Wanna see a building implode? Sure you do - who wouldn't? Well, you're in luck, because one is going to meet its maker this weekend in such a fashion. Swamplot has the details.

At 7:10 on November 11th, the Crowne Plaza Hotel across the street at 6701 Main will come down in a cloud of dust, to the cheers of onlookers able to sneak into prime viewing areas -- such as the south side of the soon-to-be-the-former John O'Quinn Medical Tower. If you're an explosives fan but don't have that kind of access to medical-office space, you can try the view from Southgate, east of Travis.

Fannin and Main Streets will be closed from Dryden to Holcombe starting at 6:30 a.m.

Click over to see their suggestion for the best spot from which to watch the carnage. And as always with things in the Medical Center area, take the train and avoid the hassles of parking. Happy viewing!
