The anarchic bohemia of drinking an ice cold Rainier from a brown paper sack on a city street powered the third annual Summit Block Party to another successful free and wonderful and slightly later than planned crescendo Saturday night. Pictures of the fun times are below.
Admission was free except for those who also attended Capitol Hill Block Party — their $61.11 admission price for the July festival has now been prorated to $30.56.
CHS told you here about the past, present, and uncertain future of the annual DIY and fully local block party. And here we visited the Summit Inn — symbolic clubhouse of the avenue where halfway houses and Capitol Hill-relative affordable apartment living meet. Saturday as temperatures reached the 80s, revelers and residents found mini-skate ramps, Parker Edison performing atop a van, the Bad Tats stripping in the street, and The Pharmacy playing its final show ever.

@SBPSeattle Your website says you’re done at 9:30. Could you pass it on to whoever is onstage?
