Party at Star Plaza

When: Thu., Aug. 11 2011

That little piece of Playhouse Square property known as Star Plaza is more than just a patch of concrete: Today, it's an outdoor party palace, where you can dig some live jams, down a few brewskis, and snatch something sizzling off the grill. Part of the badly named but well conceived Blue Light Lime Outdoor Concert Series, today's happy-hour-type happenings include a performance by the Headliners, an all-star band of School of Rock students whose repertoire leans heavily on ol' time rock & roll. Plenty of games, prizes, and drink specials round out the fun. It all happens from 5 to 8 p.m. and admission is free. — Kelly Maile Euclid Ave. at East 14th, 216-771-4444,
