Love Las Vegas with Vacations Hawaii!


I’D RATHER HEAR THE HARD, COAT TRUTH THAN YOU SUGARCOAT THING. YEAH, THAT WOULD BE IT. TAIZO: WORDS TO LIVE BY. THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF OUR SHOW WITH OUR MAN ON STREET QUESTIONS. IF YOU’RE IN THE OTHER ROOM, COME BE A PART OF THIS. WE LOVE VACATIONS HAWAII. WE LOVE HEADING TO VEGAS. AND I’M STOKED BECAUSE I’M JOINED BY KEVIN KANESHIRO. I WANT TO SAY ALOHA TO GUIDO METZGER, WHO IS THE BOYD GAMING DIRECTOR OF GAMING OPERATIONS. AND, SIR, I’M SO STOKED YOU’RE HERE. LAST TIME YOU WERE HELPING TRINI AND I AT THE CAL. WINNING A LOT. YOU GUYS HAVE A LOT OF WINNERS. IT’S BEEN A HOT YEAR. SO MANY MILLION DOLLAR WINNERS IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS. JUST LAST WEEKEND, $301,000 THAT WAS RONALD NICHOLS. I LOVE THIS. HE WAS PLAYING ON A QUARTER MACHINE. 6 MAX BETS. STHAT’S SIX QUARTERS AND WALKING AWAY WITH $301,000. WHEN YOU WALK PAST THE QUARTER MACHINES AND SAY, DOES ANYONE WIN? YES, THEY DO. TAIZO: AND SPEAKING OF THAT, TALK ABOUT NOT ONLY IN THE CAL, BUT THE FREMONT, MAIN STREET WHAT’S GOING ON? THERE’S SO MUCH FUN HAPPENING. BUT IT’S STARTING TO WRAP UP, RIGHT? YES, YES. WE’VE HAD A TREMENDOUS YEAR WITH HAWAIIAN GUESTS COMING OVER THERE AND WINNING A LOT OF MONEY. IT’S BEEN GOOD. TAIZO: WHEN WHEN TALK — YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THE GREAT CRAPS TABLE YOU HAVE. WHEN IT COMES TO PLAYING CRAPS, EVERYBODY HEADS TO THE CAL. THERE’S BEEN SOME THING WITH CRAP WINNERS. WHAT’S HAPPENING? AT THE FREMONT, 24TH TO THE 27TH OF NOVEMBER, WE HAVE OUR SHARPSHOOTER TOURNAMENT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. THAT’S THE LONGEST ROLLS, MAKE IT INTO THE FINAL ROUND, 10,000-DOLLAR PRIZE. FIRST PLACE. FREE ENTRY. TAIZO: IT’S ALMOST LIKE A MYTHICAL THING IN HAWAI’I, THE GOLDEN ARM. IF ANYBODY DOESN’T KNOW WHAT IT IS, WHAT IS THE GOLDEN ARM? IT WAS SET BACK IN 1989 BY STANDLY, WHO THREW 3:18, AN INCREDIBLE ROLE. I WAS DEALING AT THAT TIME. TAIZO: THAT’S AMAZING. WHEN IT HAPPENED. SINCE THEN WE’VE HAD 27 YEARS NOW GOLDEN ARM TOURNAMENTS. WE HAVE ONE COMING UP APRIL 23RD TO 27, AND $25,000 GRAND PRIZE. 10,000. TAIZO: CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE EXCITEMENT? THE GOLDEN ARM, THE CAL’S SO PROUD TO HAVE THAT. WHEN YOU HAVE PEOPLE IN HAWAI’I — AND BY WAY I’M GOING TO BE UP IN APRIL. WHAT’S IT LIKE TO SEE PEOPLE GET EXCITED? WE’VE GOT A BIG TROPHY CASE THERE. WE’VE GOT A CAST OF STANLEY’S ARM AND THE DICE HE ROLLED THERE. WE’VE GOT OVER THREE HUNDRED GOLDEN ARM MEMBERS. WE INVITE THEM ALL OUT. WE’VE GOT A BIG TURNOUT. WE USUALLY PUT EIGHT TO TEN CRAP TABLES ON THE FLOOR WHERE UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE — NORMALLY OPEN TO THE FLOOR. YOU MIGHT WIN. TAIZO: I KNOW. I WAS HOT LAST TIME. TALKING ABOUT THE CAL, THE RENOVATIONS. RON MIZUTANI IS HEADING BACK. IT’S BEEN A BUSY PAST FEW MONTHS. NEW LOBBY. I HAD FRIENDS THAT WENT LAST WEEK, AND WTF. THIS PLACE LOOKS GREAT. TAIZO: IT’S LIKE A WHOLE NEW HOTEL. THE BUDDHA IS STILL THERE. MY FAVORITE THING, THE JEWEL OF THE CROWN WITH ALL THE U.H. GAMES PLAYED ON THE BIG SCREENS, THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE CALIFORNIA HOTEL TO WATCH YOUR U.H. SPORTING EVENTS. TAIZO: THE GOOD, DRINKS AND LOCATION. THE EXCITEMENT WAS GREAT. I WAS THERE WHEN THEY UPSET AIR FORCE. IT WAS AMAZING. AND THE HOE HOLO HOLO HOLO BAR AROUND THE CORNER. WE WERE TALKING, BRUNO MARS MIGHT NOT BE COMING TO HAWAI’I BUT HE’S IN VEGAS. THERE’S ALL KINDS OF SHOWS HAPPENING. I’M GOING CHRONOLOGICAL. WHO HASN’T SEEN A BOB NEWHART SHOW? HE WAS A COMEDIAN. RIGHT DOWN THE CAL, I’M BE THERE THIS WEEKEND. NOVEMBER 19TH.
