Newkirk’s Notes: The Boss Speaks…
Newkirk’s Notes are comments and insight from AccessVegas.Com publisher and 20+ year Las Vegas resident Ted Newkirk:
Hello From Las Vegas! – I’ve been off for about 10 days house-hunting. This is a very tight, fickle market here right now (which I’ll discuss in future issues). So, just a few brief notes from me and we’ll get this issue out. Fortunately, it is super-packed with all the helpful information you need to get your fix of Vegas, keep up on what is going on, and help you consider what you want to do on your next visit.
We posted on our Access Vegas Twitter page last week that we may have seen the end of the 100 F degree days. We may sneak just into the triple digits for a few more days, but September’s average is 94 F so even if we go a little higher, the super-scorching days are coming to an end.
ALSO, keep in mind that sunset is around 7:30 PM here right now. (We sit on the very eastern edge of our time zone, so we always get earlier sunsets than most places). If you are thinking about watching the sun set and The Strip light up from the top of the Stratosphere Tower or the Paris Las Vegas Eiffel Tower, arrange to have yourself up there by 7 PM. Highly recommended, especially from Stratosphere. Worth the cab ride to catch sunset from up there!
Football Bars – As promised, here is the link to the list of all the NFL teams who have local bars devoting themselves exclusively to that team. This means they show every single game, showing it on every single one of their TV’s, and also offer food and drink specials. Is this for the average tourist? Probably not. The cab ride could run you a bit and obviously, the casinos have all games that are live on multiple TV’s.
However, if you are the kind of visitor who rents a car, gets out and about, checks out the off-strip casinos (plus Hoover Dam, Red Rock and similar), you might find hunting down a bar for your team tons of fun! You’ll be among a throng of like-minded people all rooting for your team. Check out the entire list: Las Vegas Valley bars pour on the enthusiasm to support their teams
Vegas Facebook – Just a reminder for you Facebook users: You can follow our Vegas-related feed at VegasFacebook.com. No, we’re not going to post photos of little children or kittens. And we’re not going to clutter your feed to death with a zillion stories every day. We post an average of 2-3 times per day with some fun photos and news stories about Vegas that help keep you in the loop. Some of which don’t make publication deadline for the newsletter.
