WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas … The Player’s Edge!
THE HOLLYWOOD Chamber of Commerce is awarding Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino headliners Penn & Teller the 2,494th star on the Walk of Fame. Look for it at 7003 Hollywood Blvd. just a few steps from Houdini’s star. The magical duo was also awarded “Magicians of the Year” from The Magic Castle, and voted the Best Magicians of Las Vegas. Now all we need is for Penn to win Donald Trump’s All Star Celebrity Apprentice.
OTHER BEST OF Las Vegas poll winners include … Terry Fator, Best All Around Performer; Caesars Palace won Best Buffet for its new Bacchanal Buffet and Best Strip Hotel. Readers say The D had the best paying slots and the best crap tables.
SOMEONE ASKED if I’ve ever heard of the Erotic Museum in Vegas … Of course, I’m a self-proclaimed expert on the subject. Not eroticism or museums, but the city of Las Vegas … Where else could you go to a BDSM Prom (April 27)? Bring your leather, latex, fetish or rope, and the only rule is your kinky fashion must be street legal (that’s a lotta leeway in Vegas). Can you imagine the look on the TSA inspector’s face when he spocks a suitcase packed for this ball?
IF YOUR TASTES follow a more traditional path, try “The Power of Love Gala.” It’s a fundraiser for Keep Memory Alive, the fundraising arm of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. This year’s guests of honor are Quincy Jones and Sir Michael Cain … Celebrity chow masters Gordon Ramsey and Wolfgang Puck will be making the grindz.
HAWAIIAN105 KINE is giving away a Vacations Hawaii Las Vegas package for two every weekday. Listen to the station for complete details or visit its website at Hawaiian105.com.
WHAT ARE THE ODDS … Last week in Paris Las Vegas, the Wheel of Fortune slot hit for $1.7 million, and the very next day the Grease machine hit for $1.4 million.
CLOSET SANTAS, now is the time to plan your outing for Dec 7. Join 10,000 other like-minded individuals as they help raise funds for “Opportunity Village,” as the Great Santa Run returns to Fremont Experience in Downtown Las Vegas. Yes, Virginia, it’s true … This year the Jolly One trades his reindeer and sleigh for a snow-white Lamborghini LP570 … vroom, vroom.
OFFICIALLY A THING of the past … Tabu the club in the MGM Grand has seven’d out.
