Everybody loves a good story — but a good Mob story is even better. A veteran journalist, an author of books on organized crime and an ex-mobster will gather in The Underground at The Mob Museum for an evening in our speakeasy of drinks, laughs and stories that are guaranteed to shed light in the dark corners of organized crime.
Michael Franzese will recall his days as a high-ranking racketeer in the Colombo crime family in New York. Gus Russo will relate his experiences digging into the JFK assassination and the dark corners of organized crime in Chicago, and Scott M. Deitche will share stories from his years researching organized crime from Florida to New Jersey to Havana as well as tips on good Mob cocktails from his book, “Cocktail Noir: From Gangsters and Gin Joints to Gumshoes and Gimlets.”
The program, hosted by Mob Museum Senior Director of Content Geoff Schumacher, will be informal and conversational, allowing the storytellers to improvise and guests to interact with the panelists.
Tickets are $25 with special discounts for Museum Members.
This will be the first-ever public program in The Underground.
7pm – 9pm
