Will you think less of me if I tell you that I really enjoy the book Eat, Pray, Love? When it was first released and uber-popular I hesitated reading it because, well it was uber-popular and I had some pretentious, absurd notion that really popular and good were mutually exclusive. I read it when it came out in paperback and kind of loved it. It’s one of a handful of books I like to reread every year (the others are Atchafalaya Houseboat, A Moveable Feast, Shopgirl).

Carmichael’s and Gelato Gilberto are teaming up to celebrate the release of the film version of Eat, Pray, Love with a little sidewalk gelato sale on the evening the film opens.

On Friday, August 13th Carmichael’s and Gelato Gilberto celebrate the opening of the movie Eat, Pray, Love (Baxter Avenue Theaters).

Gelato Gilberto will set up a cart outside our Bardstown Road store beginning at 5 PM to offer their delicious artisan gelato in a variety of flavors.

Carmichael’s will have copies of Elizabeth Gilbert’s beloved book with the new movie cover featuring Julia Roberts on the “eat” part of her journey – in Italy enjoying gelato.
