back in business

the LA Derby Dolls are no longer homeless! as of last weekend, we are the proud occupants of a ginormous warehouse at 1910 Temple Ave., just west of Alvarado (the neighborhood is Historic Filipino Town, and we are adjacent to Silver Lake and Echo Park). capacity has been tentatively set at 1600. holy shit! maybe now our games won't sell out days in advance (though it would be pretty amazing if they still did).

the inaugural bout in our new home is slated for november 17, sirens v. tough cookies. i'll let you know know when tickets become available.

in the meantime, here are some pics from last weekend's move-in and track build:





we haven't settled on a name for our new digs, which will serve as a practice space, administrative HQ and bout venue. "temple of the dolls" (in honor of the temple street location) and "the doll factory" are currently league favorites. what do you guys think?

RIP Doll House. This new place sounds a lot nicer but still, fuck the Little Tokyo Shopping Center for kicking you guys out.

I like the name "Doll Factory"
