(Las Vegas, NV) — That wasn’t thunder you heard on the Las Vegas Strip this morning.The parking garage at O’Sheas casino was imploded this morning at 2:30 a.m.

The doors closed for good at the Irish-themed restaurant Monday at noon to make room for the $500 million Linq project being put together by Caesars Entertainment Group.

Project Linq will create 3,000 construction jobs, of which 1,800 will be permanent once the corridor is up and running.

Retail, dining, entertainment and an observation wheel will anchor the project.

A wing of The Tropicana was blown up last year. Other than that the implosion of O’Shea’s was the first since the New Frontier was imploded in 2007.
