Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says marijuana is not a drug, a British magazine reported Monday. But his spokesman said the governor was joking. Schwarzenegger told the British edition of GQ magazine that he had not taken drugs, even though the former bodybuilder and Hollywood star has acknowledged using marijuana in the 1970s and was shown smoking a joint in the 1977 documentary "Pumping Iron." "That is not a drug. It's a leaf," he told GQ. "My drug was pumping iron, trust me."

Omar Siddiqui was well-known on the Strip. Casinos vied with one another to lure the high-stakes Bay Area gambler to their tables. They flew him to Las Vegas on private jets.

After a quarter-century spent raising the bar on the men's grooming experience - opening a handful of just-for-the-guys salons coast-to-coast and launching an eponymous line of men's hair- and skincare products - John Allan is going underground. Underground, that is, to the basement level of the recently renovated Saks Fifth Avenue men's store in Beverly Hills, home to the newest John Allan's club. It's a 3,800-square-foot subterranean space appointed in 21st century man cave chic: unfinished concrete floors, exposed metal duct work, walls in a color palette of black and gray punctuated with blond wood accents and framed prints (on loan from a local art gallery)

Where do basketball players go to celebrate the signing of their first NBA contract? No, not Disneyland. Many of them make tracks to a tailor. Some players are just too tall to wear off-the-rack menswear--suits, jackets, pants--typically designed to fit men 6 feet, 3 inches and shorter. Others may be able to find a suit jacket that will fit, but the matching pants will be too large. So most NBA players are only too happy to indulge in custom-made clothing. And why not? Suit prices may start at about $1,000, but the average NBA salary is $1.33 million.
