E-397: Tony Gets Fired

 Random Vegas

Private dances at Vegas strip clubs require the dancer to always keep one foot on the floor, preventing straddling, dry humping, and other erotic positions. (@kinziroze)

Its about to happen again.  An icon of Las Vegas signage will be going away, making the strip a sadder place.  Of course we are talking about the Mirage volcano, expected to be destroyed to make way for the Hard Rock Brand. In order to bring something even more iconic, the Dunes had to go.  Most lamented of which is the beautiful turret signage.  Without a doubt, the #1 sign I wish I’d seen, shared here by @Las_when. Supplementing that view was the ability to enjoy some drinks at the Top o the Dunes complete with a unique perspective of that marquee.    But Vegas can’t and won’t allow nostalgia to prevent progress.  In the Dunes case, we lost the property to an even bigger marquee attraction, the Fountains of Bellagio.  Rumor is Hard Rock has plans to build a guitar hotel as they have at other locations around the country.  Will this be an upgrade from the volcano?  Only time will tell.
