Sip on Champagne, rosé, IPAs at Hawthornes Block Party.

Hawthornes Café's annual boozy block party was supposed to happen in May, but due to weather the event was pushed back. On Saturday, July 1, the free-to-attend event will finally happen.

There will be plenty of hops – as always – but this year there will be sweet and bubbly selections, too. IPAs, Champagne and rosé will be available all day. Just remember to bring cash to the day drinking festival.

Near the Hawthornes Café entrance, at 11th and Fitzwater streets, drink tickets will be sold for $5 each. Attendees can redeem tickets at any drink station to receive the alcoholic beverage of their choice (and there's a lot of choices).

Some of the notable IPAs available include Half Acre Vallejo's "Orangey" IPA with tropical fruit flavors, Founders Lemmondrop IPA and Ballast Point Unfiltered Sculpin.

As for food, there will be ribs, churros, Italian sausage, veggie burgers and other foods easy to eat on the go.

Families who bring kids along can enjoy the Kid Zone where there will be bubble wands, chalk, bean bag toss, hula hoops, face painting and an inflatable slide. Pets are also welcome to the outdoor celebration.

Throughout the day, there will be music by bands and DJs.

In the event of inclement weather (again), the rain date is Sunday, July 2.
