Things to do for June 21, 2012
Gelato Sandwiches, Unlimited Crawfish and Brigitte Bardot
The weekend would like a snow cone.
Knocking 40% Off at Brooks Brothers
The haberdashers at Brooks Brothers know that your summer might yet call for a linen this, a seersucker that. Or, of course, a tie with little tiny snails on it. So they’re taking up to 40% off their entire stock in their semiannual sale. Just leave the wool alone.
30 Lost Photos of Brigitte Bardot
Yes, there was actually life before Kate Upton. For instance, French icon Brigitte Bardot. The evidence: these 30 photographs (many never before seen) on display at the Sofitel for your perusal as you sip your Bardot-themed cocktail. If only Mlle. Bardot had the Internet.
Bottomless Crawfish, Pig and Beer
Sometimes brunch is eggs Benedict and Bloody Marys. Other times—like Saturday at Pearl Dive—it’s endless pots of crawfish, roasted suckling pig, sides and Abita beer, all served family-style. Except the beer.
Behold: The Italian Ice Cream Sandwich
You take no issue with the Good Humor man, but that doesn’t make him above competition and market forces, either. The kind of market forces that slather all manner of gelato between slices of fresh, eggy brioche bread at Pitango. Besides, you can never have enough dessert sandwich options.
