WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas! This week on the radio we’re talking with Jeff Kutash — from Frank Sinatra to John Travolta, he’s worked with more stars than Sir Isaac Newton. He even worked at the Point After in Waikiki. Then Piilani Tandal, a slot shift manager at the Cal & Main Street Station, tells us how to win more at the slots. Join us Thursday at 9 a.m. and again on Friday at 6:30 p.m. on KKEA 1420am. By the way, soon Kimo’s Vegas will be available via podcast.

YOU GOIN’Vegas dis week? No fo’get bring one towel, one hand fan and one portable air conditioner. Just when they thought it couldn’t get any hotter, it did. Record highs of 115 degrees, 116 degrees, even 117 degrees have been heating up the city. I know what you’re thinking; just go out at night, den … when the temps drop down to a chilly 92. Some locals downtown were said to be mumbling “no, lord, I meant make the tables hot.”

PAI GOW players rarely see the Wild Royal Flush, but the table was hot for Marlo Corrales of Honolulu. He won the $4,850 jackpot at the Main Street Station, Salamat po!

SINCE WE’RE on the subject of Royals … What happens when you get a sequential Diamond Royal Flush on the Double Double Poker Machine at the Cal? Jane Tokumoto (of Honolulu) held the A_, _, Q_, J_, _ and drew the K_, 10_. So in addition to the $1,000 for the Royal Flush she got a $25,000 bonus on her quarter machine! Twenty-six thousand dollars — now das a lotta beef jerky.

WANNA WIN a million bucks? Try the 3 Card Poker Tourney at the Hilton in September. And look for the tallest security officer in Vegas and say howzit to Rich Jones, who played with the San Antonio Spurs and New Jersey Nets.

NOHENANI writes to say that ex-SOS-er Jun Polistico has a great show Thursday-Monday at the Fitz. A one drink minimum gets you in and he does great impersonations. Her favorite restaurant is the Steakhouse on the same floor.

AUNTY JO says let’s Jive @65 in 2005. The Castle High Class of 1958 celebrates their 65th b’day together at the Cal Oct. 3.
