MURRAY with Oscar Goodman at “Being Oscar” Book Release Party
Comedy Magician and Tropicana headliner Murray SawChuck partied with former mayor Oscar Goodman during his book release party at Oscar’s Steakhouse in the Plaza Hotel & Casino in Downtown Las Vegas on Thursday, May 23, 2013.
Goodman was celebrating the release of his new book Being Oscar: From Mob Lawyer to Mayor of Las Vegas. One of America’s most celebrated criminal defense attorneys and former three-term mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman tells his story in this captivating new memoir. Known as the “mob’s lawyer” for more than three decades, Oscar Goodman was the go-to defense attorney for some of the biggest gangsters in America. Written with co-author George Anastasia, one of the most respected crime reporters in the country, Being Oscar candidly reveals never-before-disclosed details of his service to a Who’s Who of mob bosses such as Meyer Lanksy, Anthony “Tony the Ant” Spilotro, Nick Civella, Vinny “The Animal” Ferrara and “Crazy” Phil Leonetti.
“If you don’t know this yet, I’m a HUGE fan of the Mob and the history of Las Vegas,” said Murray. “So it wasn’t hard for me to say YES to the invite to celebrate with Oscar Goodman and his book signing party at his restaurant Oscars ‘Beef, Booze & Broads'”.
Murray spoke with good friend and Highway Connection Radio host Bart Torres about how Oscar is everything Vegas… Mob Lawyer to Vegas Mayor. Murray and Bart are huge Mafia fans!
