this event is definitely trending towards a sellout!

Our full 2019 Concert Lineup includes Easton Corbin on May 24, Kenny G on June 8, Uncle Kracker on June 29, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts on July 4, Dwight Yoakam (Standing Only) on July 26, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo on July 31, Martina McBride on August 4 and Loverboy on August 9.  For tickets, check this page on our website or stop by the hotel front desk. And be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for any upcoming additions.

Wine Walk Thursday
Sip 'n' Shine is the theme for this year’s first Thirsty Thursday Wine Walk happening tomorrow in Gardnerville with Sharkey’s Casino right in the middle of all the action. Over 40 businesses are participating in one way or another and along the walk you’re likely to see classic cars, a couple of bands some food offerings and, of course a sample of wine at many of the businesses. You can register in advance at this link or stop at Big Daddy’s Bicycles or the Gardnerville Station (the old gas station at the S curve) this Thursday from 4:30 to 7:00 PM prior to starting your wine trek. You’ll definitely need the proper “stamp” and “dot” to enjoy the samples (including Sharkey's.) The $20 fee also includes your Commemorative Forever Glass . . . and it’s only $15 if you bring your Commemorative Forever Glass from previous wine walks – that’s the glass with light blue logo and no year.

Ride for the Tatas May 19
The 10th Annual Pinocchio’s Ride for the Tatas is this weekend and the always-colorful Poker Run will stop at the CVI this Sunday! The participants in this two-day party and ride have always brought a festive flow during the poker run’s CVI stop. You can check it out midday Sunday when they park near our big electronic sign and wander into the Cabaret Lounge for their poker hand card.

Where’s the Beer?
At least that’s the first question we asked yesterday when we snapped this picture of the almost completed interior of the Carson Valley Market. As it turns out, the special beer garden cooler is just off the left edge of the picture – but more about that next week. Meanwhile we think that two gentlemen in the upper right-hand section of the picture are storing their beer in the attic! The complete remodeling of the Carson Valley market, while going a little slower than we anticipated, is in the home stretch. As we’ve mentioned the last few weeks, the gas and diesel pumps are open for credit card and debit card purchases during the remodel.
