Rod Steward has a gig at The Colosseum Nov. 6-21

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

DO YA THINK I’M SEXY? ... Rod Stewart drops into The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Nov. 6-21. For the first time ever, Stewart will sing all his greatest hits - five decades of music. When asked about the possibility of a Las Vegas residency, he said, “I decided it was time to give it a try, but I thought, ‘first, let’s try two weeks instead of two years, though.’” Preorder the raspy-voiced crooner’s latest album, Fly Me to the Moon ... The Great American Songbook, Volume V, from and get a special password to preorder tickets for The Colosseum shows.

WHEEL OF FORTUNE SLOTS won four awards from the readers of Casino Player magazine including Favorite Progressive game and Favorite Bonus Round and Favorite Video Slot ... Since we started answering the Wheel of Fortune’s call in 1996, those machines have paid lucky winners more than $2.5 billion in jackpots.

FOR THE RECORD, the same readers voted Megabucks their second-favorite progressive slot machine.

THE NEWEST WAX in Madame Tussauds’ menagerie is a likeness of Gwen Stefani. No doubt the $300,000 copy is so realistic you can almost smell her Harajuku perfume.

SOLAR CONVERGENCE is the name of the phenomenon that’s going on now at the Vdara hotel. The heat from the sun is amplified as its reflected off the curved, super-shiny building. Not powerful enough to combust humans, the “death ray” has reportedly melted plastic bags and foam cups.

RIGHT NOW you can do something naughty and nice at the same time ... Buy a calendar featuring the ladies of Luxor’s adult revue FANTASY (coveting) and support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (charity). The 2011 FANTASY Swimsuit Calendar was shot entirely on hotel premises. Get a calendar this month and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Nevada Cancer Institute. Visit for the link to order your own personal copy.

YOU’VE BEEN downtown and to the Strip, but have you checked out Lake Las Vegas and the new Aston MonteLago Village Resort?

Get the kamaaina rate hookup starting at $53 per night, or visit to enter to win a free four-night stay to test-drive the resort in person.

CONGRATS TO Chef Chai Chaowasaree, the new executive chef and designer of the 2011 Hawaiian Airlines ono menus.
