My little Mid Beacon Hill neighborhood had its first annual Neighborhood Block Party tonight. Lots of people came.
We ate a bunch of food.
The guy in the Utilikilt told me that I looked like a friend of his back in Hungary. So we started talking about living in Eastern Europe, and I found out that a coworker of his in Budapest had been a coworker of mine in Prague.
The band Purdy Mouth (described by Three Imaginary Girls as "Seattle's only gay alt-country band") rocked the block.
The cutest 1-year-old boy in the whole world made an appearance.
"It's not a party till the cops show up."
Some firefighters showed up too, and they told us that our party was better than the Georgetown ones. Thanks, LM, for posing with them! And thanks to you and Rick for talking that nice band into playing for us and for setting up the grills and dealing with the mess and everything. And thanks to Eva for making the signs -- and generally just making the effort with everything -- and thanks to Linda for posting flyers and getting ice and stuff. You guys are the best neighbors!
