I'm a Munjoy Hill resident and I'm guilty of breezing through Inner Washington Avenue on my way to and from other parts of the peninsula without giving much attention to the many businesses on either side of the street. There's so much to experience on this block.

On Saturday, July 1st from noon to 5 p.m. you can come and celebrate what makes Inner Washington so great at the Inner Washington Block Party.

This inaugural event will feature live music from Red Eyed Fox and Muddy Ruckus as well as food, drinks, and shopping by the incredible eateries, watering holes, and businesses along the block.

If you've ever wanted to try any of these places, this event is a great way to try 'em all.
