Leion and a Blue Man

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

HAWAIIAN 105 KINE morning guy Billy V. took his wife Sawako and son Leion to see the Blue Man Group (at the Venetian) on their recent Vegas vacation ... one of his son’s favorite parts of the show was watching one blue guy toss a bunch of marshmallows across the stage into the another blue guy’s open mouth.

$2.50 was the biggest payout in the newest casino in Las Vegas. Last Tuesday, Station Casinos opened its unnamed trailer casino ... a 40-by-10-foot trailer with 16 slot machines, a casino floor manager and a porta-toilet outside. There was lotsa parking on the vacant 26-acre lot that used to be The Castaways. State law requires a casino to be open for eight hours, once every two hours, to keep its gaming license and grandfathered zoning rights from expiring.

TONY DANZA fans ... your last chance to see The Producers at Paris Las Vegas is Feb. 9. The show is joining other Broadway shows that didn’t stand the test of time in the desert including Avenue Q, Hairspray, We Will Rock You and Forever Plaid.
