Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – A no longer super-scorching Las Vegas, I might add. Much of June and the first two weeks of July were out-of-control with the heat. If you braved it, congratulations. If you are visiting during the next two weeks, you’ll enjoy much more seasonal weather, which means highs “only” in the mid-100’s F.

Everything You Need To Know About Legalized Marijuana Here In Las Vegas – OK, we’ve been getting feedback and questions about this, so I’m devoting most of this post to it. For the record, I’m not a pot user. I grew up in Oregon where it was almost mandatory. However, I tried it a couple of times and it made me paranoid. I like the effects of liquor much better.

Having said that, I’m not against it on a wholesale level. I’ve heard there is a strain that will help you sleep like a baby, and I’m thinking this may be a better solution than the Ambien I take from time-to-time. Just as a side note, I will say that I’m a big fan of over-the-counter Kavinace. It won’t help you fall asleep, but it will give you the most amazingly calm sleep and I have more energy when I wake after using it.

Fist of all, we need to dispel the misnomer that casinos are going to be filled with pot smoke. Marijuana is still illegal in the federal level, and there is no way the casinos want to cross the federal government in any way, shape or form. Nor do they non-using customers to get a contact high. Many people still have jobs where they need to be drug tested, where the employer considers pot as a prohibited drug (either because of the personal views of the company, or to comply with federal regulations).

While I’m sure someone who doesn’t know better may light up on casino property, you can get security will be quick to remedy the situation.

So, will there be massive amounts of smoking on The Strip and Fremont Street? The Fremont Street Experience is (essentially) privately controlled by a number of downtown casinos, and smoking pot won’t be allowed. Statewide, smoking in public is banned statewide, which obviously includes the Las Vegas Strip. How prevalent it may become, and how much Metro (our city/county police force) will crack down on it? I doubt they will be tossing anyone in jail, but they may detail you, run your license for warrants, note your name, and tell you not to do it again.

As I noted, this “smoking on private property only” is statewide, and part of the law. So, for example, if you rent a house or an Air B’n’B rental which allows smoking, you can smoke on that property, extending to the front and back yards. But, the second you hit the sidewalk, you are in violation of the law.

Pot smoking in your hotel room has never been allowed. Of course, that has never stopped anyone. The bigger issue you face is the demise of smoking rooms. Yes, here in Las Vegas, companies like MGM Resorts are very quietly vastly reducing the number of smoking rooms they provide, period.

What about edible marijuana? This is subject to all of the above. However, since it is easily concealed and you aren’t smoking it, let’s just suggest that the odds of getting in trouble or getting caught are obviously pretty small.

Who can buy it? Anyone over 21 with legal ID. Just like liquor. Have valid ID or Passport.

Where can I buy it? Only at licensed stores selling it. There are a couple actually ON The Strip, and a few more within a few minutes of various parts of The Strip. Since we’re no way endorsing any of them (we haven’t been to them), my suggestion to finding one is the following:

1. Ask your hotel concierge where the nearest outlet is. Knowing this stuff is their job. If they are helpful, slip them a couple of bucks. That’s how a concierge generally works.

2. If they aren’t sure, of the nearest one isn’t within walking distance, ask your taxi or Uber driver to take you to the nearest one. The Uber driver will be more-than-happy to help. Ride-sharing company drivers get a hefty tip from the outlet for bringing you as a customer. First-time Uber riders: Download the app and use the first-timers code UberAV and your first ride is on Uber, up to $20.

Oh, one more thing: Banks (credit card companies) won’t TOUCH the marijuana trade. It is CASH ONLY! Also, I’m hearing that the average purchase is something in the $60 range (don’t quote me on that), so I wouldn’t show up with an empty wallet. While I don’t have prices in front of me, I understand we’re just a little higher than Colorado because our taxes on it are just a little higher.

Savings On Mat Franco – You may remember him as the first and only magician to win American’s Got Talent, and he’s putting a lot of smiles on the faces of his amazed audience members. We cut a deal to give AccessVegas.com members and visitors $25 off this incredible show. If you are planning a trip, use this savings and lock up good seats now. There will be a savings graphic in this newsletter, or you can go directly to AccessVegas.com

Abandoned Warm Springs Pool, Bar And Cafe In The Middle Of Nowhere North Of Las Vegas

One of my all-rime favorite hot springs in the entire Western US!!! While driving around central Nevada, I stumbled upon this amazing abandoned warm springs swimming pool! A local told me that it was OK to soak there, as long as I cleaned up after myself and treated the place with respect. My understanding is that it used to be a popular swim spot until about 20 years ago, when the family who operated it died/lost interest/couldn’t afford to keep it up…but they still allow people to soak there unofficially, as long as you clean up after yourself and treat the place with respect. How cool is THAT?

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – We got out of the frying pan and into the fire until this week. We had something like 26 days where the high temps never were less than our seasonal average of 105F, and it was more common to have it over 110F. Fortunately, this weekend begins a good stretch of days that will be blow normal. Works for me. My June electric bill this year was 14% higher than my July bill of 2016

No New Frontier For Now – The empty spot across from Encore, formerly the home of The Frontier, will continue to sit vacant. At least for ow. Plans for Alon, an upscale, uppity, boutique property on the location have been scrapped, and the land is for sale. However, there is serious talk about it being developed as (hold your breath now)… shopping!  Just what Las Vegas is lacking these days

Free Parking On The Strip – Yes, there are still islands of free parking on The Strip. If you drive in or rent a car, these will come in handy. Even if you don’t drive while in town, we’ve included some reasons why you still may (or may not) want to visit the properties in question:

1 Circus Circus – Self-park only, valet will cost you. Of course, the only reason really to go to Circus is for the legendary steakhouse (well worth it, put it on your Las Vegas bucket list), or the amusement park. You’ll generally have to wade through tons of families from Southern California (except in the steakhouse).

2. SLS – Both valet and self continue to be free. We do not expect the new owner to change that. SLS continues to have some destination dining options, although those will most likely go bye-bye with new ownership as they were connected to the previous owner’s company.. You can take advantage of their free parking, buy and all day monorail pass that you use to get up and down The Strip, and still come out way ahead over paid parking.

3. Stratosphere – Obviously also a destination, but we love the Level 107 Lounge happy hour from 4-7 PM daily. Tell them you are going to Level 107 (two drink min) and your ride to the top of as free as the parking! Pro tip: Skip the garage. They own the lot across the street, which is usually empty. Park in the lot, walk across the street, and right in the front doors of the casino.

Cheapskate Tip: The Aztec Inn diner and casino, directly south of Stratosphere, has some really good food prices. And, your video poker play at the bar will usually get you attentive bartenders and generous pours if you are tipping reasonably. (We suggest $2 on your first drink, $1 for each thereafter). Warning: While not a scary place, it is more of a “dive”. No one is going to mistake this for Bellagio.

4. Treasure Island – Although they originally indicated they would start charging if other properties did, they have done a reverse course and are touting their free parking.

5. Trump – Whether you voted for him or you loathe him, you can park for free at his joint.

6. Venetian and Palazzo – Seems like the team of Republicans (owners of Trump, Venetian, and TI are all GOP) seem to like offering free parking.

7. Casino Royale – This has been a “best kept secret” we’ve touted over the years. The modest four story parking garage behind the casino is rarely ever close to full, and has an incredible location. A couple of things to keep in mind: A. The first of the split floors of the garage are for hotel guests only.

IE, if you are staying there. Drive up a couple of levels. B. You still are required to be a “customer” to park in the garage. They don’t have a guard standing there or following people around. However, go in and toss $5 in a machine and/or buy a drink at the bar. Better yet, stay and play a while, and get some cheap eats. Nothing fancy about the place, but it is a lot of fun!

8. We’re not yet sure when this loophole will be closed, or how it got overlooked, but the Crystals shops at CityCenter still offer free parking.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Everything in Las Vegas is always subject to change. And if it does, your car has a feature on it called “reverse”!

Downtown Loop Free Shuttle Stops And Hours – The free downtown loop will get you from one end of Fremont Street to the other, to the Mob Museum, Pawn Stars, the Art’s District, North Outlet Mall and The Transit Center 7 days a week. Great way to see more of downtown without wearing out your shoes or your wallet. Info: Downtown Loop Free Shuttle

Free Live Las Vegas Lounge Music – One of the top questions we get is where to find actual Las Vegas lounge music. Fortunately, Caesars Palace has expressed their commitment to keeping this Las Vegas tradition alive starting at 10 PM nightly (unless there is a rare ticketed concert still using the space). David Perrico’s Pop Strings Orchestra plays Thur-Mon and our fave Zowie Bowie plays Tue-Wed. Here’s a sample of each:

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – We got out of the frying pan and into the fire. After 10 straight days in June of temps ranging from 110-117F (tying a record), we had a few days under 110F until we jumped back up to 112-113F. This is definitly the earliest and hottest stretch I can remember in 24 years of living here. Fortunately, next week things drop to a very seasonal 104F. 

Honestly, once you get above 110F, it is simply hot. Your AC generally doesn’t shut off, and if you have not used a windshield shade in your car, driving is going to be less-than-fun (steering wheel too hot to touch, seats and car interior uncomfortably hot). The real difference is the overnights. If days are in the low 100’s, things get reasonably pleasant by midnight. On the hotter days, it is not unusual for the thermometer to still be pushing 100F at the bewitching hour!

New Visitor Record – 3.78 million people visited Las Vegas in March of 2017. That amounts to nearly 120,000 people arriving every single day! The verdict is still out on whether this pace can be maintained. The paid parking, cuts in drink pours, raises in drink prices, $40 resort fees and similar at the higher-end resorts are being experienced for the first time by many of these visitors. And unlike you, they don’t have me telling you the work-around, providing you with our exclusive dining deals spreadsheet, telling you the better places to gamble, and similar.

No New Frontier For Now – The empty spot across from Encore, formerly the home of The Frontier, will continue to sit vacant. Plans for Alon, an upscale, uppity, boutique property on the location have been scrapped, and the land is for sale. However…

Resorts World Is Finally Underway – Cranes are moving onto the former Stardust property. Finally. The Asian-themed megaresort simply called Resorts World (they same company has casinos in other countries) is on it’s way, with a projected three-year construction time.

The hold-up? In my opinion, they were waiting for the final approval of the $1.4 billion convention center expansion. Which should be completed at about the same time. The importance? The convention center expansion is pretty much directly across the street from the Resorts World project. 2020 is also when the new events stadium is scheduled to open. Looks to be a big year for Las Vegas! And, more rooms and more independent hotels mean more competition.

No Name Change For Las Vegas Airport – The push to rename the Las Vegas airport from McCarran to Harry Reid has died. Senator Pat McCarran was an aviation pioneer (the road around Reno’s airport is named after him also), but has been said to have a racist past.

Can’t Make This Stuff Up – Nevada now has legalized recreational marijuana as of July 1, 2017. In the next week or two, we’ll be answering a reader question about what it means to you, and your casino experience. (Short answer: It won’t impact it. Casinos are going to continue to ban pot use). However, if you have cash and a car or Uber, a couple of shops are very near The Strip. One is just behind the Fashion Show Mall (arguably an easy walk depending on weather as you can walk through the mall). The other one is — and we’re not making this up — at 420 E. Sahara Ave, just behind the SLS. A quick monorail ride will get you there.

El Cortez Doubles Down On Happy Hour – The Parlor (bar) at El Cortez downtown — a great spot — is offering $5 appetizers, 2-1 cocktails, and half-price draft beer from both 4 to 6 PM and 11 PM to 1 AM. Can’t go wrong with this one!

Hope you are enjoying this issue!
