UPPER EAST SIDE, SOHO—Too pretty to eat? No such thing. Chill out with an ice cream sundae—or a les glaces, as the French would say—from Ladurée, which have made their return to the Madison Avenue boutique and are now available at the new location in Soho as well. Ice cream flavors range from the standard chocolate to the more adventurous Violtte and apricot.
GREENPOINT—Book your spot at the upcoming Brooklyn Craft Company party this Thursday, July 24th before spots run out. They'll be making way for fall materials, so expect to find nine crafting stations where you can make items like wooden chevron necklaces, hand-stamped postcards, or dip-dyed sailor bracelets. It's $45, but if you craft with gifting in mind, think of all the money you'll save. You can get your ticket here
