Why You MUST Hit Up The Thirth Party
What are you up to the day before July 4th? I'm hoping you're gonna say without any hesitation, "Attending the 10th annual 3rth of July party in East Nashville." You better believe that's where I'll be.
In case you don't know the answer to the question "what is the Thirth?" ...Each year, on the third of July, East Nashville shuts down North 12th Street between Ordway and Calvin for a huge block party that brings out hundreds of friends and neighbors. The event costs $15, which gets you lots of great live music and all the Yazoo beer you can safely drink. You're encouraged to bring cash for food and to tip your bartenders. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to a local charity.I love this event and look forward to it every year--probably even more so than I look forward to July 4--because it feels like one big, overgrown house party that just happened to spill out onto the street. I'm sponsoring the Thirth again, so please look out for me while you're there.Besides coming to see me, here are some more reasons why the Thirth party needs to go on your calendar now:1) You won't want to miss the 10th anniversary of East Nashville's favorite block party.2) You need to hear the musical stylings of Scott Carter, Thee Phantom 5ive, Shut Up, The Lonely H, and The Coal Men.3) You can gobble up eats from Eat Well Market, Izzie's Ice, BBQ and Burgers by Jimmy Carl's BBQ.4) You can drink on beer by Yazoo Brewery.5) Your friends will be there. And your new friends--the ones you haven't met yet--will be there, too.The music will begin Wednesday, July 3 at 5 p.m. For up to date news about the Thirth party, keep checking in with the event's Facebook page.
