Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – This issue, we’re digging into the ever changing face of Las Vegas. Which includes casino ownership and possible sales. Which may affect your comp and gambling situation. Plus, the usual odds-and ends.

Also, Uber is stepping up to the plate and working on changes to their app to make it even easier for you to follow the updated safety tips we gave you last issue. Always be safe!

Hoover Dam Updates – Expert Group Member and top local tour guide Mark Anthony has published an article (and video) on the latest for those of you considering visiting Hoover Dam. You can read it here: Hoover Dam Tours Updates (updated). If you have chosen to be part of our members-only Facebook group, you can also click over there with any comments or questions for Mark!

AirBnB Becoming A Thing – Slowly but surely, house/condo/private room rentals are becoming more popular in Las Vegas. Those of you who have visited various beach (and other) destinations know that private condo rentals — usually listed on VBRO.com — have been available for a couple of decades.

This option admittedly isn’t for everyone. If you like to roll out of bed in a casino, toss on some clothes, and have the chimes and chirps of slot machines greet you at the bottom of the elevator while you go in search of some coffee, that isn’t going to happen when you rent a private home/condo. Nor will there be spa or room service.

However, as I was quoted in this recent article, they have their market. You can rent a car for what you are saving in parking fees, no resort fees, no parking fees, the choice to park for free on The Strip (Treasure Island, Venetian, Casino Royale, Planet Hollywood, Tropicana) or take a cheap ride-share if you want to drink, and having a pool all to your own group that doesn’t close at 7 PM (if you pick a place with a pool) are all benefits.

Not to mention buying any supplies (snacks, liquor, etc) at locals places with locals prices, and the ability to eat at non-tourist area restaurants which are decidedly less expensive than The Strip. Even if this isn’t your choice of vacation stay option, you have good reason to root for it: The hotels can’t be so “take it or leave it” with fees if people exercise other options.

Tram Finally Running – For those who enjoy it, the tram between Treasure Island and Mirage is back up-and-running. Many started to wonder if it wasn’t shut down for good.

Want To Buy A Wedding Chapel? – The world famous (seriously) Little White Wedding Chapel — located about halfway between Stratosphere and Fremont Street — is for sale if you have $12 million. Quite a few celebrities have been married or renewed vows there, and it has been featured in countless travel shows and documentaries about Las Vegas as you can choose just about any wedding option from having Elvis marry you, to getting hitched at their drive-through window!

Too Late To Buy A Casino – The Lucky Dragon casino (next to the big gift shop across from SLS) has sold. It went under only months after opening. Of all people, a local equipment rental magnate has purchased it out of bankruptcy.

As he intends to turn it into a non-gaming property (the casino will become meeting and convention space) aimed at business travelers, you’ve probably heard the last of it.

That is, unless you choose to visit the legendary Golden Steer steakhouse which now sits in the shadow of the property. Pro Hint: If you enjoy a fine cigar after your steak, mozy a few doors down to the En Fuego Cigar Lounge. For you old timers, En Fuego cigars used to be Don Yeyo, and had a store on East Fremont. Same solid hand-rolled cigars, new name, new location.

Or Maybe Not – You can’t buy the Lucky Dragon, but the push to sell both Cosmopolitan and Rio is heating up. More particularly, some or all of Caesars Entertainment is up for sale. If, the price is right. Now that corporate raider Carl Ichan owns a controlling portion of the company, and has installed his own CEO, he’s set himself up in a win-win situation. Here are the scenarios for you loyal Total/Caesars Rewards fans:

– Caesars (the company) could be bought out in a reverse merger by Landry’s (Golden Nugget casinos) or Eldorado Resorts (26 gambling properties including Tropicana Laughlin/Atlantic City). Never say never, but I’m just not seeing either of those happen right now. Nor do I think it would work out well for all involved. But if it does, all bets are off regarding the future.

– Caesars might dump off The Rio, Planet Hollywood, and/or who knows whatever else. Depends what makes sense to sell. This would trim down the company a bit, and certainly help reduce debt. Probably with little affect on you players except for the lack of ability to get comped at (and earn comps at) the properties they no longer own. If you rack up your comps at one of their regional casinos and they sell it, not so good for you.

– Nothing. That’s right. Possibly nothing may happen. And, that might be a good thing. Their new CEO has a gaming background. Whereas previous CEO’s (and the current CEO of MGM Resorts) had been hired for their ability with finances. Which has no relation to understanding gaming and gamblers.

With one “owner” calling the corporate shots, it looks to me as the pressure to have amazing quarterly earnings are off. The company can toy with the concept becoming more player-friendly (looser slots, better table game rules) and see if that starts to attract gamblers.

Let’s face it: When you take that $100 out of your wallet, you have a pretty good idea it won’t be coming back to you. (Although when it does, that is always awesome). BUT… you want to be able to have some fun and play for a while! Maybe get more than 2-3 drinks from the cocktail waitress during the time it takes you to lose the $100.

With MGM Resorts hell-bent on being the company of conventions and concerts/sports, the door is wide open for Caesars Entertainment to return to being a premier gaming (gambling) company.

Hope you are enjoying this issue!

Cirque du Soleil is all about moments. It may be just one moment in any of its six Las Vegas Strip productions, perhaps not even the most iconic imagery associated with that particular show, but it’s unforgettable all the same. And isolating a single scene—and thinking about it for days afterward—can really make one appreciate the exhaustive artistry injected into every detail.

Members Mania

Note From Ted: This Members Mania is actually about Members Mania, and our news links. I always appreciate feedback of all kinds. If you feel we’ve changed something you like, we want to look into that. If you have an area of interest you’d like to see more of, we want to consider that as well.

You can always reach me one of three ways: 1. We have the form in the members area. 2. You can hit reply to the new issue notification email or 3. You can say something in our Facebook Group.

Glad to hear your rehabilitation is going well. I have been a long time member and enjoy all of the information that you provide us.

I am a paying member and have no problem doing so. The links to the articles from the Review Journal now want me to subscribe to them in order to read these articles. My question is, can this same information be found elsewhere so that you can quit linking The Review Journal articles, so that I do not have to pay twice? Not being able to read an article in the newsletter is frustrating to a paying customer.

 

Ted Responds:

Great question and one we’re trying to work on:

We search other sources first, and use them to link to stories. We only run an R-J story if there is no other coverage we can link to. Having said that, they ARE the newspaper of record and cover far more than the TV and radio stations and other free outlets we can link to.

I toyed with the idea of running an executive summary for people who can’t get to the article because of the paywall on the R-J site. Perhaps at least a summary of the basics, but something that does not get us in legal trouble. As you are aware, you simply can’t poach what someone else writes.

So, we’re looking at options that won’t get us in trouble, but give our readers the info they need to keep up and/or for future visits. This IS an important issue and I WILL have a solution sooner than later.

I am allowed to comment and give my thoughts on other sources. However, we simply can’t pretty much copy and paste from other sources. Nor do we. I have a great relationship with the Review-Journal and wish to keep it that way.

Thanks for the input!

 

Don’t you show people’s travels and opinions any more of what to do and what their stay was like in Vegas? I liked reading their stories. Am I missing this somewhere? That’s why I mainly joined.

Judy Goldhawk

 

Ted Responds:

We are continuing to do Members Mania. What is happening is that we will get multiple questions about the same thing. For example, Uber issues.

Hence, last issue I responded to those. But, it wasn’t to a specific person.

As far as people sharing visit experiences, that has always been hit-and-miss. Sometimes, we’ll get tons of reports in a short amount of time. Sometimes it can be some time between then, and we are answering readers questions instead.

We’re not making any changes or doing anything different. I simply work with what gets sent in. If we’re getting a bunch of questions asking about slot payoffs, I’ll do a Members Mania on that. If we get trip reports more than questions, we post those.

 

I remember in your newsletters that there used to be a section where you could see who/what shows will be happening the week you visit. I must be missing it because I don’t see it and I’m trying to see who/what is going on the week of 9/7-9/14. I just booked my tickets to see Donny & Marie (using your discount code- thanks!) but was looking to see what else is going on that week.

Tonya Schneller-Music

 

Ted Responds:

We had issues with our ticket provider. Hence, we dropped a number of ticket links.

I have chatted with Amy (who was very concerned about this as well regarding us not having the listings we used to). We are going to reinstate the full listings, simply linking to other sources for tickets. Do have some patience as it may take a few weeks for the listings to totally fill in again.

Moving forward, I’ll be looking over various options that may (or may not) allow us to offer discount codes on various residencies. However, no promises there. I’m simply going to explore. Obviously, if something is selling well, there are no discounts. And/or various ticket outlets won’t work with anybody. Period. They have the tickets. You have to go to them to get the tickets. That is life.

But, we’re always doing the best we can for you!

Doing a Vegas girls trip in your 20’s is an extreme sport. It’s like being on the Full Throttle Ride at Magic Mountain. Everything’s a blur, someone will probably throw up, cry, and may even lose their shoes. And yet, it’s still a magical experience. In 2007, I did a Vegas trip with 5 other girlfriends in one hotel room.

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – “Summer” weather is getting here and not a day too soon. When I say “summer”, I mean the kind of temps which many of you consider summertime temps. I’m NOT referring to our Las Vegas summer where we get over 100F for about three straight months. So, take a deep breath on that one if your trip is pending.

I am pleased to report that my right shoulder rehab continues to go well. About five weeks ago, I could start using the computer “normally” (previously, I used the mouse left-handed and my right hand pretty much stayed in place over the keyboard). About three weeks ago, I was able to use the computer (for the most part) pain-free.

While I am facing another serious long-term health challenge, I am pleased to report we’ll be back getting into the swing of things. For those who noticed that I wasn’t quite myself so far this year, working in pain/limitations had quite a bit to do with that.

Near Miss At $300,000 – Those sports fans among us (I’m certainly one) watched the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament with the usual amount of interest. As a native Oregonian, I kept my eye on the red-hot Ducks men’s team. (The Lady Ducks actually made it to their Final Four, which was very impressive itself).

That gets a whole lot more interesting when you live in Las Vegas. It is one thing to win your office pool and collect a few hundred (or thousand) dollars. It is another thing to have a life-changing amount of money on the line.

The big story this year was a man who is a regular at the Westgate hotel. When Texas Tech hit a rough patch earlier this year, he laid down $1500 on them to win the championship. If they won, he was to collect $300,000 (oh, plus the $1500 back which he originally bet). Texas Tech did go to the championship game. They did take that game to overtime. But, they lost. No word (that I can find so far) on whether he hedged his bet by taking the other side to win in the championship game.

I had no preferred team nor bet in that game. But, I watched with rapt interest just thinking about the emotional roller coaster some of these bigger bettors were going through! Speaking of…

Don’t Forget Your Futures Bet – If you are not fortunate enough to live in one of the states where sports betting is now legal, make sure you get some kind of futures bet down on your next visit. (Futures bets are when you bet a team to win a championship, win their division, or similar. They can be as simple as betting who will win a playoff series which is underway or just about to begin). Always fun to have that ticket when you get back home. And, if you bet a bit of a long shot, any payoff might help pay for an unexpected trip to come collect your winnings!

Late breaking “just before we go to press” note: A William Hill (sports book) bettor places an $85,000 bet on Tiger Woods to win the Masters. Tiger’s win earned the bettor $1.19 million!

Note: You can generally claim winning tickets by mail as well. Ask when you place the bet, or simply check the reverse side of your ticket for info.

$2000 And 50 Friends? – We fairly regularly get asked for unique or unusual things to do here. And/or things off the beaten path (for those who have visited plenty of times, are in a rut, and just not familiar with all of the other zillion things to enjoy within a couple hours of Las Vegas). Which, by the way, is why we’re so proud to have our “Your Guy In Vegas” feature. In the members area, you’ll find the link to the question form!

The latest really cool one is the pool in the outfield at our new baseball stadium. Let me back up on this one: The longtime Las Vegas 51’s AAA minor league baseball team has moved from Cashman field (downtown) to a brand new, state-of-the-art, “nicer than some of the big league stadiums” venue west of town a few miles. Specifically, next to the Golden Knights training facility and Red Rock Casino.

Like a handful of other stadiums of various sports around the country, they stuck a real life swimming pool in the outfield. The per-game cost is $2000 and you can invite (or divvy the cost up) among up to 50 friends. Wedding party, bachelor party, corporate event, family reunion… this would surely be a lifetime Vegas memory (that would be perfect for rubbing in people’s faces on social media). If any of you do it, we want a report!

Don’t Play This Denomination! – Or, perhaps do. Speaking of $2000, let’s discuss it:

The one singular game and denomination you won’t catch me playing is 50 cents video poker. (If not a VP player, read on as I do have some more general gambling thoughts). This all comes down to tax math. When you play quarters ($1.25 per hand) and hit a royal flush, you win $1000. While you are technically supposed to report ALL gaming wins to the IRS (noted for legal reasons), the casino isn’t required to get your ID and info unless a slot jackpot is over $1199. Hence, most people simply don’t report the cash win.

However, on a 50 cent machine, that royal flush pays $2000. Which gives you some nice IRS paperwork to go along with it. Which means, you MUST pay taxes on the win. Use your own tax bracket and do the math: If you pay 25% of your income in taxes, you just got dinged $500 on that win. So, you really won $1500. Which means that on a 50 cent machine, you are risking twice as much money to only win 1.5 times as much money. That isn’t fair!

Now, some of you will note that you get your profit/loss statement every year from your players cards. Which you can use to prove losses and offset this $2000 win. Which you can, as long as you have racked up at least $2000 worth of aggregate losses during a year.

However, what happens when you hit a nice jackpot on your last visit of the year? Putting you into positive win territory for the year? Don’t laugh. It happens. Our friend Tony Snyder of Vice Lounge Online pooled some money with three friends to play a higher-limit slot last year. They hit for $10,000. You can listen to all of the fun details in their Vice Lounge Online Episode 323.

How to work out the taxes and paperwork is a whole ‘nother story. But now, that win also may put you in a position to pay the taxes on that $2000 royal flush on the 50 cent machine.

Now… I’ll readily admit that isn’t the only way to think about this. I look at it this way because 1. Over the course of my life, I’ve played (and perhaps will play) a ton of video poker. So, while many of you are thinking “I may never hit a royal, and if I do, I’ll be so happy I won’t care about taxes”, I’m playing closer to the average lifetime results. Which means I look to play games where the pay tables are more player-friendly, and absolutely account hitting the occasional royal into the overall payback. (I’ve hit quite a few, certainly too many to remember or note).

If you are simply playing to play, and the 50 cent machine ($2.50 per hand max bet), and if $2.50 per pull is the sweet spot that gets your blood rushing a little bit without making you start to think about being in over your head, then by all means just play on and enjoy.

Will we always be happy to tell you about the “best” ways to play, or what to watch out for? Of course! However, we also understand that sometimes you just want to have fun. You probably don’t live here. You probably don’t spend hours per week at home on a gambling simulator learning all of the “perfect” moves for every single game or machine. Taking some money, sticking it in a machine you want to play, and just having some fun is not a crime.

Hope you are enjoying this issue!

Members Mania

We’ve been using Uber during our visits. It is easy and convenient, and we’re no longer worried about visiting something away from The Strip and being unable to get a cab back.

Couple of questions: We’re concerned about the news reports around the country of people getting into Ubers and getting abducted or accosted. Also, while I’m at it, why do so many of the Las Vegas hotels put their Uber pick-up out-of-the-way when the cab pick-up is right in front of the hotel?

 

Ted Responds:

I’m a big fan of ride share services. Not only for the new (and less expensive) world they are opening up for our visitors, but for me personally. As you noted, you can go places like the Pinball Museum, Neon Museum, Frankie’s Tiki Room (locals fave near downtown, one-of-a-kind place), some locals restaurant that is getting raves, any locals casino or wherever else your heart desires without paying a cabbie a fortune, and without getting stranded (as cabs are loathe to pick up anyone outside of the tourism areas).

This came into play personally a few weeks ago. Getting a cab in the residential areas of Las Vegas has always been based on luck. If you are lucky, a cab might actually show up in the next couple hours after you call! I had an important medical procedure to get to. My car was sitting dutifully in the garage. With a flat tire! I pulled up my Uber app, ordered a ride, and they were at my house in 5 minutes. No muss, no fuss, no missed appointment fee, no rescheduling a very important procedure.

As far as safety concerns: While these reports are few and far between (when you look at the fact that ride-sharing is now worldwide), you can follow a couple of simple steps to make sure the car pulling up is actually YOUR ride. 1. The app will show you a picture of the driver and of the car. Pay attention and cross-check! 2. You can poke your head in the car (before you get in) and say “Who are you picking up?”. IE, make them tell YOU. If they are your driver, they have your name on their phone as the person they are picking up and should be able to name you.

As far as pick-up spots, these hotels were built before the ride-sharing era and designating areas for them was originally an afterthought. Circa (the new hotel going in where the old Las Vegas Club was downtown) is actually designing their garage with ride-share in mind instead of as an add-on. No word on Resort World (former Stardust property), but I have to imagine they will be doing something similar.

Hope this helps!

Mary Jane Hike Las Vegas Nevada

(Producers Notes) Less than one hour from the heart of the Las Vegas strip you can reach a completely different landscape from the hot desert floor in the valley. High up on Mt Charleston there is a little waterfall created by melting spring snow at an even higher elevation.

The climb is a moderately difficult one, a slow climb starts through the gravel wash up the side of the mountain. Once you arrive at the switchbacks this is when things get difficult. Higher elevation means less oxygen coupled with the increased demand for it, and exposure to the sun, make for an exhausting ascent. There is are several shady spots to stop and take a break to drink. Make sure you bring plenty of water, sun screen and watch out for dog poo.
