Starting Friday, July 24, restaurants and bars in the Central West End are expanding their patios into the street to increase operations and provide a safe dining experience this summer. These “streateries” will be open along Euclid Avenue on Fridays and Saturdays from 5-10 p.m. All operations will be carried out in alignment with guidance from the City’s public health officials. Social distancing guidelines will be in place and masks will be required at all times when social distancing is not possible. There will also be additional hand washing stations at the ends of each dining section for patrons.
During these times, the following sections of Euclid Avenue will be closed to traffic:
- Euclid North of McPherson to the first alley
- Euclid South of McPherson to the first alley
- Euclid North of Maryland to Carriage Lane/the first alley North of Maryland (5-10 p.m. only)
Maryland, McPherson, and all alleys will remain open. Adequate pedestrian clearance will be required on the sidewalks and participating businesses are required to follow ALL city guidelines for operating at this time. The CWE’s North Community Improvement District will ensure that the street is opened back up each night by 10:30 pm. More info about the program can be found here on CWEScene website.
CWE Scene has announced details for Tuesday’s Fat Tuesday Celebration in the neighborhood. Starting at 3:30 p.m., three local high school bands will perform on various street corners throughout the CWE.

Saint Boogie will start at the corner of Washington and Euclid, and boogie down Euclid, stopping to play with each high school band along the way. After the groups play together, Saint Boogie will parade (on the sidewalks) around the CWE, ending at West Pine and Euclid. They will encourage people to join in from the start at Washington all the way to 1764 Public House, stopping to enjoy all the music along the way. They will also be judging each band for an unofficial “battle of the bands” between the 3 groups.
Many neighborhood restaurants will be offering Fat Tuesday specials too. Be sure to get out and enjoy the celebration.
