Hiawatha Place S. prepares for Neighborhood Night Out….calling Jackson Place Neighbors.
Double Dutch Empire will be in attendance. 150+ new people jumped over the course of three days at the Capitol Hill Block Party + a Seattle Police Officer. Double Dutch Empire is all about teaching folks the joys of double dutch and jump rope in general. They aim to get every person jumping, from toddlers to grandparents and we have skilled teachers to make it happen. www.doubledutchempire.com
Lets see what JP can do in 3 hours, calling Jackson Place neighbors to come down and represent Hiawatha and join DDE in a jumpfest Tuesday Night 8/3 – 5:30 – 8:30pm. * maybe they will be able to get the Neighborhood Fire Dept Precinct to get their jump on too. http://lineout.thestranger.com/lineout/archives/2010/07/27/block-party-the-jump-roping-cop

update from the neighborhood:
Hiawatha is expecting many new residents due to the new developments on just one city block. Nova Town Home, Pontedera Condos, and the new resident artists for Fall at the Hiawatha Arts Lofts. “Our community is growing and the Night Out will give us a chance to enjoy one summer evening together to continue building it.” Neighbors are excited with the opportunity to not only share food, but fun. One Hiawatha resident artist will be doing tarot reading while neighbors are bringing their summer favorite sport badminton to street level, and of course the kids have a tradition of making a DIY street bike course.
Hiawatha welcomes more neighbors to stroll down to 843 Hiawatha Place. S (btwn S. Charles/Dearborn) after they enjoy their individual street potlucks. If your block is not having one and you are interested in participating in NIGHT OUT! please RSVP at Cafe Weekend in person as this is one part potluck one part grilled goodness thanks to Jackson Place Cohousing.
Jackson Place Business Association, Jackson Place Co-housing, & Cafe Weekend are the co-organizers for this years Hiawatha NIGHT OUT BLOCK PARTY!!
