Chicken John's Warehouse

Chicken’s warehouse has been home to many unique events over the years, including the long running Ask Dr. Hal Show. Early on the warehouse even served as a location for Laughing Squid Web Hosting tech support when Paul de Jong lived there.

Here’s what Chicken has to say about the sale of his warehouse:

I’m caught in the mortgage crisis by association. I took a 5 year arm mortgage with a balloon payment thinking I could re-finance. There are no loans today for Showman with non-conforming warehouses. So it goes on the block. Hell, I’ll even finance it…..

Chicken John Rinaldi For Dog Catcher

Here’s one more reason to buy the warehouse, it comes with a wonderful “Chicken John Rinaldi For Dog Catcher” mural painted by Loid Mongoloid.
