19-year-old huckleberry Steingrout arrived in Las Vegas pie & wide-eyed in 1976 with a lack of self-control, an addictive personality, a lust for life & an affinity for inhalants.
He hid what little money he had in his shoes and his socks in what little he had in his pants.
Never proud, Max spent the cocaine-fueled late 70s & early ’80s doing any sub-human job Vegas had to offer. A man’s got to eat, a junkie’s got to get high, and a bettor’s got to bet.
Binge drinking betting orgies resulted in syphilis of the bank and Max resorted to canvassing the Vegas Strip handing out escort brochures to tourists. A little action on the side.
They say it’s darkest right before the dawn and in Max’s case it’s true. In 1986 luminary, Jake “The Fizz” Fizzario (RIP) shot across the Las Vegas desert sky intersecting and brightening Max Steingrout’s life.
The Fizz (RIP) was done. Max was done. “The System” was done and, in Max’s opinion: Las Vegas was done.
The corporate takeover was complete. The last vestiges of Meyer Lansky’s crew were run out of town with Lefty Rosenthal & Co.
