Alas, the time has come to say goodbye to July. But, before we do, we can't help but indulge ourselves with the dessert of the month one last time. And take full advantage of all the summer sample sales. And maybe even do a good deed or two. Heck, if August turns out to be anything like this past month has been, we're in for a treat.
Get the scoop.
July is almost over, which means ice cream month is almost over. Before the end, discover the science behind your favorite summer treat. Stef Ferrari, founder of Hay Rosie, will be on hand at STORY NYC tonight to provide the scoop on all things ice cream.
When: Monday, July 28 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: STORY NYC, 144 Tenth Avenue, at 19th Street; 212-242-4853.
Go minimalist.
Yes, Helmut Lang is currently having a sweet sale online, but this week, the label is ALSO hosting a women's sample sale in Soho. We'd say the likelihood that we'll be perusing both is high to very high.
When: Today through Wednesday, July 30 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Where: 462 West Broadway (between Houston and Prince streets).
Pick up a book.
David Zwirner's fifth annual pop-up bookstore closes at the end of this week, so be sure to pop in before its doors shut for good. The annual shop — co-hosted with ARTBOOK | D.A.P. — offers a selection of signed artist catalogues, new publications, DVDs, posters, and more.
When: Today through Friday, August 1 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Where: 525 West 19th Street (between Tenth and Eleventh avenues); 212-727-2070.
Taste Southern Dutch cuisine.
Chef Andrew Little of Nashville's Josephine is coming to New York City to show us what his unique cooking style is all about. Expect dishes akin to Grilled Chicken Livers with Charred Onion and Pepper Jelly, Rainbow Carrots with Curry Granola, and Pretzel Rolls.
When: Tuesday, July 29 at 7:30 p.m.
Where: CITY GRIT, 38 Prince Street (between Mott and Mulberry streets).
Tickets: $55 to $95.
Join a cultural movement.
The folks behind TipBombing just want you to listen to some great music and make someone's day. Following the success of their first TipBombing, the group will be gathering again this week to surprise another applause-worthy artist with a massive tip.
When: Wednesday, July 30 at 8:30 p.m.
Where: Times Square Subway Station, entrance at 42nd Street and Seventh Avenue.
Shop Bottega.
Bottega Veneta is hosting a two-day sample sale this week. And, based on the chosen location, we're predicting there will be plenty in store. This one's credit-card-only, so be ready to swipe after you've picked up your favorite accessories, shoes, and bags.
