WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!
OUT WITH THE OLD and in with the new ... Rumor has it that “The Girls Next Door” have been replaced by Miss January, Playmate Dasha Astafieva. Seen by her side during last week’s autograph session for the 55th anniversary edition of Playboy magazine at the Palms was head bunny hunter Hugh Hefner ... Is the octogenarian slowing down, going from three live-in girlfriends to one?
GUYS WERE STANDING in line to play with Carmen Elektra when she donned a bunny outfit to deal blackjack at the Playboy Club. Would you take marriage advice from a woman who was married for nine days to NBA All Star Dennis Rodman? Her advice: “Don’t get married in Vegas. Don’t get married at the drive-through in Vegas.”
AT THE FINALE of Mamma Mia! were Ron and Nancy Sommer - regular, everyday folks except they’ve spent more than $14,000 to see the show 74 times! Shhhh, don’t tell them it’s available on DVD.
PREVIEW PERFORMANCES of the Lion King (Mamma Mia!‘s replacement) start April 22 and the show goes live (meaning full price) May 9. Tickets start at $53 and scale up to $168.50, and go on sale Feb 28 at http://www.MandalayBay.com. How long will the Mandalay Bay continue to host Disney’s biggest show and the AVN the Adult Video Entertainment Expo?
SEVEN OUT ... The Ritz-Carlton at Lake Las Vegas has filed for bankruptcy protection.
OPENED IN FEBRUARY 1995, The Joint at the Hard Rock is closing ... but not for long. Motley Crew, complete with home-video star drummer Tommy Lee, will be playing the last notes in the room Feb. 6 and 7. When it reopens in April, the Joint will be fatter ... about twice the size of the old roach, and will include seven VIP suites and more than 700 stadium-style seats.
WANNA SEE Boyz II Men, Michael McDonald, Willie Nelson, LeeAnn Rimes, Blondie and Chicago for free? Buffalo Bill’s Resort and Casino, about 50 miles away from the Strip, is giving away free tickets to these shows and more ... Get the link at http://www.KimosVegas.com.
IT’S NOT QUITE a sport (yet), but you can drink beer and win $50,000, just like Ron Hamilton and Michael Popielarsky did at the World Series of Beer Pong. No need rush ... You’ve got an entire year to practice for the next World Series. To play “Beer Pong,” opponents face each other at a 14-foot table that has cups filled with beer lined up like bowling pins. The objective is to bounce a ping pong ball into all of the other team’s cups, forcing them to drink the beer. The last team standing ... the last team with beer in their cup(s) ... wins. I know a few guys who think it should be the other way around (the winner gets to drink the beer), but with more than 400 teams, it’d be tough to make it to the semis.

DID YOU HEAR about the house in Las Vegas that sold for $35,000? The home’s original price was around $106K in 2001. The bank’s cash-in-advance, as-is deal sold quicker than you could say, “But it’s a fixer-upper.”
