Mariah Carey: a Disney World fan
Mariah Carey: a Disney World fan

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

IN A RECENT interview, Mariah Carey said she prefers Disney World over Las Vegas. That’s because whenever she’s in Sin City she’s a working girl - on a full RFB comp and a six digit paycheck.

KEVIN FEDERLINE celebrated his 30th birthday with a bash at Pure Nightclub in Caesars Palace with an entourage of 20 friends and family. Britney, beware, a cash call may be imminent ... KFed was quoted as saying, “I lost my voice at the craps tables and I lost all my money.”

THE LAS VEGAS Review Journal‘s 27th annual Best of Las Vegas poll is out, and more than 8,000 votes were counted to determine this year’s list of the city’s best and worst. Some of the winners are Best Burger: In & Out Burger; The Most Overrated Restaurant (and the second-best steakhouse - is that an oxy-moron?): Ruth’s Chris; Best Club: Pure; Best Mall: Fashion Show; and the Best Outlet Store: Coach ... get the link for the complete list at

HAVE YOU EVER made a wish and then tossed a coin into a fountain? Have you ever wondered what happens to all those coins? The Mirage, Bellagio, New York New York, Mandalay Bay and Luxor donate the coins they collect, then the charities spend around 50 percent of the donation cleaning the coins. At the TI (Pirates Cove) and Circus Circus Adventure Dome, the coins are all destroyed because they are too damaged when they are retrieved ... something to think about the next time you make a wish.

The Bellagio
The Bellagio will open a new upscale Japanese restaurant this summer

IN LAS VEGAS, it’s called a dining experience ... opening this summer, a new upscale Japanese restaurant in the Bellagio called Yellowtail Sushi featuring authentic traditional and modern Japanese cuisine. In addition to sushi, sashimi, tempura and hand rolls, try the Chef Akira Black’s “Omakase menu,” a multi-course sampler.

MILLION-DOLLAR DIGS ... when Steve Wynn’s Encore opens in December, it’ll be the first Vegas property with an average price tag of more than $1 million per room.

$500,000 ... that’s how much the MIT blackjack team would win on a good weekend. 21, the movie based on the book about the team, was shot at many different locations in Vegas including the Ghostbar, Hard Rock and Planet Hollywood.

MAYOR OSCAR GOODMAN said the new sports arena originally planned for Downtown may be built at a site closer to the Stratosphere. Meanwhile, Harrah’s has plans to build its own stadium behind Paris and Bally’s. Craps players call this as a “come bet” because so far no pro team calls Las Vegas home.

IT’S YOUR LAST chance to check out The Society of Seven with Lani Misalucha and Martin Nievera before they check out of the Flamingo April 13. The band will go on tour and be back (in a new home) on the Strip in September.

JULIA SIOBAL of Pahoa won $2,303, Ethel Sunada of Mililani won $3,400, and Clarence Marathon of Waipahu won $4,000 from the Cal’s video poker machines.

APOLOGIES TO Kevin Lye, M.D., for changing his name and sending him to Castle High School here a couple of weeks ago ...
