Former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman was known to swill gin and bring showgirls everywhere while he was in office. Now, the booze and girls are back as he opens his namesake steakhouse December 15.
The colorful ex-mayor says that Oscar's steakhouse at the Plaza Hotel and Casino downtown will feature good-looking hostesses hired to chat with diners about topics like sports, wine and politics.
They'll be experts in Las Vegas, he says, and will eat and drink with guests. Goodman is licensing his name to the restaurant. He said the restaurant's tagline -- "Beef, Booze and Broads" -- comes from one of his cases in the 1970s. Adjacent to the steakhouse will be an Italian grill called Simpatico.
