Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:
Hello from Las Vegas! Where has the time gone? It’s been a month since I last wrote and I’ve missed everyone! However, we’ve literally tripled the amount of information we add to AccessVegas.com so stop by every few days and check out the What’s New section of our front page.
We are working on a beautiful, upgraded design for AccessVegas.com as well as upgrading behind the scenes to bring you a lot more streaming Las Vegas video.
We are also very close to splitting the newsletter up (as promised): A new 4-5 times a week update for avid Vegas fanatics, and back to our weekly version for those looking for more basic, helpful vacation planning.
Lost of giveaways ready to go when we get the bugs out of our contest software. We had to stop running giveaways for a while because we have so many readers, we could no longer process entries by hand. Plus lots more cool stuff I don’t even want to get into yet …
The Weather Is Here – If you watched the NASCAR race form Las Vegas, you saw how perfect the weather is this time of year. Highs around 80 with very comfortable temperatures throughout the late evening. Spring and fall are prime time in Las Vegas so click to check room rates now.
Celine Dion Tickets Available – Tickets for her June shows are available, but going very, very quickly. Check out our June Headliners and Concert Calendar for details. Speaking of …
Entertainment Capital of the World – Las Vegas continues to live up to this billing. Our Headliners and Concert Calendar is jammed with entertainment. Check it out!
101 Las Vegas Top 10 Lists – Las Vegas Review-Journal gossip columnist Norm! (Clarke) is getting ready to put out this interesting book. This is the man who was first to break stories like Britney Spear’s Las Vegas wedding.
I had the pleasure of addressing a group of business leaders recently, and Norm was among them. Had a nice chat with him afterwards and we’ll be looking forward to his book. We have a number of other Las Vegas and gaming related books we read to pass time during our unusually cold winter here (it actually snowed twice, although brief), and we’ll be reviewing those soon as well.
Binion’s – After numerous legal hurdles and every monkey wrench imaginable, Binion’s Horseshoe downtown will be re-opening soon. But will it be like the old Binion’s we all knew and loved? We’ll let you know.
Roy Horn Update – Roy (Siegfried and Roy) Horn is up around walking a bit with the assistance of a wheeled walking aid, according to multiple sources. We wish him well in his continuing recovery. There is word of a Siegfried and Roy worldwide TV special down the road as his recovery progresses.
|Happy Birthday Lance – What do Osama Bin Laden, James Earl Ray, Prince Edward, Chuck Norris and Sharon Stone all have in common? They share a birthday with Las Vegas’ own Master Magician Lance Burton who just celebrated his 44’th birthday March 10. Next issue, we provide you an updated review of Lance’s great show!|
We Will Rock You – Paris Las Vegas appears ready to bring this production to Las Vegas on the heels of the very successful run of Mamma Mia! at Mandalay Bay. More details as they become available.
Valley Air Express – new air service now allows you to “fly” up I-15 between Las Vegas and Victorville, CA. Because they are a “charter” type airline and fly into Henderson Executive Airport (about 15 minutes from The Strip), you avoid the delays of security, plus the long drive through the desert. We’ll try to scam a ride soon to tell you more, as they look to expand into serving Riverside as well. Check them out online.
|See the Grand Canyon in a Jet Helicopter! For years Maverick Helicopters has been providing a true VIP Helicopter experience of the Grand Canyon. We do things a little different than any other helicopter Company. We give you an adventure of a lifetime and not just another tour of the Grand Canyon. Las Vegas Strip tours plus Helicopter Weddings also available!|
