Lonely Planet review

In 1946 the Flamingo was the talk of the town. The New York Mafia had shelled out millions to finish building this tropical gaming oasis in the desert. Billy Wilkerson, owner of the Hollywood Reporter and some sizzling-hot LA nightclubs, originally broke ground here. But he ran out of money fast, so the mob stepped in.
