Mob Museum Opens in Las Vegas

Anthony Curtis’ nationally syndicated weekly column.

Last Tuesday marked the opening of the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, better known as the Mob Museum. Located downtown in an old post office and federal courthouse that dates back to 1933, this is Las Vegas’ second mob-themed attraction. The first was the Mob Experience at the Tropicana,which is currently closed after a change of ownership. With a top ticket price of $18, the Mob Museum is charging less than half of what it’s predecessor did, and there are $4-$6 discounts in place for kids, seniors, military, teachers, students, and law enforcement. The well-thought-out attraction has plenty of vintage photos and features several interactive experiences, including listening in on a real wire-tap or firing a tommy gun. The entire tour, which is self-guided, will take about two hours to complete. Afterward, you can walk around the corner for a drink at the Mob Bar.

Oysters at Wynn: Lakeside, the restaurant and lounge situated on the Lake of Dreams at Wynn Las Vegas, has brought back its good Oyster Happy Hour. From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. daily, a selection of several types of oysters on the half shell are available for $1.50 per at the bar or in the lounge.

Door Prizes: The Four Queens hands out a good sheet of coupons at its east front entrance. Some are for new club members only, but there’s also a $10 first-card-ace for blackjack (worth about $5 mathematically) and a 2-for-1 entrée in Magnolia’s restaurant. You also get a free spin on a giant slot machine with a slim chance to win cash prizes.

 Question: What was the result of the Kelly Clarkson National Anthem bet for the Super Bowl?

Answer: In the closest result in the history of the bet, the time was officially called over at most books that offered it. Clarkson almost hit the 1:34 over/under mark on the button, but the bookies said she went a hair past to bring in a winner for over bettors.
