Welcome to Kimo’s Vegas… The Players Edge!
IF YOU LIKE A BEER with your popcorn and movie, Galaxy Theaters in Las Vegas are the first in the county to offer the combo starting with the premiere of the new Daniel Craig James Bond flick Quantum of Solace. Brewskis are only served to guests 21 and over, and not all movies will feature the beverage.
THE MOVIE also includes the handiwork of Moanalua grad Keone Kim, who used to work at Cirque du Soleil and Le Rev in Vegas.
HOW’S YOU LIKE TO TEST DRIVE A LAMBORGHINI ... in Italy. The Palazo and Travelocity have an online contest for a “Lamborghini Racing Experience in Italy” that includes air, hotel, some Lambo omiyagi and a tour of the factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese. Get the link at http://www.KimosVegas.com.
PARIS HILTON on the Planet Hollywood red carpet for the premiere of her latest movie, Repo the Genetic Opera. Yes, it’s a real movie and not a video (although many believe her tape is better than the movie).
THE STRIP SHOW (no, not that kind of strip show) with the most local boys, “STOMP OUT LOUD,” is set to close at the Planet Hollywood on Jan. 4 (same day as Mamma Mia!). The show’s producers are looking for a smaller venue, until then look for Guillaume Carrera (King Intermediate), Andrew Pang (Kaimuki), Andres Fernandez (Radford) and Ivan Delaforce (Damien).
OPENING IN THE STOMP Theater in March, a new strip show (yes, that kind of strip show) called The Peep Show with 16 dancers, a live band and two as-yet-unnamed TV stars who’ll make the jump from flat screen to burlesque queen.
THIS MAY CHANGE THE HAWAIIAN TRADITION of taking our kids to Vegas to celebrate their admittance to adulthood… Officials are considering lowering the legal gambling age in Nevada from 21 to 18 (the same age that tribal casinos in California and Arizona use). The thinking is that with the economy in the toilet this small adjustment in the gaming rules would create a new customer base and revitalize the casinos. It’ll be up to the legislature to change the law when it convenes in February.
MORE THAN 120,000 PEOPLE travel from 100 countries (including places as far away as the Big Island) for the annual SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Vegas. Every year Sony picks the event’s best cars to win awards, but the big daddy of all the awards is Best of Show. This year’s winner is JR Rocha, whose 2007 Infiniti G37 Coupe will be digitized so we can all drive it in the next Grand Tourismo video game.
THERE’S A NEW LAS VEGAS COCKTAIL called the Obamarama ... first you muddle three pieces of lemon with four blueberries and a couple of spoons of sugar, then add an ounce and a half of blueberry vodka and a half ounce of blue curaco. Shake with ice, strain into a martini glass and top it off with some club soda.
