Elliott Bay Book Co.'s Official Opening April 15

Local book lovers, breathe a collective sigh of relief: Elliott Bay Book Company has safely relocated to its cozy, new Capitol Hill location. You can swing into the new shop today or show your love for the 36-year-old bibliophile haunt and cruise down to their opening day block party (co-hosted by Everyday Music) this Thursday. In addition to the food, libations and live music, rumor has it the city even plans to block Tenth Avenue (between Pike and Pine) just for the festivities. Don't miss this chance to help make store owner Peter Aaron's gamble for a smaller (20,000 square feet), quieter, but more accessible location pay off.

4/15. Free. 4 - 7 p.m. Elliott Bay Book Company, 1521 10th Ave.
