Things to do for July 12, 2007
The Weekend Starts Here
Bastille Day weekend—like every other weekend, just with an accent.
The 2007 Hampton SOCIAL @ Ross concert series (high) rolls into East Hampton this Saturday with none other than Prince. The bargain basement price of $15,000 buys you the most talked about ticket in town and a seat at five small venue shows throughout the summer: Prince, Dave Matthews, Billy Joel, James Taylor and Tom Petty.
Make an exception to your "never trust a man with no last name" rule: trench coats, bombers, button downs and pullovers starting at $30.
Simon Hammerstein's LES vaudeville hipsterluxe club introduces a new weekend dinner show, complete with a three-course Jewish comfort food meal and a "mystery" show. Sounds like Passover.
Bastille Day means nothing without some good old fashioned petanque...more than 80 teams will converge in Brooklyn for the largest petanque tourney in the country. Add some merguez sausages from Bar Tabac and cocktails from Ricard and you just might have yourself a tres good time.
Films at Tompkins Debuts
New entrant into the outdoor movie scene "Films at Tompkins" kicks off on Wednesday in Tompkins Square Park with the Indiana Jones classic Raiders of the Lost Ark. Bring a blanket and your finest whip.
