WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!
CARMEN ELECTRA releases her new video called Vegas Strip.The aerobic striptease video was filmed entirely on location at the MGM Grand’s Studio 54. This release brings the centerfold/actress’s total fitness DVDs to five. Did you know she got the name Carmen Electra from Prince?
IT’S THAT TIME when we reflect on what’s happened as we look forward to starting the new year. Based on ticket sales, the Top 10 Las Vegas shows of 2007 are:
1) Céline Dion: A New Day
2) Cirque du Soleil: The Beatles: LOVE
3) Cirque du Soleil: O
4) Elton John: The Red Piano
5) Bette Midler
6) Monty Python’s Spamalot
7) Blue Man Group
8) David Copperfield
9) Le Rêve
10) Cirque du Soleil: KÀ
CELINE performed 717 shows in A New Day‘s almost five-year run at Caesars, making her the second- longest-running Las Vegas shows. Maintaining his title as King of Sin City gigs is Elvis Presley with 837.
BETTE MIDLER has some huge shoes to fill ... Celine Dion’s A New Day has grossed more (in ticket sales) than all the other top 10 shows combined!
MAYBE THAT’S WHY Caesar’s Palace has increased its table lim- its so Blackjack players can bet $25,000 per hand (up from $10,000), crap shooters can drop $50,000 on any line bet (up from $5,000) and $10,000 on the hard- ways (up from $500).
OR MAYBE they needed money to pay for the 17 criminal misdemeanor citations they received for improper remodeling at the Rio and Harrah’s. Four citations went to the Rio, and Harrahs had an unlucky 13.Another citation went to a company-owned warehouse that oversaw all the remodeling.
THE IMPERIAL PALACE is migrating its Imperial Players Club to the Harrah’s Total Rewards program this month. No worry ... your existing comp dollars will be converted, one for one (dollar for dollar).
UKULELE MAN Jake Shimabukuro jams at the Canyon Club inside the Four Queens hotel on Saturday (Dec. 29).
CHEF CHARLIE PALMER (Charlie Palmer Steak - Four Seasons & Aureole - Mandalay Bay) is rumored to be opening a 400-room self-titled boutique hotel in downtown Las Vegas that’ll include a fine-dining restaurant on the top floor.
THE PALAZZO opening was postponed until Dec. 28. Folks with reservations were accommodated next door at the Venetian.
ACTRESS MISCHA BARTON is the celebrity hostess for the grand opening of CatHouse at the Luxor. No, it’s not that kind of cat house - this is the kind that combines a restaurant,lounge and stage in the style of a 19th century Parisian bordello (maybe it is that kine).
“WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS” ... may be broadcast on HDNet. Seen shooting folks in front of the new LAX Nightclub inside Luxor was the crew of Pure Confessions. Like its reality show cousin Taxi Cab Confessions, producers hope to get revealing answers from Vegas party goers.
MICHAEL JACKSON was spot- ted (with keiki Prince, Paris and Blanket in tow) at a bookstore in Vegas. The Jacksons spent three hours and left with several boxes of books.
DEAN MATSUDA of Honolulu won $2,000, Maestro Punahele of Kaneohe won $4,500, and Paul Dang of Honolulu won $6,000 from the Main Street video poker machines.
