Make Your RVPS's For The Oscar Dinner Series Coming Up On 1/28

Classic Vegas comes to life during the Oscar Dinner Series with former city of Las Vegas Mayor, Oscar B. Goodman. The next dinner on Thursday, Jan. 28 at 6:30 p.m., at Oscar’s steakhouse at the Plaza Hotel & Casino will feature Goodman speaking about “The Mark of Cain - The Nevada Black Book.”

At the Oscar Dinner Series, guests enjoy a gourmet three-course meal paired with red and white wines as well as the signature Oscar Goodman Martini while listening to Goodman discuss his extraordinary experiences as a criminal defense attorney that are hallmarks of Las Vegas’ unique and fascinating history.

Before becoming mayor of Las Vegas, Goodman represented many notorious Las Vegas figures, many who ended up listed in Nevada’s Black Book, the list of individuals barred by the Nevada Gaming Control Board from entering Nevada casinos. Goodman likens a listing in the Black Book to the curse of God on Cain for killing his brother, since “the only real way to get your name off the list is to die.” Over the course of his career, Goodman represented several individuals who were named in the Black Book, including Tony Spilotro, Frank Rosenthal and Tony Civella. On Jan. 28, Goodman will discuss his views on the Black Book, its constitutionality and the impact it had on his prior clients.

At its inception in 1960, Nevada’s Black Book, officially known as the Excluded Persons List, included 11 names, most added to the list because of their alleged affiliations to organized crime. Currently, there are 33 individuals on the Black Book list, most considered to be casino cheats.

To attend the Jan. 28 dinner, RSVP and pre-payment of $150 is required. To RSVP or for more information call 702-386-7227 or email RSVP@playlv.com.
