Island vacations are still out of reach for many of us, but “don’t worry, be happy,” because NuLu is transforming into one this weekend. The south side streets on Hancock, Clay and Shelby will be closed on Saturday for “limbo contests, BBQ roasts, music, games and island hopping.” Meanwhile, the Get Leid in NULU cocktail competition will be happening throughout the event, with neighborhood restaurants striving to create the perfect summer drink. Vote for your favorite by posting to social media with #GetLeidat and the name of the bar or restaurant you’re at.
