Official Unofficial Dean Street Block Party Tomorrow!
The Dean Street Block Club (comprised of residents of Dean between Franklin and Bedford) was denied a permit to close the street for their annual block party (the grapevine has it that police are concerned about the recent spate of shootings and the general tendency of block parties to spark violence), but that hasn't stopped them from hosting a stoop/sidewalk party tomorrow from 12-7pm. I'm going to miss it, sadly, but I hope it's a great event. After all the stress of the past month, the smell of good food on the grill and the shouts of children playing sound like the just what the doctor ordered. Check it out if you're in the neighborhood!
