This Issue: Venetian Update

Curious about a restaurant, event, or other Las Vegas attraction that looks fun? Let us review it for you first! Suggestions are always welcome at: [email protected]


Rental Cars – Don’t pay top dollar! Enter the dates of your visit and compare prices from virtually every major rental car agency (most US cities). Book the lowest price company or your regular agency. Save the hassle and some money – Car Rental Savings Search. Few regret renting a car. Free shuttles and city bus rides can be slow and smelly. Taxis can cost what a rental car costs. Your vacation time is valuable — make the most out of it!


LAS VEGAS NEWS – of interest to tourists:

NATIONAL FINALS RODEO – is less than 5 weeks away. This “Superbowl of Rodeo” runs December 3-12 this year and the event is a must for fans of country or rodeo. Even if you can’t get a ticket, the town turns into cowboy central with Wranglers and cowboy hats dominating the landscape and country music everywhere you turn. Rooms fill up pretty fast, so come for one of the weekends or see if you can get a few days off and book your room at http://www.accessvegas.com

SPORTS AND MUSIC FESTIVAL 3 – was shot at the Hard Rock hotel and other spots here in Las Vegas and will air November 13’th on MTV. This program will feature music by the Foo Fighters, Blink 182, Juvenile and Smash Mouth as well as 4 world record attempts. (Note: the show has already been taped, and we alerted you to those dates a month ago. Don’t show up expecting to see something live that weekend).

SO THE WATER TASTES FUNNY – in Las Vegas. It certainly does. Most tourists and many locals drink bottled water. We personally get our drinking water from Water and Ice here in Las Vegas ( http://www.accessvegas.com/waterandice ). But is it safe? Yes. The majority of it comes from Lake Mead, which is quite pure because of the lack of agriculture and industry along it’s banks. You can read more at http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1999/Oct-27-Wed-1999/news/12200281.html

PARTY LIKE IT’S 1999 – Las Vegas is ready. Beyond ready. Everything from law enforcement to our water supply delivery and treatment has been checked and tested. If you are one of the few avoiding spending New Year’s Eve with us here because of fear that the world will end, you may find the following two articles of interest: http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1999/Oct-29-Fri-1999/news/12248031.html and http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/1999/Oct-31-Sun-1999/news/12043342.html

NEW YEARS EVE LAS VEGAS ROOMS – are still available! Call Hotel Reservations Network at (800) 666-5268 for a free price quote! NOTE: You MUST stay on the line until you get a person. HRN is NOT booking these specific dates online. We will be leaving this notice up as long as rooms continue to be available, but they are starting to go fast.
