Pending permits, the White Center business community is throwing a block party to benefit the eight businesses whose livelihoods were lost in the fire that took place on July 5. That fire is being investigated as an arson. Of those, only Rat City Tat2 has reopened. while The Lumberyard Bar has found a new location across the street it will take several months for the build out.
On Sunday, Aug. 29, the plan is to shut down the block between Roxbury Street and 98th Street SW for a party featuring local vendors in booths, food, a raffle, a bar and food crawl, live music at Drunky Two Shoes BBQ, and an auction. The hours would be 12 Noon to 5pm.
