Put Up Your Dukes Tacoma!

Not suppose to put up a sign about Fight Club

Has anyone else noticed folks around town a little more bloodied and bruised than normal (and I'm not talking economically)? If so, this could very well be the reason.

I certainly hope this is a joke but, hey, maybe it's a good way for folks to let some aggression out or a way for us to train sticking up for our fair city. I'll stick to blogging.

You just found this place? Man, it was all over the Marcato marketing efforts.

Nothing says "Punch me" like a bow tie.

Maybe it is time to rally around the "Fight Club" building to see if we can save it. It must be an important part of Tacoma's heritage.

SAVE THE FIGHT CLUB BUILDING!

Quick, somebody get on the hotline to Historic Tacoma!

Call the LeMay Car Museum! That's a vintage Chevy Cargo Van!

Don't talk about it!

Just do it....

I'll round up my posse (well, maybe give some hobos a couple of bucks) and get some picketers out in front of the Fight Club building. I need some good sign ideas.

Good suggestions. I like in particular the one that says don't let the fight club move to seattle.

It may be the Fight Club building today but I'll fondly remember it as Kenny's Grocery and the Asako Barber Shop.

The building during the 1920's, you'll notice it has lost several stories:

Thanks Crenshaw. It is a poor shadow of itself now.

From the Tacoma Public Library picture archives:

The Lorenz Building, 1552-56 Market St. The Lorenz Building was constructed in 1889 and was designed by architect R. L. Robertson. From 1899- 1914, it was home to the Astor House, also known as the Hiroshimaya Hotel, the first major Japanese Hotel in Tacoma. In the mid 1920's, the building housed the Columbus Hotel and the Tacoma Ju Jitsu School.

A bit more about the building can be found at one of our favorite sitesL

About

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
