Sands Implosion Marks End of an Era

By Linda Tancs

Sands Casino in Atlantic City, once the stomping grounds for such luminaries as Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack, is slated for implosion tomorrow at 9:30 p.m. amidst much pomp and flurry, including fireworks.   Aside from marking the end of a celebrity-infused era of glitz and glamor, the demolition is somewhat symbolic considering A.C.’s shaky economic footing these days.  So far this year, casino revenue is down nearly five percent.  Only time will tell if Pinnacle’s new luxe property will help improve the bottom line.  And so we salute the grand old Sands with a trivia question (answer to be posted tomorrow):  who was the last performer to grace the stage at Sands?
