August 22 is Dottie’s birthday, and we always celebrate it in a style that would befit her. We have two events in two Boroughs that are open to all. Our third annual Dorothy Parker Birthday Party at the New York Distilling Company will be Thursday, Aug. 21, at 6-9pm. Of course, this is where Dorothy Parker American Gin comes from, and a martini made with it can’t be beat. There will be specials, sample the spirits they distill at the Brooklyn operation, and come prepared to read your favorite Parker poems. We’ll be in The Shanty, the cozy pub attached to the distilling operation. Address: 405 Leonard Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11211. (21 and above). On Friday, August 22, 121 years after the blessed event, we’ll have lunch at the Round Table of the Algonquin Hotel. If you want to attend, RSVP to: kevin (at) dorothyparker (dot) com. Meet in the Algonquin restaurant at noon, 59 West 44th Street, New York, NY, 10036.
