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

LINDSAY LOHAN’S twoday, get-out-of-rehab/21st birthday party at Pure Las Vegas is officially cancelled ... kinda. In an epiphany of sobriety, the club and Li-Lo’s handlers agree such an appearance may not be in the actress’s best interest. The management, however, is reserving the right to continue advertising the celebration so fans can raise a glass in her honor.

NBA team owners have agreed to further examine the possibility of a Las Vegas team by creating a committee of owners to check it out. Maybe the Seattle Supersonics will find a home in the desert after all.

VEGAS LOCALS joke that traffic on the Strip is like a parking lot. Well, now it really will be. Clark County commissioners have approved a plan creating a parking lot on the Strip. The half-million-dollar project will create a dozen parking spots, two handicapped stalls and space for a tour bus. For years now, tourists have been stopping illegally, creating traffic and a road hazard, just to get a picture of the world’s most famous sign ...

THE LAS VEGAS WHALE is that rare breed that will bet $50,000 a hand or several million dollars over a weekend. An estimated 80 percent of the whales who visit Las Vegas are Asian, and the casinos will do anything to woo these V-VIPs, including 8,000-square-foot suites filled with Asian antiques.

COMEDY CHANNEL regular Carlos Mencia brings his observational humor to the Palm’s Pearl for the third time this year on Oct. 20. Get your tickets early so you’re not a “DEE-dee-dee!”

MORE VEGAS skyline changes ... billionaire Kirk Kerkorian, who owns 56 percent of the MGM Mirage Corporation, has withdrawn his proposal to take possession of the Bellagio and CityCenter. This happened right after the company announced a joint venture with Kerzner International to build a new multibillion-dollar resort at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara. It’s still too early to know if owners of the Atlantis casino/resort in the Bahamas are planning a Vegas clone of their Paradise Island playground.

IN THE NEXT five years, 40,000 new hotel rooms will be added to the Vegas Strip.

ALMOST LIKE the movie ... Sarah Talley, a dancer at the Spearmint Rhino, said she met George Clooney in the club’s VIP room. The Oscar winner then took her and her son to his Beverly Hills mansion aboard his private jet, cooked romantic meals and bought her son expensive gifts. Unfortunately for Sarah, in the movie Pretty Woman the girl got the guy for a slightly different ending.

WHAT WOULD BE luckier than eating a Le Burger Brasserie’s $777 Kobe beef and Maine lobster burger on July 7, 2007 at 7:07? Lining up the red, white and blue 7’s on the $5 machine at the Fremont and bringing home $50,000, just like Zenaida Andres of Lahaina.
