Rocking the block


The #RStreetBlockParty will have all the trappings of any self-respecting festival—live music, food, brewskis by local breweryskis, a kids' zone—but it'll also have 30 handmade-goods vendors, one of which makes crochet bikinis. If that's not a selling point, the block party will showcase Gallery 1810, in addition to its other tenants, including a barbershop-slash-bar. Sold! 3 p.m. Saturday, October 3; R and 12th streets;
