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.
