Fans of the Lexington Club have organized to get a plaque in place to mark the Lexington Club’s place in the Mission with a commemorative plaque on the corner of 19th and Lexington.

Here’s a message from them and a ┬álink to their fund:

When the Lexington announced it was closing, a few of us in the community who “grew up” at The Lex got together to figure out how to do this. We contacted Campos’ office, which was excited by the idea, and a plan was put into motion.

A couple of weeks ago the Board of Supervisors passed a resolution recognizing the bar’s cultural significance which gave us permission to install the plaque in the city sidewalk. So us community volunteers put the plaque into production and we’re now busy pulling permits, scheduling contractors, working with various city boards, etc. hoping to get this all done by the time the bar closes next week.

But this isn’t paid for by the city– it has to be done with private funds. So we’re fundraising here.

Any monies that don’t go to the production/install will be given to Dolores Street Community Services.
