LINCOLN SQUARE — If "block party" conjures up images of kids' inflatables, a questionable buffet and the worldwide debut of the neighbor kid's "band," you're going to have to adjust your picture for the bash organized by Bistro Campagne, Due Lire, the Grafton and Homesoul.
The inaugural "The Sunnyside of Lincoln Avenue" — all locations are situated between Wilson and Sunnyside avenues — is a celebration of eating, drinking, shopping and strolling set for 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Sept. 12.
For $50 per person — ages 21 and over — partygoers can partake of drinks and appetizers at each restaurant. Beverages will be served in each establishment but can be carried between storefronts.
Bistro Campagne, 4518 N. Lincoln Ave., will offer a sauvignon blanc and gin cocktail, along with the choice of an onion strudel or brandade croquettes (fried balls of salted cod fish).
Due Lire, 4520 N. Lincoln Ave., is serving up a Barbera red wine and prosecco cocktail, as well as gnocchi and pasta with peas and prosciutto.
The Grafton, 4530 N. Lincoln Ave., will have Great Lakes Imperial Porter and Oktoberfest beers on tap, with mini bangers and mash for chow.
Homesoul, 4526 N. Lincoln Ave., will host acoustic jazz and folk musicians and has plans to set up a streetside booth stocked with vintage finds, home accessories and works from local artists.
Only 150 tickets are available and can be purchased online.
