Las Pegasus Unicon is a shining example of what can go wrong with a convention that runs their financials badly. Invite every show staffer they can get, comp everything, and hope the numbers show up to pay for it. In a city like Vegas, that isn't surprising.You can read all about it over at our history post.
As of yesterday, the hotel it took place at is officially gone. The Riviera Hotel and Casino is nothing more than a pile of rubble after a successful demolition. You can watch that over here if you are bored.
Here's to hoping we never see a con explode as badly in the future!
Thanks to Sailor Sally for the heads up!
