Rosenthal Car Bombing
Marie Callender's and Tony Roma's parking lot. Near the light pole is the location of the "Lefty" Rosenthal car bombing.

Opened in 1969. Closed in the late 2010s.


On October 4, 1982, Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal departed Tony Roma's restaurant (620 East Sahara Avenue; shared the same parking lot as Marie Callender's). When he started the ignition of his 1981 Cadillac Eldorado, the car exploded. Due to a defect in the vehicle, the car manufacturer had installed a metal plate underneath the driver's seat. Authorities credited the metal plate for saving Rosenthal's life. No one was ever charged for the crime. Frank Rosenthal was added to the Nevada Gaming Control's Black Book in 1988.


Located at 600 East Sahara, Las Vegas, Nevada.
