On Sunday, Oct. 2 from noon to 6 p.m. The Bullfrog Cajun Bar and upcoming restaurant Butcher & The Boar will host the first 12th & Hennepin Block Party, featuring live music from bands The 4onthefloor, Dave King Trucking Company and more.

Butcher & The Boar, the new restaurant by ex-Dakota chef Jack Riebel, is scheduled to open before the end of the year. Riebel has teased that some of the upcoming restaurant’s food will be available during the block party. The restaurant will focus on what Riebel calls “craft food” as well as craft beer and bourbons.

The block party will be held in the parking lot behind the east side of the 1100 block of Hennepin Avenue, which just so happens to be home to The Journal. Minnesota Premiere Publications, The Journal’s parent company, is located between The Bullfrog and Butcher & The Boar.
