Pop the Pernod



Brooklyn Diner in Paris, and the fact that Cobble Hill is the perennial host of the biggest Bastille Day celebration in the United States. This year, Bar Tabac’s famous petanque tournament is back, with teams from all over the world competing in a special sand court set up on Smith Street. There will also be live music, pastis drinks, food and prizes to help you celebrate France’s independence in style. You can also party-hop, because Fort Greene’s Chez Oskar will be throwing its own Francophile fête, replete with another outdoor petanque tourney, Can-Can dancers, a Robespierre photo booth and a specially-crafted $35 prix-fixe menu. Or, get started the night before, on Saturday, July 13 at Roebling Tea Room. Chef Dennis Spina returns from his new digs at River Styx in Greenpoint to serve up a his annual weirdly, wonderfully French menu for the evening. After dinner, the disco ball goes on; reservations are available. 718-963-0760. Il sera une fête formidable, oui?
