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

PITTSBURGH STEELER Richard Seigler was cut from the team after police issued a warrant for his arrest. He was charged with running a prostitution ring in the city where he was born and raised. The world’s oldest profession is illegal in Las Vegas ... even if you only manage a couple of girls during the football off season.

THE DRINK OF KINGS ... one of the most expensive drinks in the world is the $1,000 King Richard’s Pride served at BOA Steakhouse at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. If you’d like to make one at home, you’ll need two ounces of Richard Hennessy, 3/4 ounce Dom Perignon Rose 1996, 1/2 ounce Chambord Liqueur Royal de France, 1 muddled orange slice, the juice from half a lime and a splash of cranberry juice - however, for the identical experience, you’ll need to serve it in Baccarat Equinoxe stemware.

LAST CHANCE to hoot like an owl ... The Hooters Hotel & Casino has been sold to Hedwigs Las Vegas Top Tier for $95 million, plus assumption of $130 million in debt. As predicted by many, scantily clad, well-endowed women wearing orange was not enough of a draw in a city like Vegas. The sale is expected to close in October; no word yet on the hotel’s new theme.

MONTY PYTHON fans may want to check out Spamalot sooner than later - rumors abound that attendance is less than expected and it too may go the way of Avenue Q.

THE VEGAS version of the Parker Brothers Monopoly game continues ... W Las Vegas, a 50-acre project behind Planet Hollywood and Hard Rock, has been canceled. After acquiring the land from George Clooney’s failed Las Ramblas project, the developers could not come up with the money to build the project. Before you get teary-eyed and start to feel sorry for them, a nice payday is still ahead when the land sells for $12 million to $20 million per acre.

NEONOPOLIS, the tourist attraction downtown that’s been suffering from lack of tourists, is changing its name (in hopes of changing its visitor count) to The Fremont Square.

THE STARS were out at the opening of the Venetian’s new VIP lounge Tao Beach, attracting Helen Mirren (The Queen), Diddy (P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, Sean John), Will Ferrell (actor), 50 Cent (rapper) and more. In addition to the stuff you’ve gotten accustomed to having in your cabana (HD plasma TV, DVD, Xbox and tons of movies and games), you’ll also get a custom stocked mini fridge, chilled towels, private masseuse, personal misters and even a tanning butler ... a what?

DIDJA HEAR about the Blackjack player who got so mad because he kept losing that he peed on the dealer’s feet? How about the guy who picked his nose then wiped his finger on the cards? Security ... both players were escorted from the premises.

GET MORE Kimo’s Vegas online at,, in both issues of “MidWeek” and with Billy V. Friday morning at 7:20 on Hawaiian105 KINE.
