WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!
WHY DID THE CASINO hosts stand in line? Because that’s the only way they could get Hannah Montana tickets for their clients. Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley’s dad, wanted kids and parents to have an equal shot at buying tickets for her upcoming Vegas concert. So they put a stipulation known as a rider in the contract that said all the tickets had to be sold through authorized outlets with a maximum of four per person - and absolutely no tickets could be held for high rollers! The three concerts sold out minutes after going on sale.
IMAGINE YOU and three friends aboard Steve Wynn’s private jet on your way to a three-day retreat at a private villa in his hotel. Then enjoy 18 holes with golf architect Tom Fazio at the Wynn Golf Course followed by a meal with Steve and
Elaine Wynn prepared by Chef Alex Stratta at his five-star eatery ALEX in the Wynn. After your meal, get ready for your walk-on role in Le Rêve, the aquatic show at the hotel. But before you leave, select some bling at Wynn & Company Jewelers with your $150,000 credit, and try out your new Ferrari 599 before it’s crated and sent to your home. A dream for most of us ... but if you’ve got $1,250,000, this one-of-a-kind vacation is pure reality. Get the complete details on how you can own this limited-edition experience at www.KimosVegas.com - and don’t hesitate to call me if you need some company!

BUDDY, CAN YOU SPARE a few hundred million? The $3 billion Cosmopolitan is in deep kim chee. Bruce Eichner, the New York and Florida condo developer, owns 100 percent of the project and is looking to raise an additional $400 million because of rising construction costs and declining real estate values.
ACTOR NICOLAS CAGE has sold one of his estates to one of the guys whose name you see on all those Vegas gas stations: Jerry “Terrible Herbst” paid $35 million for the Newport Beach house. The sale set a record as the single-most-expensive residential sale in the country. The $10 million in profit was not the primary motivation for the sale ... in October, Cage came home to find a naked guy in his kitchen.
ONE OF THE newest innovations on the Vegas scene is the Sports Book kiosk. Picture a machine that allows you to wager on your favorite sporting event or team without visiting the casino sports book. Now in limited tests, smaller casinos, gas stations, convenience stores and bar owners can’t wait to install the new ATM-like machines.
THE SLOTS at the Main Street station were lucky for Daniel Nelson of Hilo ($2,700), Sonia Bungcayao of Waipahu ($3,600) and Leslie Nakagawa of Honolulu, who won $13,500!
