Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:
Hello From Las Vegas! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families from Las Vegas this year. This slightly abbreviated edition (due to the holidays) still contains piles of the latest news you need to know, plus two new giveaways!
We have a great new photo set of the Bellagio Christmas display for those of you who can’t make it here this season. If you have have seen the display in the past will recognize a few familiar themes along with some great new ideas and themes in this spectacular display.

The countdown to New Year’s Eve is going strong, and this is literally getting to be “last call” for booking rooms, tickets to the nightclub parties, or that special New Year’s Eve concert. Two words of advice:
- Still need a room? Do not wait. Book now. End of story. The rates aren’t exactly going down as rooms get scarce heading into the final week. Let us suggest our friends at Las Vegas Hotel Deals where you can search your dates and what availability is left at the various hotels. Special Note: Most hotels are requiring a Friday arrival. If you try to check for a Saturday or Sunday arrival, it will limit your options and cost even more.
- We have a huge listing of concert and nightlife events on our December 31, 2006 Concert Listings. Tickets are going quickly for the events not yet sold out. If you want expert help choosing which nightclub party is best for you, call our nightlife experts at 800-696-5721.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
