Las Vegas, NV, June 08, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Jewish-America mobster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel was violently murdered in 1947, but the "Spirit of Bugsy" continues to linger in the gardens of the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.
The impromptu experimental project featuring Max, mobster at-large, debuted yesterday at the Flamingo with showgirls, a tour through the Flamingo gardens, a visit to the Bugsy Siegel memorial, a photo shoot, and a lot of curious guests, most of whom had never seen a mobster in a pin-striped suite carrying a violin case.
The project was the brainchild of Max, last name undisclosed, who said he only recently recognized the vision of Bugsy Siegel.
"Bugsy was extremely violent, and he executed his plans poorly, but his vision is what made Las Vegas what it is today. I don't think people recognize that," Max explains.
"His monument is hidden in the Flamingo gardens, and I felt compelled to bring Bugsy's spirit out in some way, but leave the violence behind. So Max, mobster at-large, was born."
Max plans to let the character develop itself, by letting the spirit guide it - in the gardens, on the Strip, in the Mob Museum, maybe even in church.
"Wherever the spirit, or the Spirit, leads me," Max says with a smile.
For now, you can probably find Max hanging around the Flamingo, relaxing in the gardens, occasionally checking in on patrons of Bugsy's Bar, posing for photos on the sidewalks just outside the doors, or maybe strolling across the street in front of Caesars Palace where he can get a wider view of the classic Flamingo Hotel.
If you see Max, he encourages you to think of Bugsy.
"It's not about me," Max insists.
