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

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you … The Playboy Club celebrates its one-year anniversary with nine of its famous Bunnies wearing only their birthday suits and bunny ears in the November issue. Shot on location at the Fantasy Tower, Hugh Hefner Sky Villa, Moon Night Club and other Palms locations, cover girl Lindsey Roper said, “It is extremely gratifying to work alongside such beautiful and intelligent women, and to be the representative for such a legendary brand at the only Playboy Club open anywhere in the world.” The Bunnies will be on hand to sign their photo spread Oct. 14.

MICHELE MOORE and Walter Omori (from Walter’s Karaoke) write in to say that Derrick Vaughns, who’s stationed at Pearl Harbor, represented Hawaii in the National Talent Quest Competition in Laughlin and brought home the first-place trophy.

FOUR OUT OF every five high rollers who come to Las Vegas are from Asia. What’s the definition of a Vegas high roller? Someone who bets $50,000 a hand and has a $2 million casino line of credit.
