The street will be shut down from Kenmore to Sheridan to allow for outdoor dining (and dancing if the mood strikes you) while enjoying live music. Visitors are encouraged to support Uptown’s local restaurants by either dining alfresco at the restaurants along Argyle, or by ordering take-out from nearby restaurants to bring with them to the event.
