Pharo Bank Casino
Events at the Magic Castle in Hollywood
The Annual Soapy Smith Wake
For 10 straight years the Pharo Bank has put on the wild west casino
night show, in celebration of the death of the famed gambler Soapy Smith. His great grandson, Jefferson Smith III, tips
a glass to Soapy's Ghost and the wildest gambling costume party in Hollywood transpires.
