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

Hello from Las Vegas! The weather is great, The Strip is lively, and Las Vegas is on pace for a record number of visitors this year! Memorial Day is just around the corner, and this is the hottest, craziest, most action packed time of the year short of New Year’s Eve.

Because we are hooked up with a nationwide discount rates hotel provider (low rates at hotels you know and trust), don’t sit home this coming holiday weekend. Whether visiting us in Las Vegas, visiting the beach, mountains, lake or the relatives, click here for hot low Memorial Day Weekend hotel rates.

New Look – Those with sharp eyes will notice a new look to the top of this newsletter and our main page at Over the next few weeks, we’ll be revamping and improving all areas of our site with this new look, more features, and easier navigation so you can find what you want!

Access Vegas Minute – You can hear the audio companion to this newsletter at Access Vegas Minute.

Lance Burton – (pictured at right levitating Pamela Anderson during a recent Tonight Show appearance) will be co-presenting on the American Country Music Awards for the 2nd year in a row. He will, of course do a little magic with the envelope.

Josh Turner is his co-presenter for Record of the Year. The 39th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, “Country’s Night To Shine” Telecast to Air Live From Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas Wednesday, May 26th At 8:00 PM ET/PT on the CBS Television Network. Click for Lance Burton’s Las Vegas show info.

Free Golf Magazine – to our readers. We know many of you come to Las Vegas to hit the links, and we’re able to offer something special to our golfing readers: A completely free subscription to Golf Magazine magazine (without commitments of any kind). This is not a misprint, but it is limited time offer for our subscribers. Click for your complimentary GOLF Magazine subscription! Itching to golf on your next visit to Las Vegas? Check out our Las Vegas golf section.

David Copperfield’s – “An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion” returns to the MGM Grand June 3-16 and again July 8-21. This show gets our highest personal recommendation and the opportunity to see Copperfield in the MGM Grand’s intimate 740-seat Hollywood Theatre (as opposed to some of the bigger venues he plays around the world) shouldn’t be passed up. Click to read our review. Tickets are available at (toll free) 800-696-5721 or click to book David Copperfield online.

New VIP Section – Las Vegas has amazing shows, events and concerts but getting tickets for the likes of Celine Dion, Danny Gans or “O” by Cirque Du Soleil can be tough. Same for nailing great seats to the mega-star concert tours that rage through Las Vegas!

We’ve got the solution: Premium seats to Las Vegas events. Yes, you’ll pay a little more but this is a special trip. Why not see that special event up close, or get tickets to a sold out event. Make this Vegas vacation the most fun and special for you or that special person in your life. Not coming to Vegas? We also have tickets for all sports events (including sold out playoff games) and major concerts in other cities. Click to see all available events!

á See the Grand Canyon in a Jet Helicopter! For years Maverick Helicopters has been providing a true VIP Helicopter experience of the Grand Canyon. We do things a little different than any other helicopter Company. We give you an adventure of a lifetime and not just another tour of the Grand Canyon. Las Vegas Strip tours plus Helicopter Weddings also available!

Imperial Palace Auto Collection Features
Steve McQueenÆs Big Chief

The Auto Collections at the Imperial Palace has added a two-wheel masterpiece to its display of classic, collector and vintage autos. A 1923 Indian Big Chief with matching princess side car is on display and for sale on the showroom floor.

The legendary motorcycle was owned by movie star Steve McQueen and custom restored for him by pinstriping and restoration master Von Dutch. The bike still has the official Von Dutch signature card fiberglassed onto the floor board of the side car.

The motorcycle was sold at the McQueen estate auction in 1984 and comes with full papers authenticated by Terry and Chad McQueen. The historic motorcycle is valued at $250,000.

The Imperial Palace is home to the award-winning tribute show Legends In Concert and the all-new Legends Pit featuring celebrity look-alike blackjack dealers.
