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

IF THE NAMES Prada, Christian Dior, Bulgari, Carolina Herrera, Hermes, Roberto Cavalli, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels,Versace, Louis Vuitton and TIFFANY & CO. get your pulse rising and your hand reaching for your purse ... you’ll be happy to know that these stores and more will be opening in the new Crystals in the CityCenter. And when you need some sustenance to rejuvenate that tired shopping gene, check out Eva Longoria Parker’s Beso.

NBA COMMISH David Stern said the league is not adding or relocating any teams because there is no NBA-quality arena in Las Vegas: “It’s more about the economy than the arena, the idea of expansion, of building arenas. It’s waiting to see if the economy has bottomed out, what it’s going to do.” The NBA Summer League, however, is a permanent fixture in the Vegas landscape.

The Lion King

WHEN SHOPPING for a Vegas show, The Lion King at Mandalay Bay may not stand out as a primary choice in the concrete jungle of Sin City. But if you haven’t seen it before, this is a faithful reproduction of its East Coast older brother (unlike other Broadway shows that have migrated to the desert). The Disney musical is performed unabridged - a full two hours and 20 minutes - including a 15-minute lua break. It’s even been Vegasized with a larger cast than the original (just because it’s Vegas). It’s a guaranteed good-see, even without the keiki ...

ELVIS LEFT the planet 32 years ago next month, but this December Cirque du Soleil will launch its yet-to-be-titled tribute to the King. The centerpiece of CityCenter’s entertainment will be in the Aria Resort and Casino. Details are scarce at the moment, but Victor Paterson (director) and Armand Thomas (director of creation) promise the show will be in Elvis’s image - powerful, sexy, whimsical and unique. If it’s anything like Cirque du Soleil’s Beatles Love,we won’t be seeing any Elvis impersonators. Get the link to check out the videos, join the Cirque Club and enter to win a VIP Cirque experience, tickets to all seven shows, limo, hotel (four nights at the MGM and four at Bellagio), spa treatments, dinners, photos with the cast and more at m/en/shows/elvis/show.aspx

ROBYN WROTE to remind us of the not-so-pono House Bill 1495 that no longer allows Hawaii residents to deduct gambling losses from their winnings on their Hawaii state income taxes ...
