Betsy Russell and Tobin Bell

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

HE LOOKS even more spooky in person ... Spotted at last week’s premiere of Saw V, actor Tobin Bell (Jigsaw). Also at the Planet Hollywood opening were co-stars Meagan Good, Scott Patterson and Betsy Russell.

STEVE WYNN’S ENCORE gets the regulatory green light to host guests. Right now you can be the first to check out that new hotel smell and book a room online anytime after Jan. 11. The grand opening celebration has not been set yet, but the smart money is on Steve’s birthday, Jan. 27. The last time he threw a grand-opening party was for the Wynn Las Vegas at the stroke of midnight on his wife, Elaine’s, birthday, April 28, 2005.

THE SMART MONEY also is saying that Cher is pau at Caesars Palace.


MIKE “BOOGIE” MALIN is well-known among Big Brother watchers. He was a contestant in the second season and the winner of $500,000 in the 2006 BB All Stars. Last weekend witnesses say he was up as much as $250,000 of the Palms Casino Resort’s kala and managed to leave ahead $150,000. The next time you’re in L.A., you may wanna try his popular restaurants, Geisha House and Les Deux.

THE THIRD LARGEST Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) in the country, General Growth Properties, is selling some of its premier Vegas holdings, The Fashion Show, Grand Canal Shoppes and Shoppes at Palazzo. You know what they say: If you have to ask, you can’t afford it ... So I nevah ask.

THE HAWAII POKER CHAMPIONSHIP III is happening Feb. 25-28 at Binion’s Gambling Hall. It’s the only Las Vegas poker tourney open exclusively to Hawaii residents. Get the scoops at

DONNYAND MARIE are so good for business, the Flamingo has signed them to a new multi-year contract (from a multi-month contract) that’ll lock them into performing at the hotel until October 2010.

TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING ... Not only can you stay at Harrah’s Las Vegas or the Imperial Palace for 2 cents on Tuesdays, now the company has added the Flamingo to the two-penny deals. Just visit the hotel’s website and enter the code “PKGF2CT.”

CELEBRATE VETERAN’S DAY at the El Cortez Hotel and Casino Nov. 11 and enjoy free White Castle hamburgers (from noon to 6 p.m.). It’s not as good as a Deluxe from W&M, but they don’t serve them while you’re playing slots or the tables.

THE NATIONAL FINALS RODEO kicks off with the 22nd annual Downtown Hoedown on the Fremont Street Experience Dec. 3 ...

IF YOU LOVE CHOCOLATE more than money, try visiting the world’s largest chocolate fountain at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in the window of the hotel’s pastry shop, Jean-Philippe Patisserie. No need bring tape - it’s exactly 27 feet from floor to ceiling, and 2,100 pounds of chocolate flows at a rate of 120 quarts per minute.

OR TRY THE WORLD’S LARGEST chocolate clock at Payard Patisserie and Bistro in Caesars Palace. The 13-foot clock is designed to look like a giant truffle, it tells time in nine different zones and dispenses free truffles every 15 minutes (or so).

IT SHOULD BE CALLED a whopper, but the “Ultimate Steak” at the Monte Carlo’s new Brand Steakhouse weighs in at 120 ounces. It’s usually ordered for a party of six. Eat one all by yourself (in a half hour or less) and the $267 steak is on the house.
