Block party The Lower Burnet business district, which requests that you refer to it as “Lo-Burn,” will be holding a big open house / block party this Saturday, October 8, and it looks like it will be a lot of fun. Over 60 businesses will be opening their doors, with family-friendly events, food, music, special sales, and prizes to be had. There are so many businesses participating that it’s impossible to list them all, but here are some highlights: Assistance League Thrift House will be giving away balloons and will have a bouncy house (free) out front, Knife Sharpist will be holding tomahawk throwing demonstrations and lessons (!) all day, La Sombra will have special $3 appetizers outside as well as a free wine tasting, Conway Chair Massage will have free chair massages, and Man Bites Dog will have complimentary iced tea and hot dog sampling! And these are just a few of the businesses participating. You can see the district’s facebook page here.
