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:

This hot-off-the-press, timely tips regarding the new Park MGM hotel are 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!

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.

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.

Helpful Tips, Advice For Next Sports Betting Trip To Las Vegas

The Best Spot For Local Beers On The Las Vegas Strip

Walking into any casino on the Las Vegas Strip, you’re almost immediately greeted by a bar.

The nondescript bar by the entrance has an equally unassuming beer list featuring a “craft and microbrew” section that isn’t very micro at all – Sam Adams Seasonal, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Sierra Nevada.

Access Vegas Insider Vibe April 4, 2018

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – What I call Summer Part I (what most of you call springtime) is upon us. The next two weeks call for highs in the high 70’s and 80’s, although (as it typical of April), you can expect some wind here and there. Although, remember my recent members column on which months were the most (and least) volatile regarding weather noted that April is often very unpredictable, and often windy. Rain is not completely uncommon (although it seems like we had our share of rain last month).

Beware Of This Sneaky Table Game Modification! – A new trend in an old table game is starting to creep its way into Las Vegas Strip casinos. If you don’t know what to look for, you won’t know that you are playing this “new” version. Yet, the new version takes nearly 3% more of your money (on average, per bet, the house wins more money, more often), then the old version.

My members-only column this week is a report on this new variation of a popular table game, how you may not ordinarily notice the difference, and specifically what to look for so you don’t get burned by these bad new odds against you. These tables currently have no shortage of players, because your average player has no clue they are playing at a high-hold (for the house), bad odds (for the player) table.

PS We are not talking about 6-5 blackjack. That is old news, and should be avoided as well. This is a new twist on a popular table game that will drain your wallet quickly, and simply leave you thinking you had a run of bad luck.

Members Mania

Hi Ted, It’s been a long time since I’ve written you and a few years since my last Vegas trip, but now I’m thinking about coming back again. And I have a couple of questions:

1. I usually stayed at the Mirage because of the great pool and the close proximity to Casino Royale. I like craps but hate to see minimums higher than five bucks. I enjoy playing the game and understand gambling well enough that I expect to eventually lose a bit or maybe break even. If I come out ahead of course, that’s ideal and a fine surprise. Are there any other casinos that have reasonable craps minimums maybe downtown? I probably will stay at the Mirage again, but with Uber, I can expect to get out and about, more than I used to do when I rented a car or taxi.

2. Resort fees, yuck! Are there any other hotels that can come near the beauty and fun of the Mirage pools, waterfalls, etc., that DON’T charge ridiculously high resort fees? I haven’t tried any off-strip hotels, but might, if they can come near to the atmosphere of the Mirage pools.

Thanks for your continuing Vegas news, I’ve read for many years.

Ted Responds:

Very happy to hear you are considering a visit, and happy that we have been able to help you out and keep you in the loop with our membership newsletter!

– I still love The Mirage (and Bellagio). Love the Mirage atmosphere and location. The only bummer is that although built by Steve Wynn, it is owned by the nickel-and-diming, fee imposing MGM Resorts corporation. But, you’ve discovered the joys of Casino Royale across the street. Where the limits are still low and the drinks are still cheap!

Generally speaking, you’ll find the limits you want there. However, with the advent of Uber, you are correct: There is no excuse NOT to go downtown. You’ll find plenty of $5 craps and blackjack tables. If it is a super-busy weekend night, you won’t find them everywhere. But, you’ll find them pretty much somewhere.

El Cortez is a super-fun place to shoot dice, and because of their location and “regular guy” clientele, they have to keep the limits down. Main Street Station is highly suggested as well. And, don’t overlook the completely renovated Cal, where you can gamble with always-fun Hawaiians.

We have answers to your Vegas questions!

But, you have to ask the questions.
