Best New Block Party

East End Fourth Fridays

The buzz is electric. Miss Eva's out tending to the bright white outdoor tents erected alongside the Victory Grill just for the occasion. The regular happy-hourers at Longbranch and diners at Dandelion are sticking around a little longer to see what's happening. And the bar at Ms. B's is spilling the smoothest (albeit muddled) mojitos and mint juleps and even smoother jazz. It's three week's after First Thursday, and it's time to head east, when the DiverseArts and the 11th Street East End corridor opens its heart and entertainment district for a night out on the town. There's spoken word, arts and crafts, feasts from all over the Eastside, fun for the whole family, and of course, music, music, music.
