More restaurants will participate in Avondale’s Eat in the Streets this weekend, as the street event continues to grow in popularity.
Eat in the Streets returns!
Melt, Fancy’s on Fifth, Magic Cookie Dough, Taco Morro Loco, Avondale Burger Co. food truck and Spring Street Bar and Grill will join original Eat in the Street Avondale eateries on Friday, Sept. 11 and Saturday, Sept. 12. The hours for Sept. 11 will be 5 to 10:30 p.m. The hours for Sept. 12 will vary as different restaurants will be open for lunch starting at 11 a.m. and then dinner.
Also, 41st Street South between First and Third avenues South, Third and Fourth avenues South, and Fourth and Fifth avenues South will be blocked off to allow patrons to sit at tables in the streets. Crews wills start to block off streets around 3 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 11.
Mask ordinance in effect
A mask ordinance remains in effect for the whole state because of Covid-19. People are required to wear masks but may remove them to eat and drink at the outdoor tables and chairs. Carryout will also be available.
Eat in the Streets was first held in Avondale in July as a way to allow patrons to enjoy food outdoors while still social distancing during the pandemic. Downtown restaurants participated in August. Because patrons and businesses have welcomed the concept with such a big response, Eat in the Streets is expected to continue this fall. Dates on future Eat in the Streets and its locations will be announced soon.
Food and entertainment
While access to Eat in the Street is free, Avondale Brewing Co. will charge $7 for fans to catch The Pearl at its stage at 7:30 p.m. on Friday night. The stage is behind Avondale Brewing Co. However, access to see DJ Mark AD on Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. at Avondale Brewing Co. will be free.
