    Am I weird that I still don’t think it’s a good idea for group gatherings like these Block Parties?

      Everything mentioned here is outdoors, fyi.

    Will there be food vendors at the block party or are only local restaurants offering discounts? Hoping for some street food tonight!

      We just went through. Didn’t see any. The street is not closed – the performers are along the sidewalk, in front of businesses.

    Does anyone know what time the drive-up USPS Blue Box at the post office on California gets picked up? I put my ballot in this afternoon, but didn’t look at the pick-up time first. Now I’m worried my ballot won’t be postmarked today.

    CHP, their website doesn’t clearly specify the outside collection box, but it does say 5:00pm under Last Collection Hours.  Fingers crossed for you!

Sorry, comment time is over.
