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

Hello From Las Vegas …and long time no see! We put the newsletter on hiatus while we’ve been doing some extensive expanding and improving of More insider information, more giveaways, more stuff to do and see. We’ll detail much of it in this newsletter issue!

Insider Vibe – As you can see, we’ve changed the newsletter name as we prepare to split our content into two newsletters. This newsletter will continue to cover visitor information with your usual insider aspect. We’ll be spinning off our Vegas Update (see info this issue) focusing on the Las Vegas news stories that interest the world.

On a personal note, a big thanks to all the encouraging notes throughout the year as I battle back from some severe health issues. Never thought at the “ripe old age” of 39 I’d be dealing with a major health problem (long-term toxic household mold exposure and lasting immune system complications … mold can kill). I have a ways to go, but I’m improving every week, happy to be “back in the saddle” and as excited as ever about my city … Las Vegas!

Show Review – Neil Sedaka: Playing at The Orleans August 16-21, 2005. Click for Neil Sedaka Ticket Info

Reviewed June 15, 2005
Nancy Hruska

Neil Sedaka“I’m the king of Tra La La’s and Doo Wop’s,” Sedaka humbly confessed.

It looks as though even after 4 decades of recording, Neil Sedaka is still able to make a rose-tossing full house at The Orleans cry and sing along to “Breaking up is Hard to do.” The truth is, no matter which age or demographic one belongs to; the heavy weight Pop pioneer will belt out some velvet anthem of which everyone knows the words.

His name sounds familiar to at least everyone with a record player, but who is Neil Sedaka? Oh just another face in the music industry; one of which had his songs recorded by the lesser known Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. Not to mention a managing hand launching the careers of Neil Diamond, Carole King, and Paul Simon. But no one should assume his seasoned career would give him any less energy on stage now than 40 years ago. The man can soft shoe and sing smooth hits as though it’s his first day in showbiz.

Gambling Talk: Craps Made Easy – with Victor H. Royer. I often receive questions from my readers about the grand old casino game of Craps. What most people like to know is: Why does the game look so complicated? Well, it only looks that way. In reality, Craps is not only among the better casino games, but is also not nearly as difficult to play and understand as it may first seem. This week, click to read the article Craps Made Easy.
