Tonight: McCarter’s Block Party

This really sounds like fun — a community-wide Block Party on the Front Lawn on Wednesday, August 24 from 5 to 9 p.m., with live music — featuring two of my favorite musicians (one pictured) in the Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra, directed by Joe Bongiovi, and one of my favorite catering companies, Blue Diamond Que.

To quote the press release:

This free, fun night of entertainment and community bonding will include dancing under the stars with members of Fred Astaire Dance Studio to live music of the Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra, featuring the finest high school and college jazz musicians in the Greater Philadelphia and New Jersey regions; and opportunities to win fabulous prizes and tickets to McCarter’s 2011-2012 season. Bring the kids for spin art, face painting and activities with JaZams, Princeton’s locally owned and operated independent toy store.

There will also be vendor food items for purchase from Bitter Bob’s BBQ, Blue Diamond Que, Carter & Cavero Old World Olive Oil, Chambers Walk, Chez Alice Catering, Dish Catering, elements, Emily’s Café & Catering, Jen’s Cakes & Pastries, Jimmy Duffy’s Catering, Mediterra, Olsson’s Fine Foods, and Uncle LouisG’s Italian Ices. There will also be a cash bar offering beer, wine and other refreshing beverages.

When I post about an event, I don’t always get to go to it. This one, I’m determined to attend!
