Savor a Summer Dessert| Brasserie by Niche

Dine out at Brasserie this weekend and make sure you save room for dessert! One limited-time menu item is their Cherry Almond Vacherin, made of cherry compote, horchata ice cream, almond meringue and almond praline. This creation is only available while cherries are in season, so this weekend is the perfect time to stop by. The other dessert you’ll want to try is their Blueberry and Blackberry Gratin, which features sweet corn ice cream and a berry jam swirl. These flavorful desserts are the perfect way to top of your meal at Brasserie!

Shop Summer Jewelry| Kendra Scott

Have a Summer Sweet Treat| The Cup

The Cup is celebrating the official start of summer with their seasonal special, Summer Crush.

Shop For New Sunglasses| The Eye Bar

Whether you’re out and about the neighborhood more or traveling the world, you may be in need of new sunglasses for summer.
