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.
