Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:Hello from Las Vegas! We had a little unexpected hiatus from publishing. I tried to play “Mr. Fix It” with my computer and wiped out about two weeks of email, which included concerts and New Year’s updates and business email … you name it. (No … they don’t allow me near the big, main computers that run this show and I don’t blame them).
With New Year’s Eve bearing down on us, we’ll be publishing twice weekly through the end of the year to keep you up-to-date. Significant events have been added to our Las Vegas New Year’s Eve section. Oh, did I mention it’s been 70 (F)á for the past two weeks?
