Gibbes Museum hosts 10th annual street party this May with more than 30 local restaurants

From Edmund's Oast to The Establishment

by Mary Scott Hardaway

Each spring, the Gibbes throws the most epic street party on the peninsula, with bites and sips from local chefs and bartenders, plus live music and themed entertainment  — i.e. a dancing dragon snaking through 2016's Year of the Gibbes fete. This year's theme is "Light up the Night" (which we are certain is not an open invitation to 'light one up' FYI) but rather, as the Gibbes explains it, a theme which "showcases the Gibbes' dynamic space in a whole new light — under the night sky." With an "all-star" lineup of more than 30 local restaurants as well as an open bar, there will be plenty of  revelry to be had.
