WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas … the Player’s Edge!
PAMELA ANDERSON celebrates her 44th year on the planet at the Chateau Nightclub in Paris. Local (Las Vegas) ladies get in free otherwise, tickets cost $20 for women and $30 for men … Don’tcha just hate double and triple standards?
MAHALO TO the lady who emailed and asked about the deals on discounted rooms for people traveling with pets. Yes, it’s for real. Caesars will give you a better deal on a room at Paris, Bally’s, the Rio, etc. when you travel with your loved one … Sorry, your other half does not qualify as a pet.
I FEEL THE EARTH MOVE … Remember when you used to play with those big, yellow Tonkas? If you were lucky, your yard included a bulldozer and maybe even an excavator. Well, the newest attraction in Las Vegas is putting the “dirty” back in Sin City. Dig This is America’s first heavy equipment playground for kids 14 and over. Just imagine yourself on a 5-acre construction site/obstacle course/theme park moving Mother Earth in 15 tons of heavy metal. Prices start at $210 for the “Mini Dig” one-and-a-half hours in a dozer or excavator and go all the way up to $750. Get the link for complete details at KimosVegas.com.

Transportation to move forward … Is it because a plane is too fast and the bus is too slow?
AN ENGINEERING FIRM’S analysis of the Harmon Hotel, part of CityCenter, says the building probably wouldn’t withstand an earthquake (good thing it’s closed). The fingerpointing among the city, MGM and the contractor Perini has only begun to heat up.
ALSO MAKING THE NEWS is another CityCenter property. MGM executives say guests at the Aira from June 21 to July 4 may have come in contact with high levels of the legionella bacteria, which causes Legionnaires’ disease.
