Saturday, April 14; 6:30-9:30pm; Maui Country Club (48 Nonohe Pl., Paia); $150 single ticket ($85 tax-deductible) / $2,000 VIP “Mugs & Molls” table of eight with butler service ($1,480 tax deductible)
The Gangster Gazette reported that Louie Marie, “reputed speakeasy boss [and] arts patron,” was recently “plucked from the river three weeks after his mysterious disappearance.”
“On account of the slugs in his cranium,” Police Chief Cameron told the Gazette, “we suspect foul play.”
So who bumped off the Big Cheese? Investigations by both police and P.I. Pinkerton are ongoing.
Until his untimely death, Marie was the owner and operator of “the renowned Juice Joint nightspot.” His wife, Rosie Marie, is now the sole proprietor. This Saturday (Apr. 14), the widowed Marie is throwing a party to “send Louie off in style… pullin’ out all the stops for this one; big, loud, and a wild crowd [because] that’s how my Louie liked it.” The Gazette reports that “most of the town’s high rollers and heavy hitters will be on hand to see that Louie gets his due,” and all proceeds benefit “Louie’s soft spot,” the Maui Academy of Performing Arts (MAPA).
