|MY VEGAS LIFE: MEMORIES OF ELVIS, BARRY MANILOW & THE GOLDEN AGE OF VEGAS
April 19, 2017 - Sue L, Viva Las Vegas! Elvis Presley Fan Club / Elvis Express Radio
This is the story of Dominic Parisi, one of the most famous hotel and casino managers in the history of Las Vegas. In fact, members of his family helped to build Las Vegas during
its Golden Age, in places like Caesar’s Palace and the Fremont Hotel and Casino.
Dominic learned about illegal gambling in the back room of his father’s store in Steubenville, OH, before his own journey to Las Vegas as a young man; a journey to the one place
in the US where gambling was legal. For more than 30 years, Dominic directed the hospitality venues, high-roller suites, and entertainers suites and green rooms at the Las Vegas
Hilton–one of the most iconic hotel and casinos in Las Vegas!
Through the years, Dominic interacted with dozens of famous entertainers and high-rollers, like Olivia Newton-John, Michael Jackson, and more. However, he was closest to Elvis
Presley. The Las Vegas Hilton (LVH) was called “the hotel that Elvis built.”
Over the span of 8 years, Elvis sold out 837 consecutive concerts at the hotel; a record that still stands in Las Vegas! When the hotel became the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, one
of the main headliners was Barry Manilow. During his 5-year run at the LVH, Dominic helped Barry Manilow in countless ways and they developed a good friendship.
Recently, the LVH was purchased and beautifully remodeled by the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino. Once again, it is the premier property in Las Vegas.
This is the fascinating story of Dominic Parisi and the last remaining hotel and casino from the Golden Age of Las Vegas. It’s the story of Elvis Presley, Barry Manilow, and other
great entertainers. It’s the story of famous gamblers and infamous characters. And, it’s the story of the one man who lived it all…Dominic Parisi
