Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:

Hello from Las Vegas! Our winter hiatus is over, our hangover from New Year’s eve has subsided, everyone was safe and sound and Las Vegas enjoyed the biggest New Year’s ever!

Co’mon … did anybody think terrorist would be dumb enough to do something at midnight Pacific time when everyone in the known “centers of the universe” (New York, Washington DC, London, Atlanta … take your pick) were asleep? That wouldn’t have been getting much bang for the buck.

Binion’s Closed, Sold, Set To Open – Binon’s was closed this past weekend due to numerous outstanding debts owed to everyone from the IRS to the union pension and welfare funds. Harrah’s has been interested in the property for quite some time and bought it almost immediately. The lights are back on and word is that the casino will open again as quickly as regulators and other legalities are taken care of.

A union strike of downtown hotels was averted in 2002 but many questioned whether the struggling Binion’s property could meet the new wage and benefit demands. Ultimately it appears they couldn’t.

To the uninitiated, it would seem that operating a casino is a no-brainer but with the growth of Indian Gaming and the Las Vegas Strip really becoming the focal point for those choosing a Las Vegas vacation, downtown casinos have been suffering for years.

Las Vegas shows are hotter than ever, and with tourism booming again tickets are in high demand. Almost all shows are reserved seating, which means reserving in advance gets you better seats (or at least gets you seats to the most popular shows).
