Pizza Luce block party planned for August

To celebrate its 10th year in, business, Laura Siskind, general manager of Pizza Luce, 3200 Lyndale Ave. S., is planning a block party. She said the party would be held Saturday, Aug. 16, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Siskind said she's blocking off the small section of road that borders the business on West 32nd Street from Lyndale to Aldrich Avenue South. Siskind, who's worked at Pizza Luce from the beginning, got approval for the event from the CARAG neighborhood group at its June meeting.

The block party will feature six bands, with the main band taking the stage around 7 p.m. Siskind said the food will be provided by (of course) Pizza Luce, and in addition to beer and pizza, they'll have a meat-and-vegetable Bar-B-Que.
