What’s up party people?
The Urban Vibrancy Institute (UVI), a nonprofit dedicated to uplifting small businesses and community members, will host a downtown San Jose block party tomorrow, May 18, and you’re invited.
The effort will drive awareness to the many local businesses by featuring 30+ shops, bars, eateries, and other retailers in Fountain Alley and the Historic District. Each will offer various deals, activities, and specials starting at 5:30 p.m.
You can also look forward to live music from:
- Eastside Funk (Fountain Alley) — an 8-piece ensemble that fuses jazz, funk, Latin, and R&B
- Andre Thierry (Fountain Alley) — a Grammy-nominated Kreole American musician playing accordion soul music
- Jackie Turner and Friends (Historic District) — a 5-piece gospel band led by SF native Jackie Turner
- Sweet HayaH (Historic District) — a SJ-based band that blends rock, soul, and funk
See participating businesses on UVI’s website and come ready to eat, drink, and dance.
