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

Hello From Las Vegas! The Tropicana may or may not be a victim of an implosion later on this year, but Dirk Arthur is celebrating his one year anniversary there with no signs of letting up. Catch it while you can! Who would have thought that Barry Manilow would have a #1 selling CD? And the only place to see him is Las Vegas! We’ve got a great, free audio clip from our Gaming Expert Victor H. Royer in this issue, filling you on on how to win.

After a few cold and windy days (including some light rain last Sunday), the week ahead is looking good with highs in the 70’s!

Limos Are Hot and I mean red hot. I was sifting through some of the reservations we’ve taken just today, and you would be surprised at how many are flying on on Southwest or Allegiant or similar discount airline, then kicking off your vacation with a limo ride from the airport to your hotel.

An airline seat is an airline seat, but nothing rocks your vacation from the very first minute like being whisked away in a limo, and the grand entrance you make at the hotel is priceless! The cost? Not much more than a cab. Seriously. Click to check our our limo rates and see for yourself!

Last Chance To Win the book Powerful Profits At Internet Poker by our gaming expert Victor H. Royer. If you are new to internet poker, interested in it, or playing and not getting the results you want, you need this book. And we are giving away five copies! Enter Drawing For Powerful Profits From Internet Poker. We also have a link to a free 14 minute expert audio segment on this topic later in the newsletter.

Insider Vibe Broadcast/Podcast returns next week! We accomplished significant upgrades to handle the demand to listen, and I’m looking forward to being back “on the air!”

Enjoy This Issue!

Dear Ted, I’ve just got back from a 7 night vacation in Las Vegas today (Fri) and miss it already. I only lost $10 overall so I’m pleased. I stayed at the Stardust and was very sad to find this magnificent piece of LV history is to die at the end of 2006 – Is there some way to save it and incorporate the main West Tower into the new complex and save the beautiful name?.

Anyway my fave place was off strip – The Rio. It’s floor show in the afternoon is second to none with photo opportunities too – extremely professional and fun too. Long live The Rio. Also what few people in my group realized that some of the best eating establishments are off strip, esp. the Gold Coast Buffet – What a choice – lunchtime buffet only $7.45 – I came out rather heavier than I went in. – Any surveys you run please include me so I can rate the best of Beautiful Las Vegas. Ted keep up the good work.

Regards – Owen (South Shields, England)

Ted Responds – Owen, glad you had such a great time! I’m thrilled and flattered by our friends around the world who love Las Vegas, travel so far to see us, and enjoy our information. Because of the scope of the size of the Stardust replacement, the building will come down. But listeners know that I am no fan of the replacement name “Echelon Place”. At the very least, it would be nice if part of the new complex kept some of the Stardust name. Thanks for writing!
