Hello From Las Vegas! – After a cold, windy weekend, we’ll be bouncing back to seasonal temperatures (around 60F for a high) this coming week. Bummer for the weekend visitors, who are getting subjected to the low 50’s and tons of wind (gusts up to 30 mph). We live in the desert, and weather can bounce all over the place. Also, what is balmy to some of you from cold climates is going to feel chilly to someone from Southern California.
The Hottest Ticket In Town? – No, it isn’t Celine. The red-hot Vegas Golden Knights hockey team are proving to be a huge hit. While their great record isn’t hurting attendance, the big news is the popularity of the games with visitors. MGM’s “The Park” (the area leading from The Strip to T-Mobile arena) is filled with visitors from the opposing team’s city, sporting their gear. On top of that, we’re hearing from people who are simply hockey fans, and going to see games even if their team isn’t involved if the game is happening during their stay!
If you have even given any thought to a road trip to watch your team play ours, here’s some advice: Don’t delay on buying your tickets. AXS.com is the place where official tickets are sold. (Don’t try Ticketmaster). If they are sold out, or you don’t like the price or selection, come by our Tickets.AccessVegas.com and see what we have.
This is a resale market, which means we may have better seats than what are left through the official site, or we may even have cheaper seats based on demand. If a number of season ticket holders aren’t attending, those tickets end up on sites like ours.
The Rest Of The Story – Over in our Premium Advantage members-supported version of this issue (more content, free reports, 150 archived exclusive Las Vegas tips and tricks, ALL of 2017’s issues archived, hundreds of no-coupon-needed updated food and drink specials on The Strip and Fremont Street), we discuss the conspiracy theories surrounding the Oct. 1. shooting, when Las Vegas hotel pool season starts, interesting fun facts about our two towers (Stratosphere and Eiffel), and a fun story about the Las Vegas “Chip” monk from Guardian Angel Cathedral right on the Las Vegas Strip.
Oh, and which Las Vegas casino is running lucky for the players with TWO million-dollar jackpots awarded in the past month! (Hint: It is one you probably haven’t thought of gambling at).
You get instant access to it all at Members.AccessVegas.com plus this is the last call for using the promo code VEGAS2018 to save 25% off of your one-year subscription.
Hope you are enjoying this issue!

In a city where lounge acts are nearly extinct, a new pre-dinner show is reviving vintage Vegas in an ideal setting. “The Cocktail Cabaret” takes guests back in time at 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, thanks not only to the music but also to the kitschy venue: Cleopatra’s Barge, a floating lounge at Caesars Palace.
The extensive Palazzo renovations are finally starting to bear fruit, this week in the form of new cocktail lounge Rosina. It’s the creation of Sam Ross and David Rabin, the team behind The Venetian’s award-winning Dorsey bar. The pair has created a more personal experience this time around.
Las Vegas-known for its bright lights, lush colors and vibrant nightlife-serves as an adult playground for people from all over the world. To showcase the city’s past glitz and charm, a newly released book features life in Sin City from 1950 to 1980.

I am wondering what your thoughts are on BAZ at the Palazzo. I was reading some disheartening reviews about sales but apparently there are cheap tickets. If so, where can they be purchased etc.
As always, I appreciate your knowledge and the news letter!
The full, unedited Members Mania questions are available to our Premium Members. Members get guarenteed specific help with their Las Vegas questions from our knowledgeable, Las Vegas based staff. We then (where appropriate) share this help with ALL of our members.
In addition, the following three special reports are available IMMEDIATELY to paying members:
1. How To Con The Casino Computers Into Comping You More – This invaluable report will help turn the seldom-comped player into someone on the casino radar, and turn a regularly comped player into getting better offers! This information alone is worth many times the cost of the membership!
2. How To Recover Left Behind Articles From A Cab Virtually Immediately – If you’ve never left anything behind in a cab while on vacation, lucky you. It can ruin your trip. Even if the items get turned in, it can take hours and hours to get them back. We’ll make sure that doesn’t happen to you.
3. How To Avoid Paying Taxes On Many Gambling Wins – Did you know that the casino MUST report any slot or video poker win over $1199 to the IRS (who will tax you on it whether you report it to them or not)? Depending on your tax bracket, this can/will cost you hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars. Learn what you need to know NOW (before you visit the casino) to avoid getting victimized at tax time!
You’ll receive instant access to all of these reports by visiting Members.AccessVegas.com and signing up today.
