- Pork belly banh mi from Duck N Roll. More delicious looking than the bands.
Just when you thought the season for outdoor music and food was over, the Empty Bottle announces its very first block party. Music, Friendly, Food Trucks
(a take on the "Music Friendly Dancing" slogan on the venue's awning) celebrates local food, beer, and music on Sun 10/21 from 11 AM till 5 PM on Cortez just east of Western (at the Bottle's corner, basically). Four great rootsy rock and pop acts will play, with music starting at noon: the Shams Band, Quarter Mile Thunder, My Blue Valentine, and Jenny Dragon. Food trucks on the scene will include Duck N Roll, Brown Bag Lunch Truck, and Bridgeport Pastry, and beer will be provided by Revolution Brewing. I'll probably spend the next three nights dreaming about that pork belly bahn mi from Duck N Roll. Ticketing info after the jump.
Admission is a $5 suggested donation, but for $15 you're guaranteed to get in even if the party hits capacity—and you can go to the Shearwater, Judson Claiborne, and Daniel Knox show at the Bottle later that night. What a bargain!
