The Block is Hot

Welcome to The Block, where every other week we’re having a block party. If you don’t know what a block party is, it’s a gathering, it’s your home away from home. There’s culture, there’s consciousness, there’s a community around you. With The Block, you get one moment in your day where you feel connected, related to, and all-around loved. It’s about the vibes, and it’s a potluck of energies. Come as you are, bring what you can, and just vibe.
