Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – The restrictions are nearly over (we have the scoop), Resorts World (former Stardust property) has made a controversial decision you may want to know about, and we have an in-depth article section about the “Don’ts” you need to know regarding the new Circa Las Vegas resort downtown Fremont Street.

Hint: Knowing the Circa “Don’ts” can save your wallet some significant pain, especially with the in-depth options and alternatives we give you the experienced scoop on.

Let’s dive in!


Newkirk’s Notes has been published by AccessVegas.com Founder Ted Newkirk continuously (in one form or another) since 1995.

Ted is a noted and quoted Las Vegas analyst, having been quoted and sourced multiple times in 2020 along in publications ranging from the Las Vegas Review-Journal (Nevada’s largest newspaper) to U.S. News and World Report.

Newkirk’s Notes go well beyond the basic news, rumors, and (often questionable) thoughts and proclamations floating around on the internet. Our Supporting (Paid) Members know not only what is happening, but why, and how they can benefit (or know what to avoid).

For example countless Members have had incredibly enjoyable and successful visits to Las Vegas during COVID simply because they were truly in the know, and not only knew what was happening, but what was on the horizon.

Saving them money, time and inconvenience.

At $34.80 for an entire year (only $2.90 per month), we distill down what you really need to know, so that your trip this spring, summer, or even later in the year turns out to be your best ever. And, we GUARANTEE it.

Especially in these unprecedented times, find out what it is like to ACTUALLY be in the KNOW this time around:

Las Vegas Adds To Its March Madness Legend, With A Regional On Deck And A Final Four Looming

The NCAA Basketball Tournament’s first weekend traditionally draws one of the year’s largest tourism crowds to Las Vegas, before visitation tails off notably for the event’s conclusion over the following two weekends. That’s about to change. In 2023, T-Mobile Arena will host the tournament’s West Regional—the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 rounds—for the first time ever, a development that could cement Las Vegas as a regular tournament host site.

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – Rooms for the March Madness weekend were ridiculously expensive, and worth every penny. We hit our first 80F day of the year, although keep in mind the March average is around 70F. Always pre-check the weather when packing.

Moving forward…


Newkirk’s Notes has been published by AccessVegas.com Founder Ted Newkirk continuously (in one form or another) since 1995.

Ted is a noted and quoted Las Vegas analyst, having been quoted and sourced multiple times in 2020 along in publications ranging from the Las Vegas Review-Journal (Nevada’s largest newspaper) to U.S. News and World Report.

Newkirk’s Notes go well beyond the basic news, rumors, and (often questionable) thoughts and proclamations floating around on the internet. Our Supporting (Paid) Members know not only what is happening, but why, and how they can benefit (or know what to avoid).

At $34.80 for an entire year (only $2.90 per month), we distill down what you really need to know, so that your trip this spring, summer, or even later in the year turns out to be your best ever. And, we GUARANTEE it.

Especially in these unprecedented times, find out what it is like to ACTUALLY be in the KNOW this time around:

Members.AccessVegas.com

MGM Sued Over Resort Fees – Are things finally getting serious? What changes would this mean for you as a visitor? Our Members knew how to (often successfully) contest resort fees in various ways the past 18 months.

Shows Are Back – The extra change made to various show capacities have most shows either back or slated to be back. This also affects sports. We do into all the “need to know”

Major Limo Fire – This Las Vegas happening made national news. However, where were they headed, and why? And, why should anyone thinking about getting married or doing a vow renewal strongly consider this “best kept but in plain sight” wedding venue?

The Mayor Is Livid – With COVID restrictions soon to be turned over from the Governor to the County, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman wasted no time saying “I told you so” to the detractors who lambasted her for having a different idea than the Governor when it came to restrictions just one year ago.

What did she say? We have the direct (unedited, no commentary) footage, and it will help you understand what to expect as Las Vegas continues to reopen.

The Drew Back To Fontainebleau – The big blue monster sitting 2/3 finished on The North Strip has changed hands. Again. What does the future hold, what will affect hotel prices and availability over the next year or two, and what factors would make your next few trips pretty cheap. Or, pretty expensive. Our Members KNOW what to keep an eye on.

Buy Your Airline Tickets Now? – We analyze future trends in airfare and have some advice that may save our Members significantly.

Mark Hall-Patton – If this name rings a bell, you know him as the bearded man in the Amish hats who shows up on Pawn Stars from time-to-time. We link to a great article on him, and tell Members what you should know about his “day job”, and why worth knowing is well worth your time (and, one of the best values in town!)

Virgin Hotels Las Vegas Has A Broad Entertainment Array Coming Our Way

We’re less than a month from the opening of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, and I’m thinking you’re not as excited as you should be.

These Las Vegas Nightclubs and Dayclubs are Reopening

All Vegas nightclubs have been closed for a year now because of the pandemic, right? Wrong. While the state’s COVID restrictions mandate that nightclubs stay closed, a handful of venues have been able to reopen and serve guests safely by changing the way they operate. Packed dancefloors and general admission are not allowed, so reservations are required, and clubs have pivoted into lounge-style experiences in order to meet social distancing and other guidelines.

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – So… this is what was supposed to be the first issue of the year! While I’m doing fairly well with a number of New Year’s resolutions, my intent on putting COVID and bad news in the rear-view mirror crumbled over a number of very unfortunate things I had to report.

So, let’s try again!

Doom And Gloom? – Las Vegas Strip casinos made more than $2.7 billion in profits in 2020. Gaming made up only 1/3 amount of the amount, most likely due to more bargain-seeking visitors who wanted to eat, drink, and hang out. Downtown casinos reported good profitable numbers as well. If Las Vegas can get by under the current limitations and concerns, we’ll bounce back just fine.

Wynn, Venetian, and Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas have achieved Forbes Travel Guide’s Sharecare Health Security verification. Expect more to follow. The diligence of following protocols here in Las Vegas has resulted in making it very rare for people to return home sick. As we’ve constantly reported, keeping you well ahead of the curve.

The False Scare Is Over – As I predicted, the “5 Las Vegas hospitals are at or over 100% ICU capacity” fear-scare news is a thing of the past, and COVID hospitalizations are dropping.

What’s really going on? What do the real numbers say? Is Las Vegas a super-spreader and things are getting worse? Or, can you feel fairly comfortable visiting yet? Our Supporting (Paid) Members continue to be updated on the facts and stats, not simply the news headlines. And, since we are Member-Supported, we report what is best for our Members. Not what the casinos tell us to say.

When Do Shows Return? – Some shows wanted to attempt to operate under the “25% of capacity” limits. However… the 25 foot mandate between performers and the audience is an impossible-to-overcome mandate for just about all shows. It wipes out way too much space. Check out this video of the procurers of Absinthe attempting to make this work.

This is premium information, for our Supporting (Paid) Members only. Along with a practical look at how soon Las Vegas will be back to (or near normal), giving you the upper-and on knowing when to safely book your next visit.

New Years Even A Success, All Things Considered – Normally, this is where I laud Las Vegas for our amazing New Year’s Eve. And, mock New York City’s boring ball drop. Not to mention the mathematically disproven claims that Times Square has a million people. (It is physically impossible to fit one million people into the available space for that celebration).

This year, our famous fireworks celebration was canceled. This did not stop plenty of people enjoying Las Vegas! The Las Vegas Strip was closed, as it is every year. While certainly not as crowded, many tens of thousands enjoyed themselves. For those of you who didn’t catch the live stream from Las Vegas’ KLAS Channel 8, here it is in it’s entirety:

Hit The Road, Jack (Part 1) – We have a loyal contingent of readers who rent a car when they are in town. It isn’t for everyone. However, even if you previously never considered it, the time has never been better.

1. Most Strip properties are currently offering free parking.

2. With basically no shows and tight demand at some restaurants due to capacity limitation, you can not only dine off-Strip, but by doing so you are likely to save the cost of your rental car in the process. (Plus, you’ll encounter some very thankful employees and restaurant proprietors).

3. YOU make the restrictions in your car. Or not!

4. The areas surrounding Las Vegas contains a bucket list of natural wonders which most of you have nothing like where you reside. Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Red Rock Canyon, Valley Of Fire, Zion, Virgin River Gorge, Historic Oatman and Route 66, and I could go on and on.

Next issue, we’ll go over suggestions for day trips, or overnight trips which overnight you at a casino so you don’t miss your evening drinking, gambling, and steak dinner (or whatever your food preferences are).

This issue, we’ll keep it closer to home. I have five (mostly) mom-and-pop joints — mostly hole-in-the-wall kinds of places most of you would never find or try on your own, which are 10 minutes (or less) from both The Strip and Fremont Street.

How do I know about them? They are in my general neighborhood and I patronize them! (Living just a few minutes from The Strip and downtown, but in a nice, quiet neighborhood, does not suck).

Note: None of these are paid endorsements. None of them know of my mention. That is why we are member-supported. I cater to the best interests of our members, and you alone!

All of these places are located on (or just adjacent to) Sahara Avenue, between Palace Station and Arville. You are literally never more than 2.5 miles from The Strip!

You’d drive right by four (of these five) restaurants without giving them a second thought (or even trying them out). And, three are not visible directly from Sahara Ave, which means you’d drive right by them without knowing they were even there!

Hope You Are Enjoying This Issue!

Gordon Ramsay Tried the $777 Burger in Las Vegas and Called It ‘Disgustingly Expensive’ and ‘Bloody Delicious’

 

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is something of a hamburger maven in his own right. His restaurant group encompasses 35 eateries, several of which specialize in them. And he’s no stranger to expensive ones. In fact, his eatery inside London’s Harrods department store even has a $106 burger on the menu. But on the first episode of his newest show, “Gordon Ramsay’s American Road Trip,” the restaurateur tried out an extravagant burger seven times more expensive than that one.

Things We’re Looking Forward to in Las Vegas in 2021

 

What does the Magic 8-Ball see ahead for Las Vegas in 2021? “Reply hazy, try again.” Hmmm. “Outlook good”—that’s more like it. The new year can’t be any worse than 2020, especially in Sin City, where a $600 stimulus will only get you so far at the blackjack table. Things are tough, but the future holds promise with vaccines, trade shows, and 100% dining room capacity on the horizon. Here’s what to look forward to most in Las Vegas as we slowly inch our way into 2021.

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – Wow, wow, wow, lots to talk about. Unfortunately, not a lot of good news. Every time we were ready to send this out, something else happened. This issue was going to be an upbeat New Years Eve recap along with an extended article on the best day (or 2-3 day) trips from Las Vegas now that our 4 weeks of winter is done!

If you are willing to rent a car, you can see “bucket list” sights during the day, a great round of golf (if that’s your thing), and spend your evenings enjoying some decent casino gambling. Without getting seared in the desert sun. So, that is next issue!

The Governor — once again lying about the facts and stats – has extended our “pause” until Mid-February. Which actually means that this will continue to be the best time (possibly EVER) to visit Las Vegas. We’ll go into it! (One must make lemonade out of lemons).

Venetian/Palazzo owner Sheldon Adelson has passed away after a lengthy cancer fight at the age of 87. He was already in the process of working to sell the hotel/casino/convention complex. What will that mean to you? And, to add insult to injury, Siegfried passed away.

With the current news about social media permeating just about every news outlet (including local news), I’ll be making a statement about our social use, both current and planned as the landscape and audiences are seeing a seismic shift.

If you don’t do social, you can skip that part. The core of what we do is right here. What you are reading. However, if you do, you’ll want to stay tuned.

Pause Through Mid-February – The 25% capacity limits will continue through mid-February. Which essentially means virtually no shows at least until then. While he made this announcement based on hospital capacity, I was online looking at the hospitalization stats. Which have continued to drop since the peak of the second spike. A brief recent news splash here highlighted that five local hospital ICU’s were at or just above capacity. Evidently briefly. 

However, University Medical Center continued to emphasize that they have no capacity issues, nor project to have any. More interesting is that two days later, the Governor — when asked — noted that he had not received a hospital briefing since mid-December.

So, off to the website of the Southern Nevada Health Authority to see the latest on hospital capacity. Here’s their data:

Notes: Hospitals were not built to run at low capacity. Capacity is the current range is normal, not abnormal.

Here’s the bottom line: The main problem continues to be private gatherings, where fewer precautions are taken. All you have to do is look at the liquor aisle at my local CVS to see that their stock has been running much lower than usual lately. With some more modest-priced brands either low or sold out, as bar capacity is not only limited, but reservations are required to attend your local bar and grill.

What the problem isn’t? Our tourist areas, where cleanliness, masking, and distancing is mandated as much as is legal and practical. I’ve repeatedly noted that the Department of Health and Human Services records show we’re sending an extremely microscopic number of visitors home sick. And, that is assuming that they caught it here.

If you’d like to visit and really experience a lack of crowds (which makes social distancing often the norm), come mid-week over the next few weeks. Without the usual winter conventions packing the town and driving up room rates, mid-weeks are almost like having Las Vegas all to yourself!

As always, don’t travel, visit, or even leave your home if you feel that you have any risk factors, need to care for those with risk factors, and the like. However, Las Vegas continues to be demonstrably safer than your local grocery store.

As noted, this is also an excellent time to do a different kind of trip, and knock off the bucket list State/National Park and other scenic wonders. We truly have a concentration of them within a very reasonable drive of Las Vegas. A collection not only unique to the topography and scenery most of you are used to, but “one stop shopping” that you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. More on that next issue!

R.I.P Uncle Sheldon – We lost Sheldon Adelson to cancer. He had unfortunately been in declining health, putting Venetian/Palazzo up for sale a few weeks ago, and stepping down from control of his company for medical leave very recently.

While I still lament the loss of many Las Vegas Strip hotels, his replacement of The Sands with Venetian was a dramatic step up for Las Vegas.

The Sands was a small property, and had been relegated to $1 blackjack and 2 for a Dollar Budweisers during slow times. Which was great for me back then as a low roller, but not so good for a property attached to a giant convention center. Adelson was part of a group which started the massive and long-running computer trade show COMDEX (Computer Dealers’ Exhibition) which had quite the run until shows like the Consumer Electronics Show and the marriage of tech and daily living overshadowed it.

I was arguably the last civilian to ever set foot in the famed Copa Room. Best known for hosting the infamous Rat Pack, the list of entertainers it hosted is a “who’s who” of the most prominent performers in the second half of the 1900’s. I was the only one in there, perhaps 20 minutes before the property closed. What did they care? They were getting ready to blow up the joint (literally)!

I don’t claim that I felt any ghosts. However, the room had its own aura. You could almost feel the stories it held. To walk down and touch the stage which so many legends had set foot on was an experience which will stay with me forever. And, unlike modern day hotel closings, they didn’t kick the few remaining patrons out at closing! Two bars were open (cash… not free), and as employees clocked off work, they got drinks and reminisced for the last time. Quite the experience!

Here’s an overview of Sheldon Adelson’s Las Vegas run:

So Long Siegfried – What can be said about Siegfried Fischbacher, which hasn’t been. He and Roy, his onstage and life partner, absolutely ruled the Las Vegas show scene from the opening of The Mirage until the tragic tiger incident which left Roy unable to continue performing. Enjoy some highlights of their spectacular show, followed by an interview with them and their tigers, Circa 1995:

Social Media Statement – It is hard to ignore the social media upheaval of the past week. And, normally, I wouldn’t make any kind of statements. However, we live in a world where the smallest decisions, even when not politically motivated, are scrutinized.

For those not up to speed, “Big Tech” and Trump supporters have been involved in quite the game of chess. A product of a long-standing feud. (Go look at news regarding Section 230 from the past few months if you wish to explore that more). This has created an unprecedented shift regarding what various social media platforms people are using. It took years for Facebook to usurp Myspace as the prominent social platform. This latest abrupt shift has taken just days.

In short, Trump supporters bolted en masse to a toward platforms like Gab (similar to Twitter), MeWe.com (similar to Facebook),  Rumble (similar to YouTube) and Parler until they lost their web hosting. (They claim to be back soon). All platforms who have suggested that they have strong commitments to free speech regardless of someone’s political party or political ideology.

Where does that leave us?

– We have no intention of changing our current social use or postings. We have a Twitter account and Facebook account that are open to the public. With rare exception, we simply post the news links that we post here in the newsletter. Giving people a small taste of what we do.

For our Facebook AccessVegas.com Las Vegas Insider Vibe Membership Group, we go the extra mile. This is an added Membership benefit for those who enjoy Facebook. We post thoughts, answer questions, and interact with our Supporting (Paid) Members. Those not using Facebook are always welcome to use the Your Guy In Vegas question form in our Members Area, and we’re there to help. That is a Member Benefit.

Explore ALL of our extended Members Benefits. The level of help and benefit our members see is so vast and deep, that we regularly have members email and ask when their subscription is up. Because they want to cancel? NO! Because they note that they absolutely don’t want to miss an issue!!!

I’m always exploring and staying on top of the social media landscape. During this past year, I have been going through old hard drives and such, and organizing tens of thousands of Las Vegas photos — mostly taken by myself — from the past two-plus decades. (I won’t win any awards, but I’ve been a student of photography and do a pretty good job, if I say so myself).

This has me looking at the best way to get some of the better ones out there, thus also helping raise awareness of what we do. Hence, Pinterest and Instagram are under consideration.

I was already aware of Parler, MeWe, and Rumble, and had already been looking at whether those are platforms we’ll be expanding to. Much goes into play. Do they have active users? (It seems like they are certainly starting to). How easy is it to post to, and more importantly, can we plan our posts? A little secret that many are not aware of, is that many companies (including ours) who post regularly to social, schedule the posts.

I sit down for a few hours 3-4 times a week and comb the internet for Las Vegas news. If we posted a large number of links in a short time, it would swamp our feeds, and reduce the amount of people seeing each story in their feeds. So, we use the services of a company which lets us schedule them in advance. A company that currently does not support these new platforms. Note: companies which sell access to this kind of software have made it clear they are exploring servicing the upstart social companies.

Bottom Line: What we decide to do on social media, and which platforms we do (or don’t) participate on are not remotely political decisions. We’ll go where it makes sense, where there is an audience, and where we can interact in a manner which is consistent with the work flow needs of my small but loyal staff. For example, local Las Vegas Channel 13 is by no means right-leaning, but they have been on Rumble for a while now. In addition to maintaining their YouTube account.

I’m going to wait for the dust to settle. However, this really hits home why I’ve chosen to keep our email list at the heart of how we reach people. As opposed to building a large following via an app or on Facebook, only to see it be taken away if I say “booger“. I’ve been an outspoken critic of our governors poor handling and poor communication regarding restrictions and shut-down. And, I have a pile of evidence (stats and graphs) to back it up.

Which would not stop a social company from banning what I do if they felt that they, as judge and jury, decided that what I was saying was “dangerous” and somehow interpreted as helping to spread COVID! Donald Trump can take care of himself. If he is banned into oblivion, he simply goes back to a billionaire’s lifestyle. Me? I’m not quite in those shoes (to say the least), and I don’t want my passion for helping people be the most informed about Las Vegas as possible, taken away from me.

Hope You Are Enjoying This Issue!

Red Rock Canyon Day: Scenic Serenity West of Sin City

The Las Vegas area is known for its human-built environment — the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas Strip and other building behemoths like the World Market Center closer to its revitalized downtown area. Many visitors don’t think about visiting natural scenery during a trip to Las Vegas. The mountains east of Las Vegas look like giant dirt clods. They’re not very aesthetically pleasing. To the west, however, is a different story. Mount Charleston rises on the northwest horizon and southeast of it is a gem that many think is National Park-worthy: Red Rock Canyon.

Hello Access Vegas Free Subscribers!

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – The current restrictions dictating occupancy at no more than 25% (of just about anything), no gatherings of more than 50 people, and the dictate that you make reservations before you eat at a restaurant, will continue through January 15, 2020.

Hint: If you’ve read through our 12 Exclusive Special Reports in the members area, you’ll remember that one of them (how to bust the restaurant lines) talks about what you need to know to get the edge on others and get that reservation you want. Without spending an extra dime.

Restaurants are reporting that most reservations are being made within an hour of arrival. However, if your heart is set on a certain place, earlier is better.

Having said that, Las Vegas is so slow that the restriction otherwise isn’t changing much. Oh, except shows. Don’t expect to see any shows.

Might Be A Great Time To… – I suggested this back when this entire mess started, and it still has merit. Especially since it is winter here and while usually mild and sunny, outdoor activities won’t make you melt.

This is a great time to rent that car for a day and go see all the stuff you’ve only heard about. Red Rock Canyon (make a reservation), Valley Of Fire State Park, Hoover Dam, and similar.

For those of you who don’t want to spend more than a few hours away from your drinking and gambling, we always suggest taking a Maverick Helicopter Tour to see the Grand Canyon. Here’s the deal:

– Many Maverick tours will have you door-to-door, from the time you leave your hotel until the time you return, with complimentary transportation, in under 5 hours. This includes seeing Hoover Dam, landing in the bottom of the Grand Canyon (selected tours), West Rim Skywalk (selected tours), and a complete arial tour of Fremont Street downtown and The Strip upon your return.

Pro Tip: Book the tour that guarantees you arrive back in Las Vegas at Sunset.

– You do NOT have to go back to McCarran nor go through TSA! Many tours depart out of Maverick’s upscale, comfortable private terminal just a couple blocks south of the Las Vegas sign. Right on The Strip; Others depart from their private terminal at Henderson Executive Airport, just down by The M.

– Maverick is the only air tour company that I’d fly or put my family on. Their safety and maintenance protocols are over-the-top (and well beyond requirements). Their flight record of over more than two decades is the proof in the pudding.

You now have very few days left to use the Cyber Monday Coupon Code CYBER2021 and get our lowest price in a year. And, a price we won’t be offering probably ever. If the code works, you are still in luck. Head over and give it a try

Las Vegas McCarran Airport Tour Nov 2020 – What It’s Like Flying in Vegas Right Now!

(Producers Notes) #Vegas #McCarran International #Airport is one of the busiest airports in the country during normal times. It serves its purpose bringing people to/from the largest tourist destination in the United States and in my opinion is one of the easiest and nicest domestic airports.

McCarran is also my home airport and one I spend A LOT of time in. During normal times I am in an airplane very very often and thus I have grown to love my home airport including its lounges, quirks and ease of getting in and out of. In this Las Vegas airport tour you’ll not only see what it is like right now plus what it is like to fly, but I’ll also show you around to some of the cooler areas including the brand new Resorts World model, smoking areas and the international flex gates which recently opened. There was a ton going on at McCarran International Airport for my Sunday morning flight so I think you’ll enjoy it.

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – We’re maybe halfway though the “pause” which has increased restrictions and reduced occupancy allowances. Honestly, it is affecting locals the most. COVID-19 uncertainly sent the National Finals Rodeo to Dallas this year. For the uninitiated, that is the huge rodeo event which fills up Las Vegas during the slowest couple of weeks prior to Christmas.

No rodeo = very light visitation. Which means the current restrictions are having minimal impact. Except for shows. However, traditionally, shows went dark or on significantly reduced schedules during that time.

Just a reminder that our Cyber Monday Coupon Code CYBER2021 is still valid for a full year of our Members version of what we do here.

People who make the upgrade from Free Subscribers to Supporting (Paid) Members are surprised at how much of the “real deal, need to know for when I next visit” info they are missing out on.

ALSO:

1. Our 60-Day Money-Back Guarantee gives you no risk. (Our secure checkout with the protection of your credit card also gives you no risk). If you feel that the Members-Only resources, exclusive special reports, and “Your Guy In Vegas” ability to ask our experts specific question, and much more… isn’t worth it after a 60-day look-see, we’ll promptly refund your money.

2. If you don’t end up visiting in 2021, for any reason, we’ll give you 2022 for free. Period.

Here’s the secure check-out link. Don’t forget Coupon Code CYBER2021 to get in on our 2017 price of $23.95. This code will expire. (If it works, you are in. If it isn’t, you waited too long).

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – Well, lots of news, tidbits, the Governor recently spoke, will Las Vegas stay open? Plus, the free Downtown Loop is back. Everything you need to know, and why you should be interested.

Do the hotel closures you may have heard about mean Las Vegas is back on its way out of business? And, we get into why Laughlin might not be a bad alternative to Vegas this winter.

What The Future Holds – Our Governor’s most recent press conference was one spent chiding the public, literally in a tone of voice you’d use with a five year old who is not doing what you want. He noted a voluntary 2 week lock down. Working from home, only ordering take-out food, only venturing out when necessary. This full column is available right now in our Members Area.

If you are reading this, you are NOT a Member. You are only a free subscriber.

Our entire rundown of what you need to know about Las Vegas staying open, any restrictions, and similar are for Members only this week.

As is our rundown of everything you need to know about the new and improved Downtown Loop. Not just that it is running again. Everybody can look that up. But, we have the tips, hints, stop location advice, and much more that you won’t find elsewhere.

Plus, the typical “must know” exclusive info you’ll need to know whether your trip is in two weeks, two months, or as soon as the COVID-19 treatments kick in and we can all go back to normal. (Which looks to be much sooner than anticipated).

For less than the price of a higher-end cup of coffee each month, you can join the elite visitors who are far in the know. Who don’t end up wasting time and money because they got bad “sources from out-of-town” Vegas info. Plus, the Membership benefit that allows you to ask us specific questions regarding aspects of your next trip. So, you can do Vegas BETTER than ANYONE ELSE!

Don’t Delay. Sign Up Now! You don’t want to keep missing out…
