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. Plenty of time for you to save some $$$ - the top ticket is $1,250 (if you can find one) ... so that’s why they call him the Golden Boy!
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).

NORM CLARKE, the man about town and super gossip columnist for the Las Vegas Review Journal, is our guest on Sports Radio 1420 Thursday at 9 a.m. ... we talk about how much Tao paid Paris Hilton to show up for one night, who the worst tippers are and more inside scoops den one plate lunch from Tsukenjo’s.
