Perkins Road Hardware caught on fire tonight.  I heard sirens about 2 hours ago and Liz and I walked over.  The building is standing but it looks pretty bad.  There were about 5 - 6 fire trucks outside when we got there.

I love Perkins Rd Hardware.  The people are extremely nice and I pride myself in living in the only neighborhood in Baton Rouge that you can walk to a grocery store, hardware store, cleaners, drugstore, 5 wonderful restaurants, and 3 Bars.  They are all locally owned and really the only area in the city that does not look like a crappy strip mall. 

We have gotten our Christmas tree there every year and I hope to by next years there as well.
