THE GOLDEN BOY Oscar De La Hoya returns to the ring to challenge World Boxing Council super welterweight champion Ricardo “El Matador” Mayorga May 6 at the MGM Grand.

WHERE DO the Irish go to celebrate St. Patty’s in Vegas? Fado’s Irish Pub in Henderson; Jack’s Irish Pub at the Palace Station; J.C. Wooloughan’s Irish Pub on Rampart; Lally’s on Rancho; McMullan’s Iris Pub on Tropicana; The Tilted Kilt at the Rio; and leprechauns have been known to frequent Fitzgerald’s downtown. Maybe someday Murphy’s will open an annex in Vegas?

THE LAS VEGAS Clark County School District was recently in town recruiting teachers to move to Vegas (no doubt they heard how fond we are of their city). Didja know they just signed their superintendent to an annual contract for $290,000? That’s the kind of kala college deans make ... happy to see them put our money to good use!
