WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas… The Players Edge!?

The bikini celebrates its 62nd birthday on July 5, but the famous LA Sunset Tan is intro-ing its2008 Swimwear Collection this weekend at the Palms Pool. On hand for the unveiling is the entire cast of E!‘s reality show, Sunset Tan, including the Ollie Girls, Devin Haman and Jeff Bozz, Janelle Perry, and Erin Tietsort. While it’s appealing to the eye, there’s something oxymoronic about a pink camouflage bikini.

Congrats to Hilo Boy BJ Penn for defending his UFC Lightweight title against Sean Sherk in a third-round TKO in front of a sold-out crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas last week. As UFC President Dana White said, “It’s an exciting, rare moment when you get to see two of the best fighters in the world face off and find out who the best is ... It doesn’t suck when they hate each other, either.”

A $500,000 Bingo game…That’s what happened when Boyd’s Suncoast Casino, Gold Coast Casino and Sam’s Town Casino linked together for Mega Bingo. More than 40 winners split $500,000, and Sam’s Town awarded Teru Pritchard of California the $100,000 coverall jackpot.

To stimulate their economy, some Vegas hotels are offering a free 25 percent slot play bonus (up to $2,500) if you cash your stimulus or tax refund check at the casinos cage… call your favorite casino for more details.

Last weekend more than 40 wounded members of the armed services were the guests of billion-aire Venetian and Palazzo casino owner Sheldon Adleson. “These are our nation’s real heroes,” he said. “and on Memorial Day it is important for all of us to remember the sacrifices they and their families are making every day, and the sacrifices many have made in the past for our country. This is our way of recognizing their tremendous contributions.” In addition to a suite at the Venetian, the soldiers flew on Adelson’s private 747 plane with dinner prepared by his private chef Wolfgang Puck, and then saw several shows.

Mary Rivera missed her flight at McCarran International, but she happily paid the airline’s ticket change fee out of her $391,979.97 winnings from the airport’s 25-cent Wheel of Fortune Machine.

Actress Gabrielle Union (Ugly Betty, Bring It On, Bad Boys II) and one of People magazine’s “100 Most Beautiful People,” was guest host of TAO Las Vegas’ second anniversary last weekend.

Next week at Harrah’s, the world’s most skilled flair bartenders compete in the fourth annual international bartending competition, the Ultimate Flair Bartending Championship. Qualifying starts June 2, with the finals on Friday at Carnival Court. Back to defend their titles are last year’s pro division champ Christian Delpech and women’s champ Ati Grinspun. The grand prize winner earns $25,000.

After 32 years, Humpy Wheeler is retiring as the president of Loew’s Motor Speedway. As a going away present, he gave each of the drivers an autographed $50 bill before their qualifying runs. Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kyle Bush both gave him da stink eye (like a Hawaii dice player when someone buys in with a Grant), both declined the money, saying fifties are unlucky.

If you haven’t seen the Rio’s Masquerade Show in the Sky, it’s back with all-new costumes, allnew choreography and an all-new (more adult) attitude.
