Things to do for July 09, 2009

Bastille Day in Tribeca
Angry peasants and/or pétanque players are celebrating French independence by taking over a Tribeca block for a day of French bowling, ‘20s big band jazz, and merguez sausage sandwiches. Pitchforks and torches are optional.
Commissioning Your Own Portrait
In case your self-glorification budget is running a little low, the ostensibly famous LES artist Antony Zito will be churning out watercolor portraits of whoever walks by Gallery Bar for the next few weeks, in exchange for whatever you think its worth to you. Drop the full hundred bucks and you'll get a chance to win a five-foot version of your portrait—which should keep you sufficiently glorified at least through the end of the year.
