Rocking the Block
Gratis pony rides on a city street? Yup, there’s that and much more at the annual block party hosted by South Street Diner, the Leather District’s longtime 24/7 go-to spot for everything from brioche French toast and banana walnut pancakes to cheese quesadillas and specialty burgers served with toppings ranging from fried egg to avocado. Held just outside the restaurant on September 15 from 2–6 p.m., the family-friendly, no-cost event also offers face painting, cartoonists, ice cream and crowd-pleasing tunes courtesy of DJ Spinelli. Owner Sol Sidell joins the festivities, personally handing out hot dogs, hamburgers and beverages to hundreds of his loyal customers—and anyone else that enjoys having a good time for free.
