Ready for a good old-fashioned block party, San Francisco style? Excellent, because the PARTY ON BLOCK 18 is coming soon. The biennial event comes to us Saturday September 29th, from 12pm-6pm. Eighteenth Street between Guerrero and Dolores will be closed to cars, and the businesses along the block will be offering some delicious things to eat, as well as a jolly good time. Namu Gaji will be serving short rib tacos, Bi-Rite will have meat loaf sandwiches, and Kasa will offer mango lassis and and kati rolls. Wine and beer from local producers will be available for purchase too. There will also be a pie-baking contest open to all amateur bakers who want to try their hand at the perfect dessert.
Contestants can purchase tickets for $20, and further details about pie categories will be mailed upon entry. You can purchase food and drink tickets now in books of $20, and all proceeds will benefit Buen Dia Family School, 826 Valencia, 18 Reasons, Nextcourse, Holy Family Day Home, and The Women’s Building.
