WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas… the Players Edge!

Steelers go visit Mickey and that’s a good thing because Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman said he would dress as Britney Spears then sing and dance for an hour on a Vegas street corner if they lost ... whew, close one!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, guys, but Nikki Cox from our favorite TV show (Vegas) is getting married to comedian Jay Mohr (so that’s why they call him Mr. Lucky) from Last Comic Standing.

Everyone’s favorite American Idol judge, Simon Cowell is creating a new talent show for NBC that’ll be looking for the next Las Vegas headliner. Didn’t Wayne Newton do this show already?

“The Duchess of Poker” Annie Duke Takes on the World is a new show on GSN (Oceanic Channel 438). Four amateur players compete against each other to play heads up against Annie. Not a bad deal when you consider that Ashton Kutcher paid her $14,000 for private lessons.

Frank Mungolo invented a new Blackjack twist - find out how he got it into the Vegas casinos Thursday at 9 a.m. on Sports Radio 1420AM. And Ira Sternberg, head of PR and community relations for the Las Vegas Hilton, talks about remodeling the hotel.

What are the odds that your favorite flick will win best picture at the Academy Awards? Best picture nominees are: Munich is 6 to 1, Brokeback Mountain 7/1, Jarhead 7/2, Memories of a Geisha 12/1 and Walk the Line 15/1. But don’t go looking to lay money on your movie ... Vegas sports books can only take wagers on sporting events.

Congrats to everyone at Hawaiian Airlines! The Department of Transportation says of all the airlines, Hawaiian is no ka oi for on-time service, fewest cancellations and best baggage handling.

If you flew into McCarran International Airport last year, smile because you were not alone. The airport says it hosted more than 44 million people (a new record) in 2005.

Guys, if your significant other likes ice cream, check out the Ice Cream Manicure or Ice Cream Pedicure packages at the Salon at Wynn Las Vegas. Expect to part with $220 to $430 for her experience. Ladies looking for metrosexual pampering for your guy will find a $225 package that includes a haircut, hot lather shave, paraffin hands and an ultimate manicure.

Get more Kimo’s Vegas at, in the regular MidWeek, in Oceanic Cables Around Hawaii and with Brickwood Galuteria Friday morning at 7:20 am on Hawaiian105 KINE.
