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

THE NOROVIRUS is back in Vegas and was found at the Monte Carlo after numerous guests became ill a couple of weeks ago. By the way, Clark County Health officials say this is a limited outbreak.

ACCORDING TO the New York Times, some of the pricier libations in Sin City are the $69 Ultimate Margarita at N9NE Steakhouse and the $275 Martini at MGM‘s Seablue (it comes with Beluga caviar). But the king of the money-is-no-object hill is the after-dinner drink “High Limit Kir Royale” at the MGM Grand’s Teatro Euro Bar made with Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne and 140-year-old Cognac for $2,200 (and I thought a $10 Diet Coke was expensive).

PARTY WITH Paris Hilton ... she’s the celebrity host of the New Year’s Eve party at Tao in the Venetian. Whatzit cost to party with a Paris? Less than the martini at Seablue ... only $200. For tickets and more details, visit THURSDAY AT 9 a.m. on Sports Radio 1420, Michael Konik talks about the lengths gamblers will go to win a wager like “The Man With The $100,000 Breasts” and the story of “The 17 Million Dollar Man” (both stories are true). Then we chat with Blair Rodman, whose new book Kill Phil can teach you in one hour how to win more poker tournaments and home games. Miss a show? No worries, listen online at

JOHN CURTAS, restaurant critic for Nevada Public Radio, says the Mandalay Bay‘s Fleur de Lys is the best Las Vegas restaurant of 2005, and the best dessert is the Chocolate-Nutella Beignets with Creme Anglais from the SW Steakhouse in the Wynn Las Vegas. Never met a radio guy who didn’t like free food - in fact, the fringe benefits are so good that even Bruce Willis will play (a late-night) DJ in his new movie.

LOOKING FOR a different Vegas New Year’s experience? Try the Philharmonic Viennese Ball at the Ritz Carlton in Lake Las Vegas. The fun begins with an afternoon jewelry show (where did I put my black Amex card?), then cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by a three course gourmet cuisine and a fireworks show above the lake. Before jewelry shopping, the weekend will set you back $1,200.

WHAT DOES it feel like to win BIG money? Ask the players at the Fremont - Ann Yutsuda of Honolulu or Jane Kawasaki of Kapaa both won $10,000, and Laurel Tanigawa of Lihue won $14,800 on a $1 Black Gold, and George Kurozawa of Captain Cook won $25,000 on a $5 machine.

VISIT and get more Kimo’s Vegas in MidWeek the Weekend and with Brickwood Galuteria Friday morning at 7:20 on Hawaiian105 KINE and in Oceanic Cable’s Around Hawaii.
