LAS VEGAS - It's the first time a woman naked from the waist up has ever initiated a conversation with me at a swimming pool - not counting my daughters when they were toddlers. "Hi," this fantastically caramel-tanned person said as she leaned over - and what I'm going to guess were a couple of 38DDs came within about a foot of my face. "I'm Sara. " We were sitting next to each other at the aptly named Bare, the adults-only pool at the Mirage Resort and Casino. Not only was Sara topless - oh, we're calling it "European style" now - but she was wearing a bathing suit bottom that can best be described as something you might tie around your finger to remind yourself you aren't wearing a top. It was time for a drink.

Mayor Rendell put out the call. He was holding a fund-raising event, and he wanted his major contributors to attend. So, last night, about 75 of them went to the City Hall cocktail party to sip wine and champagne, munch on shrimp and cheese and salmon and to give - $1,000 each. No surprise there. Except that the money went not to Rendell nor to another Philadelphian nor even to another Pennsylvania politician. It went to Gov. Florio. Why would Philadelphia residents shell out big bucks to the leader of another state, a state that, not long ago, tried to lure away the '76ers and the Flyers?

Up to now, former District Attorney Edward G. Rendell has run softly for governor, albeit with a big schtick. He was saying things like, "As you know, I will soon complete my second term as district attorney. At that time, I plan to announce my candidacy for governor of Pennsylvania. " Next week, at no specific stroke of the clock, the Committee to Elect Ed Rendell will become Rendell for Governor - and Rendell will really, truly, finally be on the road to the Democratic primary.

Ah, summer. There's something about these warm and languid days and nights that makes many of us want to throw together a little gathering. Picking a cocktail party theme makes planning the menu and decor more fun. Here are just a few to get your creative wheels turning. Invite your favorite people, add some fairy lights and lanterns, and get the party started.   '60s South Beach Showtime's new Magic City TV series, set in mid-century Miami, is inspiration for party decor and music with a retro vibe, served with Cuban-influenced canapes.

HEAVENLY MOM: No one but no one was happier than Lamont "Monty G" Anderson of South Philadelphia — 380 pounds of pure Sixers love, down from 467 after trainer Kimberly Garrison got him to abuse the machines at the 12th Street Gym.

Stylistas aren't quite sure what to call the haute hair they crave. A forehead-spanning pouf, maybe? That bump? You know, the big-hair thingy? Here's a little Fashion 101, folks: It's a pompadour. "I didn't quite know what to call it," said Jessica Lynch, 34, a fund-raiser for the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. "My stylist gave me a pompadour with a ponytail to frame my face. It was a very retro 1950s look. I loved it. " Whatever you call it, the pompadour is hot right now. In a retro-good-girl, modern-bad-girl kind of way. Some fashions catch on quickly, but others (like the pompadour)

A "SAFE" STUNTMAN got a round of applause last night as he got up from a stretcher, after medics pulled him out of a Chevy Tahoe he was driving in a crash scene in the action/thriller being shot along JFK Boulevard between 18th and 19th streets. Onlookers feared for the stuntman after fire trucks and ambulances arrived, but he got up from the stretcher instead of being loaded into an ambulance. Actor Jason Statham ("The Expendables," "Transporter") shot, literally, yesterday afternoon at 15th & Moravian, in Center City.

IT WAS MOSTLY a happy herd of donkeys that gathered around the water hole - before getting the spur from their riders. The much-ballyhooed Republican "political wave" that is expected to swamp America on Election Day won't wet our feet because Philadelphia is a Democratic dike. A "red city" for the Phillies, we're back to true blue now. The main purpose of Monday night's Democratic autumn cocktail party was to inspire ward leaders and their lieutenants to get out the vote next Tuesday.
