As you know, those extremely well-organized neighbors on Elsie Street are having their big, blow-out block party this weekend, on Saturday, September 28.
Yet as destiny would have it, some nearby neighbors on Folsom (also at Eugenia) inadvertently conspired to organize their block party on the very same day! Neighbor Rebecca from Team Folsom writes:
Just to add to the block party drama, Folsom St (at Eugenia) is holding our first ever block party on this Saturday the 28th as well!
In direct competition to the Elsie St block party, we would like to offer . . .
The Folsom Street Almost-a-Real Block Party!
– A meager selection of store-bought desserts
– Spastic toddler dancers
– A boom box playing music
– Assorted chairs and tables
– Potentially a grill!
– A sign
– A real, approved permit!
– OK, actually, we do have a bouncy house too
– The physical site where the “Folson” sidewalk square resides – one-of-a-kind!
If real entertainment, home-cooked food and energetic volunteers is all too intimidating for you, mosey on over to our almost-party and say hello!
Truth be told, both block parties are just a short, professorial stroll apart along the Eugenia axis, so this scheduling quirk is actually a clustering win for all of Cortlandia. Why choose between Elsie and Folsom? Why not just go to both???
