Vive la Revolution - Bastille Day on 60th St 7/10!

Was July 4th boring for you? All that American BBQ and parades getting a bit bland? Or are you just aching for crepes and game of p├ętanque?

The French were so inspired by Americans fight for independence, they revolted against their own monarchy a mere ten days later - July 14th marks the storming of the Bastille.

To honor our French comrades who assisted us with our own revolution, New York is holding their own celebrations as part of Bastille Week, starting with Bastille Day on 60th.  

On Sunday, July 10th from 12 - 5PM, you can experience performances, food, games, and a wide selection of French culture. So brush up on your French and get your taste buds ready for some serious wine tastings.

You can also enter an all day raffle for a chance to win a trip to Paris for two!
