Joyful weekend: celebrate Bastille Day early

By Ingrid Fetell Lee


If you happen to be in Brooklyn or a subway ride away, add some joy to your weekend by celebrating Bastille Day two days early this Sunday on Smith St. As usual, the street will be covered with sand for the world’s largest petanque tournament, and the rosé and Ricard will be flowing.

I’m tempted to wax poetic about the various joyous elements of this event (celebration! freedom! the wonderful weirdness of sand between your toes in the middle of downtown Brooklyn!) but it’s 5:30 on a Friday so I’ll refrain. The event runs from 2pm-10pm, near Bar Tabac off the Bergen St. F stop.

Happy weekend, and hope to see you there!
