Peaky Blinders returns in style for its sixth and final season: The Shelby family is back with more gritty, intriguing, yet less violent episodes this time around. Fans of the 1900s gangster English show have been following the notorious family since 2013 from their street gang days in Birmingham to becoming one of Britain's most influential business empires, all due to the ambition of one man, Thomas Shelby (masterfully played by Cillian Murphy). The final season of Peaky Blinders brings satisfying closure to the personal demons that had been tormenting the Shelby brothers over the years, and sets up what is sure to be an epic feud with fascists in the upcoming film.
An upcoming feature-length movie could be in the works, creator Steven Knight told Deadline. “I can say that my plan from the beginning was to end Peaky with a movie. That is what is going to happen,” he said, without revealing more details on when the movie could start production.

🍦 EAT THIS TONIGHT-
We’re firm believers that there's nothing good ice cream can't fix, and Gelato Eden being a testament to that. The ice cream parlor in New Cairo’s Dyar Mall has 24 flavors to choose from, including some quite unique options such as sweet potatoes, guava, and chili mango. We particularly loved the greek yogurt flavor, which we recommend you try. Take your family out for the classic summer outing this week and grab a cone of Italian gelato. The parlor also serves hot and cold coffee, which is always a plus.

💡 UNDER THE LAMPLIGHT-
In his final work of nonfiction, the late Barry Lopez urges us to Embrace Fearlessly the Burning World. The iconic environmental writer’s essay collection combines new and old work with memories, stories, reflections and meditations on landscape. In its essence, this book is here to remind us of the importance of remaining wholly present to the beauty and complexity surrounding us on this planet. Lopez writes lyrically about the way we use and destroy the world and each other, and urges us to pay attention. “Each place is itself only, and nowhere repeated. Miss it and it’s gone,” he wrote.
