While laying out his argument for why the Bauhaus block deserves special effort to preserve its buildings, Rob Ketcherside brought up another important element of E Pine’s past.
Aside: I remember a video game arcade on that lot that was demolished but can’t remember the rest… anyone?
He was talking about the block of E Pine that now is home to the Press building. CHS Facebook friend Matthew O’Brien remembered the Hi-Score:
I was hanging out at Hi Score one of the nights that the 1999 WTO protests was going on. Tear Gas isn’t cool. I was just chilling, playing some vids when all of the sudden the police shut us down.
But, better, he still has a t-shirt.
What’s your prized Capitol Hill shirt? Maybe this one will be a collector’s item someday, too.
