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

OVER THE YEARS, Las Vegas has accumulated many nicknames, including Sin City, The Strip, City of Entertainment, City of Lights, Neon City, The Entertainment Capital of the World and, if you include Downtown, Glitter Gulch. But the city may be well on its way to adding another to this lengthy list ... Comeback City, if the rumors about Britney Spears and Michael Jackson come true.

Golden Nugget casino host John Giannos - and there’s still time to call him for the hookup in the $65,000 Scramble at Bears Best Golf Course or the $100,000 Real Deal, Blackjack and Slot Tournament, where $100 gets you a shot at a hundred grand in prize money the weekend of June 6.
