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

If you were looking for our promised special issue this past Sunday, we apologize. We have been upgrading our newsletter software to handle the great demand … and it took a little longer than expected to get the bugs out.

Been a very rare week this week, with rain, clouds, and highs barely reaching 70 F. I am personally putting this lousy weather back on an Alaska Airlines flight tonight and sending it back to the Pacific Northwest where it belongs! (No hate mail, please. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, an area that is spectacularly beautiful).

VegasTalk Radio - The only Internet Radio variety show about Las Vegas broadcast from Las Vegas Vegas Talk – is the new internet radio show just for the Las Vegas tourist! Each week, guests talk about what’s hot with celeb sightings, gambling tips, show reviews, dining information and more from some of the top Las Vegas experts. I mean the big names you’ve seen on those Travel Channel shows or read in our local papers.

We are pleased to be a sponsor, and our Vegas Minute is included in the show. We also produce the convention segment so you can know where the crowds may or may not be when you visit!

Vegas Talk airs live at 9:00 AM Pacific time on Friday, but each show is archived and can be listened to anytime. Enjoy this week’s show and the archives so you can come to Las Vegas informed!

The Manhattan Express Roller Coaster now offers the All-In-One Fun Package, available for $39.99. The package includes an all day unlimited roller coaster ride wristband; a souvenir T-shirt; a 5 x 7 souvenir picture; choice of hot dog, cheeseburger or slice of pizza; small fries and small drink at Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs; an all day unlimited use wristband for the Coney Island Emporium for participating games; 500 points at the redemption center and a 20-inch clown doll.

The Manhattan Express is located at New York, New York Hotel Casino and is the worldÆs first coaster to feature a 180-degree heartline twist and dive maneuver, providing riders with heart-stopping action and thrills. The roller coaster is open daily from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 a.m.

Gambling Talk – You’ve heard about basic strategy and proper play. This is where a gambler follows the most scientific way to play a given game for the best expected outcome. But are there times you should break the rules? Read our gambling expert Victor H. Royer’s article A Little Math and Some Reality

Fashion Show Mall – Phase III opens Friday Oct. 21, 2004. All of that massive construction in front of Caesars Palace is finally about done! We’ll have a report soon.

We read our feedback, and many of you are saying “Hey Ted, it’s nice to hear about The Bellagio and Celine Dion, but not all of us fly in on a Lear jet. How about some of the value that Las Vegas has always been famous for?”

We went out and lined up some great deals for you, including a couple of coupons just for our readers. One of which is for a free show!

Larry G. Jones: $6.95 Includes One Drink (no coupon needed) – The Man of 1002 Voices is back at The Plaza Hotel Casino downtown nightly at 6:00 PM (dark Friday). Larry is awesome. His fast moving show will leave you laughing non-stop and his impressions are dead on. If Danny Gans is a bit our of your price range, treat yourself to the equally talented Larry G. Jones. Click for more info: Larry G. Jones: May Of 1002 Voices

Spotlight: $9.95 With Our Coupon – We just saw this show at Bourbon Street Hotel Casino and really enjoyed it. So I strong-armed producer Will Roya (who also produces the Michael John’s Comedy Magic Show below) and said “Cough it up for our readers … We want a great price.” (OK, I actually bought him dinner).

If you love all the high-energy specialty acts in the big production shows, spotlight is the show to see with the best up-and-coming talent in town. On any particular night you may see the world’s best magicians, jugglers, comics, impersonators, dancers, singers, contortionists, fire eaters, Elvis and surprise guest stars.

This is usually a $39.95 ticket, but click to get our Spotlight Coupon and you are in for $9.95. Can’t beat that. Well … maybe we can …

Michael Johns Comedy Hypnosis Show: Free With Our Coupon – This is the adults-only, late evening show at Bourbon Street. This is the same show that Johns has been performing around the country in comedy clubs to amazing rave reviews. Fast paced, comedy club style humor with cutting edge hypnosis techniques make this a fun event.

This is usually a $39.95 ticket, but click to get our Michael Johns Comedy Hypnosis Show Coupon and you are in for $0.00. That is right. Free. No bull. Nothing else to do. Print the coupon, enjoy the show free just for being one of our readers!

While we are in value mode, good time to remind you that Bourbon Street continues to have a great Steak and Lobster Special, served 24/7 for only $7.77. Thirsty? Buckets of Corona are only $10.00. Bourbon Street is one block from The Bellagio. See our Las Vegas Strip Map for location.
