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

Hello from Las Vegas! Fall has settled in and the air is sunny and clear after a couple of stormy weeks. Big announcement this week is our Trip Report Giveaway:

The winning doesn’t have to stop when you get back home! You came to Vegas. You probably had a blast and told all your friends about it. Hey, we’re your friends too and fellow readers would love to hear all about it!

Two great ways to win when you post a Las Vegas Trip Report to our Trip Report Forums:

1. Every person posting a trip report during a calendar month will be entered into a random drawing for a Green $25 Casino Chip from the Las Vegas Strip casino of their choice! This is not a promotional chip. This is an actual $25 chip that you can cash in or bet at the tables.

What a great souvenir, and something to keep you excited about visiting Las Vegas again until you get here. Plus, imagine starting off your next trip with a “bet on us.”

2. Readers will be able to recommend (vote for) the various trip reports and the one with the most votes for the month also wins a Green $25 Casino Chip!

What are you waiting for? Click over to our Trip Report Forums and tell us about you recent trip!

Vegas For The Holidays – ‘Twas the week before Christmas … and a great time to be in Las Vegas! Crowds are light, rates are down, and for a rare week, things are more peaceful. Plan a few days here with us. It’s a good excuse to force yourself to finish that holiday shopping early! If you can’t make it this year, check out our Bellagio Botanical Gardens Christmas display photos from last year.

Airport Parking Reservations – Why didn’t someone think of this before??? You know how it is to get to the airport and hunt for parking. Especially during peak times like the holidays. Airport Parking Reservations fixes that problem. You can reserve your parking online, guaranteed and often at a discount. I love this concept! One less thing to worry about when you travel. Check out Airport Parking Reservations.

Mandalay Bay Shark Reef Photos – We’ve added photos to our huge Las Vegas photo gallery of the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef. See the photos and read about the Shark Reef.

Blackjack Birthday – There is only one place to celebrate your one-and-only 21’s Birthday: Las Vegas! And our friends at BlackJack Birthday have you set up. Imaging having a VIP access pass to the hottest clubs, shows, attractions and everything else you want to do when you turn 21 in Las Vegas. You’d pay more than $500 for all this high rolling excitement if you had to pay for it.

Or you can let us hook you up with the BlackJack Birthday pass, personalized with your name that you can wear like a rock star for a nominal fee of $21.00 to cover shipping, handling, and personalization. Visit BlackJack Birthday before you turn 21, and turn all your friends onto it as well!

Desert Inn Implosion – The time and date are now set: This Tuesday Nov. 16’th, 2004 at 2:30 AM (that is Monday late night) the remaining two towers of the Desert Inn will come down. This is a date change from an earlier report.

Manhattanization Of Las Vegas – The 90’s brought the era of the megaresort to Las Vegas. This decade brings the high rise boom. Upwards of 30 condo projects are on the drawing boards, and MGM Mirage just announced an urban metropolis on the 66 acres between Bellagio and Monte Carlo.

Frankly, the term Manhattanization is a little off-target. This boom more reflects the development happening in coastal areas where high-rise condos are built with ocean or gulf views around upscale shopping and dining areas to attract well-to-do baby boomers and young professionals. We don’t have an ocean. Instead the Vegas Strip view is our focal point.

Gambling Talk: Austin Powers Video Slots – All these crazy video slots can be confusing. How do you win? Our gaming expert Victor H. Royer will help you understand these games! This week, click to read his article on Austin Powers slots.
