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

Hello From Las Vegas! Back after a scheduled week off. Weather is a perfect 85/65 F. No better time to enjoy walking The Strip and Downtown or get a round of golf in.

Jersey Boys opened with a bang at Palazzo. The night was extra special: Jersey Boys is the award-winning musical that tells the story of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons and Frankie Valli was in attendance celebrating his 74’th birthday!

Valli was joined by the remaining original Four Seasons – legendary songwriter & producer Bob Gaudio and Las Vegas resident Tommy DeVito. Wayne Brady, John Cleese, Nigel Lythgoe, John O’Hurley, Sex & the City’s Willie Garson, Ugly Betty’s Michael Urie, Comedienne Rita Rudner and Palazzo owner Sheldon Adelson were also on hand.

Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons and is the story of how a group of blue-collar guys became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide. Many of the biggest hits including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” “Oh, What a Night,” are performed.

Jimmy Buffett heads back to Las Vegas for his two annual shows on October 18 & 25 as part of Jimmy Buffett’s “The Year Of Still Here” Tour 2008. Parrotheads fly in from around the world for one (or both) of these shows and the Las Vegas Strip turns into a Parrothead Paradise.

A few issues ago, a reader asked about good Chinese food and we received a number of replies:

  • Adrienne & Bill Sheneman wrote: My choice for excellent Chinese Cuisine is Ping Pang Pong at the Gold Coast. Real Chinese Food prepared and served properly. A large percentage of their clientele is Asian so they must be doing things the way Mom used to.
  • Julie wrote: A great but expensive Chinese restaurant is Pearl at MGM Grand. Their Almond Crusted Lemon Chicken is fabulous.
  • Gail Hubbard wrote: I enjoy dining at Ming’s Table located in Harrah’s. It has a great variety of dishes and is reasonably priced. The service is excellent. The dining area is rather small, but I find that seating is easy to get in “off hours”.

One of the most frequent questions we get is about seeing jazz here in Las Vegas. All events are complimentary (no admission charge):

American’s Got Talent is auditioning this coming Sunday May 11 at the Planet Hollywood Performing Arts Theatre. Auditions will be taped for future use on the show. Tapings are open to the public and take place at 10 AM and 3 PM. Producers have been quoted as saying that anyone arriving an hour before taping should be able to get in. Makes sense as the auditorium holds about 7000 people.

Enjoy This Issue!

Fab Four Mania Replicates Every Beatles Note Live

by Terri Feld

“Help! I need somebody…” to tell me, is it real or is it lip-synching?! “Beatlemania” redux in this incredible live performance that replicates every note in the original key. Playing nightly (Mon-Sat. 7:00pm) in the Sahara Showroom, David Saxe’s current Las Vegas production, “Fab Four Mania”, does, however, distinguish itself from the late 70’s Broadway hit “Beatlemania”.

Entering the showroom off the Party Pit Blackjack lounge which boasts lava lamps, tie-dye t-shirted dealers and a Beatles soundtrack (all in full swing when the show lets out at 8:15PM), show-goers immediately get the vibe, taking a photo-op in front of the groovy, painted VW mini-bus located at the theater entrance. Beatles trivia questions displayed on large monitors stage right and left amuse and occasionally stump audience members already seated, awaiting the show’s start.

Mega Bubble – An Ethereal And Magical Quality Like Nothing Else

(Editors Note: The name of this show just recently changed to Gazillion Bubble Show. It is the same show).

by Devon Brooke Clasen

Finding even a modicum of innocence in “Sin City” is a challenging feat to be sure, but a world of innocence, wonder and enchantment awaits visitors to the Mega Bubble Show, playing in the Steve Wyrick Theatre in Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile shops from Thursday through Sunday at 3 p.m., with an additional 11 a.m. show on Saturday and 1 p.m. shows on Saturday and Sunday.

Innocuous enough, bubbles enraptured us all as wee little ones, with an ethereal and magical quality like nothing else found in nature. Eventually the novelty wears off and as we grow up, bubbles receive nary a thought… The Mega Bubble Show reintroduces us to the beguiling fascination of the bubble, which we recognized and appreciated as children and perhaps need the occasional reminder of as adults.

Gambling Talk: The Lady M – with Victor H. Royer. It was a cold January day, the week after the New Year’s crush of tourists. Among the real gamblers and high rollers, the early weeks in January are often the times when they like to come and play. For any type of gaming, other than live poker, coming to a casino after all the crowds have left is better, and often more profitable. High-stakes players like to be the center of attention, but at the same time most of them dislike being bothered by the gawkers and onlookers. Click to Read Complete Article…

Members Mania – We Love Our Readers!

I am coming to Las Vegas the end of March. What are the streets that go to downtown(not on the freeway). Last time I was there the driver turned west on Tropicana to I 15 and then to downtown. Seemed a long way out of the way than what I had done before with other cabs.

I would like to tell them where to go and not the long way IF they will listen to me. I did tell the other driver that I did not want to go the tunnel and he seemed upset so when we got to Tropicana and he turned to the west, I did not have the nerve to tell him otherwise as he said he always took the tunnel. Need a good map for me to give to them! Otherwise the tip will be minimal.

Thanks for all the good things in


You referred to this in a reply in the last newsletter. Can you please tell me more about long hauling? I was just in Vegas last week, and it seemed that the cab ride cost a whole lot more than the last time I visited. We were going to the Mirage, and the cabbie took the freeway, something that had never happened before, and it didn’t seem right. Did we get long hauled, and how do we avoid that in the future?



Ted Responds:

I-15 runs parallel to The Strip all the way to downtown. It is a couple of miles longer, but usually quicker. Many in a rental car my prefer to scoot over to Paradise (east of The Strip) and head north. Paradise basically ends at The Stratosphere where you can get back on Las Vegas Blvd. (The Strip) for the rest of the trip downtown.

The tunnel only applies if you are going to or from the airport. It is not in the vicinity of The Strip. Unless a cab driver specifically asks your permission, a trip from the airport to any Strip hotel should not involve the freeway. If the cabbie is aware of a serious and unusual traffic issue that makes the tunnel option more attractive, your driver should specifically note such.

We have a map section in beta at The maps are working and ready to go. We still have to put some touches on the design.

I am planning to visit Vegas in Dec for about a week. I understand there is a period (I am not sure whether the week before Christmas or the week after Christmas) where many shows have a dark period.I would be grateful if you would let me know whether it is better to visit during the week before or after Christmas. Many thanks.By the way I love your newsletter. Keep up the good work.


Denis Wan


Ted Responds:

Both, although some shows start to get back going after Christmas. The week before Christmas is the slowest week of the year, usually with the lowest room rates.

Thanks for reading and please tell all your friends. We depend on word-of-mouth to grow readership. More readers, the more we can do for our readers!

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

Hello From Las Vegas! With Cirque du Soleil’s “Love” show about to launch , we thought is would be a good time to review the Fab Four, a long-running Beatles tribute show. In honor of The Scinta’s move to The Sahara, we dug up live TV performance from our archives. Plus summer cooking and grilling tips from Vegas’ hottest chefs. This and much, much more in this issue. Read on!

Cirque du Elvis – Cirque du Soleil has indeed confirmed that they are working on an Elvis based show. Don’t get in to much of a rush to buy tickets: The show isn’t scheduled to open until 2008, and then only as a touring Cirque show. Which should have it fine-tuned and probably hitting Las Vegas right about the time That MGM’s Project CityCenter opens.

With their Beatles-themed “Love” show on the verge of opening at The Mirage and this proposed Elvis-themed show, Cirque du Soleil is making a smart move to keep public interest. As spectacular as their shows are, themed Cirque shows could reach a saturation point. But combine their style with well-loved music icons, and you have surefire hits!

Awards Shows – This past week saw the Academy of Country Music Awards broadcast life from the MGM Grand and Thursday night’s taping of VH1 Rock Honors show paying tribute to Queen, Judas Priest, Kiss and Def Leppard (airs May 31 on VH1). Las Vegas hosts numerous nationally televised music award shows throughout the year and these are ticketed events that the general public can attend. As always, stay subscribed to this newsletter and we’ll always let you know about coming entertainment.

Check out our selection for yourself: NBA Playoffs (Dallas, Phoenix, Miami, Detroit), Baseball, NFL 2006, College Football, Auto Racing and Boxing.

Fab Four Beatles Tribute

Reviewed May, 2006
by Phil Arnold

fab four beatles show las vegas

So you are going to see a show by a band impersonating the Beatles. What do you suppose the show is going to be like? I figured it would be some guys in wigs who would play a few songs and well, that would be it.

The Fab Four is better than that. Let’s get too it. The best thing about the Fab Four, a Beatles tribute band is their sound. They sound like the Beatles, and they do a great job of playing the Beatles music. Listening to this show was like watching and listening to a musical autobiography. Click to Read Complete Review

Spark Up the Grill — Summertime Cooking Tips From Las Vegas! The weather heats up, mouth-watering scents waft through the air and you can almost taste the steaks cooking in the neighbor’s yard. Time to spark up the grill! But don’t just toss a chunk of beef on the barbecue; take some advice from the expert chefs of MGM MIRAGE. They’ll have you grilling like a pro and ready to host a backyard barbecue in no time. Here’s just a sampling:

Chef Michael Mina – Michael Mina Bellagio, Nobhill and Seablue at MGM Grand

Tips on grilling fish:


  • Always use a grill basket like the kind sold in specialty kitchen equipment shops. The basket is Teflon coated, which will ensure your fish doesn’t stick, and clamps together at the handle to hold the fish in place and allow easy flipping. Using a fish basket is the most important thing you can do to grill fish successfully.
  • Work over a hot grill – white coals are ideal.
  • Use fish with skin on. There’s nothing better than crispy-skinned fish. The skin of most fish is perfectly edible and becomes crisp and delicious when grilled over a very hot grill. The skin also protects the meat from overcooking. It’s fine to grill and eat the skin of all snappers, bass, salmon, halibut, and cod. Take the skin off of grouper, monkfish, skate and a few others. If in doubt, ask your fish monger.
  • Cook the fish about 7 minutes per inch of thickness. Flip the fish halfway through the cooking time.
  • Let the fish rest after it comes off the grill. The fish should rest three minutes for each inch of thickness. Resting allows the inside to continue cooking while the temperature evens out. Resting also allows the fish to reabsorb some of its juices, making it seem moister.
  • Throw wood chips or herbs directly on the fire to flavor the smoke. You can buy smoking chips at any grocery store, or try throwing bunches of rosemary, thyme, basil, sage or any other herb right on the coals to subtly perfume the fish with their flavor. In the Mediterranean it is traditional to throw dried fennel fronds and branches right on the fire while the fish cooks. These can be gathered from almost any backyard in California, or purchased at some specialty food purveyors.


  • Try to put the fish directly on the grill grate, unless you have a lot of experience grilling fish — it’s likely to stick and break apart when you try to flip or remove it.
  • Let the grill flare up or let open flames come in contact with the fish, this will cause a burnt oil taste and leave smudge marks all over your catch.
  • Use old fish. Always buy the freshest fish you can afford. Nothing will make more of a difference in the outcome of your barbecue than using fresh fish. Some tips for identifying fresh fish: the smell, fresh fish will smell clean and like the ocean, not fishy; on most species the eyes will be clear if the fish is fresh; press the sides of the fish — it will feel firm not mushy if it is fresh; the gills should be bright red, nut faded; slime, slime is a good thing, fish have a natural coating of slime when they are very fresh that disappears rapidly as they age.
  • Use an excessive amount of oil on the fish, this will cause the grill to flare up and smudge your fish.
Chef Brian Massie – FIX and STACK at Bellagio

Tips on grilling meat:

  • Salt & peppering two days before will help break down sinew and add depth to thicker cuts of meat. Season and leave uncovered in fridge and air dry.
  • Partial Brine – dipping cuts of meat in a brine solution is a great way to season meats and impart seasoning to the center of the meat.
  • Full Brine — another form of marinating. This style of marinating will allow the meat to retain its juices and not become dried out, also helps season the center of the steak or chop with add exterior flavor. Basic recipe: 1 gallon water, 1 cup salt, ¢ cup sugar, 1 head of garlic, lime juice and peel of 1 lime, pepper corns, cinnamon stick.
  • All meat should be at room temperature before grilling. This will help ensure even cooking throughout and will eliminate over-charring and raw centers.
  • Bone-In vs. Bone-Out – protein will always look and taste better with the bone in rather than without. The end product will have a much richer and natural flavor. The bone also helps protect the meat from overcooking and charring. Any steak that has an attached bone will ultimately become a more tender product.

Members Mania – We Love Our Readers!

Readers WriteHey Ted, Always love the news letter. I have seen you answer questions in some issues. Was wondering if you could answer one for me.

I am planning on being in LV on Xmas and the week after, ….are the majority of shows dark for the holidays, or are there still many to choose from??


Robert from Carrollton, Texas

Ted Responds – The 10 days leading up to Christmas are the slowest of the year (usually with some pretty low room rates) and the crowds and lines are way down. The downside is that most of the shows do take that time off. Both to give their performers a break and because of the lower visitor numbers. If I recall correctly, the Bellagio sometimes even uses this time to shut down the fountains for maintenance.

However, Christmas is actually starting to be a pretty busy time as more and more families are using Las Vegas as their hub to meet up and celebrate the holiday. Following Christmas, everything gets back into high gear as New Year’s Eve is only a week later.

Whether gunning for a cheap pre-Christmas room, or just to lock in a room for New Year’s Eve, I generally suggest everyone get serious about booking their rooms now. The “secret” of pre-Christmas low rates starts to get out, drives up prices as we get later in the year. New Year’s rates start high and only go up as the year goes along.
