2 years after the landfall of Hurricane Sandi, the last remnants of the ill-fated Las Pegasus Unicon have been swept away; as the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas has closed its doors after 60 years in business. The Hotel, which notoriously threw congoers out on their asses in the desert, is itself out on its ass in the desert.
This of course means one thing:
Your stockpile of Unicon Bits is now officially worth the same as Riviera Casino Chips.
In 2010, the Riviera filed for Bankruptcy, which in retrospect was a red flag for future events.
The hotel, which stands as a reminder of the Fandom-Hell that was the year 2013, will actually be demolished...with a convention center built in its place.
Rumors are circulating of a revival movement, for another pony convention to be held in Las Vegas in the future. Would they dare hold it on the grave of the Riviera?
Time will tell.s
