Bada bing! It’s 1930 and there’s no prohibition on drama in the Nevada desert. As cannoli-crazy goodfella Al Calzone goes all-in building his nasty new casino, senile sharpshooter Grannie Oakley and her Oz-tounding granddaughter Ruby Slippers fight to keep their Western saloon town afloat and the tommy guns at bay. ​​​​​​​With the help of swanky show-cat Dan Delion, the townsfolk plot to turn Don Calzone into their furry friend’s next fancy feast—but Al and mafiosa Bella Donna have plans of their own to spa-get-ti the deed and transform the Westerners’ home into a literal ghost town. Will lady-layin’ lawman Hank Kupfs put the crooks behind bars, or will local prostitute Ophelia Thrustin have to call-girl it quits? Will cheeky bandito-ito Dennis Jimenez grow up to be a Zorro or a zero? Will smokin’ waitress Em Fizeema cough up the mafia’s secrets and burn the mobsters, or will Mormon missionary Paul Igamy end up sleepin’ with the fishes in Salt Lake? You’ll never guess who goes bust and who hits the jackpot in HPT 169: Casino Evil!​
