Would you wander on to a battlefield, unarmed? Probably not. You’d want to have a strategy, too—unless, of course, you enjoy being blindsided by your adversaries. Okay, so lining up for a Las Vegas buffet isn’t exactly going to war, but showing up with no plan is a really bad idea.

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas – Things have returned to normal for visitors. Many are adding a trip to the Las Vegas sign to their itineraries simply to pay tribute to the victims. Just a reminder that we’re leaving the basics of the day-to-day news coverage to the news outlets. I’m not a law enforcement expert, and in an ongoing investigation, new facts change the big picture almost daily.

What we ARE doing is linking to specific human interest stories regarding the events, which you may have not seen in your local news coverage. We know that many of you almost feel like you are an honorary citizen of Las Vegas and will find them of interest.

A belated shout to the hotel companies which offered free lodging to the friends/families of victims who were forced to make an unexpected Las Vegas trip. Those included the South Point, Boyd Gaming (Orleans, Fremont, Cal, Main Street Station, Sam’s Town), and Station Casinos (Red Rock Resort, Green Valley Ranch, and every casino in town with the name “Station” in it, except for Main Street Station).

Also, University Medical Center and the three St. Rose (Dignity Health) are dedicated to make sure that victims do NOT feel any financial impact from their treatment. Other hospitals have said that they will be very sensitive to the issue. In addition, the State of Nevada has a victims program which helps pick up the tab for treatments if victims fill out witness statements and are cooperative.

Between the Las Vegas Victims Fund (click to give, every little bit helps) and other major direct donations and pledges, donations are into the 8 figures. Having said that, a couple of independent auditing sources have suggested that because of the number of victims, and seriousness of some wounds and the treatment and therapy needed (some people won’t ever walk again, and others may not for months, and that is just the tip of the iceberg), the amount collected so far won’t cover all of the needs. Every little bit helps!

Lotus Of Siam Moving – Many long-time visitors have known about this “best kept secret” for upwards of a couple of decades now. Tucked away in a nondescript, older shopping plaza just a few minutes east of The Strip on Sahara, Lotus of Siam was one of those “worth the taxi fare” places to enjoy. They closed down a couple of months ago when we had a day of serious rain which finally caved in their roof (and, left the very first leak in mine).

They are taking the opportunity to relocate to a much nicer location on East Flamingo, just past Paradise Road. However, it will be a couple of months before they open. In the meantime, we have another “locals best kept secret” for Thai: “Weera Thai Restaurant” is on West Sahara (just past Valley View and about 1/2 mile past Palace Station). Noted local food critic John Curtis calls them the second best Thai spot in town. Prices are locals friendly.

If you are still using those expensive cabs (which tend not to show up at off-Strip locations when you call), remember that we’re giving you your first Uber ride (up to $20) for free. I love Uber. My car broke down a while back, and Uber was always there to pick me up within minutes of asking for a ride. Their app is super-easy to use. Free ride code is UberAV

$500,000 – If you’ve ever wondered how much Celine Dion makes per performance for her residency at Caesars Palace: The first show back after the shooting, she declared that proceeds from that show would be donated. The tally? Over $500,000!

OJ Is Living In Las Vegas – OJ Simpson is out of jail and living in Northwest Las Vegas to serve out his parole. On a golf course. Presumably so that he can continue the hunt for his wife’s killer. (Old joke). He hasn’t been shy about getting out and about, so keep your eyes open. Word is that he’s super friendly to people who approach to say hello.

The Weather Is Stunning – As I’ve noted in the past, October is the absolute best time of year to be here. With rare exception, temperatures are in the 70’s and 80’s (F). A few weeks ago, I promised a special month-by-month report on what to generally expect for each month of the year, ranging from weather to who is visiting to activities. Obviously, we were waylaid by the tragedy of October 1. We’ll get that prepped for you soon.

Hope you are enjoying this issue!

Las Vegas Gambling

Las Vegas, or “Lost Wages” as it’s been dubbed by unlucky rollers, is a place indelibly associated with bright lights and green felt. Ever since Nevada legalized gambling in 1931, the city has been inviting people from all over the world to try their luck at some of the most iconic casinos in the world. The first of these all-in-one resort hotel complexes was The Mirage, opened in 1989 by entrepreneur Steve Wynn.

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas – We’re now 11 days removed from the Las Vegas shooting tragedy (as I write this). On one hand, Las Vegas is rebounding. The Strip (next to the venue) was finally opened. People continue to visit. Life is moving on. To a point.

If you look at the live streaming Las Vegas Earthcam video, you see the makeshift memorial at the Las Vegas Sign, and people paying their respects at almost all hours of the day and night. Many have asked about how long that will last, or when a permanent memorial will be established so that they can pay their respects. I expect for the Las Vegas Sign to be a makeshift memorial for quite some time.

Having said that, a “healing garden” was set up downtown at 1015 S. Casino Center Blvd. Unfortunately, that is a prohibitive (for many of you) 1 mile hike from Fremont Street. I’m sure when things calm down, a permanent memorial in a tourist-friendly location will be erected.

In the meantime, the outpouring of support from Las Vegas visitors has been tremendous. As I note from time-to-time, we monitor a ton of Las Vegas social media, message boards, and the like (so you don’t have to, otherwise, they become redundant with 5 people a day asking if they should stay at a certain hotel). People are NOT canceling pending trips. Some people are planning a special trip just to visit, show their support, and pay their respects. And, we hear that tattoos with the #VegasStrong and an outline of The Strip skyline are pretty popular.

No madman is going to break the love affair that tens of millions have with our city!

As I noted last week, we’re not attempting to be a news source on the latest in the investigation. We will continue to post links to some human interest articles which are worth a read. Past that, we know that many of you continue to suck up every piece of news you can, while others have felt that they had to start tuning it out due to emotional reasons. Even I’ve had to put the paper aside, tune away from the news and similar here and there. Just for my mental health.

If you feel that you need more information on the ongoing investigation than you are currently getting through you own local and national news, you can go to news.google.com and type in las vegas shooting or las vegas investigation (or similar) and read the latest.

We are aware of the reports of conflicting time lines, thoughts that the shooter didn’t act along, and the conspiracy theory that another gunman was shooting from the 4’th floor. I’m a Las Vegas expert, not a crime investigation expert. Hence, I’m taking a “wait-and-see” attitude. Even the sheriff said that the time line may keep changing as they find out more.

I saw a former FBI profiler interviewed last week note that law enforcement tells the public what they want them to know, not necessarily exactly what they know. Which makes plenty of sense: If you suspect someone had help, but you claim them as the lone participant, you can lull other suspects to sleep. Per the notion of a 4’th floor shooter, I have to question why the 32’nd floor shooter had to bash the windows out, but somehow the person on the 4’th floor was able to remove a window, do the shooting, and then put the window back.

At the end of the day, I’d rather let the Metro Police and the FBI do their jobs while I focus on healing. Both for me personally, for all that were affected, and for all of Southern Nevada.

My normal column will resume next week. Thanks for all of the thoughts and prayers and support!

Great Casino Slots – Volume 4

Our gaming Editor – “Vegas Vic” – Victor H Royer – has written another new book: “Great Casino Slots – Volume 4”. This is the latest edition of his popular series on Slots – which are the best, what they do, how they play, and how you can learn to play them best.

We asked Vic about the book, and here’s what he had to say:

“Get Ready for Big Wins! From China – Macao – to Las Vegas, Atlantic City, California, New York, and the American Midwest – and to Singapore, to Australia, to Europe, and just about everywhere – modern 21st Century Casinos are a place where great new games are being introduced almost on a daily basis.

There are so many new games now available, that it’s even harder to figure out which are the better ones, and why. And how to play them, because many of these new games can be quite complicated – at least at first.

In Volume 4 of this series: Great Casino Slots, the choices are easy. Just look, see, read, and learn.

Simple! – And all without it costing you any casino playing money while you find out!

Great Casino Slots – Volume 4 – is packed with the latest, newest, best and hottest casino games.

And now you have them all right here – at your fingertips – ready to make you a Winner!”

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas – Well, well, well… this was always the column that I hoped I’d never have to write. Just as the first responders, law enforcement, and local hospitals in our valley regularly drill for situations like Sunday night, never having to want to put what they learn into practice. This continues to be an unrelenting nightmare, which has given me actual nightmares.

First of all, I’m not going to recap the happenings. Unless you have been in a self-imposed media blackout this week, or stranded on a desert island, you know as much as you want to know. I’m sure some of you watched (and perhaps continue to watch) as much of the national and international coverage as possible, and others hare perhaps had to turn to news off just to escape.

I was out on my back patio late Sunday evening. I keep late hours and have dinner around 10 PM, and then (weather permitting) head out to my back patio to watch a little (non-news) TV. I deal with Las Vegas news for a living. I don’t even take a phone or a tablet out with me. Just after midnight, I wanted to check something on the computer in my home office. I came inside and found Facebook blowing up. I sat and watched our four local news stations, plus FOX/CNN/MSNBC until 7 AM in disbelief, with a bottle at my side. Not getting trashed. Just getting numb.

The cycle of getting some sleep intertwined with watching TV hasn’t ceased as I write this on Wednesday night. They keep finding out so much more. Word is that 100 Las Vegas Metro (PD) officers are at work, in tandem with another 100 FBI agents.

I want to thank members who took the time to drop me a note, praying and hoping that myself and our small staff was OK. Rick Ziegler (who helps assemble this newsletter, the What We’re Watching, deals with subscriber issues, and actually operates the software that sends it to you) was at the Cosmo with our Gaming writer (and noted gaming author Victor Royer — look him up on Amazon) from 8-11 PM. They were fortunate enough to be safely at home as they became aware. Amy Raynor-Cooley had been at Disneyland with her family for the weekend. None of us know anyone personally at the concert.

Having said that, we love our city so much, and consider all visitors as an extended family which we care very much about. In addition, Amy usually enjoys our comps to many of the outdoor concerts that happen during the year behind The D. We’re all-too-familiar with our hotels, our landscape, and the events which many of you come to enjoy.

How Safe Is Las Vegas Really? – Obviously, since I’m in the tourism industry, you can figure that I’m going to tell you how safe Las Vegas is. Hotels are littered with security cameras. As are street and public areas. Training for all kinds of issues is intensive. You know why you aren’t hearing about anything being botched at any level. Because it wasn’t. As I noted at the start, plans we never want to use are in place for just these kinds of situations.

In fact, a surgeon at University Medical Center (which is just a couple neighborhoods over from me) was quoted as saying that they handle things like this (trauma) all of the time. Just not at this level. I’ve heard that only four of the couple hundred people who were taken to UMC died at the hospital. They saved everyone else. And, keep in mind, this is where the most serious victims were taken. Some of whom will be healing in the hospital for weeks to come.

The “Long” Response? – I heard a couple of news reports questioning why it took 72 minutes from the start of the shooting until they got the shooter. I’m sure many of you took that with a grain of salt. You know that if you even are simply planning to meet someone on the casino floor at a bar, restaurant, or show, you’d better leave your room 10 minutes early. Longer if you are staying at the end of your floor (like the shooter as located).

Going back to the start: First, there was the time it took just to figure out what was happening. Some of you have seen the police body cams from early moments. Once they figured out where the bullets were reigning down from, they had to try to figure out what floor that even was. You know that most newer Strip hotels are sheer walls of glass. It isn’t like you can count up the floors from the outside.

Officers had to get to the hotel, and get up to those floors, and start the process of both searching floors and protecting guests. At the same time, I’m sure a SWAT team was being assembled. We learned that this SWAT team was actually a combination of SWAT officers and regular officers. Kind of an ad-hoc situation.

The Metro police headquarters is downtown, perhaps a mile west of the Fremont Street Experience. A full 10 miles from Mandalay Bay. Now, you have transport time. As we’ve already covered, getting all those guys and equipment from the outside of Mandalay Bay up to that floor, situated, and ready to go added significant time. That’s more than a few elevator rides.

At the end of the day that only 72 minutes elapsed between the beginning of the shooting and breaching the hotel room with the SWAT team in this situation, on the Las Vegas Strip, was nothing short of spectacular. In fact, word is now coming out that it appears the shooter had actually been on planning to escape. He was given no way out early enough that he never left the room.

Too Soon? – Because this is a political topic, and I go to the ends of the earth to keep politics out of my columns (as I’m bound to offend someone), let me warn you in advance. I’ve never owned a firearm. I don’t have a significant horse in this race. I’m not opposed to a national debate on where the line is set on firearms. We should have ongoing national debates on many, many issues.

Having said that, the cry from the anti-gun politicians on Monday Morning was too soon. Way too soon. Yes, I’ve heard the rhetoric that no, it was “too late” after what had happened. No, it was too soon.

Las Vegas as a community, and as a visitor community, and as friends and family of the victims (both those who died, and those who got injured) was still in horrific pain and shock. I don’t even know anyone who got hurt, and my guts were ripped out. Many friends and families of the victims were still finding out what happened on Monday Morning. Could you have at least let the bodies get cold before using tragedies to make political points? That sheer insensitivity isn’t exactly endearing me to the gun-control lobby.

This is a guy who barely had a parking ticket on his record. He was not a person known to local, state, or national law enforcement. The most extensive background check wouldn’t have caught him. He was also a very wealthy person, whom I’m sure had the means to procure whatever methods of destruction he wanted to use, legal or black market. Can many crimes be blamed on easy access to guns? Perhaps. This one? Not so much, in my opinion.

Moving Forward – I spend parts of my day monitoring truckloads of Las Vegas visitor outlets (so you don’t have to). Facebook groups, message boards, you name it. The overwhelming comments suggest that people aren’t going to cancel trips, nor quit coming. Technically, we’re already back to business-as-usual. They were finally able to even re-open The Strip in front of the event venue.

We’ll continue to host the biggest names in entertainment, biggest sporting events, and be a hub of fun and happiness and joy for visitors from around the globe.

I leave you with this Facebook photo courtesy of Las Vegas resident James Perry.

Casino Poker:
For Players Who Want to WIN!

Our Gaming Editor – and Author – “Vegas Vic” – Victor H Royer – has written a new book: “Casino Poker.”

With the World Series of Poker just recently completed here in Las Vegas, maybe next year is your turn! And with this book, you will certainly have a better chance than most.

We asked Vic about this book, and here’s what he had to say:

“Cash is King – and with this book, you too can haul in the Cash, and laugh all the way to the Bank!

In Poker – and Texas Hold ’em especially – knowing how and when to play some of the best hands is a key requirement. Because – while they may be statistically the “best” hands – they don’t always win. And that’s because Poker is much more than just cards! It’s People!

A battle of wits, of knowledge, of experience, skills, observation, and just plain old Chutzpa!

But there’s a lot more to this game than just this. Especially for Texas Hold ’em.

While the game looks simple – and is relatively easy to learn – it’s apparent simplicity belies a true complexity of decisions and outcomes. And just knowing the Odds is not enough.

Math alone will not help you to Win. It’s a useful tool, of course, but Odds, Implied Odds, Pot Odds, and so on, are just a part of the overall arsenal that a good and successful poker player must have.

In the end – Poker is a game of people – and that means that a “hunch”, or an “observation”, or a “tell” are just as important – if not more so – than knowing the math behind the game and all it’s Odds.

In this book, you’ll find the tools and skills you need to make you a Winner! And that’s great for any game! And for your bankroll!” The printed version of this book can be found at this link:
