Beverly Block Party to feature eating, drinking and dancing on Cabot Street

Beverly party to feature eating, drinking and dancing on Cabot Street

BEVERLY — People will be taking to the streets in Beverly this weekend — not to protest, but to party.

Cabot Street will be shut down for the sheer fun of it, so people can enjoy live music, food and refreshments at The Block, a block party in the heart of Garden City.

They will also be celebrating the fact that three such block parties are being held this year instead of two, with similar events to follow in August and October.

In addition, everyone should be happy because they won’t have to drink beer and wine behind a fence this year, in the beer and wine garden, but may wander wherever they want in the blocked-off street.

“If everyone behaves, we can let people move about the entire area with their adult beverages,” said Gin Wallace, director of Beverly Main Streets, which is hosting the block parties.

Wherever partiers wander in the closed-off area, which opens at 5:30 p.m., they will also find something good to eat.

“There will be 10 restaurants set up right on Cabot street in tents,” said Heather Wolsey, head of marketing at Beverly Main Streets. “They’ll be serving some of their special menu items, which are easy to eat when you’re outside walking around.

“Fibber McGee’s will have steak tip subs and sausage subs. Prides Osteria is going to be coming with caprese sandwiches.”

There will also be coffee, cupcakes and cookies from Atomic Cafe, gourmet chicken Parmesan sandwiches served by Bellamia, and burritos, platos and tortas from La Victoria Taqueria.

Winfrey’s Fudge will serve up their signature, fresh fudge, and Rowand’s Seafood will dish out some lobster rolls.

Soma will have pizza, with a variety of toppings, while The Wild Horse will put together pulled-pork sliders and coleslaw.
