WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas … The Player’s Edge!

IF THE SWIMSUIT costs a million bucks, does that make the body it’s on priceless? During the Miss Universe contest, they unveiled an emerald-, diamond- and ruby-encrusted swimsuit that Miss Uni got to wear. Perhaps this suit should be all emerald with envy … Last year’s Victoria Secret Fantasy Bra was half the garment and two-and-a-half times the price. Dumb question for the ladies: What kind of blouse do you wear with that?

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE this in Palolo … The price has dropped, but I’m still not making an offer. The first clue that this property was beyond the Akane means was the equestrian swimming pool! That’s right, even the horses have their own swimming pool … everyone knows that swimming is great for conditioning and post-surgery rehab, but did you know it has similar benefits for horses? In addition to the pool for Mr. Ed, there are two stables and corrals, pastures, a car museum, a zoo, a tennis court, seven guest homes (in addition to the main house) and a terminal complete with your own private jet. The owners of Wayne Newton’s 40-acre Casa de Shenandoah have dropped the price from $70 million to $48 million.

JUST IN TIME for the holidays, you can give the Strip’s biggest tease “Fantasy” to your best bud(s). The 14-month calendar is the gift that keeps on giving with a different dancers wearing nothing but animal-print body paint. It’s available now in Luxor gift shops, the Atrium Showroom and at fantasyluxor.com.

TO SAY MAHALO for your service, from Nov. 12 to 23, veterans and active duty military get two free tickets to Mac King, one of the best shows in Vegas. Just bring your Veteran Identification Card, Disabled American Veterans ID or Common Access Card to Harrah’s Las Vegas Box Office … Mahalo.

GUYS, KEEP THIS in mind when you need to score some significant points with your not so insignificant other … MAMMA MIA! comes back to Las Vegas next spring at The New Tropicana. To date, more than 54 million people have seen the 15-year-old production.

EVER HEAR OF a Champagne-buying contest? At Les Caves du Roy in St. Tropez, Zhen Low beat Winston Fisher with a single evening’s tab of $2.6 million of bubbly. I wonder how much they spent in Pedialyte for the champagne hangover the next day?

MAHALO TO editor in chief Don Chapman for finding this quote: “I like to play blackjack. I’m not addicted to gambling, I’m addicted to sitting in a semi-circle.” -Mitch Hedberg

PAPER OR PLASTIC? Soon you may be receiving the popular supermarket pitch from your boss. Companies such as MGM Resorts International offer employees traditional paper checks, direct deposit, as well as debit cards … All right, no more taking coins to the bank on payday! By the way, last year more than $34.1 billion in wages were paid in plastic.
