I have written about the Colombo's many times. I have also written about the Mustang Club. I will write about it now.
It is the 1980's in Orange County Cocaine and partying are all the rage.
Jimmy Casino a man with a prison record and a background in hot dogs opens a Topless Theater in Santa Ana California. The Mustang Club. It is a small topless joint with a moat around the stage. The place is a huge hit! The girls make huge amounts of money and so does Jimmy Casino. He lives in a mansion, he has the hot girls, the cars and everything else.
Jimmy also has debts, he owes everyone. A man who now calls himself William Carrol invests in the club. Bill Carrol has a record and another name. The often incarcerated Los Angeles Mafia Capo Mike "Rizzi" Rizzitello knows Bill from Chino State prison. They used to play tennis. Mike Rizzi was a tough guy. Mike never did big things, he was a worker. He was a shooter for Joey Gallo in the war in Brooklyn. He blasted guys in Los Angeles. Mike was still always broke.
There was a guy who wanted to be like Mike. Joseph Grosso and he sold lingerie at the club. There was a huge bouncer named Big George Yudzavitch. Big George had a past with the Mafia. He used to be with the Gotti crew in Queens. He was a shylock collector. Big George flipped and put guys away. Guys like Joe Piney Armone.
Jimmy Casino gets shot and killed. Real hitmen, these guys rape his girlfriend and steal credit cards. Mike Rizzi and Joseph Grosso shot Bill Carrol in the head. He lives. Big George brags that he helped get rid of the bloody clothes and pistol. Big George is also close to Fat Bobby Paduano. Big George ends up shot to death in an Irvine parking lot. Guess who has an office there?
