My buddy TK and I are checking out the Bedford Street Promenade this Saturday, the first of three days this month when the street shows its summer stripes. You can join us Saturday, June 12th or check it out June 19th or 26th. The event runs from 4-11pm.

So what's so special about the Promenade?

Refreshments. With sponsors like Dos Equis, Newcastle Brown Ale and Yellow Tail Reserve, you figure drinks will be had.

Music. 95.9 The Fox and the winners of the Battle of the Bands contest bring the music. Those bands will be battling for the chance to open at Alive @ 5 - three winners take that prize. Your music lineup looks like this:

June 12 — Cadillac 9 vs Ten Feet Deep
June 19 — Superband vs PANA!
June 26 — Dexter Scott vs The Woulda Coulda Shouldas

You can see videos of the bands at the site linked above and read more about Cadillac 9 and Ten Feet Deep on the DSSD blog.

Ambiance. Bedford will be closed to traffic for the night and you'll get to enjoy unending sidewalk cafes.

Come join us, drink up, spend money, get our local economy in shape for summer!

I am soooo excited about this!
We have a baby b-day party earlier in the day, so hope the kid will be fresh enough for an early dinner out!

It was fun! The Battle of the Bands music was excellent and outdoor dinner at Santella's was great. Very cool sidewalk chalk art, kids playing, good stuff all around!
