Welcome to Girls Talk, in which two of our favorite New Yorkers share the text messages they sent during this week’s episode of Girls.
A lot happened in the Girls universe recently: Lena Dunham hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend and announced the pub date for her book, Adam Driver was reportedly cast as the next Star Wars foe, Allison Williams got engaged, and Jemima Kirke has a four-page photo spread in the current issue of New York. Because Hannah spent most of the last episode with family, it feels like it’s been a while since we’ve seen the gang.
The text in gray belongs to Clinton Hill’s Allison Kave, founder of First Prize Pies. Tomorrow night at Nitehawk Cinema is the release party for her first cookbook, First Prize Pies: Shoo-Fly, Candy Apple, and Other Deliciously Inventive Pies for Every Week of the Year (and More).
The text in blue belongs to Kumquat Cupcakery founder Keavy Landreth, who lives in Crown Heights. That’s where she and Kave will open Butter & Scotch — “Brooklyn’s first dessert and cocktail bar” — this summer. Until then, you can purchase their treats at Smorgasburg and stores citywide.
