The Fast Picker: NFL Locks Week 3

If you did blow in Las Vegas in the early ’80s it probably came from someone who got it from someone who go it from Birdie Wallace.

He supplied coke to everyone who supplied coke to everyone in Las Vegas: dealers, valets, bartenders, taxi drivers, strippers, whores, hotel managers, stars and performers.

Steve & Edie, Phyllis Dyller, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Sammy Davis Jr., Brando, Eric Estrada, Goldie Hawn: either directly or indirectly, Max Steingrout sold cocaine to them all.

Birdie Wallace’s cocaine.

Peru was the world’s leading producer of cocaine. The Colombian traffickers turned it into a dirty, bloody business and the cartel cocaine wars turned violent. This spelled the end for ’60’s pacifists like Las Vegas’ Birdie Wallace.

He didn’t have the stomach for the rough stuff.

Birdie made too many people nervous and he started to make too much money.

Birdie was fine doing the hustle, rolling a junkie or slapping around an under-aged runaway hooker, but once he started to move mountains of coke and make the kind of money reserved for Wayne Newton, he no longer knew his place.

One day he flew away.

Allegedly with a bullet to the back of his head.

Peruvian Flake

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

The Peruvian flake glistened under the flourescent light.

Lily white, pure as Johnson’s baby powder.

In the late ’70’s – early ’80’s, Peru was the world’s leading producer of cocaine. Birdie Wallace was Sin City’s leading importer and distributor.

Before Colombian drug traffickers turned it into a dirty, bloody business, it was a match made in heaven.

Cocaine was thought of as a clean, healthy, alternative, recreational drug.

Everyone did it.

Then the cartel cocaine wars turned violent spelling the end for ’60’s pacifist, refugees like Las Vegas’ Birdie Wallace.

He didn’t have the stomach for the rough stuff.

None of us did.

Birdie Wallace

Friday, July 27th, 2012

In the mid-80’s Max Steingrout ran with a speed freak named Birdie Wallace. Birdie was nervous and paranoid and he made everyone around him nervous and paranoid.

Between 1985 and 1989 Birdie became the biggest importer and distributor of blow in Clark County, NV. He helped make Las Vegas become known as ”Sin City.”

He supplied coke to everyone who supplied coke to everyone in Las Vegas: dealers, valets, bartenders, taxi drivers, strippers, whores, hotel managers, stars and performers.

If you did blow in Las Vegas in the late ’80s it probably came from someone who got it from someone who go it from Birdie Wallace.

In the end, it didn’t last. He made too many people nervous and he started to make too much money.

One day Birdie flew away, allegedly with a bullet to the back of his head, in the back of an El Dorado.
