    I saw someone posting elsewhere that they had heard the Riv was going down on June 14............we will be in Vegas then and would want to see that happen................has anyone else heard any more details?
    Also, where would be a good vantage point to see her come down?

    Yup, on the 14th at 2 am the tallest of the two towers will be imploded. The other one in August. We will be in Vegas on the 14th but since they're not going to implode the entire structure on the 14th I'm not sure we're going to watch. We arrive in Vegas around 6 pm on the 13th after 20 hours of travelling. We might skip this one and get some sleep instead.
