Friday Links: What’s happening on the Near East Side

As always, there’s lots happening on the Near East Side. Here are just a few things you may want to check out!

Central Community House and First English Lutheran Church are again teaming up for a summer full of Friday night block parties. The next block party is tonight, June 21st from 5:30-7 PM at the corner of Main and 22nd. Two more block parties will be held on July 26th and August 23rd. Join us for food, music, dancing, and games for all ages!

On June 28th from 1-3:30 PM kids can catch a free showing of the movie Red Tails and get a chance to meet the Tuskegee Airmen at Driving Park Recreation Center!

Be sure to save the date for this year’s Summer Tour of Historic Homes, featuring homes in Franklin Park. This year’s tour will be on July 14th from 1-6 PM. You can purchase tickets here.

Have you seen this video put out by local business, Yellow Brick Pizza? Head on over and get a taste of their famous Gator Pie yourself. Who knows, you may even catch a glimpse of the Yeastie Boys!

Need some help beating the heat? Checkout Blackburn Recreation Center’s newly renovated spray ground! It’s a great place to take the kids to cool off.

No need to travel outside the Near East Side to fill your grocery list. The Near East Side Cooperative Market recently opened at the corner of Oak and Ohio. Stop in for a selection of fresh produce, dairy, drinks, and healthy packaged goods, many of which are locally sourced. While you’re there, grab some seafood for dinner from Oak St. Meats. Visit the Co-ops website to find out how to become a member!
