Today, onlly in 1946, mobster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel opened The Pink Flamingo Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, The grand opening was a flop and the casino lost $300,000 in the first week of operation. In two weeks, Bugsy had to shut the place down. Later, he got more investors and renamed the casino "The Flamingo" after his girlfriend, Virginia Hill, because she had red hair and long legs.
How does this relate to Princeton?
Reason #1: Victor Gambino lived in Princeton and was an investor in "The Flamingo"!
Reason #2: Warren Beatty, who played Bugsy in the popular movie, was best friends with Clinton Kimbrough, who was offered a Creative Writing scholoarship from Princeton University
Reason #3: Melissa Darpino, the event planner of the Peacock Inn, planned Emmy events where Annette Benning and Warren Beatty were in attendence!
