WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas ... the Player’s Edge!

“DID YOU hear about the bomb threat at last week’s Billboard Music Awards? Ashlee Simpson may perform.” - Ike Barnholtz and Bobby Lee from Mad TV. Seen backstage, Hawaii’s American Idol Jasmine Trias!

THE NO. 1 nightclub/bar according to the editors of Nightclub & Bar Magazine is 115 Bourbon Street Pub in Chicago. The numero uno in Vegas is (No. 13) Camel Bar & Lounge at the Sahara. Congrats to Bo and the crew at Oceans for being voted Hawaii’s ichi bon night spot.

SHOOTERS (yep, shooters) from all over will be gathering in Las Vegas for The World Craps Championships July 22 and 23. While it’s a private tournament, hundreds of the world’s best shooters will be at tables all over town ... for more details, go to

WANNA BE the first to stay at the new Hooters (yep, HOOters) Hotel and Casino? They are taking reservations now for the grand opening on Feb. 13.

JUST GOT this shot of the Conservatory at the Bellagio - the bears are made from florists foam (the green stuff) and covered with carnations. The red stuff is the cranberry bog.

MAX RUBIN is a third generation professional gambler. He’s also a casino comp expert, an accomplished author and television personality. What is the best way to get a comp in the casino? What’s the difference between a VIP host and an executive host? Max makes getting comps as easy as 777 on Kimo’s Vegas Thursday at 9 a.m. on Sports Radio 1420 AM.

CHECK OUT the new Dragon Pit at New York-New York casino. No, it’s not a Bruce Leethemed spa, but a collection of Mini-Baccarat, Pai Gow, 3-card Poker and Sic Bo tables all with a dragon theme, and my favorite quote from the movie Dragon: “The key to Immortality is first living a life worth remembering” - Bruce Lee.

WIN TICKETS to see “V” the Ultimate Variety Show at the Desert Passage just like Eileen Uchida - enter now at

DID YOU know they are opening another ABC store in the Desert Passage?

WHY DO night club DJs have DJ in front of their name, like at the Hard Rock’s Body English - DJ Dig Dug, DJ Vice and DJ Skribble? Maybe it helps them remember what they do. I’ll have to ask Power104-3’s Krazy K (or is it DJ Krazy K) to ‘splain it.

GET MORE Kimo’s Vegas in Wednesday’s MidWeek, online in Oceanic Cable’s Around Hawaii and with Brickwood Galuteria Friday morning at 7:20 on Hawaiian105 KINE.
