LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman is inviting folks to enjoy some beef, booze and a book signing on Thursday at his namesake restaurant.

The self-proclaimed "happiest mayor in the universe" is set to host a signing of his memoir Being Oscar at Oscar's steakhouse from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The steakhouse is located inside the Plaza Hotel and Casino.

The signing is open to the public, but autograph seekers are being recommended to make a reservation to dine with Goodman in the event. Reservations can be made at 702-386-7227.

Thursday's event is the latest in a book signing tour around town. The former mob attorney showed up at Smashburger near University of Nevada, Las Vegas on National Hamburger Day Tuesday.

On May 24, the self-proclaimed "happiest mayor in the universe" dropped by FOX5 News This Morning to tout his book that chronicles his years defending the mob.

The book also dives into his love for the city and his path to a 12-year stint as mayor of Las Vegas.

Goodman said his path to the mayor's office can be attributed by his star turning role as himself in the movie Casino.

"That's the reason I ran for mayor to be honest," Goodman said on FOX5. "I loved being in that movie with [Robert] DeNiro, [Joe] Pesci and [Martin] Scorcese as director."

His acting, though, did not win over many fans.

"My mother called me and she said, 'I saw your movie and it's a good thing you're a lawyer.'"

He goes on to jokingly say that his capacity as mayor would allow him to force movie productions to give him a cameo role.
