Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – Well, throughout the fall, winter, and spring, we (here in Las Vegas), see social media postings when others have a warm weather streak. More often than not, it says “We’re warmer than Las Vegas!”

Looking at the weather this past weekend, I have a simple thought for many of you in the Midwest and Eastern regions of the United States: Don’t try this at home!

Leave it to those of us who are profssional Desert Dwellers. Those of us who walk out into super-hot weather and go… “Oh, not too bad today”.

As June turns into July, we’re 1/3 of the way through our three hot months. No trip on the horizon? As we always tell you, October is the absolute best month of the year to visit us. Not too hot, not too cold, light winds (which is not always the norm in other months, as we’re in the middle of a rugged desert), and very few kids and strollers.

You Still Have Time – Some of you got our email last week noting that we’re offering a special discount to our brand new and greatly enlarged membership program. If you’ve looked over all the details in the past, and simply skipped because you felt it wasn’t for you… don’t do yourself a disservice and skip checking out all of the new offerings!

We know that you not only want to save on your next visit, but we also KNOW that you want to be among the 1% best informed Las Vegas visitors (and be able to chuckle at all of the people around you here who don’t know everything you do).

We also KNOW that the internet is creating more BAD Las Vegas information than GOOD! We monitor lots of Las Vegas forums and groups (so that our members won’t have to waste their time, which alone makes the cost of the membership worth it). We’re in daily SHOCK at the amount of bad info out there. On stuff that can make or break your trip (and your wallet)!

We’re offering a 31% discount on our new, huge, greatly expanded membership — complete with exclusive access to the members area 24/7, jam packed with tons of helpful information for your next visit — but only through July 9. Simply click the link below to explore before this opportunity passes you by:

Benefits plus Discount!

Booking The Right Seat On Your Flight – On a recent forum we monitor, someone asked where they should sit on the plane for a view of The Strip and/or Grand Canyon while flying in. People chimed in with all kinds of answers. Which just confused the situation. Why?

There is no CORRECT answer. People are telling you what happened on their trips. I’ve lived here 25 years and have landed and taken off in just about every direction.

The “calm wind” runway, IE, the one that gets used most of the time, is the runway where the planes land facing the west. Hence, sitting on the right side of the plane is generally your best bet.

That is, unless winds start to get over the 20 knots-per-hour speed. At that point, the airport will start to direct planes to the runway that is (as much as possible) facing into the winds. Landing facing the wind actually lowers the speed of the airplane upon touchdown, and creates the most safety cushion. Also, planes will NOT land on a runway that has more than 10 knots-per-hour of tailwind (wind coming from behind).

HOWEVER, Las Vegas is a very windy place and the winds can come from any direction. For example, if the wind is strong from the north, planes will take off and land facing north. Which makes the LEFT side of the plane have the view. If the wind is strong from the east, once again, the LEFT side of the plane will have the view.

Similar is true regarding seeing the Grand Canyon from the plane. It depends on where you are flying in from, and what approach (routing that can start a couple of hundred miles out) is in use. As a rule of thumb: When flying in from the South (Dallas, Atlanta, etc), the canyon will be on your right. But when flying in from the North (Salt Lake, Chicago, New York), it will be on your left. However, that is just a rule of thumb. Depending on the wind and air traffic routing, all bets can be off.

If you really want to geek out and watch a map of the airplanes flying in and out of Las Vegas (or anywhere else) in real time, we use and suggest Flight Radar 24. However, keep in mind that even if you are flying an airline where you get to pick your seat if you are early, how the planes are landing at that time does not mean that is how they will be landing when you land.

The odds are with you if you sit on the right side. However, like anything else in Las Vegas, it is a gamble!

Unfortunate Passings – We usually try to keep it happy here. However, I’d be remiss in mentioning a couple of local celebrity deaths:

– Pawn Star’s Richard “The Old Man” Harrison passed away at age 77 after battling Parkinson’s. Many years ago when the show was relatively new (and there were no lines), I was able to get this signed logo shot glass:

Pawn Stars shop and 2. How to meet Rick Harrison during your visit. And no, this isn’t some VIP deal. Rick enjoys meeting fans. At no cost. You just have to know when and where.

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – June has been generally kind when it comes to the weather. With a couple of exceptions, we’ve been around 100F the entire month. We jump to 110F briefly later this week before getting back down to a seasonal 104F. For all the talk of people how Las Vegas is 115F everyday in the summer, the reality is that both July and August average just over 100F.  That according to readings taken at the airport, which (as most of you know) is very close to The Strip!

Stay Hydrated, My Friends – The Dos Equis guy may have made famous the phrase “Stay Thirsty, My Friends”. However, that is the last thing you want to happen in Las Vegas. Especially on The Strip where the distances are so great. (Downtown on Fremont Street, you are never more than a few minutes from any casino to a sundry store where cheap water is plentiful).

Obviously, if you plan carefully, you can grab water at the pharmacies on The Strip, or from the street vendors selling bottled water. However, if you are in the middle of one of the huge Strip casinos, your options get a bit more thin. You can hunt down the gift shop, where it still isn’t going to be super-cheap. You can buy water from a bar, where they will sell you a tiny bottle  for many dollars. You may even take an empty glass and stick it under the warm/hot water that comes from the restroom faucets.

Every year we remind members of a better option. And, because hydration is so important and we don’t want anyone getting ill, we’re suggesting another option:

Go up to a bar with $1 in your hand, and as you place it on the other side of the bar (like you do when you tip), say “Can I please get an ice water in a pint glass, filled halfway with ice?” They get $1 for doing 10 seconds worth of work, and you don’t die of thirst!

Also, if you are asking for a drink while playing, it is perfectly acceptable to ask for a bottle of water at the same time. Just remember to tip and extra $1. Most don’t realize that!

We have a couple hundred similar tips neatly organized in our Members Area. Just a few of them will be more valuable than the price of membership, and help you have your best Las Vegas vacation every the next time you visit. Plus, access is now INSTANT!

No More Rio Seafood Buffet – In our members edition, we go over this recent change, and suggest where you might want to go instead.

Hope you are enjoying this issue!

In addition to new pieces from contemporary artists, visitors can see works from heavyweights like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Worhol and Takashi Murakami.

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – We pushed my column early last week to members, as it had important information about the pending strike at most Las Vegas hotels. In it, we gave the lengthy real dirt on what would happen, what wouldn’t happen, what to expect, and some “must do” tips if visiting during a hotel strike here.

We are happy to report that both Caesars Entertainment (Total Rewards) and MGM Resorts (Mlife) have settled with the union. Come rain or shine, union members will get a 2.7% pay raise each year for the next five years. Details have yet to come out about what was agreed to regarding the other concerns they were voicing.

When this happens, the rest of the smaller/independent properties usually fall into line. Hence, highly unlikely we’ll see any disruption unless one of the independent operators wants to try to bust the union at his hotel. This happened a couple of decades ago as the last strike stretched on for many years at The Frontier. So, with some of this still up in the air, (members) don’t delete that special report I sent out last week.

We’ll be back to my normal column next week.

Hope you are enjoying this issue!

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – Well, the big news in these parts is that our NHL expansion team Golden Knights are headed to the Stanley Cup finals. Yes, yes, I get it. Hockey is a niche sport, and if you didn’t grow up around it, or you don’t live in an NHL city, you probably don’t care. I’ll have to admit — although I watched just about every game from the very first one here — I had a learning curve. I’m still trying to get used to having two halftimes!

However, they are our team. Born here in Las Vegas. For a transient city that so many dismiss as a plausible place to even live, it has done wonders for our community. Huge viewing parties drawing thousands of people have taken place outside the Red Rock, The D, and outside of the actual arena. (Due to the high-tech nature of the new arena, they can actually display the game on the side of the arena).

If you want to attend history, we have PRIME seats available for games in both cities. Note: I didn’t say they were cheap! This is a historic Stanley Cup finals. Head on over to Tickets.AccessVegas.com and see what is still available!

If the Golden Knights win the championship, sportsbooks are going to take a bath. The team was given odds of 500-1 chance to win it all before the season began, and plenty of people put money down. If nothing else, figuring the ticket would be a souvenir To put thing into perspective, a $20 bet at 500-1 will payoff $10,000. That is not a typo.

Must Do Before You Visit – As credit card companies continue to want to reduce their exposure to fraudulent charges, it is getting more and more likely that you’ll at least get a “Did you just spend this much in this location” text, if not having larger purchases declined altogether. (Plus, that text won’t do any good if you’re low on battery and have had to turn your phone off).

While seasoned travelers have been following this advice for years, we can’t overemphasize the importance of calling your credit card companies (the ones you’ll be using on the trip), and alerting them that you’ll be vacationing in a certain city on certain dates. It only takes a few minutes, and is far less of a hassle then just finishing a very expensive meal at one of our fine restaurants, only to be told your card is declined. (Which will result in you having to call the credit card anyway, answer security questions, and assure them thatyou are indeed making the charge).

Bonus Tip: Be Prepared For This Unexpected Charge – This additional tip, which gives you a heads-up to an unexpected major charge you need to be prepared for (and no, we’re not talking resort fees) is available in the members version of this issue. Enjoy instant access to this and all of our member benefits and features at Members.AccessVegas.com!

Barry Manilow Residency Tickets Now On Sale! – The ageless Manilow is pumped up about his return to Las Vegas, which will be at the Westgate (the previous Las Vegas Hilton, conveniently located from almost anywhere on The Strip via the monorail). We have great prices on tickets here: Barry Manilow Las Vegas Tickets

Outdoor Music Festivals Will Return To The Strip – Ever since the Oct. 1 shooting, no one has staged a major outdoor concert on The Strip. That will change on Sept. 22 when the iHeartRadio Daytime Stage show will take place on the Las Vegas Festival grounds, which are across from SLS(ahara). Given that the festival grounds are surrounded by the towers of the Hilton Grand Vacations, SLS, and Allure (condo), I have to imagine new precautions are being taken, and Metro (police) will have sharp-shooters on hand to immediately take out anyone who would try to recreate the Oct. 1 tragedy.

Feedback On Park MGM (former Monte Carlo) Pouring In – Before you consider staying at the “new” Park MGM, and paying what MGM Resorts plans to charge for rooms (or even deciding to take a comp there instead of another MGM property), here are the four things you MUST know:

Five Interesting Las Vegas Buffets To Try This Weekend

The great American buffet — with its endless plates of prime rib, shrimp, pasta, pizza and more — is a tradition that originated in Las Vegas in 1946. Famed Las Vegas publicist Herb McDonald, who was a pioneering force behind El Rancho, the first hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, inadvertently created the nation’s first buffet by lining up a plate of sandwich fixings for hungry gamblers.

In addition, we tell you about the popular local watering hole in that area where you are highly likely to not only see Las Vegas Strip celebs and performers entertain (just for fun, in front of their colleagues and anyone else who walks through the door), but rub elbows with them as well.

Jennifer Lopez Says There’s “Just Something Different” About a Las Vegas Residency

The marquee lights on the iconic Las Vegas strip have not always been so bright. Decades ago, they glowed with the names of famous headliners like Tony Bennett and Wayne Newton, but the lights faded and the Strip came to be known as a place for performers to play their final shows.

Everytime I go to Vegas I rent a car for the week as my timeshare has great parking. My boyfriend is going for the first time with me (his second visit to Vegas). He doesn’t want to rent a car at all. Can you please leave me all your pros to having a car available to you so I can share with him more than just my person pros (ie… Grocery shopping, cheaper everything, cool off strip stuff). Feel free to share things you did you’re glad you had a car for.

Amy Casperson

 

Ted Responds:

Oh my, where to start. I have suggestions for everything from parks to sights to restaurants to a whole mix of everything else!

– You already mentioned groceries. However, restaurants (including good ones) just a few blocks from The Strip are SO much cheaper. For example, the lauded Herbs and Rye is one of the best steakhouses in town, and has a mixology program second-to-none.

And, they have two daily happy hours where EVERYTHING is 1/2 price!

In the first couple of miles of West Sahara (once you go under the freeway), you will find mom and pop restaurants of just about every ethnicity under the sun. Seriously, pull up Google Maps, zoom in on that area, and type restaurants.
