Bryan Park Neighborhood Block Party, Friday, Aug. 20

Our annual block party is this Friday, Aug. 20, from 6-9 p.m., in the 1000 block of S. Palmer (between Davis and Allen). Join new and old neighbors in a new location to celebrate the end of summer.

Enjoy the sounds of local band Craig Brenner & Friends ( They will play blues, jazz and boogie woogie for dancing in the street. Also, our neighbor Joe Lee will perform his Cirque du Jolais clown performance for the kids.

Nick's English Hut is graciously providing Nick's Burgers, their new Black Bean Burgers and hotdogs for the grill. BPNA will supply drinks, condiments, plates and plasticware. Neighborhood history books, as well as t-shirts and chef's aprons will be for sale.

Bring a favorite side dish to share. If you are able, please bring your $5 yearly membership dues. Pass the word to your neighbors!

Funding provided in part through the City of Bloomington's Housing and Neighborhood Improvement Grant program.

Special thanks to Nick's English Hut!

Nick’s English Hut would be proud to be known as your core neighborhood restaurant/bar. We established ourselves in 1927 and have been growing to meet the needs of our customers ever since.

Lots of our customers know us for our large selection of local foods, great salads, homemade soups, strombolis and pizza. Others come for our fresh salmon baked to perfection in our cast iron skillet or our famous Nick’s Burgers. Then there is the after 10 pm crowd who come in to play ‘Sink the Biz’ or enjoy our libations.

Look for managing owner and dedicated chef Gregg Rago and his wife Susan Bright walking their dogs in the Bryan Park neighborhood, or look for them at Nick’s where they spend their time making ‘the Hut’ a better place to patronize.

We look forward sharing our Nick’s Burgers and recently created Black Bean Burgers at the picnic on August 20. If you can’t make the picnic be sure to walk or ride your bike to your neighborhood place to eat and drink! We are located at 423 E. Kirkwood Ave. You can reach us at 332-4040.
