Hugh Hefner celebrates his 84th birthday with his favorite Playmates at the Playboy Club Saturday

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

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Hugh ... Head bunny hunter and chief Playboy lifestyle prognosticator Hefner’s Huge Awesome ‘80s Birthday Celebration is happening this Saturday at the Playboy Club in the Palms Casino. The octogenarian’s 84th soirée is open to all, and ‘80s attire is encouraged. What do you get a guy who “really” has everything, including a lifetime prescription for Viagra and three live-in girlfriends?

A DEALER at the Sands Macau was the target of a murder-for-hire plot after he cheated the casino out of millions of dollars. At the trial, a witness implicated a Sands VIP host and identified him as a member of organized crime group the Triads. It’s still unclear if this will impact the Nevada-regulated company that also owns the Venetian and Palazzo.

THE NATIONAL Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh is suing two ex-Hard Rock employees for $831,519. That’s how much the insurance company had to pay when the casino caught the count room workers stealing on video surveil-lance. Their plan was simple and stupid: Make two piles of money, give one to the casino and put the other in your pants.

JAY Z blew into Vegas last week after he blew away folks at his Blueprint 3, L.A. show. Hip-hop’s hottest couple partied with 7,000 close friends at TAO, then he and Beyonce retired to the Mint high limit room in the Palms.

A CASINO CHIP or two has passed through our collective possession at one time or another, but most of us have never used the rectangular tiles like we see on TV, or that they use in the movies and high-roller salons. Plaques start at $1,000, but the highest value ever used was $10 million at the London Club in the Aladdin.

HOW MUCH is a ticket for driving too slow on the Las Vegas Strip? That gift from LV Metro will set you back $45.

THE PRICE of the Monorail has gone up! An unlimited one-day pass is $14 and the three-day pass will cost you $30, but the single-ride fare is still five bucks.
