Las Vegas Flamingo ~ Bugsy Siegel Memorial

 On December 26, 1946 Bugsy Siegel opened the doors to the Flamingo.  The Flamingo was named after Bugsy's girlfriend Virginia Hill whose nickname was Flamingo.   It did close down because of funds and Siegel was blamed for skimming from the MOB.

On June 20, 1947, Bugsy was shot.   This memorial is on the Flamingo Grounds near the outdoor wedding chapel.

I think my Audingo Stress ball might have some ties to the MOB.  What do you think?
