WHIT And Cointreau Team Up For A Round Of Pétanque

by Zachary Weiss

From Friday’s Louis Vuitton blowout at the MoMA and Indochine’s 30th anniversary bash to Brian Atwood’s Saturday celebration of Donald Robertson, one would hope that a bit of recovery might be in the cards for Sunday. Alas, this wasn’t the case…

Sunday afternoon involved a twist on the average boozy brunch when WHIT’s Whitney Pozgay took over The New Marble Cemetery in the East Village for cocktails and pétanque, aka the chicer version of bocce. “I love outdoor gatherings and classic lawn games. We partnered with Cointreau for the event and pétanque was a perfect match with their French heritage,” Pozgay told us before jumping back into her match alongside her hubby. “We were excited to throw a fall party outdoors before it gets too chilly, and this was a great way to keep everyone moving. Those who don’t feel like playing can paint the balls in the ‘paint your own’ Pétanque kits that we made.” Sure enough, Hanuk Hanuk, Donna D’Cruz, and a bevy of cool kids had set up a little powwow area lounging on the lawn to collaborate on their pétanque designs and snack on a full spread of brunch bites (along with cocktails, of course).

“This time of year, when the weather is transitioning, I like drinks that are not too heavy, but that hint at autumn flavors,” Pozgay told The Daily while gearing up to toss one of her WHIT-designed pétanque balls out onto the field, “We picked a Cointreau Rickey with honey, thyme, and ginger for this fall party.” Needless to say, the bash was a hit.
