WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas … join us on the radio this week as we talk story with Punahou grad, Ms. Fitness 2004 and Cirque du Soleil performer Sarah Harding, and also Brian Robison will be talking about our ‘aumakua, the shark, and the Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef.

LADIES LOOKING for diversions … the best Chippendales are in Vegas doing photo shoots for their upcoming 2006 calendar.

COMING SOON … help for even the most clueless of best men, The Las Vegas Little Black Book: A Guy’s Guide to the Perfect Vegas Weekend. What guys want from a bachelor party, where to find it and how much to pay for it!

Kailua High grad Jacquelyn Holland
and the cast of ‘Mamma Mia’
just celebrated their 1,000th
performance at Mandalay Bay

CONGRATS TO Kailua High School grad Jacquelyn Holland and the cast of Mamma Mia on their 1,000th performance — she’s the female lead. Now in its third year at the Mandalay Bay, more than 1 million people have seen the show in Vegas (23 million worldwide).

SEEN AT the Palms — MTV execs scouting for their new show Date My Mom! Did you know that the Club Palms player’s club points can be used for the ultimate vacation souvenir (sometimes known as the drunken stupor souvenir) — a tattoo! The Las Vegas Review Journal has voted the Palms as having the best paying slots four years in a row. This month it’s the Super Summer Hummer Giveaway — use your Club Palms card and win $203,000 in cash and a Hummer.

MEGABUCKS, now more than $15 million, is statistically due to hit. Last Halloween the machine hit for $13.6 million at the Palms. Normally the jackpot gets reset to $7 million after a payoff — this time the new starting point will be $10 million to match the penny Megabucks machine.

KEEP THIS in mind when you hit the big one … Madame Tussauds, the Wax Museum folks in Vegas, can help you leave something for future generations to remember you by. For $300,000 they’ll do for you what they’ve done for Ben Affleck, Shaq, Hugh Hefner and many, many others — you’ll be immortalized in wax. Included in the price is first-class air, accommodations and a three-day stay in London where the artisans from the original museum will create your wax clone.

POP DIVA-ETTE Willa Ford polishes her pumps as she joins the Pussycat Dolls in the Caesars Palace Lounge (named after the Dolls). This is not a T-n-A show … it’s really all about their talent, they sing, they dance and there’s a lot of T-n-A.

IF YOU’RE going clubbing in Vegas, the lines at the hot clubs are long to separate those with the ability to waste money (pay $500 or more for a table) from those with … shall we say … “more sensibility.” Get VIP passes to almost every club in Vegas for pennies on eBay before you go Vegas.

WITH THE crowning of the NBA’s ’05 champs, who’s the fave to take it all in 2006? Spurs 5/2 (win $5 bet $2), the Heat 11/2, Detroit 7/1, Phoenix 8/1 and Phil’s Lakers are 35/1.

Every week we give away a pair of tickets to V the Ultimate Variety Show or the Fab Four. To win, send an e-mail (or USPS MidWeek) to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Send us your Vegas news, reunions and stories too!
