Newkirk’s Notes: The Boss Speaks…

Newkirk’s Notes are comments and insight from AccessVegas.Com publisher and 20+ year Las Vegas resident Ted Newkirk:

Hello From Las Vegas! – I’m taking care of administrative duties this week, so no real column. If it makes you feel any better about not being in Las Vegas, I haven’t been able to take much advantage of our stunninly sunny 60+ F degree days either!

We’re very much looking forward to March and March Madness (the US college basketball tournament). It will be here before you know it, with 70 degree days, mild evenings, and plenty of excitement in the air.

Speaking of, we’re getting very close to rolling out our own “Best Of Las Vegas” contest. I sat down and thought about how our readers could have a true voice that wasn’t subject to ballot stuffing or influence by certain groups. A real, true, accurate “best” poll. I’ll have the details soon, but think in terms of The Olympics or March Madness. Voting is going to be fun, and done in a random style that virtually prohibits ballot stuffing.

In the meantime, you still have until the end of the this month (January 2014) to write and tell us about your Vegas plans and thoughts for 2014. One random person is going to win a cool, “out-of-print” Vegas-based prize from us. Details are in the Members Mania section of our January 8, 2014 issue (click the link to check it out).

Stay Tuned and Hope You Are Enjoying This Issue!

  • Las Vegas Buffets For Every Budget – Before Las Vegas became the dining mecca it is today, it was the land of the buffet.

Whether you’re serious about food or just see it at sustenance, there’s a buffet of buffets waiting for you on the Strip.
