Sad you don't have room for all those summer parties you were planning? City Winery and Finger on the Pulse, thankfully, have plenty of space to spare by shutting down Varick Street and hosting all of us for their second annual Block Party Blowout. The party will feature some of the best musical artists, including Ramesh (ex-Voxtrot), Rewards (DFA), and Fletcher Johnson, with DJ sets by Alex Pasternak (Lemonade), and a special VIP-hour DJ set from the hosts of Snacky Tunes. Food will be provided by David Burke, Garrett Oliver, Maharlika, Big Gay Ice Cream, Amali, Empire Mayo, Maison Premiere, and Ty-Lor Boring. After three hours of music and eight courses (one from each chef), we’ll be requesting a special EMT escort.
