Vegas CD release party

PARIS HILTON is having a CD release party in Vegas. It’s more of a carnival than a party, with variety acts, go-go dancers, live bands, spring jumpers, little people, sword swallowers, stilt walkers, monkeys, goats, a guy who jumps rope with three ladies on his back, record-breaking stunts and 10,000 people. The Paris block party is happening just south of Imperial Palace on Caesar’s Way across the street from Caesar’s Palace. The joke may be on us ... Paris can actually sing.

THIS WEEK on Kimo’s Vegas TV we check out the Monte Carlo. Visit the Vegas Channel 777 and to win a wedding at the Monte Carlo.

FINALLY, this is not pretty, but ... 200 British poker players competed at London’s Café Royale for $20,000 in cash, the title of World Strip Poker Champion and the coveted fig leaf trophy. Each player was provided with six pieces of clothing to bet with and were eliminated when they were naked.
