Access Vegas Insider Vibe September 30, 2020

Newkirk’s Notes

This was written literally a couple of hours before we found out that President Trump is COVID-19 positive. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and Melania. This does not change my opinion that Las Vegas can safely continue to open up. Nor does it change the facts regarding the lies from the Governors minions which we document.

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – Lots of good news this issue! You can’t continue to fake a pandemic with vital numbers as low as they are, the Governor finally had to cry “uncle”.

Note: I’m not suggesting that COVID-19 isn’t real, nor devastating. I myself turn 55 this month (most deaths were people 55+), and have immune issues. I quarantine most of the time, mask up outside my home, don’t touch my eyes or nose when out and about, and do a LONG surgeons scrub hand wash when I return home.

I get it. But, I don’t believe that we need to keep selected activities, inconvenience everyone, and make your visit have tons of limits just to keep me safe.

For our Supporting (Paid) Members, we go over everything that has opened, current restrictions, whether you may (or may not) be able to see a ballgame at Allegiant Stadium this fall, how and when shows are looking to open, and much, much, more.

Note: If you are reading this, you are a Free Subscriber, not a Supporting (Paid) Member. To keep us free of obligations which come with casino advertising, our Supporting Members basically buy us a “cup of coffee” each month (about the same amount of money, paid yearly), which allows us to keep them up on the inside scoop needed. Especially as travel opens up, and Las Vegas makes significant strides in returning to normal.

You don’t want to visit too soon, especially if things that interest you are not at full blast. On the other hand, you don’t want to be sitting home based on bad info or rumors when a Vegas visit (under the current conditions) might be a perfect respite, and a good chance to blow off some steam that has built up during this crazy year of 2020!

Think about the thousands of dollars you spend to get here, hotels, food, entertainment (yes, I said entertainment, it’s coming back), gambling and more.

Just a couple of nice specialty cocktails at one of the better hotels on The Strip is going to run you upwards of $40 (not including tip). And yet, to think you won’t “hedge your bet on your next Vegas visit” by tossing us less than $35 for an entire year of (by far) the best Las Vegas visitor information and personal resource out there.

Using our “Your Guy In Vegas” feature to help answer specific questions you need to know (especially NOW) is often worth the price alone for many of our Members!

Head on over to

right now, while you are thinking about it, and check out ALL of the benefits. And, don’t forget our 60-Day Money-Back Guarantee. If we can’t make you THE most informed visitor that has ever hit Vegas, we don’t want your money. Period.

Hope You Are Enjoying This Issue!
