South Lake Union Block Party

There’s nothing like hot, sweaty people gathering together on a summer day to celebrate their neighborhood. Hence the South Lake Union Block Party. Festivities will include food vendors, farmers market, a burger cooking competition, wine tasting area ($12), and beer garden. On the music stage, Benjamin Doerr, Grand Hallway, and members of The Maldives are among the featured acts. Then at dusk (around 9 o’clock), an outdoor movie will be projected in accordance with a recent online poll (already concluded), so you can stick around for Waiting for Guffman, Footloose, or Raising Arizona. Come sweaty, leave happy, and you can ride the SLUT for both ends of the trip. BRITT THORSON
