Elvis week at Carson Valley Inn

From page B3 | January 03, 2014 |

Elvis Presley would have turned 79 on Jan. 8 and the Carson Valley Inn is celebrating with Elvis Week from Jan. 6 to 11.

Highlights include Teddy Bear giveaways on Monday, Jan. 6, free cake and champagne on Wednesday, Jan. 8, an Elvis Tribute in the Cabaret Lounge and some of Elvis’ favorite food combinations served as specials in Katie’s all week

The Teddy Bear giveaway kicks off Elvis Week when INN Club members earning 100 points or more that day will receive a free Teddy Bear while they last — plus members keep the points.

Large Elvis birthday cakes and champagne will be served in the casino on Wednesday from noon-1 p.m. and from 6-7 p.m. Members also earn four times points on video reels and two times points on video pokers all day Tuesday and triple points from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday.

Elvis was known for his eclectic taste in food and a few of his favorites will be served in Katie’s Monday through Saturday, Jan. 6 to 11 from 11 a.m.-10 p.m.

Included are biscuits smothered in white sausage gravy, fried peanut butter and nana sandwich on country-style white bread served with bacon strips, cornmeal-battered fried catfish with cole slaw and French fries and banana pudding with Nilly Vanilly wafer cookies.

Backed by the CVI band, Brian Andrews performs as Elvis Wednesday through Saturday in the Cabaret Lounge twice each night.

Former Elvis body guard Dave Hebler shares stories and answers questions between the Elvis shows. A jam session featuring ’50s and ’60s music and plenty of Elvis tunes wrap up each night.

According to D.J. Fontana, Elvis’s drummer from 1954 to 1968, “Brian Andrews is the closest thing to Elvis I’ve ever seen or heard. It’s no surprise that Brian can re-create Elvis so well — he happens to have one of the best Elvis memorabilia collections around. He looks, moves, talks, sings and feels Elvis.”

For a number of years, Dave Hebler was Elvis Presley’s bodyguard whose primary responsibility was the personal safety of Elvis at home as well as at recording sessions, personal appearances, concert tours and various recreational activities.

Hebler also taught Elvis martial arts and, with two other Elvis bodyguards, was one of the three collaborators on the book “Elvis What Happened?” No questions are off limits for Hebler who has first-hand Elvis insights known by only a very few.

The Carson Valley Inn is located on U.S. Highway 395 in Minden, Nev. near the start of State Highway 88.
