Friday Block Parties On Ann Street

The Hartford Courant

Nearly every Friday night through Halloween, the three bars on Hartford's Ann Uccello Street — the Russian Lady, the Tavern Downtown and Rocking Horse Saloon — team up to throw a killer summer block party from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Festival Fridays feature a different theme every week as you party under the stars with live music and games and food, or venture inside one of the three venues, each with a different feel.

Upcoming themes are; on Sept. 5 it's a 1/2 Way to Mardi Gras party; Sept. 12 is a Football Fest; a Redneck Romp is scheduled for Sept. 19; a beer fest is featured on Sept. 26; and on Oct. 31, prepare for a Nightmare on Ann Street. There is no block party on Aug. 29 because of the Labor Day weekend.

Admission is free until 9 p.m., when the fee becomes $5 until 10 p.m. After that, entry will cost you $10. Information: 860-247-5239 or
