I'm at Green Valley Ranch, working on completing my review for Wizard of Vegas, and I have a trivia question for Wizard of Vegas members before I post my review. The first person to answer correctly gets a free drink courtesy of Wizard of Vegas at the G2E meetup, or an equivalent prize to be determined later. Here is the question:

Green Valley Ranch's upscale restaurant is called Hank's Fine Steaks and Martinis. Who is this restaurant named for? The answer might take some in-depth casino knowledge, or at least some Googling.

" Then, in March 1947, when he was 34, Greenspun was hired by Ben "Bugsy" Siegel to help churn out hype for the reopening of Siegel's Flamingo Hotel."

Bugsy had a way of installing greatness in people he knew.

His girlfriend, Virginia Hill , appeared before the Kefauver committee on gambling. The first bookie I ever worked for was henry Gordon. He also appeared before that committee. But even he had to admit of all those testified, appeared only Virginia Hill
was not intimidated in the least.

SENATOR TOBEY: "But why would Joe Epstein give you all that money, Miss Hill?"

WITNESS: "You really want to know?"

SENATOR TOBEY: "Yes, I really want to know."

WITNESS: "Then I'll tell you why. Because I'm the best cocksucker in town!"

SENATOR KEFAUVER: "Order! I demand order!"

Hello, Teddy,
It was nice meeting you after I became $10,000 richer. I had a great run of play in the tournament. BTW, your sticking to the optimal strategy in UTH is admirable. I predict you could make about $400. As U have seen, I had to give some money back in order to be invited back. Looking forward to your write up.

Thanks, Wayne, and congrats on the win again. I colored up $400+ on a $200 buy-in minus dealer tokes. I don't think the casino liked me very much since they didn't comp any of my room charges ... :( Red Rock $25K tourney in two weeks.
