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

Hello From Las Vegas! Super Bowl weekend was huge, with about 285,000 people in town, and it seems like everybody had a bet on the game. I have little interest in either team and simply bet for fun. In Nevada, we call it a “TV bet” when you bet on a game just to have some rooting interest. I lost my bet (Seattle to win +165 … that means I picked Seattle to win and would have been paid $165 for every $100 I bet … getting a bonus for taking the underdog) but had fun watching the game.

February 5 Insider Vibe Broadcast/Podcast Is “On The Air” – The latest weekly edition of our new broadcast is available now! I’ll keep you updated on the latest news, events, and exclusive commentary so you can have the true scoop on what is happening in Las Vegas. Click over to Radio @ and listen now so you don’t miss a thing. I cover exclusive information in the broadcast that isn’t in the newsletter!

Valentines Day is almost here. Guys … if you are like me, you forget about it until the last minute. Well … now it’s the last minute and if you want to bring that special lady to Las Vegas, don’t delay. Rooms are going very, very, very fast. I would do the following:

1. Visit our friends at Las Vegas Hotel Deals and lock up that room immediately.

2. She’ll forgive that you flew in coach on some discount airline (and almost forgot about Valentines) if you treat her with a limo ride from the airport. So book your Las Vegas Limo Reservation now. And if you can’t get the mid-week off to take her, make her day special with a card that says “We are going to Vegas soon!”

Carrot Top Review: I Can’t Believe I
Watched the Whole Show, and I Liked It!

By Phil Arnold
December 2005

Carrot Top las vegas hotels hiltonHow long has Carrot Top been around and how famous is he? I don’t have a clue about the answer to those questions, and his web site certainly didn’t help me find out information. Carrot Top may be a publicity hound, but what does that have to do with his show? Nothing I guess. I enjoyed watching this show and I was surprised.

Carrot Top does annoying commercials, kind of looks like the Wendy’s girl as he brings up in his show, but he is a unique type of comic. He is what I call a prop comic. I have seen this before in Las Vegas with a comic by the name of Joe Trammel. But Carrot Top is much more accomplished and has about four trunks of props he goes through during a show, maybe more.

Volcano Time Change At The Mirage – The Mirage volcano now erupts at the top of each hour from 6 p.m. to midnight. Each night the explosive show transforms a dramatic waterfall in front of The Mirage into a spectacular, flame-throwing volcano with molten streams of lava. More than 3,000 computerized lights create this nightly optical illusion. The nightly show is free to the public.
