The long time dream of Anthony Lauro of Anthony’s Cheesecake is finally becoming a reality. The First Annual Bloomfield Center Block Party kicks off at noon on May 14.
Lauro chose the location of the nationally recognized Anthony’s Cheesecake several years ago in part because of the revitalization of the area. When the first slices were served, there were still vacant and decaying buildings across the street from his Washington St restaurant, even then, Lauro envisioned a block party.
Flash forward several years and new tenants are moving into the new construction, existing businesses are thriving, and the dream of block party is coming true. Bloomfield Center is once again the place to see and be seen.
Hosted by the Bloomfield Center Alliance, the all-day affair will include food and drink, entertainment, and raffles.
More details will be shared as they become known, like us on Facebook to find out more about the Block Party and other Food News.
