During one of Frank “The Prime Minister” Costello’s return visits to Hot Springs, Arkansas, Owney Madden invited him over to his house. Owney’s house was modest, as he wasn’t much for showing off. Agnes (Owney’s wife), naturally made Frank spaghetti and meatballs.

When Agnes and the maid brought the spaghetti out to serve Frank Costello and Owney, Costello took one bite and remarked, “Hey, what say we all eat out tonight?” Agnes did not hesitate and she picked up the bowl and dumped it over on Costello’s head. Costello was not welcome in Hot Springs anymore, not even in Owney’s kitchen.
