Starting this Friday, July 31, South King will be closed to vehicle traffic between Market and Loudoun Streets. The closure will start at 3:30 in the afternoon and outdoor dining hours go from 4 to 10 p.m.

Each Friday and Saturday, select restaurants and bars will be invited to set up tables and chairs to create additional socially-distanced outdoor dining space on the closed street. This weekend, the establishments include Black Hoof Brewing Company, Delirium Café, Echelon Wine Bar, King Street Oyster Bar, Leesburg Gourmet and The Wine Kitchen.

The outdoor dining street closure will be weather permitting and run each weekend through October 24.
