The Amazing Johnathan is smokin’
at 10 p.m. nightly except Thursday
the Sahara Congo Room

IT SEEMS like there’s a new club opening up every week in Las Vegas … Vivid The Night Club at the Venetian uses state-of-the-art technology to entertain your eyes while the music pounds your ears. If the The Amazing Johnathan is smokin’ Thursday the Sahara live ladies in the club are not enough for you, check out the three dimensional holographic projections of … dancing girls (another first for Vegas). And please seek professional help when you come home.

LAST WEEK we mentioned that the Cal added four guys to the “Golden Arm Hall of Fame” (people who hold the dice for longer than an hour). Since then, Andrew from Hilo and Earl from Waipahu held the dice for 1 hour and 36 minutes, and Lester from Paauilo held on for 64 minutes. If you know one of these guys … a few of us want to tag along on their next trip!

David Copperfield in “An Intimate Evening
of Grand Illusion” at the MGM Grand
Hollywood Theater

CLOSE, PERSONAL friends David Copperfield & The Amazing Johnathan are in the news … Copperfield returns to the MGM from May through September and AJ moves to the Sahara’s Congo Room. David Copperfield’s favorite local entertainer: “Kaneala” Danny Kaleikini! ONLY IN Vegas can you swim and play blackjack at the same time … check out the main pool at the Tropicana for Swim-Up Blackjack. Better wear board shorts so the dealer doesn’t ask if you’re happy to see her — in her bikini.

GEORGE CLINTON & Parliament tear the roof off the House of Blues May 11. Nelly, TI & Fat Joe at the Aladdin Theater May 21, and the Go Gos play the Mandalay Bay Beach May 29.

EACH YEAR the readers and staff of the Las Vegas Review Journal vote on the Best (and Worst) that Vegas has to offer … the worst buffet: Circus, Circus … Best Mall: Fashion Show … Best Sports Bar: Blondies Sports Bar & Grill with 35 plasma and big screen TVs throughout, a VIP Room (complete with plasma, surround sound and Playstation) and a lanai! Go to for the complete scoop.

WYNN LAS Vegas hired about 1,500 employees from the MGM-Mirage. So why are the MGM execs so happy? They were relieved because they were expecting 5,000 resignations!

STARTING NEXT week, look for new Kimo’s Vegas twice a week … in MidWeek and MidWeek The Weekend!
