WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas… The Players Edge!
SEVEN OUT ... Lance Burton exits the Monte Carlo. The Master Magician has been a headliner in a theater named after him since the hotel opened 14 years ago. He’ll probably be performing elsewhere on The Strip, but you can check him out before the final curtain falls on Sept. 4.
GUYS CAN score major points for $425 and a trip to Vegas. Dina Ousley, the Emmy-winning makeup artist, brings her Dinair air-brush makeup system known as the secret weapon of A-list celebs to Salon Bellagio. You can get an expert lesson, supplies and a compressor in white pearl, red sparkle or black onyx - just remember not to mix your epoxy paint with the wife’s makeup.
OR YOU’LL have to “make up” for it with a trip to Vegas during Fashion Week when MAGIC, the annual fashion trade show, is going on. The show is for members of the trade only, but stores in the malls have plenty of sales to celebrate and showcase the latest designs. But once she discovers that the 2010 PGA Fall Expo is happening at the same time (Aug. 16 to 18) you may be back on the couch.
THE LAS VEGAS Sock Market (that’s no typo) is a store dedicated to hosiery. Featuring a large variety of socks for men, women and children, there are socks for everyday use, specialty, professional, exercise, animal prints and team logos. Get your favorite podophile (not to be confused with the iPod kine) some “preferred socks”, “blue chip socks” or even “sock certificates” at the Shoppes in Mandalay Bay.
KIMO’S VEGAS TIP: It’s Spa Week (until April 18) and the Spa’s in the brand new Aria and Vdara are offering $50 treatments. That’s a savings of $140 on the Thai Poultice Massage and $125 on the Thai Clay Aromatherapy Wrap.

THE THINGS we do for love ... over at Treasure Island, billionaire owner Phil Ruffin let his wife (Miss Ukraine 2001) spec the remodel of the hotel’s spa. And $3 million later, he says, “It was her vision. We spent way too much money on it, but it’s very pretty.”
TIMES ARE tough all over… In ‘09, Steve Wynn, the guy with his name on the hotel, made, $8.39 million - down from the $8.45 million he made the year before. His divorce from Elaine Wynn is reportedly the most expensive to date, but he told the Las Vegas Weekly, “Let’s put it this way. Elaine is a very wealthy woman. And no one deserves it more, and no one will use the wealth more intelligently, more compassionately than she will. She has a very definite attitude toward money that it should go to charity and to her grandchildren.”
ABOUT 200 people auditioned for The Apprentice at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas last week…
