The Capitol Hill Block Party kicked off one hour ago, and I walked up the hill to check it out.
So far, the only thing going on is security folks being kind of obnoxious. No music, no vendors, just guys in black shirts running around saying “you can’t walk here!” and “you can’t walk there!” while glaring at you in their most humorous, trying-to-be-intimidating pose.
Given its $30/day price tag, I think I’m going to skip going inside the fences Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, The Posies play, and I plan on seeing them. I was a little more excited a few months ago, but I’ve gotten street partied out over the last few weeks.
In any event, the party runs from today until Sunday, July 25th.
