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


AT THE PRESS conference announcing the opening of 40/40, music mogul Jay-Z said he and long-time GF, Beyonce, are considering a Vegas wedding ... “One day,soon - let’s leave it at that.” The club is part of the new Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino,a 53-story tower that features a 60-foot glass domed entry with a two-story fountain indoors, a shopping mall and a 1,500-seat theater (the future home of Jersey Boys). When it opens in December it will be one of the largest hotel complexes in the world with 7,052 hotel rooms.

SHELDON ADLESON’S other property, Venetian Macao, is the largest single-structure hotel in Asia and the second-largest building in the world. On opening night it reportedly ran out of $10,000 chips ... what, were people taking them for souvenirs?

WET CHIPS - that’s what chip collectors call chips that come from cruise ships ... so they don’t get ‘em confused,the casino chips from river-boats are called “riverboats.” Find out how much your old chips are worth at

MAYOR OSCAR GOODMAN was singing “Let’s talk about sex,baby ...” seems Sin City’s mayor is suggesting local lawmakers revise the statute that makes the world’s oldest profession illegal in Vegas. Does this mean the hookers would have to leave the casinos?

CAPTAINS don’t really go down with the ship, and neither does 50 Cent. When the stage at the Hard Rock collapsed into the pool, the rapper cut his performance short to avoid electrocuting the audience and himself.

JUST IN TIME for the Sept. 25 release of Halo3, Master Chief Petty Officer SPARTAN-117, the Xbox 360 hero, becomes the first video game character to be immortalized in Madame Tussauds house of wax.

ACCORDING TO the Las Vegas Sun, the sports books with the best bets (lowest house edge) on Super Bowl futures are The Venetian (24.3 percent),Hilton (27.6 percent), Wynn (34.95 percent) and the Palms (36.4 percent).Favored to win this year are the New England Patriots (9 to 5).

TO PROMOTE his company, mixed martial arts fighter Tito Ortiz and Jenna Jameson hung out at Magic along with local boy and Team Punishment fighter Kendall “Da Spyder” Grove.

$20,000 is what a suite at Paris will set you back on New Year’s Eve weekend.

Kobe Bryant

BILLIONAIRES like Steve Wynn and Donald Trump suffer from sign envy (on the building, my name is bigger than your name), but everyday millionaires have bottle envy ... at Blush (the new club in the Wynn) the NBA’s Kobe Bryant got into a bottle-off with (pro poker player) Antonio “the Magician” Esfandiari. First Antonio bought two bottles of Cristal,then Kobe bought five - that prompted Antonio to buy seven and then 10 bottles ... finally Kobe bought 15 bottles and left the building. Guess us guys are stuck with the traditional envy from Psych 101.

Criss Angel

BEFORE HER horrible VMA appearance (singer) Britney Spears and (illusionist) Criss Angel partied with (rapper) Snoop Dogg at Body English. No swinging from the chandeliers,please ... the ones on the ceiling at the Hard Rock club are made of Baccarat crystal. The big one is worth $250,000 and the smaller ones $75,000 each. On average after a weekend of debauchery, Monday morning repairs cost the club about $5,000.
