    Hey Neighbors,

    My wife and I are curious, because we have seen no postings: is Phinney-Greenwood planning anything for this? I would love to get out into the neighborhood with all of you.

    Any block parties?

    Check out Seattle.gov website:

    Let me know,

    Best,

    Sean

    Sean,

    In years past, there have been many parties around the neighborhood on Night Out. Some are registered, some are not. If other blocks are like ours, you won't see posts because we have direct contact with our neighbors (email and/or flyers). There's likely more parties going on that you'll see listed on various Web sites because not everyone registers their block party (this is the first year that our was registered).

    If there's not a party on your block, it's not that difficult to organize one. In fact, it's one of the easiest parties you'll ever throw.

    If your block isn't having a party, take a stroll around the neighborhood. My bet is that you'll see a lot. If you're not so great at sniffing out a party, head over to the 500 block of N. 71st Street and you'll find the greatest group of neighbors in the neighborhood.

    Our block also doesn't put up flyers, but we do have a Yahoo group and everyone gets an email. New people on the block get a flyer in their mailbox. This all started not through the city or GAIN, but just through a few neighbors wanting to communicate better after a bunch of break ins (thus the Yahoo group) and get to know each other more.
