The 2010 18th Street Block Party (NSFV)

Seeing as how our analytics are telling me that people who are searching for “18th Street Block Party” are constantly being referred to this post about the same block party from two years ago, we felt it would be prudent to provide a little bit of an update.

If you’re not busy from 12-5pm this Saturday, August 28th, 2010, stop by 18th Street between Guerrero and Dolores for the 2nd Bi-Annual Party on Block 18.  There’ll be tasty bites from all sorts of local vendors and restaurants (like Delfina Pizzeria, Out the Door, and Kasa, the Indian place up the street), a pie-baking contest (categories are fruit and other–who knows what savory concoctions will be revealed?), and beer from the SF Brewers Guild (no need to rely on Cold Beer, Cold Water, as Andrew Dalton points out).  All the proceeds go to benefit the Women’s Building (and their daring rooftop dancers), BuenDia Family School, 826 Valencia, Next Course, and Pie Ranch.

Also, I don’t think they will be roasting a whole pig this time around (that photo was from the festivities two years ago), so the actual party should be safe for vegans–unlike this post!

  1. Buen Dia Family School? That’s a private pre-school that costs about $20k per year. It’s right in the neighborhood, sure, and I’m all for this fundraiser/party, but I think I’d rather my dollars go to orgs that are a bit more…needy? Maybe next time Sam et. al. can find a way to incorporate Mission High and make them the beneficiary…

  2. ooeygooey it’s not $20K — it’s more like $12K. I know it’s still a lot but it’s a lot also because that amount offsets the fees paid by lower income families; and the fundraiser is to pay for scholarships for poor kids so they can attend a preschool there.
