Trends / History

The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, boasts a new self-guided audio tour that takes guests on an auditory journey through the museum’s four floors. It also offers a deeper dive into some of the Mob’s events and personalities. At a running time of up to 85 minutes, more than 40 stops on the audio tour include stories narrated by museum volunteers with anecdotes from former Mob defense attorney and Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman.

 

Guests can stop or start the tour at any time. Topics available include untold stories about Al Capone’s prison band and tales from the Prohibition era. Learn more about the lethal love affairs of the “Kiss of Death” girl, and additional details about the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, including an examination of crime scene evidence. Other topics offer insight on law enforcement’s methods for taking down the Mob and the unsolved murders of Bugsey Siegel and Jimmy Hoffa.

 

Additionally, Oscar Goodman relives stories from his 35 years defending notorious and alleged Mob figures. He discusses his first case, the murder of his client Tony Spilotro and what it was like to represent Meyer Lansky, known as the “Mob’s accountant.” Goodman appeared as himself in 1995’s Casino, an experience he also recounts on the audio tour.

 

The new audio tour can be added to any museum ticket for $8 for individuals, or $7 for groups of 10 or more.

Review: Mr. Coffee Iced Coffeemaker

While I love iced coffee, I hate waiting for brewed coffee to cool down or for the cold brew to chill for 12–24 hours. For a while I relied on buying iced coffee, but the daily expense adds up.
