Do It. Culver City Block Party.

It's just another hump day in the dog days of summer, but Culver City thinks it's time for a party. A block party to be exact, and on every third Wednesday of the month (aka today!) through to October, the city is holding a full-on event in its downtown area.

Downtown Culver City boasts some of the area's best dining, and many of those places are participating with some great deals. Akasha is offering 1/2 off all wines by the bottle, Ford's Filling Station is giving out sliders and a draft beer for just $10 (and a live performance of country cover musicians Christopher Hawley and the Rollers on the patio), and Rush Street has a $21 prix fixe menu all night, along with free pole dancing lessons upstairs until 9:30pm--now that's a party! Even Cold Stone is giving out free samples and offering two "Like It" creations for $6. I suggest heading over to BottleRock for their $4 food, wine and beer specials, or try and grab one of their specially-priced $20 bottles for the night.

But it's not all about eating: you can also hit up the Haro or WWA galleries, open during the block party, check out live music at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, or relax at the Wellness Spa with a $1/minute massage (10 minutes minimum).

It's a perfect excuse to check out the area, be outside and enjoy some great deals. Nothing like getting the neighborhood together for a good ole fashioned block party, right?

The Culver City Downtown Summer Block Party is every third Wednesday until October, from 5pm-9pm. Click here for a PDF of all the participating restaurants and shops.
