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

EX-ISLE RESIDENT Charo does a one-nighter at the Rampart Casino Nov. 25. She’s currently on tour to promote her latest CD Charo & Guitar. Tickets to her show include a comp at the Rampart Buffet. Did you know that she learned to play guitar from the famous Andres Segovia, and that she cameoed on the Love Boat more than any other star? Cuchi, cuchi.

THE CONTEMPORARY jazz band Hiroshima, who penned the local hit that became the HECO theme song, Hawaiian Electric, performs at Station Casino’s “The Railhead” Nov. 10. Their latest album, Little Tokyo, was released in May and is their 14th to date.

CHRISTMAS IS the one holiday that doesn’t get much decoration by the hotels in Las Vegas. Sure, you’ll find a tree here and there and an oversize ornament or two in the malls, but all-out displays like one in the Bellagio Atrium are rare. However, the Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Botanical Gardens gets into the spirit of the holidays. The Christmas lighted factory walk starts at sunset and it’s free ... where else can you see lighted cacti and eat free chocolate?

IF YOU HAVE a Harrah’s Total Rewards players club card, you’re not alone - it has more than 43 million people in its database. Even more amazing, more than 13 million people have used their card in the last year!

BLACKSTONE’S, the steak-house at the Monte Carlo named after the world-famous magician, closes permanently Oct. 28.

LOOK FOR The Las Vegas Hilton’s Football Central and watch the games on 11 giant screens and one super 15-by-20-foot HDTV screen. The Miller Girls and the Las Vegas Vodka Girls will be on hand, and you can win a Ford Mustang and other prizes. The doors open Sunday at 9 a.m.

Check out the latest prop at the Hilton Sports Book, NO -600 (wager $600 to win $100) and YES (they will go undefeated) +500 (wager $100 to win $500). Only one team in football history finished its season undefeated ... the 1972 Miami Dolphins.

LAST YEAR 45,000 fans attended The Pioneer Las Vegas Bowl, and this year’s (16th annual) game has already sold out. The Dec. 22 game has the top-ranked Mountain West Conference team playing the fourth- or fifth-place team from the Pac-10. The game also can be seen on ESPN.

THIS WEEKEND Carmen Electra hosted the grand opening of “Poetry,” a new hip-hop and R&B club at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.
