Access Vegas Insider Vibe August 31, 2018

Hi From Amy In Vegas! – I’m newsletter Assistant Editor Amy Rayner-Cooley. I’m taking over for Ted in the free version of our newsletter. As he noted, he’s moving 100% over to be there for our paid members with his columns, tips, answers to question, and similar.

Last week, he was interviewed by a local reporter regarding whether the high price of eating in Las Vegas (particularly on The Strip) is something visitors are voicing concern about. Members already have access to our exclusive dining deals spreadsheet (filled with thousands of dollars in potential savings, up and down The Strip and Fremont, no coupons needed).

Ted went on to tell members about some of his favorite near-Strip spots and how it can be cheaper to Uber it there and back than dine on The Strip. He also had tips on how to find great near-Strip dining spots that would be up your alley. Also, members have our Your Man In Vegas feature. So, if they are looking for a specific kind of near-Strip restaurant (BBQ, for example), we can personally give them our best advice.

Ted has agreed to extend the 30% savings on membership using the promo code INSIDER18 (all one word) one more week. Then, back to the normal price. So your next visit is months away? Even better. Gives you plenty of time to enjoy both the archives plus all of the new tips in each member’s issue.

This Issue’s Comped Insider Tip – Every issue, we’re going to comp you one tip from the couple-of-hundred neatly organized for our members.

Free Admission To The Stratosphere Tower – Don’t waste your money on tower admission, use it to enjoy a drink with the view! Admission to the tower is free if you are headed up to the 107 Skylounge. Which happens to have happy hour from 4-7 PM. Which happens to be the time period during which sunset occurs October – March. Which is AWESOME to view from up there, both in term of the sun dropping over the western mountains and The Strip lighting up. (Obviously, sunset drifts in the exact time, so pay attention on your first night or two here to time it right).

What’s New This Week
– Tickets are on sale now for Aerosmith’s residency on The Strip!
– Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art Hosts New Exhibit
– Take a break from the heat at a Tiki Bar
– Upgrade your Las Vegas Experience with deals on Suites

Hope you are enjoying this issue!

Access Vegas Insider Vibe August 21, 2018

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – In light of our recent “legacy pricing” offer (30% off) on our Premium Insider Advantage Membership program, we got a number of questions which I’d like to clear up.

Is The Free Issue Going Away? – In it’s current form, yes. There is a reason why nobody else puts out something like this for free. The time, effort, and yes, COST are significant. We used to have some great major show sponsors which helped pay the freight. Unfortunately, show attendance is down, advertising budgets for shows are down, and some of the major long-running shows like Jersey Boys and the like closed. (The shows you do see advertised are not major sponsors paying the big bucks we need to do this for free).

So, what we’ve done is start to shift our focus to those who are willing to support our effort with a very modest $2 per month. That’s not asking much.

We’ve DRAMATICALLY increased the amount of information, special reports, columns, members mania (readers questions answered) and more for our members. Conversely, we’ve been dialing back the amount of information in the free version. What you see in my column and Members Mania here in the free version has been a small sample of the inside information and tips which members enjoy.

If I may toot my own horn, I’m considered one of the top Las Vegas experts on the planet. Op-eds and letters to the editor of mine get published. I’m regularly interviewed by media on all things Las Vegas. This isn’t a hobby. This is a full-time endeavor and both my staff and myself do this for a living. We work very hard at it.

So, we’ve decided to concentrate our efforts on those who appreciate what we do. When I say that one of the membership amenities is our Your Guy In Vegas program where I or my staff will personally answer your Las Vegas questions (so you don’t get stuck with a one-size-fits-all answer from the internet somewhere), we mean it. Members hear back from us.

Put yourself in our shoes: If someone doesn’t even think that all of our hard work is worth buying us a “cup of coffee” once a month ($2 monthly [paid yearly], or $3 a month for those without a discount code), that is pretty telling. You’ll toss a bigger tip than that as the person who brings you your food or cuts your hair. You’ll stuff a buck in a tip jar somewhere without thinking twice, but won’t stuff a couple of bucks per month in our “tip jar” for seriously helping insure that your next trip to Las Vegas is better than 99% of the rest of the unwashed (and uninformed) masses.

Perhaps some of you simply are not aware of the massive amounts of information in our membership area. If you guess that the paid version of what we do isn’t much different than the free offerings, you are sadly mistaken.

And, you don’t have to take my word for it. Keep in mind that we have a full 60 day money-back guarentee. Check out the membership area. Enjoy a few of the members issues to see how they are essential in helping you plan for your next Vegas visit. Even if it isn’t yet planned.

PS We’ve had a grand total of three people ask for their money back. In three years. We must be doing something right!

This is also your last chance to get in on our current 30% savings offer. The price is going to full retail of $34.80 (and, it is worth every penny at full price). Click over and spend a few minutes scrolling ALL of the member benefits. Click the JOIN button. Make sure to apply the Coupon Code INSIDER18 for your savings.

—> View Access Vegas Premium Insider Vibe Member Benefits Now!

Looking forward to seeing you on the “inside”. If not, it has been a pleasure serving you and I’m looking forward to the next phase of serving those who can help kick in a very modest sum to help support what my staff and I do.

Hope you are enjoying this issue!

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!

The Cheapest (And Free) ATM Cash On The Strip – ATM’s on The Strip are getting out of hand. We’re hearing reports of up to $8 to withdraw cash at various casinos.

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:

Access Vegas Insider Vibe June 19, 2018

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!

It’s Shark Week Every Week At This Las Vegas Casino Resort

When you think of sharks and Las Vegas, you probably think of card games and people – not the animal. But with the arrival of Palms Casino Resort’s new bar, that association might change. As part of its $620-million renovation, the hotel recently unveiled a massive art collection with works loaned by owners Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta. In addition to new pieces from contemporary artists, visitors can see works from heavyweights like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Worhol and Takashi Murakami.

Your Guide To 16 Of Southern Nevada’s Most Intriguing Museums

It’s easy to take museums for granted. Or, worse, to think of them just as warehouses for stuff from the past. But the best museums do more than display objects. They use exhibits, artifacts and interactive displays to tell a story, whether that story is about mobsters, prehistoric monsters or, even, spooky spirits.
