Newsletter Going On Hiatus – We are going to take a few weeks off to soak up the sun and watch the off-duty cocktail waitresses sun by our complex pool.

OK, actually we (the staff) will be hard at work making some major upgrades to and this newsletter. And we can’t do both at once. So … Coming Soon:

  • We’re splitting this newsletter. It’s just too out-of-control with so much happening in Las Vegas! This version will get back to a focus on tourism: What to do, go, and see. The newsletter we are spinning off will deal with news of gaming, the condo boom, real estate, insider opinion and commentary, and other dirt on what makes Las Vegas tick. You’ll have to sign up for it separately. We’ll let you know how.
  • Expanded, upgraded nightlife and VIP areas of where you can buy nightclub passes, get set up for tables and booths (bottle service) with our VIP hosts, or just learn everything you need to know about our city’s famous nightclubs and nightlife.
  • Ted Newkirk will be returning to the helm. As many of you know, toxic residential mold exposure and a “perfect storm” of other environmental issues and mis-diagnosis kept our publisher gravely ill for months. He’s on a long, slow comeback trail and looking forward to getting back in the saddle here on a limited basis.

We here at the newsletter will see you in July, but will be going strong so don’t be a stranger! Take the time to surf some of the hundreds of streaming Las Vegas videos or thousands of Las Vegas photos we have online for you.

Scroll down for the Wynn Las Vegas photos and the rest of this issue!

Wynn Las Vegas Photos: Part Two – We now have over 50 new photos of Wynn Las Vegas online taken by Photographer Tom. These in addition to the photos sent in by reader Rick Bobst give us (what we believe is) more photos of Wynn Las Vegas than you’ll find on any other travel website! Click to Wynn Las Vegas photos and don’t forget: Below each photo is a Send As A Postcard link. Send as many as you want to show your friends!

Shop Our Logo Store – Just for being a great guy and sending us some of the first Wynn Las Vegas photos that were made available to the public anywhere, we’re giving reader Rick Bobst his choice of any item in our Logo Shop. If you are getting ready for your next trip, or just want something that tells everyone “I Know Las Vegas,” stop by our Logo Shop and grab a couple of treats for yourself or that special someone.

Free CD With Ticket Purchase – Our friend Larry G. Jones – Man Of 1002 Voices is offering a free CD with purchase of two tickets online. Click over to Larry G. Jones – Man Of 1002 Voices for details.

July 4’th Fireworks On The StripImportant notice … if you crane your neck on The Strip on July 4’th, you’ll be a day late and a dollar short. OK, hopefully you’ll be a few thousand dollars ahead for the visit but you won’t see any fireworks. The Stratosphere Tower is shooting them off … on July 3’rd.

So we suggest heading up to check out Wynn Las Vegas and then continuing to make your way north around dusk. Because The Strip has a bend in it, you won’t be able to see them south of Treasure Island. Fireworks usually go off around 9 PM when it’s completely dark but that can vary (wind at the top of the Tower delay). Grab a beverage and get yourself out on The Strip, soak up Vegas, and wait for the bangs!

Cook E. Jarr and The Twin Keys – One of our favorite things to do is to hit Harrah’s on a Tuesday or Wednesday because we get to see two of the best lounge/party acts in town, playing steps from each other at Harrah’s!

Twin Keys are Kimberley & Tamara Pinegar. These identical twins take the stage just inside from the Carnival Court Tuesdays – Saturdays from 9 PM to 2 AM. They have you laughing, singing along and dancing in no time. Keeping tradition of the dueling pianos genre, the show is an all-request, sing-along that incorporates audience participation and comedy. Twin Keys plays requests that range from the Andrews Sisters to Aerosmith and AC/DC! Check out their streaming video (not from Harrahs but you get the idea).

Cook E. Jarr is the ultimate showman. He’s the entertainers’ entertainer and he’s at Harrah’s on the fabulous Las Vegas Strip. Cook E. Jarr has been voted Number One lounge performer more times than any other performer in the history of Las Vegas. He is well known for attracting big-name celebrities to his phenomenal performances. Cook E. Jarr, King of America’s Lounges is performing at upstairs at Harrah’s Carnival Court on Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 11:00 PM. For more information and to hear streaming sound clips of his live show, visit our Cook E. Jarr – Las Vegas Legend page.

Chef Live … From Las Vegas – Over time, we’ve talked about this exciting new concept in streaming video and our friends at Chef Live are on a roll! Their Board of Directors is a literal who’s who of famous Las Vegas Chefs, they have already launched their first show locally, and things are going national and international soon. We’ve been involved with the development of Chef Live for almost five years and are thrilled to see it come together!

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

Hello from Las Vegas! Glad to report that Roy (Siegfried and Roy) Horn is stable and recovering. Medical news is limited, and he will have a long road to recovery, but things seem to look positive.

Been a fun week here! We enjoyed the opening of the Hot Rod Grille in Henderson, which drew a variety of revelers including The Amazing Jonathan, La Cage star Frank Marino, the ever-present Monti Rock, and a host of local celebs.

Wednesday night none other than Lance Burton turned up to see Twin Keys (see feature story) at Harrah’s La Playa Lounge. He signed a couple autographs, we said hello, and he settled in to enjoy the evening.

Soon after, two birthday girls got the special treatment as they sat on the baby grand pianos while all the men in the room were summoned to come to the state, get down on bended knee, and sing You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling a la Top Gun. Just part of the fun and wackiness of a dueling pianos show! Little did these lucky ladies know that one of their serenaders was Lance, down on a knee singing and having fun with everyone else.

Lance will be on Hollywood Squares the first week of December, and we’ll remind you as it gets closer.

Hot Rod Grille – just opened in the Hot Rod Plaza in the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson and features:

  • Dining area designed in garage deco theme with elevated red and white vinyl booths and freestanding tables.
  • Bar features video poker, replicas of cars from American Graffiti, and a mural of a street scene car chase.
  • More than 30 televisions including five 61-inch big screens, including one imbedded in an authentic ’62 candy-apple red convertible Cadillac.
  • Restaurant interior is adorned with artwork by race car artist Kenny Youngblood.
  • Room for more than 200 cars for special events including Rod Runs and Cruise-ins.

Menu: Catering to every appetite, Hot Rod Grille features a variety of appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, breakfast items, pizza, pastas, steak, seafood, and more. Executive Chef Charles Gruber has served as noted chef at a number of top Las Vegas resort properties.

Hours: 24/7 (hey, this is Las Vegas). Breakfast is served 7 AM – 1 PM, lunch from 11 AM – 3 PM, and dinner from 5 PM – 10 PM. A special menu offering appetizers and sandwiches is available at all other times.

Hot Rod Grille is easy to find at 1231 American Pacific Drive, Henderson, NV not far from Green Valley Ranch, Sunset Station and other Green Valley area attractions. Click to read more about this hot new spot.

World Series Tickets – If you can’t be here in Las Vegas to bet on the series, why not treat yourself to attending one of the actual games? Our certified ticket broker has some surprisingly affordable tickets that will let you say “I was there!”

Dueling Piano Twins At Harrah’s

Twin Keys is the only all-female dueling pianos show in the world. Even more amazing is that Twin Keys is identical twins blazing on identical grand pianos!

The twins, Kimberley and Tamara Pinegar, take the stage and have you laughing and singing along in no time. In keeping with the tradition of the ôdueling pianosö genre, the show is a high-energy, all-request, rocking, sing-along that incorporates audience participation and comedy (rated PG or R depending on the venue). Audience members are encouraged to get up and dance, as well!

The twins have been playing piano and singing since the age of six. They began touring as singer/dancers with a national corporate entertainment company. They fronted thirteen to fifteen-piece show bands at events and parties all over the world, including Super Bowl and Olympic events, parties in Barcelona, Maui, Cancun, Munich, Bahamas, Japan and Grand Cayman, not to mention most US states.

The twins have performed at parties for Reebok, Time, Sports Illustrated, Playboy TV NFL, NHL, Anheuser Busch, and the casts of televisionÆs Ally McBeal, The Practice, The Wonder Years and Picket Fences.

In 2000, Kimberley and Tamara decided to fuse their singing, dancing and comedy experience with piano to develop a dueling pianos show. Wonder Twin Powers Activate! Within six months, the brand new Twin Keys Dueling Piano Show was picked up by Disney Cruise Line and by dueling pianos clubs from the east to west coasts.

In February of this 2003, the show was brought to Harrah’s Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Twin Keys performs Tuesday through Saturday at 9 PM in La PLaya Lounge inside Harrah’s.

Kimberley and Tamara began playing piano duets at the age of six, but they had to share the family piano. Now they each have their own grand piano, so watch out ù ItÆs a duel you donÆt want to miss!
