There’s Champagne in These Disco Balls

Big Hats and Bourbon Ice Cream on a Rooftop

DOUBLE TAKE

Bocce and Bollywood at Two Very Different Birthday Parties

Restaurant birthday parties are better than regular birthday parties, because restaurant birthday parties have pig roasts. At least Saint Lou’s Assembly’s does, plus beer and bocce on the back patio. Or you could toast to two years of mango lassis at Pub Royale for its Bollywood-themed party. Or do everything. Everything’s an option.

Sarah Freeman is often accused of hiding secrets in her hair. She can make any cocktail, as long as that cocktail is a rye Old Fashioned, and has never met a saison she didn’t like.
