Monty Python's SPAMALOT at Wynn Las Vegas

WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas … The Player’s Edge!

Mike Tyson's not giving it away
Mike Tyson’s not giving it away

IT’S OFFICIAL! Heidi Fleiss says, “Mike Tyson is my Big Stallion” at her new all-male escort brothel. About his new job, Mike said, “I don’t care what any man says, it’s every man’s dream to please every woman — and get paid for it.” Hopefully they’ll all be young and rich! Save your pennies, ladies, a ride with the Iron Man is one of those … “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it”! Get the address to Mike’s new office at

$100 MILLION … that’s how much kala the new owners have spent to remodel the Golden Nugget. The pool alone set them back $20 million! I know it’s cold, but check out the three-story water slide that goes through the 200,000-gallon shark aquarium … now who’s the sushi?

THE READERS of Strictly Slots magazine voted the Golden Nugget The Best Overall Casino Hotel, Best for Reel Slots, Best Slot Variety and bunch of other “Best ofs.” 

THE “LUCKIEST CASINO” in all of Downtown, according to the same survey, is the Main Street Station. You know a bunch of Hawaiians voted for that one.

KEEP YOUR fingers crossed! At this year’s G2E (convention for the casino industry), Nevada gaming regulators said they would consider allowing casinos to change slot machine payouts based on the customer playing the game. So if you are a Whale (as identified by your player’s card) you might be playing a different paying game than a Minnow. Personally I like it the way it is now, where we all have an equal opportunity to give to the casino. That’s why we locals love Vegas so much … because we know it’s better to give than receive!

PETER MAX has created a one-of-a-kind Baldwin Baby 5-foot-2-inch Grand piano that’s being sold to raise funds for The Gibson Foundation and Max’s Global Works Foundation. The piano is on display at the Art of Peter Max Gallery at Caesars Palace.

MY FAVORITE display is back at the Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens! A 45-foot-tall Shasta fir complete with a high tech lighting system, with a polar bear family made of white carnations, and reindeer made out of seeds and pecans. It’s the exact kind of display I’d have … if I had an atrium and a few million dollars.

LAST YEAR casino mogul Steve Wynn sold his exclusive home on the world’s most exclusive golf course, “Shadow Creek,” for $15.5 million. Today you can own the home where Clint Eastwood got married for $28 million!

THE REAL-LIFE high-stakes Monopoly game continues in Vegas … Harrah’s Entertainment is still mulling over its $15.05 billion offer. Billionaire Kirk Kerkorian is increasing his stake in the MGM Mirage from 55.9 percent to 61.1 percent (that’s an $825 million cash investment) and Station Casinos received a $4.7 billion buyout offer from its founding family.

GET MORE Kimo’s Vegas at, in both issues of “MidWeek,” in Oceanic Time Warner’s “Around Hawaii,” on OC16 Monday at 9 p.m., on The New ESPN 1420 Thursday night at 7 and with Billy V. Friday morning at 7:20 on Hawaiian105 KINE.
