Las Vegas Mayor To Welcome SI Swimsuit Issue Models To Sin City, Deemed Luckiest Mayor Ever

As far as mayoral positions are concerned, holding office as the mayor of Las Vegas might be the sweetest gig out there. Sure, being the mayor of Des Moines, Iowa might have its own unique rewards, but I have to go with being the mayor of Sin City as the city civil servant position most coveted out of them all. And that doesn’t even take into account that the current mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman, on behalf of the grand town, has the honor of officially greeting the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition models to Vegas later this week, much like he did last year when he greeted the stunning edition of sultry and sexy models from the 2010 edition (see photos).

Here’s how Swimsuit Model Week in Sin City is scheduled to play out (via the Las Vegas Sun):

After Wednesday’s official welcome by our Merry Mayor of Mirth Oscar Goodman, the ladies celebrate with their first luncheon at STK at The Cosmopolitan. Mid-afternoon, they watch the Jabbawockeez at Diablo’s Cantina at the Monte Carlo, capped by a big 9 p.m. party at LAX at the Luxor.

Thursday starts at 10 a.m. with the temporary renaming of The Strip as Swimsuit Boulevard, with Oscar officiating the new signs outside the Monte Carlo. At noon, the swimsuit models appear at Fashion Show mall and then split up for a meet-and-greet and autograph session at the Hard Rock Hotel’s retail store and Rao’s at Caesars Palace with Imperial Palace headliners Human Nature.

Wow. Swimsuit models and Human Nature, whoever they are? Sounds like a grand old time, although it would have been cooler if the headliners had instead been The Human League, especially in light of all the comely ladies who will be present. “Don’t you want me, baby?” indeed.
