In Case You Are Awake at That Hour ...

We once again venture down that slippery slope of an off-topic post. The New Frontier Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is scheduled for implosion at 2:30 a.m. Tuesday (Pacific time) to make way for the $2 billion Montreux, scheduled to open in 2011.

At least two Las Vegas stations plan to stream the implosion: KTNV and KLAS.

The New Frontier opened in 1942 and was the oldest surviving hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip until it was closed on July 16. It was once owned by Howard Hughes.

The New Frontier played host to many celebrities, including Elvis Presley, who did his first Las Vegas performance at the joint in 1956. Diana Ross, Ronald Reagan, The Supremes and Siegried and Roy also performed at the property.
