Petanque in the Park

A fun afternoon with the family on Friday, as we squared off in a game of Petanque (aka Boules) in Bryant Park. For the record, Dad and I won. Also, I came up with a marketing slogan if my Mom follows through on her idea to promote Petanque among women: You Don't Need Balls to Play Boules. These guys from La Boule New Yorkaise are nice enough to set up four courts every day (Monday-Friday from 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM) for free. And unlike in France, where the old men are too intimidating to approach for a game, it's a little easier here. So if anyone wants to meet up with me and play during lunch time, let me know.


  1. You should get leather flip flops.

  3. I'll school you in petanque and talk trash in French. Bring it.
