All Wet in Vegas

Water wars are a fact of life in Sin City, with the desert destination sucking up huge amounts of the wet stuff. The MGM Grand is poised to wring a profit from every drop when it reopens its Wet Republic pool for the 2009 summer season. The 53,000 square feet pool gained quite a reputation last year for putting the VIP in the H2O. The kickoff party is March 28, with bootylicious Kim Kardashian playing hostess, while the actual opening date is April 18. We like the underwater speakers and the white onyx tables at poolside, where dancers shake it like they mean it. The six VIP cabanas aren’t bad either – just ask Eva Longoria Parker, Avril Lavigne, and Lil Jon. They dug the VIP cabanas private dipping pools, king-sized day beds, teakwood furniture and Xbox 360s.
