JOHN MAYER brings his CONTINUUM tour to the Mandalay Bay Events Center June 8. The singer/songwriter has five Grammys and was named one of today’s “New Guitar Gods” by Rolling Stone Magazine. For sure you’ll hear all his hits including Waiting On The World To Change.

CELEBRATING HIS divorce and $1 million settlement, Kevin Federline, the ex-Mr. Britney Spears,was spotted at Caesars Palace Venus Pool last week.

SPEAKING OF pools, the Mandalay Bay just completed its $30 million pool expansion and upgrades.What does that kinda coin buy you? An air-conditioned, glass-walled outdoor casino and villa-like cabanas with a private pool! Bring your plastic - a day in those cabanas can go for $2,000; however for a little less than half of that you can hang at the Moorea Beach Club, which features European bathing.

WHAT HAPPENS in Legoland ... at a cost of more than $1 million, it took 15 designers three years to build the mini-Vegas. There are 10 mini replicas of Las Vegas’s most well-known hotels including the Luxor, TI,Venetian and a 20-foot-tall Stratosphere. The display even has wedding chapels,limos,the folks who pass out fliers (slappers) and scantily clad women (makes you wonder who it’s for). See a video of the entire Lego Vegas at
