Here at Dumpling Tzar, our festival presence continues this weekend with the Capitol Hill Block Party! For 20 years, the Capitol Hill Block Party has been celebrating community, music and arts in the heart of Seattle. CHBP starts on Friday, July 22nd and make no mistake; this isn’t your average summer block party. With headliners like Odesza on Saturday night and CHVRCHES on Sunday night, this year is poised to exceed expectations for festival goers. The party is an all ages event with certain stages inside the 21+ beer gardens.
For our part, we are excited to once again be a food vendor at the party. We will be in the Food Truck Lot for the entire weekend, serving up hot dumplings as always. Since we opened our Capitol Hill Dumpling Tzar location, we have been actively building relationships with residents and business in the neighborhood. Along with our presence in the Food Truck Lot, our restaurant and bar located in the 12th Ave Arts building will be open regular hours for those who want to sit down and enjoy a craft cocktail or specialty beer with their dumplings. Happy hour will be from 3PM to 6PM and 11PM-1PM as usual, plus seasonal drink specials!
Here’s a couple quick tips for navigating your weekend;
1. Anyone familiar with the neighborhood knows that even on a regular Friday or Saturday night, parking is limited. We recommend finding alternative transport such as the Link Light Rail, Metro Bus or riding your bike (make sure you have a good lock!).
2. The festival will be happening rain or shine, and you can check the CHPB Facebook for updates. Based on the weather report though, it will be a hot sunny good time.
3. You’re not allowed to bring opened drinks or food when you enter the grounds, but you can bring empty water bottles with you. If you don’t want to spend money on plastic bottles of water, bring your own and fill it up inside the festival grounds. Make sure you stay hydrated and cool to avoid heat stroke!
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone and enjoying everything that the Capitol Hill Block Party has to offer this weekend! Stay safe and party hard, friends!
