Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – The “Don’t Visit Las Vegas” dam is finally starting to break. The State of New York could no longer ignore the kinds of data, graphs, and information I’ve been noting here for weeks now.

I’m not posting any new graphs this week. Why? Because they look identical to the graphs from previous weeks! Oh, except to say we have not seen new cases/hospitalizations/deaths this low since (drum roll please)…

Around the end of MARCH. And in some cases lower. You remember March, don’t you? Way back when there was only starting to be talk of drastic measures, flattening the curve, etc.

Bars To Reopen – We have it on good authority that our Governor will be opening the bartops soon. The ones where you can drink booze, and play video poker. Currently, countertops where you dine at are allowed. But if that countertop is for liquor service and gambling, it must be sure to be something that spreads COVID-19, and no dice.

No, it doesn’t make any sense to us either. Nor to the entire bar and gaming industry. Interestingly enough, Governor Sisolak was caught on video dining at an Italian restaurant that had live music playing. However, live show and music events are not currently allowed. So, Governor Sisolak’s damage control consisted of noting that ambient background music is OK, but concerts and such are NOT.

Remember, the Fremont Street Experience still does not have their nightly three stages of live music. Because, it isn’t allowed. Important to note that as an outdoor venue, they attempted to restart this music a couple of months ago. With social distancing. Including markings noting how far apart people should stand. Governor Grumpy was like “Hell No”, and that was the end of that.

I suppose a band could book a banquet hall, do a “dinner show” as the “house band”, and all would be fine? Maybe not. Because no more than 50 people are allowed at a church gathering, Evangelicals For Trump booked a banquet hall. Circular table seating, not a concert or speech set-up. After all, hotel and banquet gatherings are allowed at 50% of capacity. Oops. The hotel owner got fined.

This isn’t about whether you love God or Trump. This is just a small sample of the ever-changing goal line, ever changing rules, and general poor communication. You know… the biggest industry in the State of Nevada. This is not whether the Governor has a D or an R behind his name. The gaming industry cares about the gaming business over political party. He should have an I behind his name. No, not for Independent. For Incompetent.

Members Benefits Housekeeping – With so many new to the classroom (thanks for your support), this is a good time to do some housekeeping regarding ALL of the Members Benefits. Also, to clear up the occasional misconception that we’re simply a Facebook Group or that being part of Facebook is required to get all benefits.

Members Benefits Include:

Access Vegas Insider Vibe MEMBERS EDITION – That is our twice-monthly newsletter you are reading now. Those on our email list, but who are not Supporting (Paid) Members receive a version that has most of the real scoop, accurate “need to know” stuff, key commentary, and Members Mania (answers to Members questions) redacted.

I can say without a doubt that non-members miss out on far more value than the “price of a cup of coffee” each month we ask you to support our work and our team with.

Members Only Special Reports – We have 12 Exclusive Special Reports in the Members area. This is information that you will NOT find in general internet searches. Not every report will apply to every Member. However, virtually all of our Members have found that a number of them are of great interest and help! Many noting that just the vital help gained in those reports is worth the yearly cost of membership alone.

“Your Guy In Vegas” Special Access – Spending hours searching Las Vegas information on the internet may (or may not) be fun. The problems are…

1. Is the advice you are finding accurate? Much/Most information on the internet comes from sources outside Las Vegas! Ya… good luck with that.

2. That doesn’t mean the info you are looking for is suitable for YOUR interests and tastes. Just because a group of March Madness guys really enjoyed a certain steakhouse and wrote favorably about it, does NOT mean it will be the right choice for you and that special person in your life to have a romantic meal.

Our Supporting (Paid) Members don’t waste their time on endless searches and questionable information. Our “Your Guy In Vegas” form in the membership area allows Members to submit specific questions to our knowledgeable staff. In the rare case we don’t know the answer, we usually know who does. 25 years in the business, right here in Las Vegas, gives you lots of contacts!

And, our answers are not canned, “off the cuff” remarks. We’ll often ask for more details or specifics to help our Members make the best decisions possible. If they are asking about a steakhouse, we’re not going to send the same people to CUT as we’d send to Golden Steer.

150+ Indexed Vegas Tips – If you run through these, and spend some downtime before your next visit, you are assured to find some great Vegas tips that you simply didn’t know about! Knowledge is power. You spend a LOT of money visiting. Saving time or doing things a slightly better way saves you hard-earned cash, and increases the joy and excitement of your visit.

(Optional) Members-Only Private Facebook Group – IF you are a Facebook kind of person, we have a group you can join. If you are NOT a Facebook person, have no worries. ALL that we talk about and post goes in our twice-monthly exclusive Members newsletter. No Facebook? No worries. You won’t miss a thing!

However, IF you enjoy Facebook, we post the info and news stories over there as well, so you can add your two cents, and interact with other Members. We read all comments and interact here and there as well. This is for Facebook users who want an added dose of Vegas. If getting our twice-monthly Members newsletter is enough for you, and the perfect frequency for you to keep up on Vegas, no need to join whatsoever.

This issue only:

We’re bringing back the Coupon Promo Code ACCESS2020, which will save you 20% on a full year’s membership. As always, backed up by our 60-Day, Money-Back Guarantee. You literally have nothing to lose, and a nice chunk of change to save. If you get on board now.

Travel restrictions are falling, COVID numbers in Las Vegas are beyond microscopic, the bars will be opening shortly (by the time you are likely to get here, that’s for sure), and you need to be on top of what to expect, and how things really are!

“Ted, I’ve heard enough. 60 days to look it over sounds good to me!”
I want to get back to Vegas! If that is you, please go straight to our

Access Vegas Insider Vibe Checkout Page

and enter the Coupon Code ACCESS2020 to lock in a full year at the price of a cup-of-coffee per month.

“Ted, sounds good, but I’d like to know a little more.”
Not a problem. Please head over to Members.AccessVegas.com and read ALL of the amazing details of what Membership gets you. Don’t forget Coupon Code ACCESS2020 as we’re sure you’ll like what you see.

Hope You Are Enjoying This Issue!

Members Mania

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkNote From Ted:

Members Mania is a regular feature for our Supporting (Paid) Members. Membership includes our “Your Guy In Vegas” feature, where you can reach out to myself and our paid staff of experts with your specific Vegas questions. We don’t have “canned” answers. We’ll ask you for some details pertaining you your wants and needs. Then, answer accordingly.

 

So.. Terry Fator is no longer a headliner at the Mirage? He had a good run.. GREAT show! Saw him 4 times over the past years.

From our Membership Facebook Page

 

Ted Responds:

He was getting booted pre-COVID. His ticket sales had dropped
below the level his contract required. So, he already had his 6 months
notice from the property. He’s not exactly walking away a pauper. His
original deal with The Mirage was 5 years at $20 million per year! He
celebrated 10 years as of April, 2019.

For our Supporting (Paid) Members, we go into if and when Fator will return, Fator’s future plans, and when they can look for him.

Whether it has been accurate information on exactly what is happening in Las Vegas, accurately letting our Members know what to expect as Las Vegas reopened, specific information they NEED to know for their next visit which we answer via our Your Guy In Vegas Membership benefit, or more…

Investing less than $3 per month (paid yearly) with our Access Vegas Insider Vibe Membership Program is the ultimate way to hedge the thousands you spend on your Las Vegas vacation. Especially as you are needing the best information now (more than ever) as you decide exactly when you can or should start to think about your return visit after the COVID upheaval.

The casinos don’t fund us. No cause or political party funds us. We are nearly 100% Member-Supported. Invest in a One-Year Membership TODAY!


We have answers to your Vegas questions!

But, you have to ask the questions.

Email us at [email protected], and let us know, what YOU want to know!

The Odds of Catching Covid on a Flight Are Slim – Planes have not been the sites of superspreading events, at least so far.

If you decide to fly, the odds that you will pick up Covid-19 are low, according to one expert analysis. Despite the known dangers of crowded, enclosed spaces, planes have not been the sites of so-called superspreading events, at least so far. That’s not to say flying is perfectly safe — safety is relative and subjective. But as restrictions continue to change, the only way to move forward through this long pandemic is to start thinking in terms of risk-benefit ratios. Very little is without risk, but perhaps some risks — such as flying — are small enough to warrant taking.

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – Covid-19 cases are dropping here, new resorts on on track, Governor Grumpy is still stomping his angry feet, important tips on visiting the Las Vegas sign, how to guarantee you get an Uber, and lots more this week. We’ll dive right in!

For our Supporting (Paid) Members, this week we discuss:

– When bars will reopen, and why they haven’t yet. Despite continued long-term drops in COVID-19 deaths and hospitalizations.

– Having trouble getting an Uber? (Here or anywhere). We’re not. We fill our Members in on the one easy tip to make sure they get a ride!

– More details have come out about Circa Las Vegas. October 28 can’t come soon enough.

– Info you should know to expand your dining choices downtown, while paying locals prices. We’re always helping our Members save!

– How we knew that reopening Las Vegas wouldn’t turn into a COVID-19 disaster. And, why the agenda-driven, fear-mongering national outlets are simply ignoring the unbiased health authority data.

– Tips for visiting the Las Vegas sign, that most visitors don’t know. These tips will save you time and money!

Access is instant, and your membership comes out to less than $3.00 per month (paid yearly). Our Members consider that a small price to pay to “hedge their bet” on getting unbiased information about what is really happening in Las Vegas during these unusual times.

We are NOT casino-supported. (We make a very small commission if you book through various offers we list). However, NOT ONE SINGLE casino cuts us a monthly check nor controls our message.

We are Members-Supported and our only obligation is getting our members the info they won’t find elsewhere, allowing them to make the choice of investing in a Las Vegas vacation (when to come, should they wait, what to expect) as the most informed visitors. Period.

This, on top of our numerous other Member Benefits. And remember, we offer a 60-day money-back guarentee. We can be that confident because year-after-year, far less than 1% of the people who become members, decide that it isn’t helpful to them.

Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! – If it seems like you just heard from me, you did. However, we have important news, which we’ll break down in the effort to continue to help you decide whether you want to visit Las Vegas in 2-3 weeks, 2-3 month, or 2-3 years.

Governor Grumpy Whistles A Different Tune – I’m not sure whether the governor’s staff are readers or not. However, somebody got through to him with exactly the concerns I stated last issue (members edition linked here).

During the Q&A with the press, he even admitted that closing down all the bars when only 20% were out of compliance might have not been the best idea. So… He HAS let bars open in a few smaller counties. (Bartops specifically, if a bar or restaurant serves food, you can waltz on in, get a table, and drink to your heart’s content). More importantly, we have reason to believe that he’ll be allowing bars in Reno and Las Vegas to open sooner than later. (I’d peg it at 7-10 days).

He’s ditching “phases” that apply to the whole state, or entire industries in favor of heavy enforcement, fines, and even closing specific non-compliant businesses. Including casinos.

What’s That Going To Mean To You? – In the Supporting (Paid) Members version of this issue, we get quite in-depth with the following:

– How strict is mask enforcement, where and/or when, what to expect, what you may (or may not) find acceptable, and a thought at when that restriction may be lifted.

– Where we suggest staying right now. Unlike normal times when Las Vegas is 100% open and everything is hopping, being in the know will help you experience Vegas more in the manner you are used to!

– Is Vegas really dead or depressing (as some of the social media and forum group doomsayers are trying to convince everyone)? We tell (and show) what is really going on so you can make an informed decision on whether to visit soon. Or not. Everyone has different expectations.

– Conventions are canceling through early 2021. No, not because they know something everyone else does not. Convention lead times are months and months and months, and they don’t know how allowed huge gathering will be and when. What does this mean for the casual visitor? Important factors to look for, so you can book in your favor, and save even more.

Just A Reminder: Before you gamble your hard-earned money on your next Vegas Visit, you can still “hedge your bet” and let us keep you in the loop with real info and real data. Not crazy internet rumors. We’re members-supported so the only people we care about are our Supporting (Paid) Members. Not the casinos!

We’re still leaving the Coupon Code 5NOW working, which gets the price down to a ridiculously low $2.48 per month (paid yearly), with our full 60-Day money-back guarantee.

Members.AccessVegas.com
Coupon Code At Checkout: 5NOW

So far this year, NOBODY has asked for their money back after subscribing. Instead, the compliments continue to roll in. We’ve been in business since 1997. We must be doing something right!

About three weeks ago, many of the Facebook and other groups were full of a “Vegas will be closing by the end of the week” rumor. People ate it up, repeated it, and many canceled their trips. So much so that MGM pushed back the openings of Mirage and Park MGM!

Except… there was no evidence nor reason to close Las Vegas. Nor did it. Enforcement on the few casinos (statewide) which were not in compliance were threatened with closure (individual closure, not state-wide) if they didn’t shape up. And, the info in the national media has been horribly inaccurate.

Is relying on spending hours trying to ferret out info before you decide about your next visit, all-the-while unsure about the accuracy? Our Members don’t have those worries. Couple of bucks a month saves them time, stress, and money:

Members.AccessVegas.com
Coupon Code At Checkout: 5NOW

How Are Our Members Benefiting? A couple of weeks ago, a Member asked us when Park MGM was reopening. We didn’t simply confirm the August 6 date to them (which we knew). We ALSO gave them the thought that they may want to book another MGM property which was already open. Just in case the Park MGM opening date got pushed back.

Guess what, it did! So, if the Member followed the advice they asked us for using our Your Guy In Vegas Membership benefit, they are booked somewhere instead of having to get re-booked with limited control. Is that kind of help worth a couple bucks a month? Many think so!

Bonus: We reminded them that Park MGM is reopening (when they do), Smoke Free. That might be important to a few people, one way or the other!

Eldorado Owns Caesars – The merger is done. While the company is taking on the Caesars name, the bottom line is that they are owned and ran by Eldorado Resorts. Out of Reno, Nevada. We feel this is a GOOD thing, and should have plenty more to say about that next issue.

Hope You Are Enjoying This Issue!
