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

RAN INTO Frannie Kirk (Outrigger Entertainment) and she said The Society of Seven is now doing one show a day on Fridays and Saturdays at the Gold Coast with Hawaii’s favorite American Idol Jasmine Trias ...

THE LAS VEGAS Convention and Visitors Authority new study says that gamblers are spending less this year compared to last (and even the year before). About $12 less on shows, $25 less per room night, $63 less on food and drink, $20 less on shopping and about $50 less in the casino - 83 percent of the people who visited Vegas visited the casinos, and the players’ gambling budget was $481.57.

http://WWW.KIMOSVEGAS.COM TIP: Some hotels are compensating for deeply discounted rooms by charging a “resort fee.” The nightly surcharge can add up to 30 percent per night to your bill. After making your reservations, a quick call to the front desk will verify if you qualify for the special fleeced rate.

THE CHEAP TICKET turf war began when Vegas Tix 4Less opened shop in front of the Showcase mall, which Tix 4 Tonight calls home.
