Eric Kornfeld has one of the best stories about passing at The Strip, I've ever heard. I spoke with Eric in Februarry 2016. Among other stories, he also tells about the night the late Michael Hampton Caine was unbelievably nice to him for no apparent reason and how Lucien Hold made the club special by making it more than just a place to do business. He also spoke glowingly of his ex wife Patty Rosborough and their eldest, Molly, who is now also in "the family business".
Here is a partial list of Name Drops from the Eric Kornfeld interview:
