One more Las Vegas note before moving on:
I wish I had known about AccessVegas.com before my trip last week.
CEO/Managing Editor Ted Newkirk has built up quite a little online Vegas empire with a newsletter (definitely worth checking out).
The site has reviews, hotel deals, ticket deals and, most helpfully, a monthly schedule of what’s playing and where. That’s especially helpful to determine if you’ll be seeing Bette Midler, Cher or Elton John at the Colosseum at Caesar’s.
That reminds me of a funny Vegas moment in the elevator at the Palazzo. Some high school students were talking about what they should go see. The boy said Jersey Boys, and the girl said, “No, please.” Then the boy suggested Bette Midler, to which a scruffy dude in the corner of the elevator chimed in: “Ugh. She’s terrible. You gotta see Cher.” Delighted to know straight guys are still diggin’ the queen of the gypsies, tramps and thieves.
Anyway, back to AccessVegas.com — check it out before you head to Sin City. You won’t be sorry.
