Nifty’s fifty block party

the Cottage restaurant is hosting a Nifty ’50s Block Party fundraiser to stop the proverbial fat lady from singing. There’ll be plenty of vendors on hand with vintage merch, as well as artists ready to paint you up like a postcard from 1955. But the big attractions will be the contests. In addition to a classic car competition, partygoers can compete in dance and karaoke contests. There’s no admission, but a $5 donation to the playhouse gets you a free hot dog and soda or domestic draft beer. Happy days may not be here again yet. But for a few hours we can forget about 2009. Daddy-o. The shoo-be-doo-woppin’starts at 6 p.m. at the Cottage (522 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth). Call 561-586-6410, visit or for more info contact us here via our email at [email protected]
