Avondale restaurants had such a good experience with Eat in the Streets in July, that they are bringing it back this weekend.
Eat in the Streets returns
Eight businesses are scheduled to participate in Eat in the Streets in Avondale on Friday, Aug. 14 and Saturday, Aug. 15. The hours for Aug. 14 will be 5 to 11 p.m. The hours for Aug. 15 will be 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Also, 41st Street South between First and Third avenues South will be blocked. Restaurants will still serve food and the street will still be blocked it rains.
Wear a mask when not eating or drinking
Eat in the Streets was first held on July 10-11 as a way to allow patrons to enjoy food outdoors while still social distancing during the pandemic. A mask ordinance remains in effect for the whole state because of Covid-19, so attendees must wear masks when not eating or drinking in the area. People may eat at the outdoor tables and chairs or do carryout.
“That first weekend for Eat in the Streets was a really big win for Avondale, and we are looking forward to doing it again this weekend,’’ said Taylor Lander, director of events and marketing at Avondale Brewing Co. and president of the Forest Park South Avondale Merchants Association. “The merchants are excited and appreciate the support from the city and patrons.’’
Bands will perform on the Avondale Brewing Co. stage at 7 p.m. on both nights. Earthbound will perform on Friday, and Manic Vision will perform on Saturday. Both performances will be free. Also, a DJ will appear on the stage at Avondale Common House on Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m.
