Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:
Hello from Las Vegas! The snow in much of the US looks beautiful … especially from Las Vegas where it’s been 60-65 F all week! If you have ever visited in the summer and said “How do people live here” I have your answer: We never shovel snow or have an icy fender bender.
We are running late this week, so we’ll jump right in:
Cheap, Cheap, Cheap Rooms – National Finals Rodeo clears out on Dec. 15, leaving 10 days of pre-Christmas rock bottom room rates. You need an excuse to finish shopping early this year! Click to price Low Pre-Christmas Vegas Room Rates
Roy (Siegfried and Roy) Horn Update – We’ve been pelted with inquiries and frankly, there hasn’t been much word. Reports say that he may be home (out of the hospital) for Christmas, but that he is still in serious condition and not yet on solid food. He can write notes and is off the respirator. News is scarce to but we’ll let you know what we can.
NFR Tickets Available – Selected (many good and great) seats for National Finals Rodeo are available through our certified ticket broker. If you are coming to Las Vegas for the party, why not attend the actual event? National Finals Rodeo Premium Seating. As of press time, tickets are available starting at $45.00
Streaming Video Golf Lessons: Chipping – We’ve teamed up with Revere Anthem Golf Club Director of Instruction Chris Eastman (in conjunction with ChefLive.com) and put together a series of eight streaming video golf tips.
Chris starts with fundamentals like aim and grip, and works through some of the finer points of the game. This week: Lesson 3 – Chipping. Click to view lessons.
Las Vegas #1 For America West – America West has more non-stop flights to Las Vegas than to any other city (surpassing their home base of Phoenix). Check out America West Vacations for incredible travel deals from many cities. Because of code-share agreements, you might find a great deal even if you don’t live in an America West city!
David Brenner – is starting a one year run at the new Westin Casuarina. Click for Westin Casurina info/rates and Brenner show tickets.
Las Vegas Bowl – on Christmas Eve pits Oregon State vs. New Mexico. Tickets available by calling 702-895-3900. Premium seating is also available: Las Vegas Bowl Premium Seating. Can’t make it? 4:30 PM local start on ESPN.
Sports Betting Question – Yes, you can bet on a game while you are in town, then claim your winnings by mail at no additional cost (except certified postage fee). Ask at the sportsbook for details. Betting the bowl games: another great reason to visit Las Vegas for the next month!
Casino Construction News – The Bourbon Street Hotel has applied for an expansion including a 32 story hotel tower. An unrelated company intends to build a resort on the site of Wet and Wild (between The Sahara and Riviera). In Las Vegas, seeing will be believing.
Video Spotlight – We are always adding new streaming video to our All Vegas TV site, over 100 Las Vegas videos to date! This week, feature video is Rio Seafood Buffet. Check out a fun video preview: Dial-Up or Broadband

New Year’s Eve Las Vegas: Insider Tips
This year will be the biggest Las Vegas New Year’s ever, and that is no hype. Pyro Spectaculars has been hired to do a 13 minute show simultaneously stretching all four miles of The Strip from Excalibur to Stratosphere Tower.
The price tag? $500,000. The cost to you? Absolutely zero! For the first time, the fireworks will include a three minute countdown so you know it’s just about time to scream, yell, kiss, jump up and down … and ring in the new year.
We are your New Year’s Eve experts. Other resources may devote a page or two with generic info. We are on The Strip year after year, enjoying it, gathering first-hand advice, and taking photos and video for you!
