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

WHAT’S THE LARGEST Las Vegas point spread ever on an NFL game? That would be last week-end’s New England vs. Philadelphia game, where the Patriots were a 25 point favorite over the Eagles.

WE’RE ALL familiar with the temporary insanity surrounding “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday,” but have you heard of “The Nightmare before Christmas”? That’s what officials call the traffic jam that starts the day before Thanksgiving when 200,000 California drivers hit the I-15 and 215 freeways each day of the four-day weekend to visit Tutu in Vegas.

EASY MONEY ... A former Hard Rock beverage manager is suing Dennis Rodman, saying that the ex-NBA All-Star assaulted her by low-fiving her backside. She’s also charging her former employer for terminating her employment after she complained about the incident. A few years ago a jury awarded Mirage craps dealer James Brasich $80,000 because he was humiliated by Rodman’s rubbing the dice on his head, chest, stomach and private area.

WILL THE FAKE Plaza please go away ... The Downtown Las Vegas Plaza and the Plaza Las Vegas (to be built on the old New Frontier site) are headed to District Court to decide who gets to be the real Plaza. Tamares Las Vegas Properties LLC, owner of the downtown Plaza, says that the new property’s brand is a copyright infringement. Elad, owner/developer of the Strip project (and owner of the Plaza, New York), claims that it should also be able to use the name because its property will be more “Plaza-like, more beautiful” than the one downtown.

THE BAND that started 47 years ago continues to make history ...

The Beatles Revolution Lounge in the Mirage is winner of the 2007 Hotel Industries’ HOSPY Award for being the best nightclub in the world.

Get your tickets now at or by calling (808) 341-5820, because no tickets will be sold at the door. Hoku Zuttermeister and Kealo Koko are guests of the Sons’ Christmas Concert in Las Vegas.

AT JET, the other Mirage club, Joanna Krupa, who Playboy calls “The Sexiest Swimsuit Model in the World,“had a party to celebrate the release of her 2008 swimsuit calendar.
