WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas, The Player’s Edge!
DANCING WITH THE STARS’ Karina Smirnoff celebrated her engagement, hosting “The Ultimate Girls Night Out”(does that mean what I think it does?) with the Chippendales at the Rio. No word on what fiancé Brad Penny (L.A. Dodgers) did to reciprocate.
VEGAS TACKY ... The infamous “strippermobile” was named for the clear plastic cube on wheels that cruised the Strip with girls gyrating on a pole. The owners voluntarily shut down the rolling bikini club when city officials complained that it was a safety hazard because it distracted other drivers.
However, it was resurrected last week in the name of charity, hauling toys, Santa and eight of his best girls, albeit clad in a lot more than ever before.
STRIP TEASE ... The Bon Jovi Live 2011 tour hits the MGM Grand Garden March 19 ... and Boyz II Men are at the Flamingo now through Jan. 9.
LAST WEEK the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas opened its doors for the first time. Located between its high-end cousins the Bellagio and CityCenter, it joins the family of high-end resorts that include Wynn, Encore, Venetian and Palazzo. Over the next few months much will be made of the $3.9 billion resort’s merits and demerits. Much will be said about the difficulty of debt servicing and the meeting of operating expenses for such a grand endeavor in a down economy. Most experts agree that we won’t see another property of this scale being built right now.
FAST FOOD ... The busiest restaurant in the country is the Venetian’s Tao Asian Bistro. They serve 1,500 meals a night!
ALSO AT the Venetian, Madame T goes Gaga. Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta has been forever immortalized at Tussauds Wax Museum in Vegas. As a tribute to her international appeal, her waxness also will be on display in New York, Hollywood, London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
True fans of the artist known for her outrageous videos and even more outrageous costumes will want to check out all eight unique displays.

JACKPOT ... That’s what paleontologists were saying when they discovered a 7-foot-long Columbian Mammoth tusk near North Las Vegas. The ancient tusk belonged to a 14-foot-tall member of the elephant family that has been extinct for more than 12,000 years.
