Las Vegas Show Reviews

Tournament Of Kings by Terri DÆRichards

Pageantry, Fireworks, And Knights On Horseback – Tournament of Kings – Hear Ye! Hear Ye! û come one, come all to “Tournament of Kings” at the Excalibur — a throwback to the more themed era on the Las Vegas Strip. While newer properties have abandoned the Disney-like themes of their predecessors, and many of those existing previously have re-branded themselves, the Excalibur Hotel Casino retains its full on Medieval fantasy motif.

Newkirk’s Notes: The Boss Speaks…

Newkirk’s Notes are comments and insight from AccessVegas.Com publisher and 20+ year Las Vegas resident Ted Newkirk:

Hello From Las Vegas! – I’m on assignment again this week. We’re continuing to work on some very cool new things we’ll be bringing your way over the next 2-3 months.

Last issue, I told you about our “Best Of” poll where everyone goes in the pool and you get to vote for an unbiased result. We’re also working on the mother of all Las Vegas deals website application which will be available to paid subscribers only. There is nothing else like it out there and we’re going to guarantee it will save you at least the cost.

We have some other cool new things we’re keeping under our hat for now, one of which will help you get the most bang for your buck when it comes to the dreaded resort fees. If they are here to stay, let’s at least get our moneys worth. (And if you don’t like them, you seriously need to write your US Congressperson and Senator about legislation to make them transparent, just like the airlines have to do).

Please enjoy this issue prepared by staff!
