Al Capone's Niece to Host Templeton Whiskey Dinner at the Seminole Casino January 17

Most people don't know much about Al Capone except for what they see in movies and sensationalized headlines: that of a violent bootlegger whose name was among the most notorious during the days of Prohibition.

But one of the last people on Earth with actual memory of Al Capone, his niece Deirdre Marie Capone, doesn't see him this way and is trying to change how history views her uncle.

This Saturday, NYY Steak and Deirdre Capone pay tribute to her Uncle Al on his birthday by hosting a four-course Templeton Rye Whiskey Dinner at the Seminole Casino in Coconut Creek.
