Interested in the Mob? Sign up for Newsletter

Me, trying to look tough...
I know a huge percentage of my readers live in New York City and Long Island, which coincidentally is where a lot of the Mafia lives.

Are you truly interested in the Mafia? I am working on possibly setting up an event, which would be an "Ed Scarpo Presents Dinner with..." kind of an event.

Now, my idea of a good event is a small, limited gathering in a nice steakhouse. Me and maybe 10-12 others sit around a table and sip wine and discuss Cosa Nostra with a former member of the Mafia.

Face it, "former" is the next best thing. Unless you're a hardcore crook, you aren't going to get an opportunity to sit down with an active member.

I don't like crowds. I don't like sitting for hours on an uncomfortable chair... Like I said, think steakhouse and wine. (I'd add cigars, but you know the goddamn anti-smoking laws.)

So it won't be a cheap event. It won't be for everybody unfortunately because we would be able to seat only so many. So if this even remotely interests you, you might want to sign up for my newsletter because I need a way to send  invitations.

It is still early and I am trying to gauge interest. That said, I do have something "specific" in the early stages, but please, leave comments on what you think of my idea: small,  intimate steakhouse gathering versus plastic chairs in a VFW hall somewhere... would you attend? How much would you be willing pay to sit down with a made guy who can tell stories, answer all your questions...
