Bastille Day: Break out the berets, play some petanque, and celebrate Bastille Day in Brooklyn. Smith Street − from Bergen to Pacific Streets − will be cleared of traffic and replaced with tons of sand and about 18 homemade petanque courts, and Bar Tabac (128 Smith St.) will be serving brunch from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Eggs Bar Tabac with ratatouille and merguez sausage is not to be missed.

Pool Parties: The popular McCarren Park Pool Parties move to the waterfront, as the free shows kick off at the East River State Park (North 8th and Kent streets) with Mission of Burma, Fucked Up and Ponytail. There won't be any slip 'n slide, but dodgeball will be there, as will three-on-three basketball.
