WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!
THE FOLKS who line the Strip distributing cards advertising escorts are called “Slappers” because they slap the cards against each other to attract your attention. Imagine Jayde Nicole’s surprise when it was brought to her attention that they were slapping cards with her picture from Playboy, offering her as a full-service escort. In return, the escort service got slapped with a cease-and-desist notice faster than you can say “Playboy Playmate of the Year.” Tiger Woods wannabes best remember the words of my great-grandfather Confucius Akane, who said, “If it’s too good to be true, it isn’t real Jayde.”
MR. VEGAS, entertainer Wayne Newton, is hosting the Miss Playboy Club Model Search Sunday at the Playboy Club. It costs a Jackson for dudes, but ladies are cover-free each month.

THERE’S STILL room to join Nove Italiano’s executive chef Geno Bernardo at noon this Saturday for an intimate five-course cooking class. On the menu: Zuppa di Pesce, Caprese Salad, Milanese-style East Coast Fluke, Braised Kobe Short Ribs and Chocolate Ganache.

COCKFIGHTING is illegal in the U.S., Brazil and most of Europe, but every Wednesday the feathers fly at chef Richard Sandoval’s Tacos & Tequila in the Luxor. The “Cock-a-Doodle Duel” pits two slightly inebriated (it’s more fun that way) humans in chicken suits against each other. Balloons are tied to each rooster’s claws ... er ... feet, and the last cock with air in his latex wins bragging rights and a $25 tab. This might be more fun with hens in the house. Let the pecking begin.
