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

Hello From Las Vegas! It’s the most wonderful time of the year… and I’m not talking Christmas. We men are celebrating the start of (American) Football season, unquestionably the most popular sport in the U.S. For the next four months, I’ll hear multiple excuses about why various staffers need to run errands… at right about 4 PM. (Prime Time college games start at 5 PM our time, NFL games at 6 PM). Funny… they seem to always return with a stack of sports book betting tickets!

The moms are happy the kids are back in school, and the singles are psyched about the opening of clubs Blush (Wynn Las Vegas) and LAX (Luxor). BTW… we can hook you up with VIP passes and table/bottle reservations at 800-696-5721.

VMA’s and AVP – Combine to make the biggest weekend in a long, long time this coming Sept. 6-9, 2007. The MTV Music Awards air live from The Palms on Sunday Sept. 9 at 9 PM Eastern. A few premium tickets are available but you better have one fat wallet to see this history-making Las Vegas event in person.

AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour is live from Caesars Palace on the 6’th – 8’th (Tickets). Finals are televised on the 8’th on MyNetworkTV (check local listings) This is of special interest to us: The Gods and Goddess’ Tourney contest. Our good friend and business associate Harley Van Hyning won the Atlanta God of the Beach contest and is in the town for the festivities and finals.

Harley is currently best known for his, which is well worth a listen for our friends from the south and Midwest who enjoy visiting Destin and Panama City Beach, Florida. He’ll also be doing some reporting for us here over the weekend on the recent opening of Blush Nightclub and other nightlife activities.

Features Will Return – Many of your favorite features like the photos of the week, reader questions, gambling tips, and reader submitted photos will return in September. Still plenty of news and information this week.
