Ep. 61 - Piero's Freddie Glusman

For nearly 40 years, Piero's has been one of Las Vegas's top Italian restaurants, and a destination for anyone looking for an authentic "Old Vegas" vibe. 

Its history is preserved on the walls, on the booth plaques honoring long-time regulars and celebrities and in the movie "Casino," which used Piero's to portray a couple of fictional (but similar) restaurants. 

And all of that history is personified in Piero's only owner, Freddie Glusman. Jonathan, Lisa and producer Rich Johnson venture out of the Plaza for the first time to visit Freddie in his office and talk about the restaurant, his life and some of the people he's known over his many decades in Las Vegas. 

(And we take Freddie with extra 'salt,' so this episode is rated 'E.')

Hosts: Jonathan Jossel, Lisa Melmed
