Ya' know the one where they beat the hell out of them in the basement. Drive by and have a look now before they tear it down in the name of progress.

I was today years old when I learned that Casino was based on real people lol

it was loosely based on the Chicago outfit, they had the Teamsters in their pocket to skim Vegas casinos for years.

If anyone is ever in old Vegas, the mob museum is a neat place to check out.

Yes on Bryn Mawr just west of rt 83. Industrial redevelopment. Those houses sold for stupid money last summer. I think that house went for $890k. The company I work for was going to move in to one of the new buildings going up but the available date was too far out for us.

That explains the security presence when we were out there wrecking the cable and poles.

If you want to really know the story of Casino in real life , read the book “Casino” by Nicholas Pileggi. Another good book on the subject is “Family Secrets” by Jeff Coen.

Fun fact, I went to all of the real life hangouts in Vegas including Frank Rosenthal’s home that has the wrong address in the book. Luckily the manager of the Tony Roma’s restaurant that was where Frank’s car blew up was from Crystal Lake and she gave us exact directions on where to go. She thought it was super cool that Paul and the decided to do that during one of our trips to Vegas. It was different and fun!!

Can anyone tell me how it’s believed that this was the murder site? It didn’t come up in court
I did some serious data mining one day. One of the things that I read was that it was Louis Eboli's house (Louie The Mooch). He had just bought a house in Oak Brook and the one in Bensenville was vacant. A little more data mining lead me to that address.
