Hotel Implosions

This awesome collection of (nine) videos will make you want to jump on a plane and go to Vegas. The first two times I visited Las Vegas in 1988 I stayed at the Sands Hotel and Casino and from what I can remember we had a really good time:
For decades, The Sands was the epitome of cool on the Strip. The Rat Pack performed together for the first time on the stage of the Copa Room while filming “Ocean’s Eleven” during the day. For over thirty years it was one of the most recognizable hotels in Vegas. It took less than 30 seconds for it to come crashing down on June 30, 1996 to make room for The Venetian.

I never liked the Venetian...
