Art, Literature, Ice Cream: It Must Be August in Sag Harbor
Tonight, Eric Fischl will be signing copies of his monograph, Beach Paintings, at the Rizzoli at Empire Gallery (197 Main Street) from 6 to 8 and a few blocks away Colson Whitehead will be signing copies of his novel, Sag Harbor, at Bookhampton (20 Main Street) at 8 o'clock. Keeping it low-key are the congregants of the Old Whaler's Church (44 Union Street), who are holding their annual Ice Cream Social tonight from 5 to 7. Where is the cute sign that they usually display before this, one of my favorite events of the summer? From the looks of the lawn this morning, you wouldn't know that hot dogs, ice cream, carnival games, and pony rides will all be enjoyed in just a few hours. Go here for more information.
