Beyoncé: the newest Vegas diva?

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

HER FRIENDS call her “B,” and she’s negotiating to be the next Vegas diva.

Wynn Las Vegas officials confirm that they liked it and wanna put a ring on Beyoncé for an exclusive long-term headliner gig that will pay the single lady a rumored $750K per night.

IN AMERICA, everyone is innocent until proven guilty, but when you smoke cigars, gamble and party with Michael Jordan in Vegas, you’re not going to be mistaken for the pope. The number of women claiming to have had an affair with golf’s new bad boy is increasing like a Fibonacci sequence (0,1,1,2,3,5,8 etc).

CONGRATS TO the Society of Seven and Jasmine Trias on their Friday, Saturday and Sunday indefinite run at the Gold Coast casino.


LAS VEGAS IS ranked 92nd on the Forbes magazine list of cities that’ll give you the most bang for the buck (sorry, not the Tiger Woods kine). The ratings are based on an algorithm that considers housing affordability, travel time, real estate taxes, foreclosures and other statistics. Honolulu finished 54th, but the place that made the list go boom was Omaha-Council Bluffs ... Obviously snow was not a major consideration in the list maker’s math.

OMAHA ALSO IS home of the longest documented streak of bad luck a gambler wouldn’t wish upon his worst enemy. After growing the family business to revenues of $300 million a year, Terrence Watanabe later sold Oriental Trading Company. In one year (2007) the entrepreneur lost $112 million! That’s more money than the president asked his entire cabinet to cut back in April. Get the link to theWall Street Journal story that details his civil suit against Caesars Palace and Rio at

CAESARS HAS just opened its first online casino,, but don’t bother trying to check it out. Because online gaming is currently illegal, IP addresses from U.S. residents get redirected to the emperor’s traditional land-based casinos.

IT’S NOT the North Pole, but it is 283,000 square feet of shopping bliss. The Forum Shops at Caesars will be open regular business hours on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Jane Oda of Wahiawa hit it big at the Cal

AN $8.5 BILLION estate for $149 ... We may never know what it feels like to have billions, but right now that’s the introductory rate at CityCenter’s Vdara and it comes with a $75 resort credit.

GIVE THE “Gift of Vegas” ... Harrah’s is offering gift cards, redeemable at any of its hotels, including Aria, Bellagio, Vdara and Mandalay Bay. Vegas.Com is offering gift cards at Costco, where $79.99 gets you a $100 card.

THE VENETIAN is offering its Club Grazie Players Club members free suites, free play (based on your level) and free tickets to Jersey Boys.

VEGAS FRIENDS SAY, “It’s Beginning To Feel A Lot Like Christmas” ... with overnight lows in the 30s.

SOME LUCKY ... At the Cal, Jane Oda of Wahiawa hit jackpots totaling $11,780.

A DEPARTMENT of Defense survey of its peeps says Las Vegas is the third-most sought-after location for recreation. Could the bankrupt Fontainebleau be on the government’s radar?

DID YOU KNOW ... the tallest Christmas tree in America is found at the M Resort in Las Vegas?
