Goodbye New Frontier

I have to admit I shed a tear watching the video from last night's implosion of the New Frontier Casino in Las Vegas. Janine and I spent our first big vacation there and had a really good time.

They're going to build this massive high end casino and resort over the remains of that location, but the New Frontier left behind a lot of history. Elvis revitalized his career, The Supremes ended their career there, and I could almost feel Sinatra as I walked around the craps tables.

Las Vegas is notorious for trying to stay modern, and I don't fault anyone for getting rid of the New Frontier, but it's definately sad to see a place that meant a lot to our modern history and to Janine and I go up in smoke.
