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

Hello From Las Vegas! I for one am certainly thankful that winter seems to be over. December is the coldest month of the year (and the least fun as it gets dark so early). 104 F (our average high for July and August) doesn’t phase me. Lows around freezing? That’s an issue. Sunshine has been plentiful and sunsets have had a spectacular pink hue lately.

Fremont Street “North” – head honcho Tony Hsieh (pronounced Shay) is on a single-handed mission to completely finish reviving downtown Las Vegas. Granted, the momentum was already there with the revitalization of East Fremont Street (aka Fremont East), a new performing arts center, new Golden Nugget tower, and complete overhauls of the El Cortez, Gold Spike, and Plaza.

Buried in a recent story about how he’d like to buy the 51’s (our AAA minor league baseball team) was an interesting note about improving the infrastructure of the current stadium which sits just 7 blocks north of Fremont Street (about the same distance as Plaza to El Cortez). This could encourage people to walk from downtown to the stadium (actually walking on Las Vegas Blvd. North) just as people now walk the Fremont East area.

This area is already called the Culture Corridor as it is home to the Las Vegas Library , the Las Vegas Natural History Museum , the Las Vegas Shakespeare Company , Lied Discovery ChildrenÆs Museum , The Neon Museum , the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort and State Historic Park. Of course, it is also home to some boarded up buildings and a few empty lots. I’m not suggesting that this is all going to happen overnight. It was upwards of a decade ago that you heard me predicting the renaissance that we’ve now seen downtown.

He’d also really be in a position to boost baseball attendance among younger people, making attending a game a “happening” thing to do. How? Simple: Give any unsold tickets to the 1000+ employees which will be working downtown when Zappos finishing moving their headquarters.

Mark my words: I believe some of the greatest increase in housing values in the next few years will be in the general downtown area (within 2 miles of the downtown core). These houses built in the 50’s are often going for under $60k, making them super-affordable to the young Zappos employees and others who are now loving downtown and will crave living close to both work and all of the cool new hangouts.

Five Best – Lots of “Best Of 2011” coming out lately. This week, we’re sharing a list courtesy of David and Alicia Ivy from the show Pub Crawl:

  • Best Nachos (Tie) – Volcano Nachos at Margaritaville (Flamingo Hotel) and Irish Nachos at McMullan’s Irish Pub (4650 W Tropicana Ave)
  • Best Casino Bar – Vesper (Cosmopolitan Hotel)
  • Best Restaurant Bar – Bootlegger (7700 Las Vegas Blvd South)
  • Best Place To Spend 5 Hours – Nine Fine Irishmen (New York, New York Hotel)
  • Best Pizza – Due Forni Pizza and Wine (3555 S Town Center Dr)
  • Best Dive Bar – Cheers (UNLV at Harmon)

Midnight Hockey – A couple times per year, the Las Vegas Wranglers (our local minor league hockey team) plays at midnight. The most recent outing, they drew over 4500 people! They are doing it again on the night of Feb. 19 (tickets). If you’re a hockey fan and want a unique experience, you might want to check it out. Las Vegas is a great place to live if you are a night owl or super-early riser. With all the overlapping shifts at the hotels, casinos, and nightclubs, there’s usually something interesting happening somewhere!

Coming Events Listings – We’ve created a new site just for listing specific events at We’ll always be adding to it and linking the events in each newsletter:

Better Treatment For International Visitors – This June, international flight arrivals will move to McCarran’s Terminal 3, leaving the terrible,e dated, cramped Terminal 2 behind. It has been ironic that those who fly the furthest always had the worst entry to our fair city. Terminal 3 will feature seven gates for international arrivals, a large and modern customs area, and some fine dining for those with time to kill. (No one really wants to eat fast food before a 12 hour flight).

Enjoy This Issue!

What Is Up With The Lady Luck? – This is one of the most consistent questions we’ve received over the past couple of years. Here’s the latest:

The City of Las Vegas is trying to sweeten the pot for the Lady Luck owners to make it worth their while to get underway on the upgrades and renovation needed to re-open. The city is considering selling the city-owned land north of the hotel to the Lady Luck owners at a significant discount. However, the present economic climate might still make any construction/renovation financing tough.

Menopause The Musical – Laughing With Life’s Changes

by Sarah Steinberg

Since March 2001, the hilarious show “Menopause The Musical” has entertained and inspired women from coast-to-coast and internationally. The work of writer Jeanie Linders, “Menopause The Musical” is a 90-minute production that’s sure to tickle the funny bone. Whether you’ve been through menopause or not, this makes for an evening you’ll never forget.

The show is a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or who have survived the dreaded change. For our four not-so-young gals, it’s the dreadful change. We follow the trials and tribulations, mostly the trials, of four women: the business executive, the housewife from Iowa, the washed-up soap star and the middle-aged hippie.

Stripper 101 – Saucy, Sexy Sin City Fun

By Devon Brooke Clasen

A class not likely to be found at any university, Stripper 101 at Planet Hollywood offers lascivious ladies not only some sexy striptease skills, but also an afternoon of exercise, laughter and lessons in a truly enviable Sin City art form.

Arriving at the V theatre, attendees are directed to a small bar area for a short wait, where they may survey a variety of center stage performances staged in the Miracle Mile shops, including magic, acrobatics and comedy. Each participant is presented with a waiver release form, which they’re told they must sign before participating in this physical and somewhat rigorous class. A cocktail is included with the purchase of a ticket, no doubt aiding the ladies with the release of inhibitions required to attend such a tantalizing tutorial.

Members Mania – We Love Our Readers!

I love the news letter and read it every time it comes out. Thank you.

I have to tell you about our last fabulous trip to Vegas. We are a little bit over average players and haunt mostly HarrahÆs properties with the occasional foray into Bellagio Mandalay Bay.

We were playing at Caesars and I hit $30,004 I ran to my wife who was thrilled, and she immediately hit $10,000 on some machine. Needless to say it was great but doesnÆt end there for a break we went to Bellagio and she hit another $10,000. Bellagio then bought us dinner and to show our thanks we hit a couple of other small jack pots. It was a great day.

We got a lock box at HarrahÆs and went to Fremont Street and damn if she didnÆt hit $10,000 at the Golden Nugget (sheÆs my favorite wife).

This trip was beyond our wildest dreams and of course I went to the Big boy room and played the big boy machines and won a little there I had Caesars cut a check so I didnÆt get drunk and blow it all.

We came home paid off every bill we had (except the cars and the house) and had enough left over to give to my good Uncle Sam on April the 15th.

I know that this was a once in a life time trip and will treasure it always, but I wanted to share it with you and say the Strip pays OK on occasion.

Jerry from Vero Beach Florida


Ted Responds:

Wow… that is one incredible run and the thing dreams are made of. Thank you so much for sharing it with us and let’s have some of that luck rub off to the rest of our readers for their next trip here to Las Vegas!

Say what you will about budget hotels my wife and I have returned to the Trop every year since 2001. It’s a little seedy sure, but the laid back atmosphere, the beautiful pool and old Vegas ambiance is as good as it gets. Add to that a Garden room with outdoor patio among the palm trees while enjoying a brandy and soda — heaven on earth. Good Lord willing, we’ll be back — at the Trop.


Ted Responds:

Mark Jacobs (our News Researcher/Editor) had his parents in town a few weeks ago. They booked before he really knew and had a chance to take care of them. (They didn’t want to “trouble” us plus they had friends with them).

They stayed at Tropicana and had no problems at all, and found it a good value. The pool is great, and the location is great. Because the Tropicana is always a candidate for getting bought out and/or imploded, they aren’t pouring money into upgrading it. But despite the amount of feedback we get from visitors, I can’t remember the last time someone had a complaint about the “bang-for-the-buck” at Trop.

I recently visited Vegas for 4 days and enjoyed it. BUT the tables and slots are getting very, very difficult to win at. It is once in a blue moon that you win anything. I thoroughly enjoy Vegas and always have. I have probably made at least 15-20 trips there.á

Due to the ôtightnessö IÆll probably look elsewhere from here on in. The last few trips I keep telling myself that things will get better but they actually got worse. IÆll miss everything else about Vegas but when I gamble I need to win every once in awhile.

Thanks for the newsletter I enjoy that as well.

Christopher Kujawa

Ted Responds:

You aren’t the only one. While it is still possible to come and have a great run like Jerry did or at least go home a winner, table game rules are worse and slots seem tighter. You used to be able to put $20 in a machine and know you’d get some decent play. Now it seems like you might as well set the $20 bill on fire. As I’ve noted before, Nevada gaming revenue is down. Perhaps if they gave you a better shot at winning (like they did for decades), people would be willing to play more.

Thanks for the input and thanks for reading. Please do tell your Vegas visiting friends about the newsletter!

I really look forward to receiving your wonderful news letter. I have been going to Las Vegas at least once a year for over 30 years now and I enjoy the town but I REALLY enjoy the news letter. so, keep up the outstanding good work!!á
