Bastille Day at Bistrot du Coin

Please note: This event has already occurred.
You can't beat this scene for a flat-out party on Bastille Day. Around 11 p.m., tables and chairs are moved out of the way, a DJ cranks house music and, before you know it, people are dancing on the bar while others are singing French songs. Laser lights flash overhead while stilt-walkers dressed as showgirls work their way through the crowd. Lines usually stretch around the block by 9 or 10 p.m. Consider this fair warning.
