Las Vegas pays homage to mob past

A hand gun that once allegedly belonged to mobster Bugsy Siegel is seen on display at the Mob Experience at the Tropicana, Monday, March 28, 2011, in Las Vegas. The Mob Experience which opens Wednesday on the Las Vegas Strip, is an interactive attraction featuring gangster memorabilia and commentary from film mobsters James Caan, Mickey Rourke and Frank Vincent. Speakeasies, bootleggers, gun-wielding crime lords, easy women and gruff Italian accents pay homage to Las Vegas’ mob roots in a pair of new attractions glamorizing Sin City’s criminal history.
